The Bank may explore the possiblity of implementing my suggestion. Similarly, the pension advise is mailed to the Bank pensioners who have provided their mail id to CPCC and in that they can introduce one column regarding date of restoration of commutation amount. In respect of State and Central pensioners for whom Bank pays the pension, the information is available in the monthly pension slip in the online portal.

Comment: Dear Mr Chavan,

This is, no doubt, a very good suggestion, which if implemented, will definitely be beneficial to pensioners. But it is also a fact that a large majority of pensioners, not having internet facility, would not be able to reap the benefit, if acknowledgement is at all given by the branch, online, or the uploading is informed by email. Acknowledgement and confirmation of uploading of certificate, by sms, seems to be a more practical and universally beneficial proposal.

 ROLE Of SBIPA (BC)
Comrades, I have come to know that PA is not extending a helping hand in a noble cause started by a pensioner merely he was not a member of PA. In my opinion apathy of association shown in the case of Late Shri Salil Kumar Ghosh court case is an example of ruthlessness. Role of SBIPA of his circle can't be appreciated in general and denial of usage of website in particular. I think there was no harm in offering their platform for noble cause of fundraising because if a favorable verdict is announced it will benefit all the pensioners irrespective of their tags of members or non-members. If an ation is initiated for benefit of masses rude attitude should not get a place in carrying it forward.
 
Comment: Dear Misra,

We request you to refrain from making uncalled for comments about the role of our Association, without checking up the facts. We had offered our help to Shri Salil Kr Ghosh, when he was alive, despite his not being our member. He used to visit our office, but he repeatedly declined our assistance. He had suggested that if he won the case in Div Bench, and the case ultimately went to Supreme Court, then the Association should implead itself as a party. There the matter stood, till his tragic demise. Even after that, we are in touch with Shri Sujoy Ghosh, who is pursuing the matter. We have collected and given copies of certain important documents, which are to be submitted in Court. We have not been apathetic, and we have stated it repeatedly.

As regards the use of our website, we have politely requested pensioners of different Circles, to network among themselves, for raising funds. We repeat, that we are sympathetic and supportive towards the struggle of the family of late Salil Kr Ghosh, and we shall continue to be so.

 Collection of Funds in the Calcutta Case
Sir,

Myself and Mr.Srinivasan, Jayakrishnan and Mr.Gudi are collecting funds to help the affected person in the case but one thing we are not at all using your web site for this purpose. We are sending individual mails and request them to circulate it to their friends to help the person and by that if the Advocate attends the case and gets a favourable judgement it will not only help him but for the entire 7th BP retires. May I ask you Sir, in caseif he wins the case will the Federation observe silence over that and keep quite without quoting and fighting for others? Please, realise that a friend in need is friend in deed. Please have a mind whether he is a member or not. Secondly, please note the same Federation at Chennai fought a case and lost it here. But went on appeal(Federation) and got it dismissed. The expenses were born by the Federation. If so why not in this case? He was also not a member of the Assocation of Chennai Circle? Please, note we never use this forum for the sake of non members but do it if at all done with human magnanimity.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Chandrasekharan,

Please do not misunderstand us and brand us as pensioners lacking in compassion for fellow pensioners. Our thoughts and prayers are fully in favour of the 33000 7th Bipartite pensioners, who have been so shabbily treated. Our case now in the Delhi High Court Div Bench, seeks 50% of salary as pension for all pensioners, including the deprived 7th Bipartite pensioners. The late Salil Kr. Ghosh used to visit our office. We had committed to him, upon hs request, to implead ourselves as a party to the case, if he won it in the Div Bench, and Bank/Govt went on appeal to Supreme Court. We had only politely requested pensioners to kindly refrain from using this website, for collecting funds, and communicating with each other. We had suggested that all of you network and proceed.
Incidentally, we have already provided copies of the Pension Regulations, to Shri Sujoy Ghosh, for submission to the lawyer of the late Salil Kr Ghosh, so that his family is not deprived yet again.

I read your note under the column current news about the above case at Calcutta High Court. In fact that we feel (specially my self)that we have not made any derogatory statement about the functioning of the Association in the web site. I (We) have only shared the plight of the 7th BPs pensioners of the SBI (Yes, you will appreciate that it is a common issue of SBI Pensioners) and expressed and shared the news and proceedings of the above case at the Calcutta High Court. However, it is not our intention to collect funds for the purpose of the case using the web site, and as you have suggested we have already communicating to the individuals by sending e mails to the like minded members directly to their mail ids. Any how , I reiterate once again assure to the administrators of the web site that it is not my intention to use the web site for collection of funds for the purpose of the case. The suggestion of the Association in web site in this regard is well taken by me . This for your information.
Any how my only wish that justice delayed should not be justice denied for the 7th BPs of SBI Pensioners. Once again I thank you that we have the moral support of the Association in the matter.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Srinivasan,

Thank you very much for appreciating our stand point. We have never suggested that any derogatory comment has been made by you or other pensioners of the 7th Bipartite, desperately seeking justice. We are fully with you. We had told the late Salil Kumar Ghosh that as desired by him, if he won the case in the Div Bench, and if the Bank/Govt went on appeal to Supreme Court, we would implead ourselves as a party, despite his not being a member of our Association. We had requested him to give us a copy of his petition, but it is still not available with us. We are not also sure whether he had invoked the Shastri Award while claiming 50% of the salary drawn by him, as pension.
Even if his widow wins the case, we are not sure whether this would benefit the 33000 7th Bipartite pensioners who were deprived of their legitimate pension in such an unjust manner. Even then we extend our fullest moral support to the family of the deceased pensioner, for the fight waged by him.
Incidentally, the case initially filed by our Federation, and now being heard in the Div bench of Delhi High Court, covers not only the 7th Bipartite pensioners, but also all pensioners.
Please keep writing to us. Our best wishes are with all of you.

