Based on the initiative taken by BSNLEU, BSNL Corporate Office took action to implement Health Insurance Policy to the willing employees of BSNL. An MoU was signed between BSNL Management and the Dehradun Divisional Office of New India Assurance Company Ltd. This Health Insurance Policy was to be implemented w.e.f. 01st September, 2021. Totally, 17,228 employees have given option to join this scheme. However, the Corporate Office of the New India Assurance Company Ltd. has not given it’s approval for the MoU so far. BSNLEU is vigorously pursuing this issue. CMD BSNL and the Director (HR) are taking up this issue with the Chairman New Indian Assurance Company Ltd. Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, discussed this issue with Shri Arvind Vadnerkar, Director (HR), BSNL. As of now, it appears that, implementation of BSNL Health Insurance Policy is likely to be delayed.
