GS writes to CMD regarding Creation of Benevolent Fund towards helping the family members of the deceased BSNL employees - due to Covid 19 ..... View letter dated 06-05-21 and  View letter dated 10-05-21.



Today discussed with Dir Hr Shri. Arvind Vadnerkar on two important issues
1.Payment of salary
2.Extension of APAR date.
Director HR responded positively on extension of APAR date. On payment of this month Salary, he told that he will take update from Finance wing and inform accordingly.- 


Today (06.May.2021) a meeting on zoom was held by corporate office comprising of representatives of management and Unions/Associations. It was attended by leaders from SNEA, BSNLEU, NFTE , AIGETOA and SEWA. From mgmt side PGM P, Sr GM Admin, Sr. GM F CFA, GM SR participated. From SNEA side our CHQ President participated. Following issues were discussed. 

1.  On the feedback received from unions/ associations and looking to the field situation due to Covid, it was informed that mgmt intends to make benevolent fund for its employees. It was informed that around 100 deaths have already taken place. Thus we can make a corpus by taking into consideration around 200 deaths.( We pray to Almighty that this should not be the case).

2. We demanded that Salary has to be paid immediately in view of unprecedented covid situation as our employees are going through a very tough situation.

3. One day salary may be donated on voluntary basis to the benevolent fund for the deaths resulting because of COVID. Rest matching contribution of 50% has to paid by BSNL. The deceased family must be given Rs Ten lakh each as an immediate measure and department should not divert this fund elsewhere at any cost. It must be ensured that the deceased family should get the benifit of this measure irrespective of fund availibilty in future also.As an immediate measure it was felt that Rs 10 lakhs may be disbursed to the family of deceased this month only.

4. All the pending payments regarding SAB, EPF/GPF, medical and other benifits must be paid immediately by the department and SAB contribution may be enhanced to 30% immediately.

5.  In future also we may think of contributing some amount to the benevolent fund on monthly basis like Rs. 100/200 on regular basis.An equal contribution may be made from BSNL side also.

6. The issue of compassionate  appointment to the family of deceased was raised by one and all with full thrust and emphasised that board should immediately revoke banning of compassionate appointment. The same may be given top priority. Mgmt told that they will apprise our feed back to the top mgmt to decide on the matter at the earliest.
