Resentment is brewing among employees of state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) posted in Middle Andaman region for non-payment of salaries for the month of February 2019. As per reports, not a single staff of BSNL serving different divisions in Middle Andaman has received their monthly salaries till date despite norms that prescribe payment of salaries on the last date of the month. But the February salary has not been paid so far to the employees reportedly on the plea that the management has got no money to pay.
“It is now more than 10 days that our salaries for the month of February have not been paid. We’re unable to manage our household expenditures without receiving salaries on time and are compelled to borrow money from friends and relatives and it’s quite a loss of face when we are not able to repay in time. We’ve to pay our house rents on time or face the ire of the landlords. We hope that senior management will take a strong note of the situation and take necessary steps for disbursal of our salaries at the earliest,” said a BSNL employee posted at Rangat.
