OBSERVE NATIONAL PENSIONERS DAY ON 17-12-2021.

It was on 17th December,1982,the constitution Bench of the Supreme Court headed by the then Chief Justice Y V  Chandrachud delivered the historic judgment in the case filed by Shri.D.S.Nakera. The judgment being called as the Magna Carta of the pensioners declared in unequivocal terms that pension is not a bounty but a right of the pensioners and pensioners cannot be discriminated on the basis of date of retirement.

It is also a fact that the pensioners in the country started organising themselves after this important judgment and fought against many injustices and won many a battles. But the government continues the attacks on the genuine rights of the pensioners and the PFRDA Act is the  real challenge to the entire pension community. Attempts are also being reported to curtail the pension and to hand over the the pension fund to the private entities.

As far as BSNL and DoT pensioners are concerned many of the just demands, including pension revision, are still to be settled due to the negative stand of the government. So let us affirm to continue our fight against all injustices being meted out to the pensioners and the onslaught against the people.

Let us also remember the great man, D S Nakera for his heroic and relentless fight and observe the National Pensioners Day in a befitting manner.

Posted by VAN NAMBOODIRI

In a reply to a Parliament Question, Minister of State for Communications, Shri Devu Singh Chsuhan has stated that the assets of BSNL &MTNL are worth Rs. 1,33,952 crore and Rs. 3,556 crore respctively as on 30.09.2021. Net block of property, plant and equipment in respect of these companies are of Rs. 89,878 crore and Rs. 3252 crore respectively as on 31.03.2021.

These valuations are compltely undervalued and without correctly assessing the valuation. BSNL is having maximum land assets through out the country, including in central places in all cities and towns only next to Railways. In addition there are 7 Telecom Factories, 2 major Training Centres, about 30 minor traing centres having thousnds of acres of land. There are many heritage buildings, the value of which may be beyond description. ( Photoes of only CTO buildings at Mumbai and Kolkata as also BSNL HQ only are given here).

These most undervalued statistics are given only to justify their plan to sell the assets to private corporates, not only below market price, but also far below the average price which are shown in other land sale registrations.

The govt conspiracy should be exposed and defeated.
