Dear Comrades!
ORGANIZE EFFECTIVELY 1st OCTOBER TUI CALL

We send herewith a copy of TUI (P & R) letter calling upon its affiliates to observe Ist October, 2021 as the “DAY OF ELEDERLY’. Being an affiliate of TUI, we did observe the day on Ist October, 2020 in the midst of the raging corona virus pandemic. This year is no different as only a fraction of our country men could be vaccinated. However, the situation is slightly better as most of the government offices and private institutions have opened for operation, though not fully. FOR A DIGNIFIED LIFE THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES is the slogan NCCPA calls upon its affiliates and state units to organise the programme through demonstration, rally, dharna, etc. as they deem fit as per the local conditions and send photographs to us for onward transmission to the TUI Headqarters.

With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

Sd/-KKN KuttySecretary General.

TUI CIRCULAR: 6th WORLD DAY OF STRUGGLE FOR PENSIONERSDAY OF THE ELDERLY OCTOBER 1, 2,021

The elderly, whose date of remembrance for the United Nations and of our struggle, is the 1st of October, that last year we spent more or less at the height of the coronavirus pandemic and the current one we face at the height of vaccination, although only for some countries and some sectors of the population.The pandemic, like any crisis, only uncovered the pot, to highlight the economic and social scourges, which are inherent (structural and systemic) to the capitalist system, such as the great inequality, between a small group of the world bourgeoisie, of those who are representatives of the imperialist phase, and the vast majority of the world population, limited and lacking all basic services, which must survive in a high percentage of subhuman conditions.

The pandemic has meant the worsening of working conditions, unjustified layoffs, wage cuts, the bankruptcy of small businesses, but none of this is new, only now the pandemic serves as an argument, the pandemic has become the front man of the capitalist system, because all the ills of the system are being put in the name of the pandemic.The conditions through which we, the elderly, have had to travel, existed since before the pandemic, the abuses in homes, residences, and nursing homes, the lack of free medical care and medicines, the misery pensions for retirees, the absence of pensions for the majority of the elderly people in the world, which go hand in hand with the illicit and corrupt enrichment of private retirement fund organizations; in the assault of the world’s private banks on the resources of those who gave their lives to enrich them, before when we were active workers they exploited us, now when we are retirees they steal from us.

We older people are a responsibility of the State, beyond the fact that in the stage of our previous life we have worked more years or less years, with more or less remuneration, because to give us work and a decent remuneration, is also the responsibility of that State. Then every elderly person should have guaranteed conditions for a dignified life, like any human being.

It has become clear, as without a pandemic, that some people and countries are more important than others, because, for example, the pharmaceutical transnationals hand in hand with the rich countries have crowded a few countries with vaccines until they have surpluses, while the poor countries have a dropper, or it does not reach them. It is simply imperialist behaviour at this stage of capitalist development.But it has also become clear that there is an ideological pandemic, which created in the laboratories of the bourgeoisie and imperialism, is lashing out at our peoples, with a variety of social democratic theories of class conciliation, which is aimed especially at workers, in order to make them believe that their situation of misery is negotiable, and that it can be fixed without fundamentally altering the capitalist system as such. They are even capable of questioning neoliberalism, to proposing supposed and non-existent variants of socialism, but without destroying the capitalist system. They are only proposing new economic strains of the same capitalist virus.Consequently, it is the task of the elderly, of those who were conscious workers, and of those who have once retired have decided to fight, to take up the theoretical tools of the class struggle, to train the new generations, in the understanding of what the current system based on the exploitation of the labor force by capital, to arrive at the need to move towards a new type of society, of a totally different society, more humane and without exploitation.

As the world’s only organization of retired persons, we have collected more than 600 signatures from various organizations in more than 60 countries, to the Open Letter that we announced at the ILO on the 14th of June. There are more and more organizations that join our fight, and with all of them we are going to make a GREAT DAY ON OCTOBER 1.

All kinds of activities (demonstrations, rallies, assemblies, various events, delivery of documents, etc., adapted to each reality) will surpass those that were already successful 5 previous World Days of Struggle of pensioners.The photographs, videos and documents that will capture this new Day will be the best demonstration that pensioners will help to end Capitalism, which is the great evil of Humanity.

