 7th bipartite pensioners vis-a-vis Delhi HC case 2353/2104
SBI owes the 7th bipartite settlement pensioners the debt of revision of pension on the basis of their genuine basic salary. Unfortunately, SBI does not even acknowledge the debt - even after 17 years.In the case No.2353/2014 of Delhi HC the Bank Lawyer has acknowledged the debt by conceding the request of Mr.Jaipurar. Instead of wasting more time in the Indian legal labyrinth , the Pensioners' Fedefration should go for a compromise settlement with the Bank. It has to offer withdrawal of its case in Delhi HC in exchange for the Bank's commitment to revise the pension for the 7th Bipartite pensioners just as they have done for all others.
 
Comment: Dear Mr. Parthasarathy,

The question of withdrawing our case in the Delhi High Court, does not arise. We have fought so far, and we shall see the fight till the end. Compromise on this issue affecting thousands of pensioners (including the blatantly cheated 7th Bipartite pensioners) is out of question. The favourable verdict given in the single case by the same bench, is a very hopeful development. Let us hope for the best in our case.

 Delhi HC case 2353 of 2014- Mr.Jaipurar
Dear Mr.Sujoy Ghosh, Let me thank you for the response to my mail. The possibility of the SBI filing an appeal is remote. 1. The Bank's Lawyer, according to the Judgement, has conceded the request.2.It is a Bench judgement which should carry weight. It is very surprising and painful that the top men in our organisation do not act according to the situation. It is high time they became more pragmatic and less dogmatic.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Parthasarathy,

we wish to add to what you have shared about the case of the pensioner from Jharkhand. The case was disposed of in his favour, by the same bench which is hearing the case filed by our Federation. We are hopeful that the verdict given in the single case, is likely to help in our Federation's case. We are waiting for 6th May.

 Medical facility
I am thankful to receive the reply of my request dot.15-04-15 in respect of medical facility to all pensioners irrespective of the reason whatsoever.In this connection, my submissions are that those pensioners are getting Rs.2000/- P.A. Under M.F.S., at least they should be increased with at least Rs. 4000/- P.A. and if Bank desire for any contribution to it every employee will be ready for it.Pl. explore it with the Bank. Thanks.

I understand from a member who attended the recent meeting at the Calcutta University Institute centenary hall that the president,Sri R.N Bannerjee had requested for contributions for a case filed by an individual in a High Court.That is welcome if it is true.But can it be clarified with details of the case.Sujoy Ghosh
 
Comment: Dear Sujoy,

First there was no AGM, this time, thanks to a Court order. Ther was only a Pensioners' Meet and Pension Adalat followed by felicitation of pensioners attaining the age of 75 years. The AGM will be held after completion of election of Governing Body.
Second, we are not aware of any such remarks made by Shri Banerjee, in the Pensioners' Meet.

Comment: Dear Sujoy,
We again request you to kindly refrain from making such pessimistic comments and uncharitable and incorrect remarks about the role of Associations and Federation of Pensioners. If the collective case before the same bench of Delhi High Court, which decided recently in favour of the single pensioner, is decided in our favour, pensioners of all Bipartites, but mainly those of 7th Bipartite will gain, even though belatedly.

R.Parthasarathy wrote at 19-04-2015 5:11 am:

 7th Bipartite Pensioners
In case 2353 of 2014 at Delhi HC, Mr.Jaipurar (Jharkand) , SBI Lawyer conceded that the Bank has to revise his pension, taking into account the 12th month pay for April 1998 as the one revised as per 7th Bipartite settlement.He will be paid arrears from the date of retirement. Now all the 7th Bipartite pensioners of SBI can expect a similar revision and settlement of the long pending issue of being paid pension on the basis of 1993 pay. Mr.Jaipurar dropped his challenge of Section 23(2) of Pension regulations and got the verdict. We request the SBI Pen Federation also to drop all other demands in their case except a plain revision of the pension on the basis of 7th bipartite pay on 50/40 basis and expedite judgement. All will get the benefit even though for the high end pensioners(who will be a very few) there will be a marginal loss due to 50/40 basis. We expect the Federation to be prudent. We hope that the Bank will at least now stop harassing the 7th bipartite pensioners.

One have to submit the Form 15H/15G only that branch where one have the Deposit, because as under:-
1. Every deposit having customer I.D., which only that branch can excess.
2. Every branch has to file the return to Income Tax Deptt with detail of Tax deducted on deposit(s) and if not deducted than one copy of Form 15H/G are to submit duly singed by the depositor with return.
3. One have to submit the Form 15H/G duly singed by the depositor in duplicate, one for branch record another for Income Tax Deptt, so one cannot submit the Form on line.

So it is better to have all the deposit in one branch or nearby branches, as all one deposit in single branch have one customer I.D. and under one I.D. only one Form to be submit in duplicate.

