Greetings of BSNL Foundation Day: Its matter of pride for all of us that today BSNL has completed 23 years. Since its foundation in Year 2000. The Journey of BSNL started as Strong PSU since 01/10/2000 and over the years BSNL has seen many up and downs including the worst days after VRS 2019 and Corona Period.

After two revival packages by GoI/DoT and day/night efforts BSNL Management and its Executives/Non-Executives, as of now BSNL is moving forward with positive growth and it has recorded operation profit for the last continuous three years.

The Telecom sector as a whole is facing serious issues and threats and many Telecom companies have undergone these threats and the very existence of many Telecom Companies is at stake and many Telecom companies are struggling hard for its survivals.

But our beloved BSNL has till now sustained this pressure of Telecom Market and has been successful in gaining confidence of GoI/DoT and Telecom customers. BSNL is instrumental in implementation of the digital India Project by GoI.

It is matter of pride that with love and strong support of Majority of the executives in BSNL, first time in the history of BSNL any association/union has crossed barrier of 50% Vote in Membership Verification.

Now, SNEA is the only association with status of Recognized Representative Association in BSNL as no other associations has crossed barrier of minimum 35% eligibility votes for becoming recognized association.

Update on EPF Higher Pension Issues: SNEA team comprising Mrs. Anu Agrawal CP SNEA CO and Shri Praveen Kataria, ACS SNEA CO Shri. M. S. Adasul, GS SNEA had two different meetings on 25 & 26/09/2023 with Shri. Rajiv Singh, PGM CA BSNL CO, Shri. Jagdeep Singh DGM CA BSNL CO and Shri. Gulshan Kumar AGM CA BSNL CO discussed the issues related to EPF Higher Pension and shared difficulties faced by individuals and Nodal Officers of BSNL in submitting EPF Higher pension and overall pendency of final submission of EPF higher pension cases to EPFO before last date 30/09/2023.

We narrated that though some Circles are taking proactive actions and no case is pending in some of Circles, some of Circles are facing certain issues on part of BSNL or EPFO and also some of circles are not serious on it to complete the work by given deadline 30/09/2023.

We requested to take up matter with Circle Heads/IFAs by special letter for completing this task in time bound manner. Initially there was reluctance on part of PGM CA to issue any such instructions as already every issue is made clear to all IFAs/Nodal Officers and they are duty bound to complete the task.

PGM CA informed that Circles like Telangana and Maharashtra have settled all cases and hence there should not be any issue on part of any other Circle and only required is that they have to take up issues with Circle EPF Office and resolve the issues. 

We elaborated how the specific issues are faced by BSNL Nodal Officers and individuals in submission of higher option.

In many cases where the executives were transferred during their service are facing issues at the data at earlier Circle/s is not updated. PGM CA further informed the issues with EPFO or with portal of EPFO are to be resolved proactively by the Circle EPF Nodal officers and Circle IFAs of BSNL and there is no role on part of BSNL Corporate Office and till any issue Nodal Officers have to contact BSNL Corporate office EPF team.

We elaborated classic examples wherein the BSNL Nodal officer have submitted mismatching data and not able to correct it and DGM CA informed that all these issues will be taken care by EPFO Nodal officers who are nominated for BSNL activities and it is responsibility of Circle Nodal officer to get it resolved.

PGM CA specifically mentioned that every issue of EPF Higher pension is to be taken care by the present Nodal Officer and no employee/executive should be made to run from pillar to post. He added that his office has made entire data available in ERP and nothing is left to add in it.

We have drawn attention on the issued faced by Kerala Circle wherein many cases are not visible on EPFO Portal and DGM CA has taken up matter with EPFO Delhi and immediate email instructions are passed by EPFO Delhi to EPFO Kerala to settle the issues.

We have also narrated that similar cases are noticed by Circles like Karnataka and it was directed that these Circles also should follow action taken by Kerala Circle by writing similar letter to Regional EPF Officers with copy to BSNL Nodal Officer at Delhi and assured to resolve all such cases by taking up with EPFO HQ and regional offices.  

Considering the deadline set by EPFO for completion of verification of EPF and Pension Contribution Data for Higher Pension submission to be on 30/09/2023 and pendency of cases, we requested for taking up matter with EPFO for extension of last date for submission of EPF Higher pension option. PGM CA assured to take up this matter and informed that due to pendency of certain cases the last date will be extended by three months and official announcement may be done by EPFO shortly.

We further requested to issue directions to all CGMs so that extraordinary measures may be taken by Circle/BA units to expedite the verification process on war footing level and it was assured to issue reminder letter with Circle wise number of pending cases and expediating process so as to complete it in given time. 

Further to get the issues clarified from EPFO Delhi, the BSNL team headed by DGM CA BSNL CO visited EPF Office on 26/09/2023 morning hours and have taken up all such issues with EPFO Delhi and have got firm assurance for approving all EPF Higher pension by resolution of pending issues if any in any Circle.

As per our discussions and persuasion till now, we are hopeful that every issue related to EPF higher pension option is being taken care by BSNL and pending issues will be taken care in coming days.

All the EPF Members are requested to visit their Account on EPF Portal and check for their higher pension option status if that have submitted option. If it is still pending, he/she may take up it with BA/Circle Nodal officers who in turn will take up cases with EPFO Regional officers and get issued cleared. Till issues are not resolved, one can apply for grievance redressal through EPF Portal so that matter is officially registered with EPFO and issues are resolved in time bound manner.

If any EPFO member is facing any issue and not getting support/guidance on pending cases of Higher Pension Option, he/she may send details by what’s app to Mrs. Anu Agarwal CP SNEA BSNL CO on 9429893873 so that issues can be taken with appropriate offices and resolved in given time.