FOR A DIGNIFIED LIFE, THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES!

LONG LIVE THE SIXTH WORLD DAY OF STRUGGLE OF PENSIONERS

Telecom Reforms are intended only to help private telecom companies – It offers pretty little to BSNL and MTNL.


The Union Cabinet has approved certain reforms for the telecom sector. It includes nine structural reforms and five process reforms, mainly intended to help the three private telecom companies.

Vodafone Idea, one among the three major private telecom companies, is in the verge of a collapse. It must be understood that, the telecom reforms have been announced urgently, only to  salvage Vodafone Idea.

All the three private telecom companies are badly hit by the judgement delivered by the Supreme Court of India last year. There was a long standing dispute between the government and the private telecom companies, as to whether the ‘non-telecom revenues’ should be included for calculating the payment of License Fee and Spectrum Usage Charge. The Supreme Court delivered the judgement in favour of the government. As a result of this, all the three private telecom companies have been compelled to pay an amount of Rs.1.31 lakh crores. The Supreme Court has ordered that this amount should be paid over a period of ten years.

However, through the decision taken in the Cabinet, the government has deferred the aforementioned payment, for a period of four years. Even after the expiry of four years, the private companies need not compulsorily pay the amount. This is because, as per the decision of the Cabinet, the government can convert this outstanding amount into equity.  The government companies of BSNL and MTNL are not benefited by this decision.  

As a result of this decision, hereafter, the telecom companies need not pay License Fee or Spectrum Usage Charge for their Non-Telecom Revenues. However, this decision will benefit BSNL and MTNL only in a very small way, since their Non-Telecom Revenues are negligible.

Until now, the spectrum allotted to the telecom companies through auctioning, is for a period of 20 years. Hereafter, this tenure will be for 30 years. Again, this will only help the private telecom companies, because the spectrum being allotted to BSNL and MTNL  are for free.

Further, until now, only 49% FDI has been allowed under the Automatic Route. Any amount of FDI, beyond this limit, had to go through the Government Route. But, now, the Union Cabinet has decided to allow 100% FDI, under the automatic route. This decision of the government is detrimental to the security of the nation, since, this has opened the doors for the multinational companies to completely take over the Indian private telecom companies.

 The government is already trying it’s best to kill BSNL and MTNL. In case BSNL and MTNL are closed down in future, then the entire telecom operations will go into the hands of foreign companies. Telecom sector is considered to be the second line of defence. Hence, the decision of the government to allow 100% FDI under the Automatic Route is detrimental to the safety and security of the nation.

Above all, the so-called telecom reforms approved by the Union Cabinet, do not have much to offer to the ailing BSNL and MTNL. BSNL is already crippled because, the government is not allowing BSNL to procure 4G equipments. Private companies are procuring their equipments from global vendors. However, BSNL has been mandated to procure it’s 4G equipments only from domestic vendors. No Indian company is having proven 4G technology. Thus, the government has wantonly created road-blocks in the launching of 4G services by BSNL. Further, the government has to pay outstanding dues to BSNL, to the extent of Rs.39,000 crore. Timely repayment of this amount by the government will enable BSNL to invest in the expansion of it’s networks. However, it is regrettable that, the Union Cabinet has not taken any decision to allow BSNL to come out of it’s crisis.

HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS, COMRADES- THE RESPONSE WAS MASSIVE.

Yes, Comrades, the United struggle has its own impact. The demonstration on 14-09-2021 called by the Coordination Committee of BSNLEU, AIBDPA AND BSNL CCWF has created much enthusiasm among the workers and pensioners as well. The thunderous slogans crossed the thick stone walls of the offices/ exchanges and reached to the bureaucrats sitting inside. The demands of pay revision, pension revision, wage arrears to contract workers, long pending medical bill payment, 30% Superannuation benefits to BSNL recruited employees etc are the burning issues of the workers and pensioners and they paricipated in large numbers despite pandemic and heavy rains in some places. So the struggle has given a strong message to the authorities and the government.CHQ heartily congratulate all the participant.
