AIBDPA has been continuously pursuing the issues of VRS retirees, particularly delay in exgratia payment and issuning PPOs. We wrote a letter to Secretary, Department of Telecommunications on 08-06-2020 in which our concern on breach of assurance on payment of exgratia payment was highlighted. The DoT released the fund initially for 31.3% of exgratia payment instead of 50%, as assured. We had in our letter demanded payment of balance of exgratia before 30-06-2020.
But again the government through DoT has released only Rs.3,021 cr which amounts to 22.5% only of the exgratia. That means, 46.2% still to be paid and no assurance on when this wil be paid. This is nothing but betrayal and we strongly protest against this gross injustice meted out to the VRS retirees.
