 DA neutrlization for pre 2002 retirees.
It is too early to come to any conclusion whether the DA merger is applicale to pre 2002 retirees of SBI or not. If IBA feels that the SBI pensioners are governed by SBI Pension Regulations and the agreement reached between IBA and UFBU will be applicale to PSU banks only then IBA has no business to say that da merger is not applicable to SBI.Only SBI management has the authroty to say that. Let us not lend our ears to rumours and hearsays. The competent bodies which can make such statements are our SBI WOrking staff Federations and PENFED>only. Already Mr H Ganapathy the PENFED president has enumerated what has transpired in the Structured meeting held in HYD>In the meeting. MD and other top officials had told that SBI Mgt is fully aware of the injustice done to 5th 6th 7th BP retirees and they had already taken up the matter with the finance ministry officials who gave a patient hearing and they further stated that the matter had /has been pursued with all sincerity. We have maintain little bit why more restraint at this material pont of time from making hasty remarks. Let us not also forget that our Chairman is also holding the post of Secretary in IBA. They will also be equally eager to solve the issue at an early date. Let us hope for the best.

Comment: Dear Arun,

It is a pleasure to welcome to you to our website, which we believe, you are visiting, for information. The demand for updation of pension (as applicable for Govt pensioners) has been voiced by our Federation, since quite some time. The IBA/Govt has reportedly responded to this issue by suggesting to UFBU during the 10th Bipartite talks, by asking whether they would agree to Bipartites at 10 year intervals (like the 10 year Pay Commissions). If this is not acceptable to the working employees, we have also demanded fresh pension fitment ( i.e. updation) for those who have crossed 70 years or 80 years of age, as they have already completed one or two 10 year periods, after retirement.
Please keep in touch.

Dear Sirs,
I take this opportunity to place before you my humble two suggestions regarding improvement in medical facilities for your consideration.
1) Whether permission for pathological/radiological investigations through approved diagonostic centers can be arranged by pension paying branch

2) Adequate stock of medicine is not maintained at the dispensaries resulting non availability of medicines at the required time.
In view of the above please look into the matter which will be of immense help for the poor pensioners.
Regards

Probir Sen Gupta
 
Comment: Dear Probir,

Thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately, the first one, regarding the involvement of pension paying branch for diagnostic tests, would not be feasible, according to current norms of prescribing such tests through the Medical Officers of Dispensaries. As regards the second suggestion, Corporate Centre has, on consistent demands of our Federation, recently instructed all Circle CGMs that pensioners should not go back from Dispensaries without medicines, and budgets should not come in the way. We are also pursuing the matter at the LHO level.

 100 % DA neutralization.
I doubt very much the approval aspect itself circulating amongst various levels. If Govt has conveyed the approval UFBU and other Staff Fedns would now be crying in full throat of their achievement in getting the 100% DA for all retired before 2002. Therefore thier keeping silent on the subject gives rise to suspicion. May be the approval with strings attached detrimental to the interests of the pensioners. May be regarding the effective date of da merger-either from 2005 ie the last date on which the merger has taken place -or from the date of implementation of the 10th BP aggrement when the DA merger is going to take place for all the working staff. Making a ststement is giving a commitment. Updation of pension it will remain a dream as for as the pensioners of the banking industry are concerned. They can examine updation of pension every 10 years and maximum a retiree may get twice updation of pension if he lives for more than 80 years. Compilation of statistics on the average life expectancy of retiree pensioners will throw some light on this. Between 70 to 80% of the retirees will leave for hevenly abode beofore reaching 80 years. The Govt/IBA have to be pressurised and convinced on this aspect for, if we do not get updation now you can never get it for ever. The talks on pension issues do not seem to have yet commenced. Still there is time.
 

R Parthasarathy wrote at 20-03-2015 6:12 pm:

 Pension revision
There are 03 basic issues for the 7th bipartite pensioners of SBI- revision of pension on the basis of the last drawn basic pay instead of the 1993 pay, graded neutralisation of DA for all pre-2002 pensioners and pension upgrading by merger of DA points up to 4440 as done in the case of the working employees. If the UFBU gets the merger(last issue) okayed, it will bring improvements in the range of Rs.7000 to 8000 or more app. to all pensioners.In the case of settlement of the first two issues, it is highly doubtful to get the benefits with retrospective effect. The benefit will be Rs.1000 to Rs.4000 app. Also, it will not be broad based and will not help pensioners in the lower pension brackets. The preferable goal is the merger of DA points at 4440 with effect from 1.11.2012(the Xth bipartite settlement date).

At present the pre-2002 November retirees are getting DA on slab basis whereas those who retired afterwards get DA with a 100 percent neutralisation basis. In case 100 percent neutralisation is allowed for us, we will get our basic pension plus DA @ 404.60 percent as gross pension.

Comment: Dear Mr. Chahal,

As you are aware, the pensioners who had retired prior to 1.11.2002, do not still get 100% Dearness Relief neutralization, and thus suffer financially.

There was a news that the Central Board of the State Bank of India had passed a resolution for some marginal improvement in the pension payable to the 5thg and 6th bipartite retirees and sent the same to the Govt of India for favour of their approval. The proposal, if approved by GOI, would benefit many pensioners with an increase in their emoluments with effect from 01.03.1999. If you have heard or have gathered any further developments in the matter, kindly publish it in these valued columnsfor the benefits of many elders like me.

