The informal meeting with the representative of Unions/ Associations was held today at 15:00 Hrs to discuss the curtailment of wasteful expenditure in BSNL. Representatives of BSNLEU, NFTE, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, FNTO, BSNL ATM and BSNL OA participated. The Unions strongly protested against the move of curtailment of medical facility by reducing no. of days from 25 to 15 days on the pretext of curtailment of wasteful expenditure; and categorically told that BSNL MRS was approved by BSNL Board and now cannot be amended by administrative orders and it cannot be a wasteful expenditure. After detailed discussions GM (Budget) BSNL CO assured no curtailment in BSNL MRS facility. He also assured that the necessary order w.r.t. medical claims will be issued shortly w.e.f. 01.04.2018 for BSNL pensioners.
