BSNL Pension Rule Under 7th Pay Commission :

  • Retirees from BSNL who have retired from their service before and after June 2013 had a big rift between the pension benefits that was set by the Cabinet Ministry. Pensioners who have retired prior to June 2013 were not getting proper benefits as the retirees who have retired after June 2013 are receiving.
  • There were many demand and requests had been coming seeking the assurance from the government to revise the amount of the pension benefits for the BSNL pensioners and family pensioners from different quarters. That leads the Cabinet Ministry to nod for the revision of the pensions.
  • In one of the recent meetings Cabinet Ministry has declared about the revision of the pension of the BSNL pensioners as well as family pensioners. In the meeting the authority has said that employees who have retired before June 2013 will be able to receive 50% dearness allowances along with basic pension amount. The disbursement of the pension and other process will be supervised by BSNL authority only.
  • The dearness allowances will be merged under the liability of BSNL for the employees retired before 2013. The rate of merged allowances will be 78.2%. On the other the DCR, leave encashment and such will not be changed any further.
  • The pensioners from the following departments (a) Department of Telecommunication, (b) Department of Telecom Services and (c) Department of Telecom Operations who have retired from their services before 1st October 2000 will receive the pension from the Government of India. Here BSNL will not bear any liability of the pension disbursement or any procedure.
  • People who are being absorved by the telecommunication organisation BSNL will be getting the pension liability from BSNL only. According to the FR – 116, the pension benefits will be borne by the BSNL only for the span of time they work or worked under BSNL.
  • The revision will bring up the cost of the government as the amount of pension benefits will get hiked after this revision. However the long pending revision of pension problems will now be solved and pensioners and family pensioners will get more benefits after their retirement.
  • The total amount of pension benefits were paid to the pensioners at the time of 2013 – 14 was 129.63 Cr for the pensioners and 24.93 Cr for the family pensioners. Now after the revision the amount will be paid to the 1, 18, 500 numbers of pensioners in the country 239.92 Cr for the pensioners and 44.62 Cr for the family pensioners.
  • With this revision of the pensioners, the anomalies will be prevented and also the extra burden of the monetary loss on BSNL will be reduced radically. As after the revision it has been said that the government will bear some of the pensions and BSNL will not be liable for pension benefits so it will bring down the financial burden from BSNL largely.
  • After the revision now the pensioners will be getting same amount of benefits as the workers under BSNL are receiving. The revision of DA, basic Pension and other benefits will be made to provide same advantages as a current employee is receiving from the company.
