The order reads as:Learned Counsel for the respondent informs the Court of the death of the respondent.He is directed to furnish date of death and details of legal representatives of respondent within one week.List the matter after one week.

Comment: Dear Sujoy,
Now that the Court has accepted the substitution of plaintiff, let us hope that Salil Ghosh's fight will ultimately yield a positive outcome for numerous pensioners.

Mr Rohit Sharma and K R Saini--Your posts of 12th.December--The case no.is APO351of 2013.I am very hopeful because after a long gap it was being listed from the 10th.Nov.2014 continuously every day and was finally taken up on the 9th.December.But it took two days to be posted on the site.Thus in the event it is taken up on the on the 18th.Dec.we may know about it's fate in the usual manner.I would not be surprised if it is finally decided by mid January 2015 because if it is not decided by the 23rd.Dec 014 the Courts will close for the X'mas holidays and open in the first week of Jan.2015.So,cheer up and cheers.Time is nearing for celebrations!Sujoy Ghosh

On the 9th.December 2014 the case came up before the bench of the CJ,and another Judge and it was ordered that the death certificate and the the legal heirs be submitted to Court and the next date is fixed for the 18th.December 2014 for the purpose.It is now expected that another one or two dates may pass by and an order may be expected thereafter.There is every reason to be hopeful to expect a favourable order within a month or two at the latest.The dates may be checked on the Calcutta High Court web site.Sujoy Ghosh

Please let me know whether vrs retirees will get justice for 50 percent pension and pension for the grade on which they have retired.If so please let me know the financial benefit they will get and expected time for justice.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Chahal,
Our demand has been 50% of last average salary is to be paid as pension. Not 40% and without any arbitrary ceilings. This is the crux of our case at Supreme Court, now transferred to Div Bench, in Delhi High Court. If we get a favourabe verdict, not only 33,000 pensioners of 7th Bipartite but all pensioners will benefit. The case is slated for hearing on 27th Jan, 2015. We cannot predict the outcome, but are hopeful of a positive one.

The Bank Pensioners, especially the pre-2002 ones, will be disheartened by the stalemate in the wage negotiations. It is evident that the unions are being silently pushed over by a strong bureaucracy at the centre. The Union leaders should accept this and react either with do-or-die opposition or accept logical scaling down of the demands. The AIBEA website is still mentioning what happened in the South zone only on the relay strike day. Nothing is known about the developments in the other zones. The IBA and the Govt. are totally indifferent. It is a sad situation.

Please pardon us for the delay, in furnishing our response to your query. The amount earmarked for domicilliary treatment, cannot be carried forward.

Comment: Dear Mr Rao,

While we fully agree with your feelings of deprivation and the consequent frustration, we have to continue to wage our battle, in courts and outside courts, within our limitations. Our Federation has to deliberate on the sorry plight of pensioners, and devise further strategies in addition to the court battles. Let us not blame the judiciary, because there also things proceed in a typical manner.

 GOI Pay Commissions
SujoyDa u have correctly explained my observations & what I actually wanted to say in my post dt. 23.11.2014.Our Leaders have claimed 25% hike.According to 7 th pay commission of GOI the minimum Basic Pay will be Rs.21000/- to the Messengers /sweepers of Govt. employees and on the other hand our Officers' Starting basic pay will be below Rs.21000/-.This discrimination will be shocking for all of us active & retired.
 
Comment: Dear Udayan,
The statistics furnished by you, are indeed shocking for pensioners like us. But there is no point in comparing the salary and pension of Govt employees, with those of Bank employees. At one time, Bank employees had an edge. No longer so. As long as Pay Commissions continue to be applicable only for Govt employees, there is no point in lamenting about these anomalies. What we pensioners can strive for, is direct negotiation with IBA, about the quantum of pension to be received by us, updation, Family pension etc., instead of depending on the working employees Federations to negotiate (if at all) on our behalf.

Sujoy Ghosh wrote at 25-11-2014 2:58 pm:

 GOI Pay Commossions
Udayan-your post of 23.11.2014.You probably want to say that the PAY commissions of the GOI may be beneficial to us.I would also like to believe that, as there would be uniformity in the dispensations and discrimination would be avoided or done away with altogether.But that would not be palatable to the working unions with their disruptive/blackmailing techniques and sellouts like that of the 7th.BPs would not have taken place.There has to be all out support of the working employees at all levels and a proper understanding of the situation and the better benefits accruable.But having worked under the dictatorial yoke of the Unions, shaking off the yoke is quite far off.Sujoy Ghosh
 
Comment: Dear Sujoy,
Please appreciate that the GOI Pay Commission is not meant for Bank employees. Unless and until rules are amended, they will continue to cater to Govt employees. Condemning the unions for this situation, is neither here nor there. We are not taking up a brief for them, but let us be rational. Trade unions would not like to let go of the right to negotiate on service conditions, including pay and also pension. Pensioners' Federation has to fight for its own right to negotiate exclusively for and on behalf of pensioners. This would definitely improve matters for us.

