(SHRI SANJAY DHOTRE)
(a) to (d) No, Sir. Pension revision of absorbed employees of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is linked to the pay revision of the serving employees inasmuch as pension is calculated on the basic pay which the retired employee was earning at the time of retirement.
Pension may be revised if the said basic pay is revised on account of pay revision of serving employees.
