Hindi translation of "Corporate Office instruction for deducting 20% Income Tax on the total salary – Circle secretaries/ CHQ office bearers to kindly note please."

कुल वेतन पर 20% आयकर काटने का कॉर्पोरेट कार्यालय का निर्देश – सर्किल सचिव/सीएचक्यू पदाधिकारी कृपया ध्यान दें। 

दिनांक 21-06-2024 को सीएचक्यू सभी सर्किल सचिवों एवं सीएचक्यू पदाधिकारियों के संज्ञान में लाया है कि कॉर्पोरेट कार्यालय ने उन कर्मचारियों के संबंध में, जिन्होंने अपना पैन कार्ड आधार से लिंक नहीं कराया है, कुल वेतन का 20% आयकर काटने (मानक कटौती एवं अन्य छूट को छोड़कर) के लिए पत्र जारी किया है। यदि कॉर्पोरेट कार्यालय का यह पत्र लागू होता है तो जिन कर्मचारियों ने अपना पैन कार्ड आधार से लिंक नहीं कराया है, उनके वेतन से लाखों रुपए कट जाएंगे। यह कर्मचारियों के लिए बहुत बड़ा नुकसान होगा। इस मामले पर BSNLEU के सीएचक्यू ने निदेशक (वित्त) को पहले ही पत्र लिख दिया है। सीएचक्यू ने आज प्रिंसिपल जनरल मैनेजर (कॉर्पोरेट अकाउंट्स) के साथ इस मामले पर चर्चा भी की है। इस संबंध में, सीएचक्यू ने सर्किल सचिवों और सीएचक्यू पदाधिकारियों को आपातकालीन आधार पर कार्रवाई करने के लिए सूचित किया है। सीएचक्यू हमारे साथियों से अनुरोध करता है कि वे उन सभी कर्मचारियों के नाम तुरंत सूचीबद्ध करें जिन्होंने अपने पैन कार्ड को अपने आधार से लिंक नहीं किया है। उन कर्मचारियों को उनके पैन कार्ड को उनके आधार से लिंक करने में मदद करने के लिए उचित सहायता दी जानी चाहिए। यह कार्य एक सप्ताह के भीतर पूरा किया जाना चाहिए।

Holding of the National Council Meeting – Management's reluctance to hold meetings timely.

It is unfortunate that the BSNL Management is not serious about holding the National Council meeting, the highest forum for negotiating staff issues between the Staff Side and the Management. The last National Council meeting was held on 07.08.2023. Com. Animesh Mitra, President, Com. John Verghese, Acting General Secretary, and Com. C.K. Gundanna, AGS, met with Ms. Anita Johri, CGM (SR), BSNL CO, and requested that the National Council meeting be held at the earliest. They pointed out that 10 months have passed without a notification for the next meeting. They urged the Management to notify the date without further delay so the Staff Side can submit the agenda. The CGM (SR) responded that she would discuss the matter with the Director (HR) and inform the Staff Side accordingly.

Magnificent win for India in T20 World Cup..

It was in the year 2007, when India won the last T20 World Cup. After 17 years, the Indian team played brilliantly at Barbados in West Indies last Saturday and has won the T20 World Cup. The overall performance of the Indian players is praise worthy. Especially, Virat Kohli‘s 76 runs in 56 balls, Axar Patel‘s 47 runs in 37 balls, a brilliant catch by Suryakumar Yadav in the last over and of course, the breath-taking last over bowling by Hardik Pandya, have ensured victory for team India. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the entire Indian players for this magnificent victory.

टी20 विश्व कप में भारत की शानदार जीत।

साल 2007 में भारत ने आखिरी बार टी20 विश्व कप जीता था। 17 साल बाद भारतीय टीम ने पिछले शनिवार को वेस्टइंडीज के बारबाडोस में शानदार प्रदर्शन किया और टी20 विश्व कप अपने नाम कर लिया। भारतीय खिलाड़ियों का कुल मिलाकर प्रदर्शन काबिले तारीफ है। खास तौर पर विराट कोहली के 56 गेंदों में 76 रन, अक्षर पटेल के 37 गेंदों में 47 रन, आखिरी ओवर में सूर्यकुमार यादव का शानदार कैच और बेशक हार्दिक पांड्या की आखिरी ओवर में शानदार गेंदबाजी ने टीम इंडिया की जीत सुनिश्चित कर दी। BSNLEU इस शानदार जीत के लिए सभी भारतीय खिलाड़ियों को हार्दिक बधाई देता है।

Deadlock in the renewal of Group Health Insurance Scheme..

Employees are aware that, due to the initiative taken by BSNLEU, a Voluntary Group Health Insurance scheme has been implemented in BSNL. In this connection, the MoU signed between BSNL Management and Oriental Insurance Company last year has expired on 31–05–2024. Many rounds of meetings have been held between BSNL Management, Oriental Insurance Company, and the Recognised Unions and Associations, for the renewal of the MoU. So far, no agreement could be reached. This is because, Oriental Insurance Company has steeply increased the premium amounts. For example, for a policy of Rs.5 lakh, for self, spouse, and three children, the premium amount was Rs.24,222 last year.  However, Oriental Insurance Company has increased this amount to Rs.34,810 for the coming year. All the Recognised Unions and Associations did not accept such a high premium amount. At the same time, no other insurance company, either in public sector or in private sector, is prepared to offer lesser premium amount. From 01-06-2024 onwards, the employees are left with no Group Health Insurance Scheme.  Under these circumstances, the Corporate Office has issued letter to the recognised unions and associations, requesting them to inform within a week, whether any other insurance company is prepared to offer lesser premium amount, then the Oriental Insurance Company’s premium amount. The Corporate Office letter is enclosed for the information of our comrades.

