Hindi translation of "Privatisation of the BPCL should be an eye opener to BSNL employees."

BPCL का निजीकरण BSNL कर्मियों के लिए चेतावनी...

नरेंद्र मोदी सरकार ने भारत पेट्रोलियम कारपोरेशन लिमिटेड (BPCL), जो कि एक बेहद मुनाफे वाला PSU है, के निजीकरण का निर्णय ले लिया है। जाहिर है, उसके निजीकरण की जरूरत नही है और उसके निजीकरण का कोई आधार भी (justification) नही है। 1971 के पूर्व  BPCL एक बहुराष्ट्रीय तेल कंपनी थी। 1971 के भारत पाकिस्तान युद्ध के बाद तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री श्रीमती इंदिरा गांधी द्वारा इस कंपनी का राष्ट्रीयकरण कर दिया गया था, क्योंकि भारत के पाकिस्तान के साथ युद्ध के दौरान इस कंपनी ने भारतीय एयरफोर्स के लड़ाकू जेट्स को ईंधन आपूर्ति से इंकार कर दिया था। यह दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण है कि मोदी सरकार इतिहास को पलट रही है और एक विशालकाय पब्लिक सेक्टर तेल कंपनी को किसी भारतीय या बहुराष्ट्रीय कॉर्पोरेट को सौंपना चाहती है। भारत सरकार का BPCL के निजीकरण का कृत्य राष्ट्र विरोधी होने के अलावा और कुछ नही है। जो सतही तौर पर "राष्ट्रवाद" की बाते करते हैं, उन्हें आत्मावलोकन करना चाहिए और सोचना चाहिए कि किस तरह मोदी सरकार "राष्ट्रीय हितों"  के साथ समझौता कर रही है। मोदी सरकार की पब्लिक सेक्टर की निजीकरण की नीतियों के विरोध में केंद्रीय श्रम संगठन ने 8 जनवरी, 2020 को आम हड़ताल का आव्हान किया है। इस आम हड़ताल में BSNLEU ने भी शामिल होने का निर्णय लिया है। हम सभी BSNL कर्मियों से अनुरोध करते हैं कि वें समग्र रूप से इस हड़ताल में शामिल हों। यदि हम अभी भी एक मूक दर्शक बने रहेंगे तो वह दिन दूर नही जब BSNL भी अम्बानी या अडानी को सौंप दिया जाएगा।

The GDP growth of India tumbles further - at 4.5%, it is the lowest in the 6 ½ years.

As India is gripped in an economic crisis, it’s GDP continues to tumble. In the July-September quarter, the GDP growth has fallen to 4.5%. This is the lowest GDP growth since March, 2013, i.e., during the past 6 ½ years. It may be noted that the GDP growth during the previous quarter, i.e., during April to June 2019, remained at 5%. It is for sure that the GDP growth may plunge to 4% in the next quarter. It is a matter of serious concern that India, which was the fastest growing economy a few years ago, is in shatters now. Rightly, it is being said by some political critics that, India’s economy is in an ICU today.

भारत की जीडीपी वृद्धि दर में और गिरावट-  4.5% के साथ, विगत 6.5 वर्षों में अपने न्यूनतम पर...

भारत आर्थिक संकट की गिरफ्त में होने से इसकी जीडीपी में गिरावट जारी है। जुलाई-सितंबर की तिमाही में जीडीपी वृद्धि दर गिर कर 4.5% रह गई है। मार्च, 2013 के बाद, यानी विगत 6.5 वर्षों में, जीडीपी की यह वृद्धि दर न्यूनतम है। ज्ञातव्य है कि विगत तिमाही, यानी अप्रैल से जून 2019 के बीच जीडीपी वृद्धि दर 5% थी। यह सुनिश्चित है कि अगली तिमाही में जीडीपी की वृद्धि दर गिर कर 4% तक आ सकती है। यह बेहद चिंताजनक है कि भारत, जो कि कुछ वर्षों पूर्व तेजी से विकसित होती अर्थव्यवस्था था, अब खस्ताहाल स्थिति में है। किसी राजनीतिक आलोचक ने सही ही कहा है कि, आज भारत की अर्थव्यवस्था ICU में है।

Retirement age will not be reduced - Hon'ble Ministers inform Parliament - all the employees who opted for VRS due to this fear, can now withdraw their option.

Reduction of the retirement age from 60 to 58 years, is one of the threatenings that has made a large number of BSNL employees to opt for VRS. Rumour mongers did over time to spread this mischievous rumour, to force a large number of employees to opt for VRS.


But, now the State Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, Dr. Jitendra Singh, has declared in the Parliament on 27-11-2019, that the Government has no proposal to reduce the retirement age of it’s employees, from 60 to 58 years. This reply of the Minister, given in the Parliament, has nailed down a very big lie, spread by mischievous elements.


