Number of people affected by COVID-19 in India reaches one crore.

India has got the dubious distinction of being the second most affected country by COVID-19, only next to the United States. Despite the tall claims made by the Modi government, it is a fact that the handling of the pandemic by the government is inept. When the pandemic was fast gripping the entire world, the Modi government mobilised lakhs of people at Ahmedabad on 24th February, 2020, in honour of Donald Trump. Similarly, the unprecedented lock-down was imposed in the whole country by the Modi government, by giving only a 3 hour notice. This brought untold miseries to the 12 crore migrant workers in the country. On the top of everything, even this pandemic was used by the RSS parivar to spread communal hearted. They unleashed a venomous propaganda that the people belonging to a particular religion is responsible for the spread of COVID-19. However, it gives relief that the situation is improving in most parts of the country. At this movement, BSNLEU salutes the doctors, nurses, health workers and all the frontline workers, who have immensely contributed in safeguarding mankind from this unprecedented human disaster. BSNLEU also salutes and pays it’s respectful homage to all those frontline workers who have laid down their lives in this battle.

Proposals of LIC on Group Term Insurance - Views of the Karnataka circle union is worth considering.

CHQ of BSNLEU had called for the views of the CEC members, on the GTI proposals given by LIC. Karnataka circle union of BSNLEU has immediately responded. It's views are worth considering and are reproduced hereunder for our comrades to go through.

 

Respected Com. P. Abhimanyu, G.S., CHQ. I first of all want to congratulate you & CHQ for taking up this issue continuously with the management as a result non-executives will now be extended with GTI scheme. This scheme is very good. At this situation of pandemic and many more unanticipated threat to life it is must that one should have this policy. This will be helpful for family of employees in case of any accidental death in addition to the retirement benefit (if eligible). When the premium is noted it is affordable of course for the age group above 50 up to 59 seems to be high (around Rs.1,525/- monthly including GST 18%), but affordable when risk factor is concerned. For employees of the age group of 18 to 50 is also well within reach (Rs. 360/- monthly). It really helps a lot for DRs. Few clarifications are requested in order to communicate to the employees when enquired. 

 

1.Will the premium be monthly or yearly. 

2. In the present situation where the premium deducted from salary is not being remitted regularly what happens when in case of claim. Will it lead to in eligibility criteria.

3. Will employee will be allowed to opt for annual premium payment.

4. Will each Employee will get any policy or confirming letter from LIC or BSNL Company.

5. Any rebate for Employees paying annual premium.

 

I think all the circle secretary can hold one special seminar in this regard and help employees to understand the value of hard earned GTI scheme facility. 

Regards.

SUDHARSHAN. H.V

CS, KRK.

Service has gone to the dogs – Management does not bother to talk – circle wide hunger strike in Tamil Nadu circle.

After implementation of VRS, quality of services has seriously deteriorated. Massive retrenchment of the contract workers and mindless outsourcing of works have aggravated the problem. After a series of struggles,  assurances were given by the CGM, Tamil Nadu circle on 5th November, 2020. But, all the assurances have been thrown to the winds and the CGM does not bother to meet the unions thereafter. Left with no other option, BSNLEU and TNTCWU have started agitational programmes. Accordingly, one day hunger strike is successfully organised in all the District Head Quarters today. The CHQ heartily congratulates the Tamil Nadu circle comrades.
