[28.08.2012]78.2% IDA fixation and NE 12 pay scale approved by BSNL Board
CHQ informs with great jubilation that both the 78.2% IDA fixation, as well as the NE 12 pay scale, have been approved in the Board of Directors meeting, that took place today. The 78.2% IDA fixation issue will now go for the approval of the DOT, which we will try to get as early as possible.
CHQ congratulates the entire Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL, whose unwavering preparedness to go on the indefinite strike clinched the 78.2% IDA fixation settlement. We also sincerely thank all the Directors of the BSNL Board, especially, shri R.K.Upadhyay, CMD, shri K.C.G.K.Pillai, Director (Finance) and shri A.N.Rai, Director (HR), for this approval by the Board.
Undoubtedly, the 78.2% IDA fixation is a very big achievement. Such an achievement cannot even be dreamed of in any other company, whether in Public Sector or in Private Sector, under such a deteriorating financial condition. The total unity of the Non-Executives and Executives is the basis of this achievement. Let us strengthen this unity in the days to come.
It may be recollected that ‘some of the so called trade union leaders’ criticized this settlement, and were declaring from roof- tops, that ‘Agreement on 78.2% IDA fixation’ will never be implemented, and that the Management has cheated the Forum Leaders. They stand exposed now. The employees should be cautious about such ‘elements’ in future.