समूह स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना के नवीनीकरण में गतिरोध।

कर्मचारियों को ज्ञात है कि BSNLEU की पहल पर बीएसएनएल में स्वैच्छिक समूह स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना लागू की गई है। इस संबंध में बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन और ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी के बीच पिछले वर्ष हस्ताक्षरित एमओयू की अवधि 31-05-2024 को समाप्त हो गई है। एमओयू के नवीनीकरण के लिए बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन, ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी और मान्यता प्राप्त यूनियनों और एसोसिएशनों के बीच कई दौर की बैठकें हो चुकी हैं। अभी तक कोई सहमति नहीं बन पाई है। ऐसा इसलिए है, क्योंकि ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी ने प्रीमियम राशि में भारी वृद्धि कर दी है। उदाहरण के लिए, स्वयं, जीवनसाथी और तीन बच्चों के लिए 5 लाख रुपये की पॉलिसी के लिए पिछले वर्ष प्रीमियम राशि 24,222 रुपये थी। अब ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी ने आगामी वर्ष के लिए इस राशि को बढ़ाकर 34,810 रुपये कर दिया है। सभी मान्यता प्राप्त यूनियनों और एसोसिएशनों ने इतनी अधिक प्रीमियम राशि स्वीकार नहीं की। वहीं, कोई भी अन्य बीमा कंपनी, चाहे वह सार्वजनिक क्षेत्र की हो या निजी क्षेत्र की, कम प्रीमियम राशि देने को तैयार नहीं है। 01-06-2024 के बाद से कर्मचारियों के पास कोई समूह स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना नहीं बची है। इन परिस्थितियों में, कॉर्पोरेट कार्यालय ने मान्यता प्राप्त यूनियनों और एसोसिएशनों को पत्र जारी कर अनुरोध किया है कि वे एक सप्ताह के भीतर बताएं कि क्या कोई अन्य बीमा कंपनी ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी की प्रीमियम राशि से कम प्रीमियम राशि देने को तैयार है। कॉर्पोरेट कार्यालय का पत्र संलग्न है।

BSNLEU has written a letter to the new Hon'ble Minister of Communications, Shri Jyotiraditya Scindia ji today, on the Wage Revision issue. In the letter, BSNLEU has made a fervent appeal to the Hon'ble Minister to settle the wage revision issue without delay. BSNLEU has explained how thousands of employees are suffering enormously, due to the stagnation issue. The Union has also pointed out that, the top managers of the Company, who have come on deputation from the DoT, are enjoying pay revision and revision of allowances, whereas the employees in the lower rung are suffering due to non-settlement of wage revision. Further, BSNLEU has also pointed out in the letter that, the DoT has already given direction to the CMD BSNL in 2018 to sign the wage revision agreement with the recognised trade unions, but the same has not happened due to the negative attitude of the BSNL management.

BSNLEU ने आज नये संचार मंत्री श्री ज्योतिरादित्य सिंधिया जी को वेतन संशोधन मुद्दे पर पत्र लिखा है। पत्र में BSNLEU ने माननीय मंत्री जी से वेतन संशोधन मुद्दे को अविलंब निपटाने की जोरदार अपील की है। BSNLEU ने बताया है कि किस तरह से स्थगन मुद्दे के कारण हजारों कर्मचारियों को भारी परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ रहा है। यूनियन ने यह भी बताया है कि दूरसंचार विभाग से प्रतिनियुक्ति पर आये कंपनी के शीर्ष प्रबंधक वेतन संशोधन और भत्तों के संशोधन का आनंद ले रहे हैं, जबकि निचले स्तर के कर्मचारी वेतन संशोधन का निपटारा न होने के कारण परेशानी झेल रहे हैं। इसके अलावा, BSNLEU ने पत्र में यह भी बताया है कि दूरसंचार विभाग ने वर्ष 2018 में सीएमडी बीएसएनएल को मान्यता प्राप्त ट्रेड यूनियनों के साथ वेतन संशोधन समझौते पर हस्ताक्षर करने के निर्देश दिए थे, लेकिन बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन के नकारात्मक रवैये के कारण ऐसा नहीं हो पाया है।

  • Privatisation of the Public Sector Undertakings should be stopped.

Employees who have failed to link their PAN card with Aadhaar – Corporate Office instruction to deduct 20% Income Tax on the total salary – BSNLEU writes to the Director (Finance) demanding to keep the order under abeyance and provide one more opportunity for linking PAN card with Aadhaar..

The Corporate Office has issued letter to the circles for the deduction of Income Tax at 20% of the total salary (ignoring the standard deduction and other rebates), in respect of the employees who have not linked their PAN card with their Aadhaar. This will create a big financial strain on the employees who have failed to link their PAN card with their Aadhaar. In this connection, BSNLEU has written a letter to the Director (Finance) today. BSNLEU has stated that, the Management has failed to create sufficient awareness among the employees that, PAN card should be compulsorily linked with Aadhaar. Hence, BSNLEU has requested the Management to keep the Corporate Office instruction for deduction of 20% Income Tax on the total salary, under abeyance. Further, BSNLEU has also requested the Management to provide one more opportunity for the employees for linking their PAN card with Aadhaar.