At the same time they cannot and should not tell the members what can we do?

This website is the official website of SBIPA (Bengal Circle), not that of the Federation. It is our duty to remind our members and other interested correspondents that collective unity and solidarity is always more effective than sporadic individual protests. We are fellow pensioners and we never ask anyone not to act according to his or her conscience. All that we emphasize upon is our collective strength.

You can utilize this balance for hospitalization expenses for your wife or yourself, for specified diseases. You can also utilize 1% per year of Rs 7 lacs, i.e. Rs 7,000/- for domicilliary treatment.

Comment: Dear Mr Dhanabalan,
We fail to understand how pay commissions are to be applied to banks. What has been suggested in response to the demand for updation, by UFBU, during the current wage negotiations, is whether they will agree to have Wage settlements at gaps of ten years, instead of five years.

 Sri R.Parthasarathy's post.
The intentions of bringing the banking industry under Public Utility Services is evident. The all banking working staff fedns have started chalking out a united plan to get their wage settlement reached which may include indefinite strike. Now it may not be possible. Rlys is a public Utility service and have we ever heard that rlys have gone on long strikes. Now wage settlements can be only through negotiations and not through strikes . That is the message.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Subramanian,
Banking service has been declared as an essential service, in the past also. That has not prevented strikes. The negotiating parties will decide their respective courses of action. We can only wait for the outcome and discover whether there is any cheerful news for pensioners.

A recent IBA circular mentions that Banking has been included in the list of Public Utility Services under Industrial Disputes Act. The timing of this announcement when there is so much unrest among the Bank employees surely raises eyebrows. The workmen associations may inform the members about the likely impact. The Pensioner community also has to watch the developments.

 Pensioners
LIC pensioners have gained high court and Division Bench verdicts favouring pension updataion. But the LIC and the Government have dragged them to the Supreme Court where they are really putting in strenusous efforts to get the SLP heard. An anguished cry in their website is reproduced: Quote:How many days or weeks the hapless pensioners to keep hoping to get the updated increased
pension?

Is there no system or no one answerable why a case posted on a day does not come up for
hearing? Why the Courts do not have proper time frame? Why list out dozens of cases for a
day when hardly a few cases are called up?

Why raise the expectations of beleaguered pensioners of their case coming up for hearing on an anticipated date? When it is said to be a date for final hearing, why is not taken up the same day or very next day?

How many more pensioners do the GOI, MOF, the LIC Management or the courts expect or want to die before delivery of the final justice?

Why the courts do not immediately fix the next date of hearing when the case could
not be heard for some genuine or unavoidable reasons on the allotted date? Why a provision of
'mentioning ' if the same cannot be maintained.

Is there God in the Heaven? Will the justice, the final justice in favour of pensioners be delivered. unquote. This is the way our legal system works. God save us all.

Comment: Dear Mr Raghunathan,
We are not aware of any such extension. Life certificates must be submitted normally within 30th Nov of each year, for payment of pension or family pension to continue. However, when it is found that some pensioners/family pensioners have not yet submitted their life certificates within the last date, they are allowed some more time every year. Life certificates may be submitted in non pension paying branches too.

 Pensioner community
There is positive orientation in the present government's general attitude towards senor citizens and pensioners.
1. Loan limits enhanced to very useful levels
2. Maximum loan eligibility age relaxed
3. Simplification of the process of ensuring life certificates.
4. Sudden change in the attitude of the IBA is perceptible in the acceptance in principle of 100 percent DA for all, family pension enhancement to be considered and the most important issue of periodical updating of pension being taken up with some modification. One can easily attribute all this to the change in the government. Our Federation is requested to use the momentum to ensure decent living conditions for all based on equality.

Dear Mr Parthasarathy,

Comment: Dear Mr Panicker,
We are pained at your observation about our Federation. If you do not believe in collective strength, you are free to organize individual protests, and hope the authorities to resolve our problems. Please refrain from making such comments on this site.

 Regarding Life Certificate
This refers to Mr.V P Handa's post dated 13/11/2014.Dear Handaji you can submit your Life Certificate to any Branch vide Banks circular No,CDO/P&HRD-PPFG/29/2011-12 dated 3rd Jan 2011.I am pasting some para of the said circular for your ready reference:
ii. Life certificate in the physical form may be submitted in the prescribed format bythe pensioner / family pensioner not necessarily to the home branch where his /
her pension account is maintained but to any branch. The acknowledgement of
having received the Life Certificate will be issued to the pensioner / family pensionerby the Branch where the Life Certificate is submitted. After receiving the LifeCertificate the branch (Home / Non Home) will verify the signature / thumb
impression from CBS and update the same in the related HRMS site. Life
Certificate can be updated in the HRMS site by any officer of the branch.
iii. When Life Certificate is submitted at a Non Home Branch, after updating the record in HRMS, the branch shall forward the original Life Certificate to the Home Branch and retain a copy of the same for their record.Regards
