Thanks for your post. Advices of revision of Family Pension for all retirees from Nov 1997 onwards, have already been sent by the respective PPG Deptts. Exceptions are those instances where revision is reducing the Family Pension. Some other advices may not have reached the recorded addresses. They should contact PPG Deptt and the Association, for help.

 Pensioners and PF number
Mr.P.C.Mudi-your post of the 7th.April 2014 may be well meant but quite impractical,in my opinion.When pension account is opened it is mainly at the nearest branch on retirement residence but there can always be a change of residence subsequently,for various reasons,and subsequent deposits may be necessitated for whatever reason, in which case the new deposit account may be opened at the then nearest Branch which is not the pension paying Branch.Thus quoting the PF number at the Non-pension Branch should not be difficult.The Bank may ask for it for several reasons particularly about the person being a SBI pensioner.Carry your SBI pensioners ID with you at all times which would also have the PF number.Sujoy Ghosh

 Treating Pensioners as Staff
Mr P C Mudi

A pensioner served the Bank for 35-40 years, transfd more than 2 dozen times. First manual, Bank Master, then CBS. Implications of multiplicity of system changes and transfers impacted savings a/cs. Bank issued STDR with Staff status printed on it, should hv ensured prior linking. Law and practice require continuity with same status. How come suddently with these instrctions when they retired, scattered all over the globe. Moreover all the data available with the Bank, Bank can link PF No with a/cs as it may deem. Pensioners being on the last leg of their lives, have no role in it except providing information where required. 'One time trouble' is not relevent for them. These are short to medium term deposits and may be withdrawn as they need. Branches got their own priorities, do not pay much heed to pensioners.

 
Comment: Dear Mr Nayyar,
Kindly appreciate the reality. Whether it is wrongful stoppage of pension because of non uploading of submitted life certificates or non application of staff rates because of non linking of PF No, Bank is responsible, but so are we. Organisationally we may demand that the Bank ensures this. But individually, we should not fight shy of extending our cooperation.

  PF number for staff rate against TDR
Mr.Ghosh & Mr.Nayar ,

To meet the demand/requirements of the Bank, you may think of concentrating all the accounts at the pension paying branch to eliminate any possibility of being treated non-staff and thereby loosing preferential rate of interest on such deposits. One time trouble will take care of all future changes , if any, in the future.

Your suggestion is valid and helpful. Thanx a lot.

Comment: Dear Sujoy,
You are right in trying to reason out the causes of this situation. Its in our own interest that we must ensure that PF No is linked to our accounts and we are not deprived of higher staff rates as also Senior citizen rates.

I fully support the views which has been put by mr. Nayar as he mentioned every thing is correct. Once The account is opened as staff account with the identity of P F No. why bank is insisting to provide the details like P F no. /Pan card No, etc. It is harassment to old age pensioners.
as Mr.nayar stated in his post all the information is available with PPG department.
 
Comment: Dear Mr. Thakare,
We share your concern and anxiety over the issue. But if the Bank is trying to pass on the responsibility to pensioners, we have to tackle it organizationally. Where however, we ourselves have not furnished some important data, while opening the account, we should do it urgently in our own interest.

 Treating Pensioners as Staff
Dear Sir

The Bank reduced additional intt given to Sr Citizens from 0.5 to 0.25%. Recently Bank instructed that unless PF No is linked to Deposit a/cs before 1.2.2014, Staff benefit will not be given. Bank got all the details, Bank may link PF No to Deposit a/cs of pensioners. What role Pensioner got in it except giving needed information. Pensioners r holding Deposits marked as Staff, Bk converts them to public. When we retired invariably we had overdrafts in Current a/cs. Now Bank is not changing pension a/cs from Current to SB, for the reason, it will be done at Kolkata and other problems. ATM charges and ATM decline .. charges are debited to pensioners' a/cs due to system fault & not refunded by the Bank. All these, inflict insult apart from financial loss to pensioners. Matter may be taken up at bipartite forum for resolution.

