                                        The office bearers met the previous Principal CCA Shri J.K.Ghai who has retired on 31/03/2015 at 11 AM and greeted with a bouquet. Then the team met the present Principal CCA Shri Manish Pathak and discussed about various problems. He conveyed the following information to our team.

1) About 450 PPOs have been issued so far for those who retired after 31/03/2014.

2) Efforts are on to issue PPOs for the remaining cases before 15th May, 2015.

3) About 630 cases of retirees who have retired prior to 01/04/2014 have been received from MTNL for issue of DOT PPOs.

4) 'No dues certificate' has not been received from MTNL for releasing the 10% Gratuity.

5) Arrears of Pension will not be paid by DOT as the orders for payment of Govt. pension is w.e.f. 01/04/2014 only.

Our team insisted that the Bifurcation of Pension shown in the new PPO as DOT Portion and MTNL Portion may be removed.

                         Then at 2 P.M. the Executive Committee Meeting was held in Telephone House. The above information was conveyed by the General Secretary Shri Pathak to the committee. Various suggestions were given by the members for achieving our demands of 'Getting the DOT PPO issued to all early' and 'Payment of Arrears of Pension'.

DOT PPOs have been issued to all those retired up to 28th, February, 2015 in Delhi. About 500 old cases (Retired before 01/04/2014) have been verified and are ready for the issue of new PPO. He also stressed that some strong action is to be taken if the arrears of pension is to be paid.



                               It has been assured by the CCA that I.T. Calculations presuming every pensioner qualified for 1.5 Laks under 80C, has been done in this month and tax recovered. Before July-2015 proof should be given and actual savings under 80C will be considered. Orders are under issue in this regard. The documents should be given at Curry Road.

                                 The office bearers met the officers of Pension Cell at Curry Road, G.M. ( Finance) at Telephone House and CCA at Juhu on 11/03/2015.

                         Preparation of PPO work is at very slow pace at Curry Road.

                         G.M. (Fin) agreed to issue " No due certificate " very soon for all those retired after 01/04/2014, so that the with held gratuity can be released by DoT Pension Cell. He also agreed that the tax savings information will be accepted by all the Areas before issuing Form - 16 for current year.

                        Mr. Manish Pathak CCA at Juhu office agreed :-

1. To ensure credit of pension to all the retirees on due date,

2. To assign a toll free telephone number for pensioners to interact with the Pension Cell,

3. To resume SMS intimation of remittance of pension,

4. To examine ruling position to issue Form - 16 for two months to the retirees before 31/03/2015.

However the CCA expressed his inability to speed up the work of preparation of PPO. We will take up the issue with Member ( Fin ).

                     DoT has written to CMD on 27/01/2015 to pay arrears of pension to those retired before 01/01/2007 but to adjust the paid amount against future liabilities of MTNL to DoT. It is learnt that CMD has written back to DoT requesting to give funds in advance for payment of arrears as MTNL has no money.

                 A letter also has been written to the Principal CCA for settling various issues. To view the letter please CLICK HERE
