Comment: Dear Sudipta,

Please refer to our reply to your earlier mail, We are not aware of any annual limit of medical tests. You may get in touch with our Association's local representatives for further clarifications, if you wish to.

Comment: Dear Mr Dhanabalan,

There are no limitations to tests at approved labs, if prescribed by Bank's Medical Officer. It need not be restricted to once annually.

Comment: Dear Sudipta,

Irrespective of whether a pensioner is a member of REMBS or not, he or she can avail of free consultation of doctors, and also free diagnostic tests at Labs having tie up arrangements with the Bank, on Bank's Medical Officer's advice, for self and spouse. Medicines can also be availed of from the Bank's Dispensaries, if prescribed by the Bank's Medical Officer.

One of the circle association issued insdtruction that we should support the the younger generation, I had the guts to write back we should not support until ufbu prove that they really intend takinf care of the pensioners. One of the retired leader having more than 50 per cent of ufbu now says with all adacity that everybody knows that all demands cannot be achieved. After getting our support now he says they did not place before the iba our case not because our leaders requested but out of generosity he did it. Now for the third time we are cheated and we face court proceedings with the money,political power. There is no system rtespecting the feedback

We would prefer not to get involved in unnecessary controversies. We would also request you to kindly refrain from bringing up such issues in this website.

 about recent court injunction
It is quite unfortunate that there is a fight and in fact a legal fight in the pensioners' association. Serving unions handle a lot of money and power of transfer-posting and their age is much below. Here members start union activities after the age of 60. I would request the Association to place copies of the plaint and the court order in the web site so that we can see the deyails and can talk to them to withdraw it or if there is merit we will talk to you for a resolution outside the court. This will not lead to contemt. You can discuss with our pleader. But I want early solution so that our association activities can run without any interruption.
 
Comment: Dear Sabyasachi,

We appreciate your sentiments. Bankers, and more so, pensioners, should not fight in courts, and should sort out differences of opinion across the table. Unfortunately, just two candidates took the election matter to the court. No notice was served on us, and an ex parte ad interim injunction of City Civil Court, stalled the election. Not a single hearing took place.
Happily, our Association sought the intervention of the High Court, which has now appointed two Joint Special Officers (Advocates) to conduct the 2014 - 2017 Governing Body election within 3 months. It is expected that the entire process will be completed under their supervision, within July, 2017.
Uploading the plaint and repiy, will only result in acrimony.

Comment: Dear Mr Dhanabalan,

We think that as long as Bipartite settlements involving working conditions of Bank employees are continue to be negotiated with IBA, the pension benefits, which still fall within the scope of trade unions, will also be decided upon by them. As and when a United Forum of Bank Pensioners, is set up for directly negotiating with IBA, we will have to depend on UFBU only, apart from informal efforts elsewhere.

In central Govt super seniors are rewarded full pension on attainment of their ages 90yrs and at their age of 80 yrs & 85 yrs provided pensions are 75% & 90%.
I think considering above facts our management is kind enough to provide us a goodwill package like this.thank u managemt!!
 
Comment: Dear Udayan,

Updation of pension every 10 years, if not at intervals of 5 years, and full pension at very senior age, is obviously a much better option. But a package, however delayed, and inadequate, is better than no package at all. Let us see how we can improve upon this package.

 Good will Pacage.
For people retired from Bankin Industry how many are going to live for more than 80 years. You can just count them. Why this payment of lump sum depending on age. If they are alive that itself is a great thing and living more than 90 years will be really a blessing. Let the bank be magnanimous. Let the lump sum be Rs. 60000/ uniformly for all those who have crossed 80 years now as on the cut off date and rs.1.20 lac to all those who live beyond 90 years .Let the bank make the maximum entitlement under the package Rs. 1.20 lac. To explain if a retiree is in receipt of Rs60000 now after crossing 80 and live beyond 90 years he can be paid another Rs.60000/ This seems to be more reasonable. For the family pensioners the amounts can be fixed just half. The PENFED can take up the matter suitably with the Bank Management.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Subramanian,

Your proposed package is definitely better than the one offered by the Bank. But the Bank's package is an improvement on the NIL position prevailing till so far. Let us see how it can be further improved upon.

 Latest Developments in respect of our W.P. No.1875 of 2013
Federation has advised regarding our W.P.No.1875/2013, which is
being heard at Delhi High Court, that our application for change of
prayers made on the basis of SBI Employees' Pension Fund
Regulations 2014 has been allowed by the Hon'ble Judges at the
hearing held on 6th May 2015. The Advocates of the Union
Government, R.B.I and our Bank did not raise any objections on our
above application. The Judges have directed us to file an amended
W.P with our revised prayers within a week. There are no material
changes in our revised prayers. A copy of the order dated 6-05-2015 is
enclosed hereto for your information.
Our amended W.P will be filed by our Advocates within time limit
stipulated in the above order. Our W.P will continue to get listed under
Regular Matters for final hearing on every Monday and Tuesday. It
will be taken up within first five items, when Regular Matters are taken
up. After, the hearing of our above W.P. held on 8-04-2015 no Regular
Matter could not be taken up by the Judges as the Senior Judge was
engaged in the Special Bench daily in the afternoon. Although our
W.P would be listed on 11th and 12th of this month, our case may
not be taken up on these dates, in view of the time limit of one week
stipulated on 6-05-2015 for filing our amended W.P.
An important point which may be observed from the above order
dated 6-05-2015 of the Delhi High Court is the direction stating that
there is no need of counter affidavit because substantive
pleadings remain the same. We are therefore hopeful that our W.P
would be taken up for final hearing on 18th/19th/25th/26th of thismonth.