BSNLEU has already made it known that the BSNL Management, vide it's letter no. BSNL /4/SR/2000 dated 2nd January, 2001 has given the assurance that, "Age of superannuation for all the Non-Board level employees in BSNL will be regulated in accordance with Government rules."

Already, Shri Anurag Singh Thakur, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance has informed the Parliament on 25-11-2019 that, the government has no proposal to fix the retirement age of government employees as 60 year or 33 years of service, whichever is earlier.


Hence, all the employees who have opted for VRS, due to the fear, that retirement age will be reduced, can now withdraw their option.

*रिटायरमेंट की आयु कम नही की जाएगी- माननीय मंत्रियों ने पार्लियामेंट को सूचित किया - इस भय से जिन कर्मचारियों ने VRS ऑप्ट किया था, वें अपना ऑप्शन वापिस ले सकते हैं...*

रिटायरमेंट की आयु 60 से घटा कर 58 वर्ष करना, एक ऐसी धमकी रही है, जिसकी वजह से बड़ी संख्या में कर्मचारियों ने VRS ऑप्ट किया। 

 

अफवाह फैलाने वालों ने अतिरिक्त प्रयास कर इस षड्यंत्रपूर्ण अफवाह को प्रसारित किया, जिससे कि बड़ी संख्या में कर्मचारियों पर VRS ऑप्ट करने का दबाव बन सके।

 

किन्तु, अब प्रधानमंत्री कार्यालय में राज्य मंत्री डॉ जितेंद्र सिंह ने 27.11.2019 को पार्लियामेंट में घोषित कर दिया है  कि सरकार के पास अपने कर्मचारियों की रिटायरमेंट आयु 60 से 58 वर्ष करने का कोई प्रस्ताव नही है। मंत्री महोदय द्वारा पार्लियामेंट में दिए गए इस जवाब से षड्यंत्रकारी तत्वों द्वारा परोसे जा रहे एक बड़े झूठ का पटाक्षेप हो गया है।

 

BSNLEU द्वारा पूर्व में सभी के संज्ञान में यह लाया जा चुका है कि, BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा उनके पत्र क्रमांक BSNL/4/SR/2000 दिनांक 02 जनवरी, 2001 द्वारा यह आश्वासन दिया गया था कि  BSNL के सभी नॉन बोर्ड लेवल के कर्मचारियों की सुपरएन्युएशन उम्र सरकार के नियमों के अनुसार नियंत्रित (regulate) की जाएगी।

 

श्री अनुराग सिंह ठाकुर, वित्त मंत्रालय में राज्य मंत्री 25.11.2019 को पार्लियामेंट में यह जानकारी दे ही चुके हैं कि सरकार के पास सरकारी कर्मचारियों की सेवानिवृत्ति आयु 60 वर्ष या 33 वर्ष की सेवा, जो भी पहले हो, निर्धारित करने का कोई प्रस्ताव नही है।

 

अतः, सभी कर्मचारी जिन्होंने रिटायरमेंट की आयु कम किए जाने के भय से VRS ऑप्ट किया था, अब आसानी से अपना ऑप्शन वापिस ले सकते हैं।

Director (HR) BSNL holds discussions on the road map for revival of BSNL.

We have come to know that the Director (HR) has conducted a meeting with certain organisations yesterday, on the road-map for the revival of BSNL. It is extremely strange to note that the road-map for revival of BSNL was discussed without any official intimation to BSNLEU, which is the Main Recognised Representative Union in BSNL. GS, BSNLEU, has communicated his protest to the Director (HR), through Whatsapp. He has also informed that, the Management should not involve in “Divide & Rule Policy”. In times, we have seen that the BSNL Management taking extra ordinary interest in communicating with certain organisations. Thus, we are at loss to understand, how the Management could conduct such a crucial meeting without any official intimation to the Main Recognised Representative Union.

Hunger strike organised effectively throughout the country, despite all out efforts taken by BSNL Management to crush it.

As per reports received from the circles the one day hunger strike, called on by BSNLEU, FNTO, BSNL MS, BSNL ATM and BSNL OA, has been organised very successfully throughout the country. This is despite the fact that the BSNL Management took all out efforts to crush the hunger strike. At New Delhi, a very good hunger strike was organised at the Eastern Court. Leaders of BSNLEU, FNTO, BSNL MS, BSNL ATM and BSNL OA took part in the hunger strike, together with a good number of comrades. BSNLEU heartily thanks everyone, for making this hunger strike a success. If the BSNL Management does not take constructive steps to settle the demands, more intensive movement will become inevitable.