We too have this unofficial information with us. But unless we get a confirmed news, we cannot upload on this website. It is likely that the implementation of 100 % neutralization of DR which will benefit all pre 2002 pensioners, will be made after 10th Bipartite implementation.

 100 % D.A. Neutralisation for Pre Nov 2003 retirees
UNITED BANK OF INDIA RETIREES’ WELFARE ASSOCIATION Vs United Bank of India

W.P. 507/2012

Judgement delivered by Hon’ble Justice I.P.Mukerji.J. on 4th March 2015

CONCLUDING PARAGRAPHS OF JUDGEMENT: (If you are interested in getting full copy of judgement you may send a mail to tvjkrishnan@yahoo.com)

Payment of dearness relief is a policy decision. This Court cannot rewrite by an order the policy of the respondent-bank. But this Court in entitled to make observations on an existing Policy or rule. This Court does observe that the policy and service conditions of the respondent bank for payment of dearness relief to its post November, 2002 retirees is arbitrary and discriminatory of the pre November, 2002 class of retirees. This Court makes a declaration to this effect.

Since the Court cannot rewrite a policy or make the rules of service and since the members of the writ petitioner association are not parties and only two pre 2002 employees are parties, I am not quashing or setting aside the existing policy and circulars of the respondent bank for payment of dearness relief.

I direct the Board of the respondent bank in consultation with the Central government and the Reserve Bank of India to take a reasoned decision, in the light of the above observations and findings regarding payment of 100% dearness relief to the pre November-2002 retirees’ of the respondent bank by 30th June, 2015.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Jayakrishnan,

This Court order on UBI management, is welcome. But irrespective of the order, it is highly likely that the anomaly in Dearness Relief neutralization at 100% valid for retirees before 1st Nov, 2002, will be rectified soon, for all retirees of all nationalized banks.

You have retired during the tenure of 9th Bipartite settlement, i.e. before its expiry on 31st Oct, 2012. So you would already have received, or would be receiving revised pension as per the 9th Bipartite salary.
We heartily reciprocate your Holi greetings.

Sir,

With reference to Bank's e-circular No. CDO/P&HRD-PM/25/2011-12 AND CDO/P&HRD-PM/68/2011-12 dated 27th May 2011 & 28th Sept. 2011 respectively,regarding revision of Pension as per 9th Bipartite settlement,to eligible members who have retired on or after 1.11.2007, I would very clearly like to know that whether and how to confirm if I'm eligible for the revision of the same OR this revision process is a fully systematized and automated one which will be(if any) calculated by LHO and will be put up to the Corporate Office for it's approval and the arrears(if any),will also be calculated by the respective LHO and will be credited to the pensioner's accounts in due course?

I would hereby request you to throw sufficient lights on my above-listed query & advice me accordingly.

Comment: Dear Debasish,

Those who had retired on or after 01.11.2007, were eligible to revision of their basic salaries, and hence, their pension calculated on such salaries, were also subject to upward revision. This is automatically done by the respective PPG Deptts. of the Circle in question. One does not have to check or apply for it. Please let us know the date of your retirement, to enable us to state whether you are eligible to benefit from revision under 9th Bipartite settlement.

 STAFF RATE BENEFIT CLARIFICATION
Sir,

Please clarify that whether Senior Citizen Interest rates will be applicable towards all those SB Accounts which are already earning an extra 1% above the basic rate out of Staff-Benefit rate facility
 
Comment: Dear Debasish,

The additional interest of 0.25% is paid to senior citizens only for Fixed Deposits of tenures of 1 year to upto 10 years. This is in addition to additional interest of 1% payable to SBI staff and pensioners. The additional interest paid to all senior citizens, is not paid for term deposits of tenures less than 1 year.

 Merger of DA points with Basic Pension
UFBU has set for itself the goal of achieving a merger of DA points with Basic Pension for the pensioners just like they have achieved for the working employees. We have to thank our own Federations and all the fighting employee organisations for taking up a very valid issue. I would like to add one point. When they do the merger for the pre-2002 pensioners, first, their existing DA should be recalculated at 100 percent neutralization and the merger will be on the basis of their revised DA figure. The existing DA for them is a graded one and if the merger is done on its basis, the anomaly will continue only.

 10th Bipartite &SBI Pensioners of 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th Bipartite
Sir ,
Please clarify our position i.c.t. 10th Bipartite.
Further in connection to our up-dation of Pension,do u think 10th bipartite will suffice it?
 
Comment: Dear Udayan,

We reiterate that 10th Bipartite settlement will benefit only 10th Bipartite retirees, as their pension will be calculated on higher new salaries.

Updation is the only solution for all pensioners of yesteryears to benefit from each Bipartite settlement, as notional fitment of their salaries will be made and pension will be revised. If this is conceded by the Govt,. we old pensioners will also benefit.

A beginning has been made in this direction, by all three pensioners' organizations in the banking industry, submitting a joint memorandum to the Govt, on common issues like Updation of pension, 30% Family pension, 100% D R neutralization for all pensioners. We have to continue to strive and achieve these demands, in order to bring in equity for pensioners.