All of you may have read the news item in today's news papers-The Telegraph and The Times of India-1st.April 2014 of Kolkata Edition,elsewhere as well I am sure, about the pension parity of the judges.Lawyers who joined the Bench have been granted pension parity even though they may not have put in full service as Judges.This evidently has taken care of discrimination amongst the Judges.But where we have put in full period of service we have been severely discriminated against,specially the 7th.BPs the Sixth BPs and the 5th.BPS.whereas the 8th.BPs onwards will get much higher pension and consequent DA relief.The Pensioners federation may on this very ground of discrimination place an affidavit/appropriate petition in our pending case at Delhi High Court due on the 17th.April 2014.Can I get a response from the PenFed?Sujoy Ghosh
 
Comment: Dear Sujoy,
Thanks for your post. The case transferred to Delhi High Court seeks basically only one relief : grant of basic pension @ 50% of last average basic salary. The issue of updation n same rank same pay or pension, will have to be tackled separately. Also 30% FP for all.

Dear Mr Sujoy Ghosh,

1. Well, sir, this is what i had read on one of the web pages when i surfed for pension rules of sbi.

2. What i was trying to suggest is that if N.P.S was introduced in 2004 and this strike featured later in 2006 and the matter of pension was resolved then could it not have been possible for the active Fed. to have an hindsight and have had such privileges extended to the past retirees too? Well, i do not have much to add as i was just a petty award staff member and i had though that my future would be taken care of by my respected trade union leaders. I hope that before I die the bank and the G.o.I. does concur to raise the desolate living standards of pensioners like me whose pension has been pegged at Rs. 3250 basis pension per month.

 Pension updation
In the RBI Pesnsioners' website, the below mentioned information is found:

Quote:As per the circular issued on 19th March 2014 by UFRBOE, they conveyed their unacceptability to Bank about the M/o finance’s proposals to the Bank on updating the Pension.
the proposals are:
i ) updation will be granted once in every 10 years,
(ii) pension will be calculated on basic pay and “grade pay” without other pay components, as of now;
(iii) all perks will be rationalised“,
(iv) wage revisions’will take place once in 10 years, instead of the existing 5 years.
There was no mention of fresh pension option in the proposalsUnited forum had talks with DG(KCC), CGM and DGM of HRMD, and ED Shri Gandhi.
According to the circular ,the pension issue is comprising of updation of pension and fresh pension option and not frequency of wage revision / perks, which relates primarily to the banking sector and flows from various tribunals / arbitration awards and bipartite settlements as per lD Act;
Government‘s proposals in this regard are beyond their jurisdiction and is ‘unacceptable’.
“We have been demanding improvement of pension and not reduction thereof. We emphasized that updation of pension every 10 years will create many anomalies and differential treatments.”

“United Forum will react strongly through intensive agitations if interest of employees and retirees are adversely affected in the name of improvements” it is stated in the circular.
They also urged on the Bank to pursue the matter further with the Govt.
Unquote. We should be happy that that the topic of pension updation is getting more and more prominent. We have to remember that Mr.C.H.Venkatachalam has also said that the pensioners' demands will figure in the X Bipartite settlement talks.:-

I have earlier proposed that the system of reimbursement of 1% p.a should made on the basis of "DECLARATION BY THE PENSIONER" on the lines of award-staff annual payment of medical allowance p.a . It is declared truth that domiciliary treatment-expenses invariably exceeds that amount of 1% p.a.The senior citizen cum pensioners should get relief of moving pillar to post to get reimbursement from the Bank IN TOKEN OF THE PENSIONERS PAST CONTRIBUTION TO SBI.

Please refer to our reply to Mr Vaid's query. The bill has to be submitted to the pension paying branch, which forwards it to the CM(HR) of the respective ZO. The bill is scrutinised and sent to the MO, who passes it. The payment is effected at ZO itself. The pensioner does not have to run from pillar to post.

Dear Mr Suzhou Ghosh,

1. There is a clause in such mention of the news about the strike in year 2006 which is quoted = up-gradation of basic pension of all past retirees taking into account the current merger of index at 2,288 points' does qualify not only the beneficiaries of 8th B.P. but to all the past retirees . This clause needs to be highlighted as a legal contention that vide such 8th B.R. those past retirees now living will too derive the benefits as confirmed and ratified vide by enforcement of the amendment done in pension rules through gazette notification.

2. Why is then the bank needs to have the G.O.I. to re-sanction such privileges to past retirees when such pension policy rules have lawfully and legally amended.

3. The employes seeking V.R. under the special scheme that the bank adopted which was made effective in all the banking industry whereby the New Pension Scheme was introduced and such privilege of calculating pension as on the basis of 50 % the last salary to all those employees who has achieved fifty years of age to retiree as per the new revised set up which was kept in abeyance while making a mention of payment of pension to such VRs employees on the per-revsied pension policy rules.

