Ref: BSNL Corporate Establishment Letter No : 1-02/2012-PAT(BSNL) dated 08.Jan.2019

Attention is invited to the provision contained in para 2.2 of this office order No.1-16/2010-PAT(BSNL) dated 07.05.2010 wherein it was stated that Non Executives employees of BSNL who have joined on or after 1.1.2007 will be placed in the initial stage of the revised pay scales of BSNL ERP in which they are appointed.

In cases where emoluments in the pre revised pay scale(s) on the date of joining BSNL [i.e. Basic Pay + DP/DA applicable on the date of joining] exceeds the sum of pay fixed in the revised pay scale and applicable IDA thereon on the same date, the difference will be allowed as Personal pay and it will be absorbed in future increments.

The matter has been reviewed and the competent authority of BSNL has decided to dispense with the methodology of pay fixation as referred to above and now, the pay of Non executives (other than Junior Engineer erst while TTA’s) who have already been extended the benefit of one advance increment) appointed on or after 01.01.2007 and up to 07.05.2010 may be fixed at the minimum of their respective revised BSNL pay scale plus the difference amount which was allowed as Personal pay (emoluments in the pre-revised pay scale(s) on the date of joining BSNL [i.e. Basic Pay + DP/DA applicable on the date of joining] exceeding the sum of pay fixed in the revised pay scale and applicable BSNL IDA thereon on the same date) not to be absorbed in future BSNL increment on the date of appointment, so as to minimize the loss of pay on the date of implementation of new pay scales and the affected BSNL Non executives may be paid the due arrears.

In view of the decision above, the pay of the BSNL Non Executive employees (other than TTAs) appointed between 01.01.2007and 07.05.2010 may be re fixed on their date of appointment and the Personal pay if any drawn by such Non Executives as referred to above may be adjusted accordingly

However, while implementation, it may be ensured that the refixation does not lead to any additional financial burden other than mere restoration of benefit under pre revised pay scales. So, with this news, BSNL employees who were appointed in the non executive cadre between 01.01.2007and 07.05.2010 will get some arrears in the salary of BSNL ERP ESS portal if they are eligible as per the above conditions.
