The interactive session of Associations and Unions with the Superannuation Committee was held yesterday to discuss the superannuation benefits to direct recruits. AIGETOA was represented by GS shri Ravi Shil Verma, President Shri R.P. Shahu, AGS Shri Amit Roy and Special Invitee Shri Surendra Mahar.
It was emphasized by BSNL Management that present contribution towards superannuation is 19.5% of Basic + IDA which includes EPF:12%, Gratuity:4.5% and Medical Scheme:3% and only 10.5 % is balance. Management Side further said that they can give only 2% as BSNL. However, the argument of Management that they are contributing 19.5% was very well nullified by us.
In the end, the viewpoints of AIGETOA were appreciated by management side also. All Unions and Associations also demanded that contribution from BSNL should be 12% as per the orders of the DPE and anything less than that is not acceptable.
AIGETOA conveys its gratitude to all the unions and associations for supporting us in discussions. We are especially thankful to GS AIBSNLEA and GS BSNLEU for delivering a nicely prepared and a very enthusiastic speech in support of our contention of 12 % contribution and taking lead on the matter.
A Special thanks to Shri P. Abhimanyu, General Secretary, BSNL EU, for writing a letter to GM (Establishment) today requesting BSNL management to contribute atleast 12% towards the superannuation fund.
