Assam Circle

Sanchar Nigam Pensioners' Welfare Association

We are at the crossroad post VRS. Decision to go for VRS is right; but attitude of the authority seems to be not.  To protect our interest and to remain connected, the need of a platform was felt. Our colleagues decided to be in the association led the most dynamic Sh. G. L. Jogi, GS, SNPWA.

Prevailing pandemic prevented in-house gathering. So, we held a virtual meeting on July 9, 2020 for detailed deliberations to form a Circle body of SNPWA after conducting a transparent online opinion poll for selecting the new office bearers. Responses were overwhelming. Our beloved GS graced the occasion with his virtual appearance and enthusiastic speech followed by a question-answer session. 

A new CEC comprising of 17 members was formed with Sh. Shantanu Choudhury as Prresident, Sh. Arijit Roy Pradhani as CS to lead the circle.

GS have had a detailed discussion with CMD/BSNL

regarding deduction of TDS arbitrarily on ex-gratia according to the old tax regime. GS explained to him the entire background of the issue and also about legitimate right of VRS optees to exercise their option for deduction of TDS on ex-gratia which has been blatantly denied to them in defiance of the Finance bill 2020 which has been approved by the Parliament.

Also informed him that Sr GM( Taxation) is fully of the view that VRS optees need to be given an option to exercise their legitimate right regarding TDS deduction on ex gratia while making them final payment of exgratia. Also informed CMD about unjustified, unreasonable and stubborn attitude of the Director ( Finance) in not issuing fresh instructions to the field units regarding exercising of option for TDS deduction at the time of making the final payment of ex gratia.

CMD , after a very patient hearing of the entire issue, fully assured that he would get the entire issue reexamined and would decide keeping in view legitimate right of VRS optees regarding TDS deduction at the time of final payment of ex-gratia.
