Subject: Immediate settlement of pending issues in respect of retired employees under BSNL VRS-2019.


I am directed to refer to this office letter of Even no. dated 06.08.2020 on the above cited subject and to say that the updation of service particular e.g. Last pay drawn, qualifying service etc in the ERP / SAP as per the details in PPOs generated by CCAs have not been carried out in respect of large number of retirees under BSNL VRS-2019. The task was required to be completed by 14.08.2020. Non-updation in ERP/ SAP is delaying the finalizing of the Ex-gratia amount, Leave encashment and calculation of arrears / over-payment. This activity has to be completed on top priority before the amount of 4th instalment of Ex-gratia amount is received from DOT so that total Ex-Gratia is calculated accurately before the payment of 4th installment of Ex-Gratia and there is no mismatch in the PPO data and ERP data.

2. Further, the ERP HCM team has reported that in respect of around 640 retirees (circlewise summary enclosed) under the BSNL VRS-2019 Leave encashment has not been paid. In this regard, it is again requested to release the payment of encashment of EL / HPL immediately as per the extant instructions on the issue.

3. Non completion of activity by 14.8.2020 has been viewed very seriously by DIR(HR). Therefore, CGMT concerned may bestow their personal attention to complete the task latest by 05.09.2020 without fail.

This is issued with the approval of competent authority.

Yours faithfully,
(Sanjeev Kumar)
Assistant General Manager (Estt.)
