The representatives of the AUAB once again met Shri Anshu Prakash, Additional Secretary, Telecom, yesterday. They expressed their disappointment and agony over the non-implementation of the assurances given by the Hon’ble MoS(C) on 3rd Pay Revision, allotment of 4G spectrum, payment of pension contribution of actual basic pay and pension revision. They pointed out how hurdles and road-blocks are being created by the DoT, in the settlement of 3rd Pay Revision and other demands of the employees, as well as in the issues related to the financial revival of BSNL. They expressed their serious disappointment that the DoT has still not sent the Cabinet Note, for getting relaxation from the Affordability Clause of 3rd PRC, on the issue of pay revision of the employees. On the important issue of Pay Revision, the AS(T) avoided stating anything. However, on the issue of allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, he stated that it came up for discussion in the Digital Commission meeting held on 05.02.2019, and that the Commission has decided to refer the matter to the TRAI.
