• Recovery of Strike period Salary : AUAB leaders met CMD., BSNL today and pointed out that the wage cut for participation in the 3 days strike has been done wrongly. That is, the three day wages has been arrived at by taking 28 days as a month while it should have been 30 days. As a result, more amount has been deducted from the salary of employees. Moreover, three days wages should have been calculated on basic pay and DA only. But in many SSAs, this calculation has been done wrongly. The CMD BSNL and Director (HR) assured to do the needful.
