date for submission of option for absorption in BSNL in

various benefits to those who opt for BSNL/MTNL before 30.9.05 viz. improved pay benefit in the form of
special allowances, which can also be commuted like pension, 5 years weightage for eligibility for pension etc.
DEEMED DEPUTATION OF THE GROUP `A’ OFFICERS:
The Deemed Deputation of Group-A Officers in BSNL is to end w.e.f 01.10.2005
as per the Cabinet Decision taken at the time of formation of BSNL. Though
DoT has decided to receive the options from the Group-A officers for their
absorption up to 26.09.2005, there is strong resistance from the ITS
Association against absorption. BSNL, in consultation with Chairman Telecom
Commission and Cabinet Secretary, was ready to extend certain financial
package for the optees. But this package has not been announced since the
ITS Association declined to sign an agreement for absorption. Now, there
might be a move for extending the deemed deputation period which we are to
vehemently oppose. AIBSNLEA, in its CWC meeting at Bhopal in July 2005,
resolved not to work under the deputationists after 30.09.2005.
In order to preempt any move for extension of deemed
deputation period, all Branch/Circle Secretaries of AIBSNLEA are requested
to send a Savingram to all concerned as indicated in the context of the
Savingram given below. This text may be typed in the Association letter
head and dispatched immediately.
