The wages of the contract workers are not paid by BSNL for the past 10 months. Despite BSNLEU and BSNLCCWF organising struggles, the issue remains unsettled. In the mean time, many contract workers have committed suicide because of the financial strain caused due to the non-payment of wages. It is extremely disturbing to note that, one more contract worker has committed suicide in Kerala circle yesterday. Com. Ramakrishnan, who was also a physically challenged person, committed suicide inside MDF room at Nilambur Exchange in Malappuram district. BSNLEU expresses it’s heartfelt condolences to the family members of Com.Ramakrishnan.

Indian corporates now demand the privatisation of Public Sector Banks.

The nation is still not able to understand how the Punjab National Bank is looted by the Indian corporates, to the tune of Rs.11,500 crores. The loot has been done in a very systematic manner. The looters have comfortably escaped out of India. More shockingly, Nirav Modi, the brain behind this great looting has even taken a group photo with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at Davos. After having done all these, now the Indian corporates have demanded that the Public Sector banks should be privatised. Adi Godrej, of the Godrej group, has stated that private banks are better managed and big scams do not take place there. Hence, Public Sector banks should be privatised.  The tragedy is that, the government facilitates looting of Public Sector banks, by the corporates. After doing this, the same corporates demand that the Public Sector banks should be privatised, since they are inefficient. The claim of Adi Goderj is totally wrong. The world has not forgotten that the great world economic crisis that started in 2008, was created only by the bankruptcy of the great multinational banks of America, belonging to the private sector.

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.
