Media reports:

"Answering a question in Lok Sabha, the Honourable Minister for Communications said that the matter of extension of 78.2% IDA for pension revision is UNDER CONSIDERATION."


The File on 78.2% IDA for Pension Revision is still in Sanchar Bhavan only.

For the last eight months, it is travelling from one Section to another Section.

Some times, within the same Section from an officer at the top to another officer down.

For them it is only a FILE. For more than one lakh Retirees it is LIFE.


As per reliable source of informations to us
that Member Finance DOT has given her FINAL CLEARANCE to 78.2% IDA
Pension Revision Cabinet Memo on Friday 5-6-15.

Now the cabinet memo has to go to Secretary DOT and after that to Minister of Communication for their  approval. There will not be much delay with them since the Member Fincance has approved the file.

Thereafter the cabinet memo will be forwarded to nodal ministries for their approval simultaneously. They have 15 days time to reply.  if there is no reply from them within that period it will be assumed that there is no objection for this proposal from them.

Then the cabinet memo will be put up to cabinet for its approval.

we hope that all these process will be completed within 2 months time 
and the orders will be issued after that.

let us hope for the best.

Free National Roaming on BSNL from June 15, Says IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad


NEW DELHI: The state-run telecom Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited will offer free national roaming from June 15, Union minister for Communications Ravi Shankar Prasad said today.Spectrum sharing and trading policy to go to Cabinet this month and full mobile portability will be given from July, he added. The minister was briefing the media today regarding the achievements of his ministry as part of the programmes to mark the Narendra Modi government's first year in office. Ever since it came to power, the NDA government has promised free roaming. It was also promised by its predecessor, the UPA government.
Earlier this year, Vodafone and Reliance announced plans to reduce the roaming charges to a minimum. The BSNL was expected to introduce plans for free roaming in January.In May, BSNL had slashed roaming tariff by up to 40% for its prepaid and postpaid mobile connection following a telecom tariff order issued by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India.
The minister said both state-run operators - BSNL and the MTNL - have been showing losses. In 2004, BSNL showed a profit of Rs. 10,000 crore, the minister said. "In 2014, when I took charge, BSNL showed a loss of Rs. 7,500 crore. The MTNL was in profit till 2008, when I took charge... it showed losses." But he said MTNL is now on the mend.
Good governance, the minister said, became a casualty "as far as these PSUs are concerned," and those sitting in Sanchar bhavan will have to "apportion blame".