3. It is high time that the bank does Revise the per-revised pension slab that was applied in case of the retirees under VRS -2001 scheme or that would amount to criminal breach of trust.

4. The message was posted to know why the agreement of such pension revision be only be deemed to applicable to 8th b.S. employees and not to all past retirees. This akin to one rank one pension.

The REMBS medical bills have to be submitted to the M.O. at Z.O. , through the Pension Paying Br, which simply forwards it to the respective CM(HR) at the ZO in question. The latter scrutinises it and sends it to the MO for passing. Thereafter payment is directly made to the pensioner, from ZO.

 7th B.P. VRS
SBI employees win battle on pension issue

Over 2 lakh employees of State Bank of India went on in an indefinite strike on April 3, 2006 on their long-standing demand of comprehensive review of the pension scheme. The strike in this largest bank of the country was total in all the 9,000 branches.

Finally, the central government conceded to the demands of the employees.

Main Demands and the Final Agreement

The main demands of striking SBI employees were – Pension at 50 per cent of the last drawn salary; commutation on par with industry; index-linked dearness allowance on pension on par with industry; and up-gradation of basic pension of all past retirees taking into account the current merger of index at 2,288 points.

According to this agreement, the fresh “cut-off” of basic pay for determining pension has been increased to Rs. 21,040 from Rs. 8,500. All employees earning a basic pay of Rs. 21,040 would get pension at 50% of that amount, while those earning above that level would get 40% for the incremental amount above Rs. 21,040 “subject to a minimum of 50% of Rs. 21,040.”

The Finance Minister's comment after the conclusion of the agreement that “the financial implications are within the financial capacity of SBI”

So, another confrontation with the government in the near future is in offing for the VRS 2001 employees too ?.

Rohit Sharma.
 
Comment: Dear Rohit,

You are right in hailing the 2006 strike. But the fact remains that over 30k 7th BP pensioners were deprived from getting 50% of their last average basic salary, as basic pension. They are still getting pension on their pre revised salary of 6th BP.

 PENSIONER'S ISSUE RAISED BY UFBU ON 13TH & 14TH MARCH 2014
Bipartite talks between IBA and UFBU held on 13th March 2014 - Pension related issues.
Bipartite talks were held between IBA and UBFU on 13th March 2014, at Mumbai. Pension related issues were also discussed in the meeting. UBFU has issued a circular regarding the bipartite talks. Contents from the UFBU circular pertaining to the pension issues are reproduced below.
Quote
On our demand for improvement in the Family Pension scheme, extension of 100% DA formula to pre-2002 pensioners, etc., IBA was considerate and agreed to work out the cost implications to enable them to take a view on these demands. To our demand on periodical updation of pension on occasions of wage revision, IBA felt that the issue has to be examined, in its entirety, looking at the cost involved, outflow, etc. On reverting to old pension scheme from NPS, IBA expressed their inability to accede to our demand but we reiterated the same.
 
Comment: Dear Priyabrata,

Thanks for ur update. The response of IBA to the pension related issues reportedly raised by UFBU, cannot be regarded as very positive. In fact, they seem evasive. We have become cynical because of what history has taught us.

I am happy to read the "COMMENT" that my contributions have not been seen as denigratory.In fact I had no intention of having such a long line of communication. I was impressed by your website and thought i will use it to vent my opinion!! In fact it was my fear that sometimes the thin web between constructive criticism and denigration could be broken if the perceptions are not understood that made me seek a one to one on emails!!!! Your website is really a great instrument of exchange and i agree should not be used in any negative way. thanks all the same for the opportunity.
ATTN MR L.R. VAID
yOU HAVE TO EXERCISE YOUR OPTION TO COMMUTE WITHIN 90 DAYS OF RETIREMENT.I DONT THINK THIS CONDITION HAS UNDERGONE ANY CHANGE. YOU CAN PLEASE CHECK.
 
Comment: Dear Antony,

Thanks for your response. We welcome criticism, but as you have rightly pointed out, a decision in this regard, is likely to be subjective. We therefore suggest that readers do not use the website for settling scores, and thereby, help in preserving the norms of decency, expected from senior citizens like us.
Please keep contributing.
