Hindi translation of "VRS is government's strategy to stop BSNL's revival."

बीएसएनएल के रिवाइवल को रोकने की सरकार की रणनीति है VRS...
यूनियन्स एवं एसोसिएशन्स ऑफ BSNL द्वारा बीएसएनएल की भूमि प्रबंधन नीति का अनुमोदन करने हेतु मांग की जा रही है, जिससे कि BSNL की रिक्त पड़ी भूमि से मुद्रीकरण (मोनेटाइजेशन) के माध्यम से अर्जित राशि कंपनी के विकास और रिवाइवल हेतु उपलब्ध कराई जा सके। किन्तु अब BSNL की रिक्त भूमि के मोनेटाइजेशन से प्राप्त राशि का उपयोग सरकार VRS के लिए धनराशि जुटाने के लिए घेराबंदी कर रही है। यह BSNL के विकास और वित्तीय उन्नयन के लिए आवश्यक फंड्स प्राप्ति से BSNL को वंचित करने की सरकार एक सोची समझी योजना है।

3.4 lakh persons evade income tax payable on capital gains from shares and mutual funds.

It is shocking to know that 3.4 lakh persons have cheated income tax, payable on account of capital gains from shares and mutual funds. As per media reports, 3.4 lakh investors, dealing in shares and mutual funds, have evaded income tax, on account of capital gains. Data shows that in 2018-19 alone, 91,000 individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) dealing in shares and mutual funds, exceeding Rs.20 lakh, did not file Income Tax returns. The value of the sales of these shares and mutual fund units is estimated at Rs.99,000 crores. The Income Tax department is taking stringent actions when salaried employees do not file income tax returns. At the same time, media reports reveal that lakhs of persons dealing with shares and mutual funds escape from paying income tax and they are being allowed to escape scot-free.

Fourth meeting of the Joint Committee on wage revision - Staff Side strongly criticises the negative attitude of the Management Side.

The 4th meeting of the Joint Committee on wage revision of the Non-Executives took place today. Shri H.C. Pant, Chairman of the Joint Committee, presided over the meeting. All the members of the Staff Side were present. Surprisingly, the members of the Management Side started talking in a negative way, right form the beginning of the meeting. Members of the Management Side started telling that the DoT may not accept 15% fitment, and may agree for only 0% fitment or 5% fitment. To this, the entire Staff Side reacted and told that nothing short of 15% fitment would be accepted by them. In the last three meetings, the Staff Side leaders have already emphatically told the Management Side that, the gap between the minimum and maximum of the pay scales of the Non-Executives should be sufficiently long, so as to avoid stagnation to any one of the Non-Executives. However, in today’s meeting, the Management Side members started arguing that the gap between the minimum and the maximum should be kept as short as possible, so that the Management need not unnecessarily spend huge amount towards payment of pension contribution. The entire Staff Side opposed this view. The Staff Side opposed this vehemently and argued that, when the Management is prepared to pay huge amount as pension contribution for the Executives, why should they worry about the amount to be paid only in respect of the Non-Executives. The Staff Side strongly criticised the mindset of the Management Side, and told that they would be compelled to go to the workers and expose the double standards being adopted by the Management Side. Thereafter, Shri H.C. Pant, Chairman of the Joint Committee, intervened and assured that the interests of the Non-Executives would be protected in the wage revision. Further, he directed the GM(SR) to spell-out the proposals of the Management with regards to the new pay scales. The following are the new pay scales proposed in today’s meeting, by the Management Side.

Hindi translation of "VRS is the road map for privatisation of BSNL."

BSNL के निजीकरण का रोडमैप (योजना) है VRS...
VRS बीएसएनएल के वित्तीय संकट के लिए संजीवनी (रामबाण दवा) नही है। VRS को दो बार MTNL में लागू किया जा चूका है। इसके बावजूद MTNL आकंठ संकट में है। VRS, MTNL को संकट से उबारने के लिए कारगर क्यों साबित नही हुआ ? क्या सरकार इसका जवाब दे सकती है ? सरकार की VRS लागू करने के पीछे केवल कर्मचारियों की संख्या कम करने की मंशा है जिससे कि भविष्य में BSNL का निजीकरण करना आकर्षक प्रतीत हो। VRS का क्रियान्वयन और कुछ नही, वरन, BSNL के निजीकरण हेतु रोडमैप है। VRS का समर्थन कर रहे युवा कर्मचारियों को यह समझना चाहिए।
