BSNL to claim “recoupment of leave encashment” related to the DoT period.
When the DoT recruited employees were absorbed in BSNL, the leave earned during their DoT service was also carried forward. Hence, when the employees absorbed from the DoT retired, the leave encashment for the portion of the leave earned during the DoT service, should have been paid by the DoT. However, this did not happen. The entire Leave Encashment amount was paid by the BSNL. At that time itself, the unions and associations raised this issue and claimed settlement by the DoT. However, it was not accepted by the DoT. The BSNL Management also did not pursue this issue with the government. But, now, the BSNL Management has decided to claim recoupement of whatever amount it has paid to the employees, as Leave Encashment, for the leave accumulated as on 01.10.2000. BSNLEU, strongly supports this move being taken the BSNL Management. The Union, together with the AUAB, will take the needful action to settle this issue.
