Expected salary of BSNL employees after 7th Pay Commission

The government of India had implemented the 7th Pay Commission committee report for the Central Government employees which will be effective from 01.01.2016. When you search about BSNL employee salary after 7th CPC on internet or Google, you find that many websites are providing wrong info related to BSNL Employees pay revision. I want to inform you that 7th CPC is not applicable for Bharat Sanchar Nigam Employees. There is a separate Pay Revision for the PSU employees which is commonly known as Pay revision Committee or PRC. The Government of India already announced the formation of 3rd Pay Revision Committee for the next pay revision in Central Public sector Enterprises employees. The committee is headed by Justice Satish Chandra (Retired) & It has to submit the report to the Government within a period of six months from the date of constitution of the committee.

7th CPC benefit vs 3rd PRC

At the time of 2nd Pay revision committee formation government have instructed the PRC to keep in mind the 6th pay revision while making the recommendation for PSU employees. The CPC has proposed the fitment benefit of 24% to central Government employees & 3rd PRC has proposed the varying fitment benefit of 3% to 42% for the PSU employees but the government has decided to go with the uniform fitment of 30% to all CPSEs depending on the affordability.  Recently 7th CPC implemented for central government employees in which 15% fitment benefit extended for the government servants. Similarly, we can expect the 20% fitment benefit for the CPSE workforce.

BSNL JTO expected salary

The telecom giant recruits Junior Telecom Officers on E1 (16400-40500) pay scale. As on December 2016, D.A. rate is 120.3%. On assuming 20% fitment benefit we can calculate the new basic pay for the BSNL JTO.

New Basic Pay = 16400 + 16400X120.3% + (16400 +16400X120.3%)X20%

=  16400 + 19729.2 + 7225.84

= 16400X2.6406

=  43355

After Rounding off the amount, New basic pay of Junior Telecom Officer will be = 43360

Similarly, we can calculate the estimated revised pay scales after 3rd Pay Revision in CPSEs. In the below table you can find the expected pay scales in BSNL.

Wage Revision for non-executives

Non-executive employee’s wages are revised by the CPSE itself. The management of  Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has constituted the committee for the same on dated 26.12.2016. However, the fitment benefits for both executives and non-executives are kept equal.

BSNL TTA salary after wage revision

The largest Telecom PSU has recently conducted the recruitment process of Junior Engineer (Erstwhile TTA) on the NE-9 pay scale of 13600-25420. On taking fitment benefit of 20% the new starting basic pay against the 13600 would be 35900.

New Basic Pay of TTA = 13600 + 13600X120.3% + (13600 +13600X120.3%)X20%

=  13600 + 16320 + 5984

=  35910

Direct Formula for calculating revised basic pay

If some X is having the basic pay of Rs 15000. His/Her expected basic pay after 3rd PRC would be calculated by multiplying 2.64 on current basic pay.

His new basic from 01.01.2017 would be  in Rs = 15000X2.65

= 39600

Now you can easily calculate your expected basic pay after the implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL.

  1. Sir I got a list that is regarding special recruitment drive that was conducted in 2016 Feb…and I am selected for Maharashtra circle but there is no intimation from bsnl and in that list document verification date is over…so please give me suggestion what I have to do…

    1. You should write a letter or file an RTI to the concerned officer regarding the status of the exam which was conducted in Feb 2016. They will tell you everything. As per my opinion, RTI is the best option to get information from the government department.

    2. Sir thanks for your suggestion I have called to Maharashtra circle and they said you are selected for srd-tta recruitment in second list we will inform you after approval from New Delhi…..but as I saw in list already training is started from 15-01-2017…

  2. sir,
    it has already half of month passed when the JTO application form will come in the official website is there any problems with selection through GATE.

    1. No, there is no chance of separate BSNL JTO exam as the government company already declared in newspapers that it will consider the GATE score for the recruitment of JTOs.

  3. Sir,
    I am selected as JE in BSNL in recently held examination.

    1. Can DoT cancel this recruitment? I am really scared.

    2. What will we get in hand after 3rd PRC. Is it 35K?

    1. BSNL JE recruitment not yet canceled. Don’t worry, just the process got halted due to some administrative reason which might be a court case or anything. As BSNL has invested huge money in it so it’s not going to be canceled. After implementation of 3rd PRC, BSNL JE in hand salary would be 35K per month.
