It is gathered that management committee of BSNL Board approved the proposal of 3rd pay revision with full 15% fitment w.e.f. 01-01-2017. The IDA will be neutralized as on 31-12-2016. The proposal will be now placed before the remuneration committee of BSNL board headed by an external Director before sending to the BSNL Board. There is apprehension amongst the Unions that the government is firm in not settling Wage Revision for BSNL employees.
