BSNL plans to trim landline operations, cut jobs

State-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) plans to sharply scale down the manpower strength of its beleaguered landline business, which accounts for nearly 65% of its 2.77 lakh-strong workforce, in one of the boldest moves to transform the loss-making telco into a nimble, profit-making organisation.

"Poor revenues coupled with a steep reduction in the number of landline connections over the past three years from some 34 million to under 25 million has made a sizeable number of positions and functions in the consumer fixed access (CFA) division redundant. A review of the manpower requirement is underway, but we are yet to take a call on which positions to retain and which to abolish," a top company executive with direct knowledge of the development told ET.

At present, BSNL is doing an internal assessment of whether its loss-making landline business justifies the existence of innumerable phone mechanics,telecom technical assistants, regular mazdoors and junior telecom officers who collectively number more than a whopping 1.5 lakh on its rolls.

The number of staff functions in the CFA business is directly linked to the number of active landlines. But the growing instances of people surrendering their landlines has induced BSNL's senior management to consider outsourcing a host of activities, including operations & maintenance.

AICPIN for the month of September, 2011

All-India Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers on Base 2001=100 for the month of September, 2011.

We all know, AICPIN (All-India Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers on Base 2001=100) is the main source to calculate Dearness allowance for Central Government employees and Pensioners. Ministry of Labour Bureau will release the AICPIN for the month of September in one or two days. The prices of 24 essential commodities from 78 selected cities in over all India has been taken into account for calculating the price index. The food prices higher compared to last month, hence the indices will increase substantially.

If the index number goes high, more than 196, the additional dearness allowance could be increased by 4 per cent. Now the existing rate is 58%.

When a thief forced you to take money from the ATM, do not argue or resist, you might not know what he or she might do to you. What you should do is to punch your PIN in the reverse...

Eg: If your PIN is 1234, you punch 4321.

The moment you punch in the reverse, the money will come out, but will be stuck into the machine half way out and it will alert the police without the notice of the thief.

Every ATM has it; It is specially made to signify danger and help. Not everyone is aware of this

Clarification on Medical Reimbursement of Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS).

The Department of Health and Family Welfare has published various orders regarding the empanelled hospitals and the revision of package rates on its website regularly. Still there is lot of problems with some of the empanelled hospitals while getting treatment. They did not bother about the package rates and they used some other medical words in discharge summary of the particular treatments.
Hence the amount of reimbursement is reduced or the total claim is ignored. The reimbursement will be made on the basis of the medical bills and reports as in the discharge summary. The pertinent package rates has been searched by the competent authority to sanction his claim of medical treatment according to given reports by the employee.

Department of Health and Family Welfare issued a detailed clarification on 30.09.2011, “if CGHS rate is not available for any procedure / investigation / category (say super-specialty) in any CGHS covered city, the CGHS rate notified for such procedure / investigation / category for the nearest CGHS city or the rate notified under CGHS, Delhi, whichever is lower shall be applicable as CGHS rate for such procedure / investigation / category for that city”.

Concerning the posting at the same place of husband and wife who are working in Government service, the transfer issues have been raised in Parliament on several occasions. In 1980s these demands began to show its seriousness, because the percentage of women employees were increased in joining the Government services. The Central Government also observed this issue from various forums, a circular had been issued by the Department of Social Welfare in Feb 1976 to all Head of Departments to give serious consideration to the requests of posting of husband and wife at the same station. In order to that order, lot of women employees started to send their request to transfer at the place where their husbands are posted.
The Central Government gave its utmost importance to this issue and as far as possible and within the constraints of adminstrative feasibility, the husband and wife should be posted at the same station to enable them to lead a normal family life and to ensure the education and welfare of thier children. The Department of Personnel and Training issued an OM on 3.4.86, in accordance with the guidelines and instructions in the order given by the Government, all cadre controlling authorities should consider such requests with the utmost sympathy.
The Department of Personnel and Training issued various office memorandums regarding this matter from time to time. The motive of the Government on the petitioners, said in the orders repeatedly, to give utmost importance attached to the enhancement of women’s status in all walks of life and to enable them to lead a normal family life as also to ensure the education and welfare of the children.

