RTOWA WISHES ALL MTNL EMPLOYEES AND ALL PENSIONERS A VERY HAPPY GANESH CHATURTHI !

*****************************************************************************************************************

06/08/2014 :- In the evening we came to know that Pension is being released. Credits will be by 08/08/014 positively. We are continuously in touch with officers as well as Delhi Unit. We will ensure that the pension payment is taken over by DoT as early as possible.

 

06/08/2014 :-  To day we issued the same email to Ministers and others with the caption "REMINDER-1"  We are considering launching of some agitation from Monday onwards if payment is not made by that time.                                                                                                    

05/08/2014 :- Today we issued letter to Hon'ble Minister for C & IT Shri.Ravi Shankar Prasad, Hon'ble Minister for Pensioners Welfare Dr. Jitendra Singh thro email. The copy of the email was sent to Secretary DoT, Member (Fin) DoT, Member Services DoT, and to CMD MTNL. The text of the mail is as under:-

Respected Sir,                                                            

We, the pensioners, retired from Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited submit the following grievances :-

Our pension is payable by Central Government i.e., Department of Telecom as per the amended Rule 37A of CCS Pension Rules. However the work has not been taken over by DoT so far. During this long transition period the pension is paid by MTNL and some portion of the payment is reimbursed by DoT based on liability sharing arrangement.  

The MTNL and DoT are at loggerheads regarding this temporary arrangement. Consequently the pensioners are harassed by undue delay in payment of pension. For instance :- 

1.Our pension for the month of July’2014 has not been paid till date. More than 11000 pensioners in Mumbai are facing severe financial strains. Many pensioners are forced to take loans for subsistence.

2..Moreover those who retired from April ‘2014 onwards have not been paid any pensionary benefits such as gratuity, commutation and pension

 Sir, we request your personal in
