While answering to a question in Rajya Sabha on 24th March 2917 regarding the Dearness Allowance to BSNL Staff and Officers, Minister Shri Upendra Kushwaha said as follows…
In Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited(BSNL),on the basis of recommendations of Second Pay Revision Committee for revision of pay scales for Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSE) with effect from 01.01.2007, the benefit of merger of 50% DA (Dearness Allowance) effectively amounting to 78.2% for the purposes of fitment is being paid. The additional expenditure being incurred due to revision is being borne by BSNL.
Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) has recommended to Department of Telecommunications (DoT) for extending the benefit of merger of 50% DA effectively amounting to 78.2% for which it has sought full financial support from the DoT due to its present financial situation. The proposal of MTNL has been examined and it has been observed that there will be financial implications of Rs.140 Crores per annum towards additional burden on salaries and around Rs.1136 crores for payment of arrears. Further there will be financial implications on account of pensionary benefits to be paid by Government. As per DPE (Department of Public Enterprises) guidelines the CPSE concern has to bear the additional financial implication on account of pay revision from their own resources.