Till recently, the persmin has issued total of six orders pertaining the above subject on its website. After implementation of the 6th CPC, the last order has been issued on 30.09.2009. The order said that “On the basis of the 6th CPC reprot, Government servants have already been allowed the facility of Child Care Leave which is admissible till the children attain 18 years of age”. The consolidated guidelines concerened this subject has been provided in the OM dated 12.06.1997. The consolidated guidelines has been amended and published in the last order after implementation of 6th CPC.
In the main guidelines, ”The husband & wife, if working in the same Department and if the required level of post is available, should invariably be posted together in order to enable them to lead a normal family life and look after the welfare of their children especially till the children attain 18 years of age. This will not apply on appointment under the central Staffing Scheme. Where only wife is a Govt. servant, the above concessions would be applicable to the Govt. servant. Complaints are sometimes received that even if posts are available in the station of posting of the spouse, the administrative authorities do not accommodate the employees citing administrative reasons. In all such cases, the cadre controlling authority should strive to post the employee at the station of the spouse and in case of inability to do so, specific reasons, therefor, may be communicated to the employee”.

Aligning returns on Small Savings Schems with market interest rates - Decision likely by March 2011
NEW DELHI: With declining small savings collection, the Finance Ministry is likely to decide by the end of this fiscal on aligning returns on such schemes with market interest rates, as recommended by a government panel.
"We are looking into the recommendations of the
Shyamala Gopinath Committee and a decision will be taken by March end," said a senior Finance Ministry official.
Small savings schemes run by post-office, which are a major source of government's borrowings, are loosing sheen as interest rates offered on bank deposits are more attractive. Rates offered by banks are on rise ever since the RBI has been increasing its key policy rates.
The Gopinath Committee has suggested various measures to make the schemes popular, including aligning the interest rates to market and bringing interest rate on post-office deposits up to par with a saving bank account.
"Benchmarking of interest rates on small saving schemes deposits to rates of Government securities (G-secs) is being actively looked into," the official added.
He said the thinking in the government was to have a floating rate of interest on such savings. "We are looking at combining some of the schemes into one and the rates will be revised every year," he said.
The returns on small savings, like post office time deposit schemes and Monthly Income Scheme, vary between 6.25- 8 per cent. While savings banks accounts fetch a interest rate of 4 per cent calculated on daily basis, a Post office savings account gives an interest rate of 3.5 per cent annually.
Aligning these rates to market rates or Government securities will take the returns to over 8 per cent.
The government had to increase its market borrowing programme to make up for the shortfall in collections from the
National Small Saving Fund (NSSF).
The Centre had initially estimated that NSSF would yield around Rs 24,000 crore, but there was net outflow of Rs 35,000 crore from the corpus during April-September.
Reforms in the small savings schemes is long due as the government has not acted on similar recommendations of Y
V Reddy Committee report submitted in 2001.
Besides other recommendations, the Gopinath Committee had suggested that interest rate for one-year small deposit scheme should go up to 6.8 per cent from 6.25 per cent and introduction of 10-year National Saving Certificate scheme.
The official also said the issue regarding taxing returns on the small savings schemes, would be considered by the government while firming up the Direct Taxes Code (DTC), which seeks to replace the Income Tax Act, 1961.

