  • Homage.   Organic Agriculturist Nammazwar..His demise is a great loss to the Indian Agri Movement
  • 30-12-13:We congratulate MTNL Unions for their arduous struggle to get Govt pension from Govt as per 37A . We appreciate the MTNL management for winning the case of Pensionary Contribution from Actual Pay w.e.f 1-1-06 and the approval of cabinet has been cleared for the same. Then why discrimination for BSNL alone and compelling us to continue in FR116 on the Maximum Pay.. We should also be permitted to pay our contribution as per actual pay since 1-1-06 and the remitted contribution over and above should be adjusted for future payment.. This would cause us to save some hundreds of crores and help us to find a way for the settlement of stagnation issue also..  We hope that Forum of our Unions should take serious attention on this issue  and take up the case with BSNL , DOT and MOF

  • 28-10-13: Oct 30th Fast For Bonus:It is not that just because NFTE is recognized, one should get Bonus. Everyone knows that NFTE has no such magical Wand to bring it thro tricks.. NFTE is dutifully demanding the Bonus, from its rightful position of Recognition. There is no bilateral agreement as on date in BSNL between Recognized Union/unions and Management on the issue of Bonus. Just some concurred DOT instructions..And BSNL orders on MOU and Profit basis for PLI.. Which one is erroneous as per DPE GUIDELINES?
  • Let us echo our strong sentiment on 0ct 30th, the day of fast/ repentance.. Don’t make BSNL Employees an Outcaste in the Region of BONUS.. Let this voice be clear and louder
  • Even American Parliament is set ready to celebrate Deepawali as a mark of respect to Indian cultural sentiments. Our BSNL Management, of course politely saying no to our claim of restoration of Bonus and would issue words of wishes. BSNL claims that their new strategy is to monetize everything to thrive on business but CMD and the remuneration Committee fails to understand our expectation to monetize our ordinary desire.. Are we so greedy to demand Bonus, that Costs not even more than 70 Crores.. Management has taken away 400 Crores in the way of MRS and 100 Cr in the name of LTC Cut and even 1000s of crores arrears of 78.2 still pending.  Even after all these, Workers are generous to contribute 18 cr to Utharakant.. Management is not reciprocating and failed to understand to gauge our sentiment of getting some bonus .. Indian ethos are not weighing things only on profit –loss basis, it is primarily based on mutual Bonds/ Bondage and one cannot  feel this  in Western type of corporate culture.

  • 22-10-13:As per the Bonus Act, all those workmen below the basic of 10000 should be given Bonus 3500. No profit mercy is needed for this. Moreover customary Bonus is also a concept that makes us eligible as per the Bonus act, not linking profit. Airport Authorities are giving customary Bonus as Festival allowance.New formula can be evolved by discussion but getting Bonus before Deepawali is having its own urgency.All that needed is united approach and struggle to achieve our proper dues, however meager it may be.. Can we?
  • Our CHQ leadership is trying their best to impress upon management that Bonus issue cannot be set aside and clarified that quantum need not be an issue to nullify Bonus. DPE has clarified that PLI is nothing connected with the question of Profit and well within the ceiling of perks of 50 % Basic.  As per this clarification 30 % HRA places are due with 36 % (for 2011-12 and 2012-13  18+18) of Basic,  20% HRA places employees  are due with 56% and 10 % HRA places employees are having due with 76 % of their Basic as Bonus.  No Profit mercy is needed for this.