Now, I think your doubt is clear.

It is therefore necessary to change our prayer accordingly. Our Advocates filed an application to change the prayers. This application was listed on 8th April 2015.

Sir, medical facility is being given only to those retired at the age of 60 yrs. of age. What is the wrong with the other pensioners who were not retired at 60 yrs.. In my opinion only 1st category pensioners are the real pensioners and not the other and as suc only the 1st category pensioners have the right to live long because 2nd category pensioners have no right to live and will die early in the absence of non medical treatment because they do'nt have resources for costly treatment in case of serous illness.therefore, my submission are to look into it and treat all the pensioners at par , no discremation, whatsoever be the reason to alive them with 1st category pensioners to provide them the medical facility, if the Association is of Pensioners only ant not of the only retired persons of 60 yrs. of age because they are also depend on the pension. With the hope you will look into at on the huminataron ground, Thanks.
 
Comment: Dear Ravindra,

You are absolutely right that all pensioners should be given the option to avail of medical facilities, irrespective of whether they retired prior to or after attaining the age of 60 years.
Our Associations and also our Federation is continuing to voice this demand very strongly. But till such time, it is made uniformly available to all pensioners, you may avail of Dispensary facilities, and also diagnostic tests, for yourself and your spouse, without any cost. This is not dependant upon your being a member of REMBS or not.

 Loan against Pension - concessinal rate of interest for sbi pensioners
The pension loan for sbi pensioners is on par with the central/ state govt. pensioners by charging the same rate of interest for sbi pensioners too. Though sbi pensioners voiced for the concessinary rate of interest nothing been fruitful so far. Recently Indian Overseas Bank revised the pension loan and has given 1% lesser rate of concession for IOB pensioners than that of central / state govt. pensioners. Our Federation must take this matter with our Corporate Ofiice and get at least this 1% less concessional rate of interest for SBI pensioners too.

Dear learned friend,

As people living in India, the largest democracy in the world, let me ask you one question. The salary and allowances of memb ers of both the houses of parliamant and state legislalture can be recvised within fraction of a second, what is the need on the part of a sltupid government to delay revision of our pension using their commonsence. We must prevail on our elected representatives to treat us with decency and decor.

If they can increase their remuneration whenever they want, they have got a bounden duty to consider the case of people like us who have spend the best 30/40 years of their life for the bank and custromers.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Iyer,

We fully share your anger and frustration resulting from such situations. Even Govt. employees do not have to agitate to get fantastic pensions, with automatic updations. But as civilized people, we have to adopt civilized methods to realize our just demands. Many pensioners are dying and still the Govt remains blind and deaf. We have no option but to carry on our fight.

 AGM with PENSIONER MEET
How to organize pensioner meet along with AGM of the district unit. What are the parameters for reimbursement from Bank ? Any circular instructions and claim forms have been prescribed by the Bank ?
 
Comment: Dear Suresh,
Corporate Centre's instruction to all Circles, stipulates that Pensioners' Meets should be conducted by Branches or cluster of branches having 50 or more pensioners (and family pensioners), twice in a year. No specific ceiling has been imposed on the expenses. But we can persuade the local bank management, that our Association members will do the running around and contacting the pensioners, and ensure their presence. The bank will have to do nothing but issue the notice and incur the expenses, which will include cost of refreshment packets, etc.
It will be convenient for us to organize this Pensioners; Meet in the first half on a Sunday, or the first hour on Sat afternoon. The second part of the event can be our Association's General meeting, This is the practice adopted by us in Bengal Circle. In this way, our General Meeting will not incur any additional expense.

 CONGRATS
I heartily congratulate Shri R.N.Banerjee for being elected as the President of the Federation. He deserved this honour. I also congratulate the Bengal Circle for all the records broken by them. I sincerely feel that theses achievements were possible only due to their hard work and sincere devotion to the cause of the Bank`s Pensioners, not only of Bengal Circle but from all over India. Their website is the most updated containing all the required information. Their collective responsibility / leadership qualities and tremendous team work is amply visible here. May God bless all of them abundantly with good health and happiness.
 
Comment: Dear Menino,
Please keep encouraging us. Also do not forget to criticize when you feel like doing so. Only, then, we can improve.

 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.

 100% DA merger - Pre Nov. 2002 retirees
Instead of speculating, can't our Assocn. seek actual status on the subject from the Bank ? This is a burning issue for our category of pensioners.

Now it is almost open secret that iba considers sbi pensioner is outside the act and hence 100 da is not applicable to us. It is learnt some groups is filig writ aagainst iba letter stasting that sbi is outside the act. Funnier part is that sbi has decided to sanctyion pension loan for pensioners subject to the condition that the loan should be paid before pensioners attain tha age of77. But alarming npa. there is limit to our patience and relying on ufbu. arise awake before the last pre 2002 sbi pensioner breaths his last.