Sir, as advised by you to Venkatachalam the Delhi High Court made it clear that Rule/Regulation No.23(1) is the base for calculation of pension and one example also worked out and accepted by the Bank through the advocate.(Shri Jaipuriar) It is very clear that Rule No.23(1) has been accpted by the Bank. Does this judgement not cover the prayer of 1875/2013. Secondly can the same judges give another Ruling on the same. Please advise.
 
Comment: Dear Mr. Chandrasekhasaran,

The case of the individual pensioner from Jharkhand, was for payment of pension to him alone, calculated on the basis of the average salary drawn. Our case is on a representative capacity, and covers pensioners of all Bipartites.

It is reasonably expected that the same Bench will also give a favourable verdict to us.

The prayer made initially in Supreme Court, and due to be heard in Delhi High Court Div Bench, after being transferred from Supreme Court, is :
Pension to be paid @ 50% of last average salary drawn, s per Rule 23 (1) and deletion of Rule 23 (2) according to which different ceilings and different percentages ere being imposed.
This will benefit pensioners of all Bipartites and also those who are suffering on account of 40% and 50 % bifurcation.

Now that a favourable verdict has been pronounced in an individual case of a 7th Bipartite pensioner, by the same Div Bench of Delhi High Court, which is hearing our collective case, we are very hopeful of a favourable verdict which will benefit over 30,000 pensioners all over the country.

 7th bipartite pensioners vis-a-vis Delhi HC case 2353/2014
Dear Mr.Sujoy Ghosh,
The Delhi HC judgment clearly says that the Bank's lawyer has conceded that the basic pension of Mr.Jaipuriar has to be revised on the basis of the revised pay as per the 7th bipartite settlement in respect of his last moth of service. When such a revision has been conceded, it is logically applicable to all the affected pensioners. The Bank will not appeal since it has already conceded. There is no ground for appeal since the Bank has conceded. Hence, we can write to the Bank asking for the revision enclosing a copy of the Judgment and our pension fixation letter. The request may be routed through the Concerned branch/Regional Office and may be addressed to the LHO (PPG Dept).
 
Comment: Dear Mr. Parthasarathy,

We feel and believe that letters to the Bank will not yield any result, and only a direction from the Court to the Govt. to give clearance to the Bank, can resolve the stalemate. The Bank cannot decide on its own, without the concurrence of the Govt.

 INCREASE IN PENSION FOR 7TH BIPARTITE RETIREES
Dear friend,

This has reference to the letter of Shri R.Parthasarathy in these columns. I voluntarily retired from Ernakulam Zonal Office on 30.04.1998. At that time my basic pay was Rs.15,000/- in the revised scale and Rs.9700/- in the previous one. Accordingly my basic pension should have been Rs.7,500/- as the agreement was effective from 01.04.1998. But I am still drawing a basic pension of Rs.4250/- and D.P. thereon. To get the revised basic pension whom should I contact. I retired from zonal ernakulam, then under chennai LHO and presently the zonal office is under Kerala LHO. Kindly enlighten me as to whom I should put up a claim. Also let me know what are the supporting documents to be produced.

Yours very sincerely,

You belong to 7th Bipartite, and hence you have, like 33,000 other fellow pensioners, suffered. It is mainly about this, that our Delhi High Court case is deliberating on.

Revision of pension on the basis of the last drawn pay has already been conceded by the Bank in Delhi HC case 2353/2014. As such, it is suggested that all the affected 7th bipartite pensioners write to the Bank requesting for revision as is done in the normal course. In case the Federation gets us 50% instead of 50/40% (unsure prospects in terms of final judgment and further duration), we shall welcome it. Already thousands of pensioners have perished. It will be better if we claim our rights right now.

Comment: Dear Mr Venkatachalam,
The Bank has sought clearance from the Govt. for removal of anomalies affecting pensioners of 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Bipartites. Certain clarifications sought for, by the Govt, have since been furnished by the bank. This is in keeping with the assurances given by Corporate Centre, recently, at the structured meeting with our Federation.

 MEDICAL REIMBURSEMENT TO THE VRS/RESIGNEE RETIREE
SIR,
PLEASE CLARIFY THAT ANY SCHEME FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF MEDICAL BILL IS AVAILABLE FOR VRS/RESIGNEE RETIREE.
 
Comment: Dear Shri Lal,
If such a pensioner has been a member of EMWS, then only he or she is entitled to get reimbursement of medical bills under the scheme. However, such pensioners are not entitled to REMBS, except for the Rs 2 lacs scheme, available for the VRS optees of 2000-01.

 pension updation for 7th BPS
Can anybody confirm if anything cocrete is going to be decided reg. 100% DA and pension updation and if so what is expected time
 
Comment: Dear Mr Chahal,

Pension updation is a demand in the entire banking industry. But this is dependent upon acceptance of UFBU of Bipartites at intervals of 10 years, instead of 5 years.
100% DR neutralization is expected for pre Nov 2002 retirees, after the implementation of 10th Bipartite settlement.
