The National Confederation of Central Government Employees, an organization affiliated with INTUC, had its national working committee meeting in New Delhi on 27-7-2016. Shri M Raghavaiah, President of NFIR and National Council Staff Side is the chairman of this National Confederation also. Shri M K Beeran, one of our leaders in Kerala stationed at Calicut, attended the said working committee and raised the issue of revision of BSNL pension along with the other central service pensioners. Shri Beeran reports that Shri Raghavaiah appreciated the argument and accepted the position that BSNL retirees are also central government pensioners. Shri Beeran reports further that Shri Raghavaiah agreed to take up the case with the Government.
We appreciate the initiative taken by Shri Beeran in the matter. Let us hope that leaders like Shri Raghavaiah will realize the facts, urgency of the matter and do needful.