CIRCULAR NO. 20 Dated 20th October,2011


All affiliates and through them to the respective
Circle/State/District/Division/Branch/Unit leaders;
The State/District Committees of Confederation;

Dear Comrades,

Movement against PFRDA Bill;

We send herewith copy of the letter from the Convenor of the Steering Committee, which of course is self explanatory. The Steering Committee as you know came into existence as per the decision taken at the National Convention held at New Delhi to launch programmes of action against the proposed PRFDA Bill. In order to establish mass contact with the public at large to elicit their support for the eventual struggles ahead, the convention had decided to organise a mass signature campaign. The campaign was to be unleashed in all States after organising State Convention; March to the Governor's office etc. The draft for the signature campaign had also been circulated to be got printed by the respective affiliates/state Committees. The signature campaign was meant to elicit the support of the people for our demand that the Government scraps the bill which has been presented to the Parliament for deliberation and adoption. We hope that the petition on which signatures are to be obtained might have been got printed and circulated amongst mass of the employees. We request you to monitor the progress in this regard as we have decided to obtain at least 10 million signatures in the petition to be submitted to the Honourable Speaker on 25th November, 2011. Needles it is to emphasise that without obtaining the support of the people the struggle against the bill might be difficult to succeed.

The programme slated for 25th November is to organise a massive procession and rally before the Parliament and submit the petition with 10 million signatures to the Honourable Speaker, Lok Sabha. The demonstration must be massive, massive and magnificient enough to receive the requisite attention of the media and the public as also to elicit the attention of the Honourable members of the Parliament. We must take efforts to bring to the kind notice of the honourable members of Parliament of the need to compel the Government to withdraw the ill advised Bill or the same is voted out. To ensure that, a powerful and strong movement has to be brought about outside the Parliament. We must bring to the notice of our members the fact that once the bill is made into law by the Parliament, it would open the gates for sever attack on the present defined benefit pension scheme. The Govt. Will be armed with the powers to tinker with the existing pension affecting adversely the entitlement of pension of the serving employees and Pensioners. Our members who are recruited after. 1.1.2004 have already been excluded from the pension benefit by the Government through an executive fiat. It is our bounden duty to fight for them and ensure that they are covered by the defined benefit pension scheme.

The signature campaign and the March to Parliament, if organised with dedication will raise the public opinion against the bill and will pave the way for it annulment. We appeal to you to do everything possible to make the programme of 25th November, 2011 a grand success and ensure that the old age security in the form of pension of Govt. Employees is not allowed to be snatched away to benefit the rich corporate houses and stock market manipulators. The Steering Committee has decided to organise a two hour demonstration at all work-spots on the date on which the Parliament takes the bill for consideration. We expect the bill to come up for deliberation in the ensuing winter session of the Parliament.

With greetings and with the fervent belief that you will intensify the mobilisation for making the signature campaign and march to Parliament programme slated for 25th November, 2011 greatly successful by the participation of the largest number of Central Govt. Employees.

Yours fraternally,
Secretary General.

Paving way for over 1.5 lakh post offices to offer banking and insurance services, especially in the hinterland, the government will soon make amendments to 'The Indian Post Office Act, 1898'
"The draft amendment bill to make necessary changes in 'The Indian Post Office Act, 1898' has been circulated by the Department of Post for enabling post offices to enter banking and insurance sector," a source privy to the development said.

He further said, "The Planning Commission is vetting the proposal to convert post offices across the nation into full fledged banks and provide insurance service." Besides mail service, post offices in the country have broadly confined their business to offer financial services like savings bank, postal life insurance, pension payments and money transfer services.

The Department of Posts (DoP), which has the largest reach in the country, has diversified in recent times with providing facilities like rail reservation and telephone recharge coupons, but this move will substantially improve its basket of services.

The government, according to the source, wants to completely give a new dimension to the way post offices do business in the country and this Bill is a step towards that goal.With this initiative, the Department of Post (DoP) wants to tap the vast rural market with modern banking facilities through post offices.

"We want to commercialise the department. We will seek a licence from the RBI to convert all our post offices into banks," Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal had recently said.The lack of modern banking facilities in rural areas and dependence of villagers on informal sector for their credit requirements have prompted the government to work on financial inclusion by way of setting up 'postal banks'.

"The State Bank of India can't build branches all over India, but there are post offices across India. The branches are already there, so infrastructure expenditure is not required. So you can actually give banking facilities at relatively lower costs, which would be extremely beneficial to people," he had said.

This will also pave the way for the DoP to offer ATM services and debit cards to its customers.
