The 60:40 ratio was introduced vide letter No.-1-45/2003-B, dt-15-03-2005. The NFTE has been constantly representing and pursuing the matter for withdrawal of orders issued on 15-06-2006 at the instance of Ministry Finance. Due to this even pension of pre 13-06-2013 retirees was not being revised. The attention of Honble Prime Minister was finally drawn vide union letter No.-TF-11/3, dt-08-01-2016. The ceaseless pursuance by NFTE brought the result and now orders dt 15-06-2006 have been declared redundant. “Pension is no tension” now as Govt will pay the same. NFTE is thankful to Govt for safe guarding the future of employees.
25-07-2016 : PLI and alleged controversy:-The NFTE is not at all interested in raising and mentioning the controversy on the issue of PLI. But fact remains that due to sustained persuation of NFTE the management first time agreed to pay the PLI for year 2014-15. Accordingly the meeting was fixed for 30th March, 2016 for the purpose. The official side placed a formula in accordance with which the amount was coming in neither one nor in two digits but beyond this. Despite this no agreement could be arrived at between NFTE and the management side. The BSNL HQR letter No.-BSNL/7-2/SR/2016 dt-06-07-2016 is proof of that. The NFTE’s stand is vindicated and it needs no further dilation form our side. We will be happy in case employees get one month salary Rs.4500/- as PLI. However, it should be noted that baseless accusations and abuses do harm unity including functional one. NFTE will continue to discharge it’s all responsibilities in the interest of employees. Sermon is not needed form such quarter which hurled abuses and accusations.

  29-04-2016 : Claims for from Truth:- Sequel to strike agreement on 08-09-2000 between NFTE – FNTO with DOT only Govt of India took Cabinet decision to grant Govt pension and Job security to employees absorbed in BSNL. The so called protest of E-3 (Namboodri) etc and leader of BSNLEU was only in air. E-3(N) etc had played no role in framing of Pension Rule 37A. Even they had not participated in the struggle of 6th to 8th September, 2000. The NFTE has never agreed to disinvestment or privitisation. It is BSNLEU wild allegations BSNLEU was opposed to FDI in Telecom Sector. What happened to that. The UPA Govt brought FDI in Telecom during the period CPM was supporting the Govt. NFTE’s main concern is to protect Job and future, Pension of employees. It will continue its efforts talks no tall talks and no about turns akin to BSNLEU.

  27-04-2016 : Allegations baseless and unfounded:- The leaders of BSNLEU are making baseless and unfounded allegations that the NFTE agreed and accepted the formation of BSNL.

The propagandists were anxious and eager to form industrial union and assembled quickly at Vishakhapatnam to form BSNLEU instead of protecting the employees. The “BBNL” (Bharat Broad Band Nigam Limited) has been formed in 2012. Who formed this PSU?. A separate Tower Company has been formed in the BSNL. Who has formed the third PSU i.e. Tower Company?. Govt is the owner of BSNL, BBNL and Tower Company and these have been formed only by Govt. The NFTE’s efforts had been to protect the interest of employees

  19-04-2016 : Designation change:-The issue of change of designation of Cadre viz RM, TM and Sr. TOA was pending for last 8 years. The NFTE promised change in year 2013 during last i.e. 6th verification for change after getting recognized. As a matter of fact the NFTE vide letter No.-TF-53, dt-16-03-2012 sent proposal for change of designation. In this we proposed junior engineer designation for TTA. At that time the then recognized union, BSNLEU, was insisting for associate engineer designation to TTA. It was then widely talked in no circumstance JE designation will be conferred on TTA. NFTE after recognition persued it vigorously and ceaselessly cited example that in Govt Sector as well as in some PSUs Diploma Holders are designated as Junior Engineer. The joint committee accepted, MC approved and it is how awaiting nod of Board. The viewers and readers should think and ponder why designation issue was not settled upto year 2013 and it could be resolved only in year 2015-16. NFTE has played its role in settlement and no reasonable man can deny this.

  16-04-2016 : BSNLEU knows to abuse:- The leader of BSNLEU know well to abuse the leaders of other unions. Late O.P. Gupta, Visionary leader who secured job security and Govt pension was not spared. They were not calling him even as Comrade. Their leaders at the time of second wage revision called NFTE –FNTO leaders as agents of Management and Govt. The second wage revision bought loss to employees (TTAs etc) in salary. Agreement had been on 68.8% instead of 78.2% IDA, HRA loss etc. The employees couldnot get PLI due to hide and seek game of BSNLEU. They launched malicious and baseless propaganda against NFTE specially President by passing decency and decorum. Abuse and disinformation are their culture.
