Both the 78.2% IDA fixation, as well as the NE 12 pay scale, have been approved in the Board of Directors meeting, that took place today(28.08.2012). The 78.2% IDA fixation issue will now go for the approval of the DOT, which we will try to get as early as possible.
CHQ congratulates the entire Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL, whose unwavering preparedness to go on the indefinite strike clinched the 78.2% IDA fixation settlement. We also sincerely thank all the Directors of the BSNL Board, especially, shri R.K.Upadhyay, CMD, shri K.C.G.K.Pillai, Director (Finance) and shri A.N.Rai, Director (HR), for this approval by the Board.
Undoubtedly, the 78.2% IDA fixation is a very big achievement. Such an achievement cannot even be dreamed of in any other company, whether in Public Sector or in Private Sector, under such a deteriorating financial condition.
