This is a Website maintained by All India BSNL Pensioners' Welfare Association for the benefit of Pensioners Society in general and BSNL Pensioners in particular.
AIBSNLPWA was formed by the united will and strong determination of more than 500 BSNL pensioners from all parts of India assembled in a national convention at Chennai on 20th August 2009. This new organisation was established without any political/regional/cadre/caste bias by the people who were in different unions while they were in BSNL service.
The immediate target for launching this All India Organisation of BSNL Pensioners was pension revision of those who retired from BSNL before 1-1-2007. This most important issue was igonored by all the service organisations and major Central Govt. Pensioners' Organisations. Ofcourse, it was not thier fault. The Service organisations in BSNL were preoccupied with membership verification, recognition, pay revision etc.etc. Central service Pensioners Organisations treated BSNL retirees as Public Sector Pensioners and expcted them face their fate alongwith other PSE pensioners.
AIBSNLPWA took up the issue of pension revision with all seriousness, presented the case with solid and valid arguements and finally achieved it when the Central Cabinet took a formal decision on 20th January 2011 to revise the pension with same fitment formula applied for pay revision of BSNL staff. The 60,000 and odd pensioners got financial benefits amounting more than Rs 900 crore.
Today, AIBSNLPWA has branches in all the Telecom Circles in India and more than 200 SSAs. .