We agree that the date of implementation of the 8th Bipartite, in respect of payment of revised pension, should have been 01.11.2002 and not 01.05.2005. But this injustice pales into insignificance, compared to the monumental injustice meted out to the 7th Bipartite retirees, who continue to draw pension on the basis of 6th Bipartite salaries even today.

Unfortunately, our Association, though being supportive and sympathetic, cannot formally help in the raising of funds. The late Salil Kumar Ghosh, though not a member of our Association, used to visit our office, and apprise us of latest developments in the case. He had not asked us to be a party to the case, which he had filed as an individual pensioners. We are also in touch with Sujoy, about the case and are trying our best to help within our limitations.

I am confident that the SBI Pensioners' Federation will file an appropriate affidavit before the Hon. Delhi High Court.
 
Comment: Dear Udayan,

The filing of affidavits regarding the change of pension rules to pension regulations, is just a technical requirement applicable to all the parties. Our Federation is doing the needful. The Rules or Regulations only lay down the guidelines for payment of pension. The injustice done to the 7th Bipartite pensioners, was done not by these Rules or Regulations, but by the Bipartite Agreement signed by the parties. This anomaly will get rectified, if the Court gives a verdict specifying payment of 50 of last average salary drawn to be the basis of pension calculation.

I have received the whole text through e-mail and have gone through it.

I did not find any clause that restricts the computation of pension to those who retired between 1.11.1997 and 31.10.2002 based on the pre-revised scales. I have also sought for an opinion from a practicing lawyer. I, therefore, feel that the present position needs to corrected by refixation of pension to the above pensioners and arrears paid from the date of retirement. I am confident that the SBI Pensioners' Federation will file an appropriate affidavit before the Hon. Delhi High Court.

We are thankful to you in pointing out a mistake in our response to the query of Shri Kedar Nath Agrawal. We had inadvertently mentioned the 8th Bipartite period, in our reply. The Special Balancing allowance was introduced only in the 9th Bipartite agreement. It may not be out of place to mention here, that we pensioners had hoped that as this fund was not separately needed for SBI, it would be used to remove all the anomalies of pensioners. It was not done, and it only benefited some pensioners who retired during the 9th Bipartite period.
We have corrected our reply to Kedar. Thank you once again.

 REMBS facility
Many ladies or gents leave Bank's service after 30 years due to health/personal problems but they are not eligible for Bank's medical facility as they have not reached the age of 60. Bank should consider to extend medical facilities to these employees too, as the Bank is giving the facility to employees who have joined the Bank at the age of 30 and after putting 30 years of service, retire at the age of 60. Bank can charge extra contribution from such employee.
 
Comment: Dear Anita,

You have echoed our feelings. It has been the constant demand of our Association and our Federation, that all pensioners should be entitled to REMBS benefits, irrespective of the manner in which they left the bank.

Comment: Mr Saini,
We think that you might be mistaken about the status of the case. A new bench is supposed to hear it for the first time. How can it then be listed for final hearing ?

 HOUSING LOAN
HOUSING LOAN
Pl refer my post dated 13th January as under "One of our lady pensioners had obtained HL together with loan on commercial basis for Housing purpose in the year 2010. She retired in 2013. She has been paying the loan regularly. Now she desires to obtain enhancement in the HL to repay and close the commercial loan as the rate of interest is higher. Is such facility available to the pensioners. If so, please quote the relevant circular". Pl Regards
 
Comment: Dear Menino,
We had missed your earlier post. Our apologies. Staff housing loans are granted to existing employees at concessional rates. Additional Housing loans are also granted for renovation, additional construction etc. When a staff retires, the facilities available to existing employees, are no longer available. So the enhancement of the Housing loan, for the purpose of repayment of the commercial loan for housing purpose, is, in our opinion not possible. You may advise her to approach the bank and obtain a clarification.

I took vrs in the 2001 under vrs schem.I work for 19and half year.I have also opted for bank's pension scheme.Am I eligible for pensio?Please let me know.Bank has not paid me bank's PF contributions.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Bhatt,
You were perhaps, not eligible to draw pension and get a refund of Bank's contribution of PF, as you had not put in the minimum of 20 years of pensionable service in the bank. You may approach the PPG Deptt of the LHO under which you had served last, for a confirmation.

 Medical Reimbursement -Surgery for removal intestinal obstruction
My wife has been operated for intestinal obstruction in a listed Hospital like Peerless & bill amount happens to be more than Rs.1,98,000/-.Pl.advise whether I can re-imburse the Amount.
 
Comment: Dear Udayan,
We are very concerned at this development. We presume that you are a member of REMBS. We also presume that you had informed the CM(HR) of the module controlling your pension paying branch, about the hospitalization and the estimate of expenses. If not, please do so immediately. As regards the question whether the expenses can be reimbursed, please ensure that the doctor mentions any of the listed diseases (please refer to the page : REMBS Medical facilities for pensioners, on this website) in the prescription and the same is also mentioned in the discharge certificate. For instance, the operation for intestinal obstruction, could have resulted from an accident, liver ailment, hernia, etc, which are all included in the list. Please keep in touch with our Association's local representatives for any assistance or guidance. We wish your wife a speedy recovery.
