 PLIGHT OF THE 7TH BIPARTITE RETIREES
Respected Madam,
PLIGHT OF THE 7TH BIPARTITE RETIREES
I joined the Bank in the year 1964 and served the Bank for 37 Years. Since then I had never seen that our Bank has any time have taken any discriminatory decision, affecting its Staff. Only in the year 2000 on receiving administrative instructions from the MOF, the Bank issued instructions to its LHO’s that the Pension of all the 7th Bipartite retirees be fixed on the pre-revised salary of the 6th Bipartite retirees. Those instructions of the MOF and those of the Bank don’t have the force of Law and are in violation of the SBI Employees Pension Fund Rules, 1955 (now known as SBI Pension Fund Regulations-2014) and in violation of the provisions of the SBI Act. The provisions of the art. 300 of the Constitution of India are also violated by issuing the aforesaid unconstitutional instructions.
2. In terms of the SBI Act our Central Board is fully empowered to take decisions as to the payment of pensions as stipulated in the Act and the Regulations and the Pension Fund Rules. The Act does not empower the C.G./MOF in that behalf. The Act also does not empower the C. G./MOF to interfere in to the day today affairs of the Bank and those in respect of its staff, except only where Public interest is involved. The C.G./MOF approval is required for establishment and maintenance of the Pension Fund. By the Bank’s unnecessarily seeking approval/permission of the CG/MOF, they have assumed extra-constitutional authority and unwarrantedly interfering where they are not empowered to by the Act.
4. I hope the matter may kindly receive your personal attention and you may kindly initiate steps, if required by consulting the Bank’s Solicitors; to rectify the aforesaid mistakes done in the past, as early as possible, so that the justice is done to the Pensioners in the age group of 71 to 80 years, counting the last days of their life.

Comment: Dear Shri Agrawal,

Despite the obvious violation of Supreme Courts advice to dispose of our case within 6 months, there is no plan, according to our information, for our Federation to file any contempt of court petition before Delhi High Court. It is the considered opinion, that our main case will only get delayed further.

Dear Readers
Shri M. Gopalakrishna Iyer's writing on this site on 10-08-2015 appears to me as lopsided.Mr Ramachandra Upathyaya of Bangaluru in his email to the Chairperson of SBI on 28th June is reported to have highlighted two pertinent points.
(1) The Bank deliberately did not act on the Resolution passed by the ECCB, authorising payment of pension on the revised pay scales effective from 1.11.97/ 1.4.98 : brief details of the resolution passed were advised to the RBI vide letter # CDO/PM/16/SPL/341 dated 26.7.2000.
(2) The RBI had approved revision of existing ceiling of Rs.8500 be revised to Rs.12050/- and the admissible pension payable be revised to Rs 6025/- respectively by merging D.A up to 1684 points. In respect of those having an average pay exceeding Rs.12, 050/-, the pension payable be revised to 40% of average pay subject to a minimum of Rs 6025, vide its letter # DBOD/593/09-21-002/2000.01 dated 11/12.5.2001.
I request the knowledgeable Readers to be kind enough to consider for a minute how far it will be correct to raise a accusing finger against the GOI & RBI.With regards V MADHAVAN

 Pension Anomalies in SBI
We thank our present Chairperson of our Bank for taking up the issues of pension anomalies in SBI strongly with the Government. The following points are interesting;
1. The government says in its letter dated 31.3.15 that the Bank has to comply with the extant pension regulations and that it has the necessary approval for such compliance.
2. SBI again writes to the government on 27.4.15 that the realignment of the pension is a move towards compliance. It also confirms that the extant instructions are strictly followed when the realignment takes place.
When the Bank already has Government approval for compliance there is no hindrance to the Bank for release of orders. The, where is the hitch? Thousands of old pensioners are being simply harassed.

You are absolutely right in stating that for pensioners in our bank, it has been a history of deprivation and discrimination.

 PLIGHT OF SBI PENSIONERS
Dear Friends,

As all of you know, it is the adamant stand of the officials of the Ministry of Finance, Govt of India and the blind support given to the GOI by Reserve Bank of India that delays the rectification of our pension fixation anomalies. The Chairman has written to MOF for re-fixation of pension. The MOS Finance has also assured our leaders sympathetic consideration of our case. If the arrogant
bureaucrats in the MOF are misguiding the Minister and paying a deaf year to the recommendation of our Chairman, the only way to come out of this fix is to approach Supreme Court of India with a request to pass an order divesting the RBI and GOI of their powers to intervene in any matter connected with SBI Pension Fund. Contribution to SBI Pension Fund is made solely by SBI. RBI and GOI have not contributed even a single paisa. Our bureaucrats are blindly following the idiotic policies and draconian rules of the British Regime. These "EUROPEANS MADE IN INDIA' are putting spokes in the finalisation of our reasonable demands.

2. I know this is not the web site of Penfed; but when when many ordinary members are reading the opinions presented in it the office-bearers of the circle associations and Federation cannot ignore their views because it is VOX POPULI.

2. Our leaders should understand that it is high time to break all the chains and rise to the occasion and relieve SBI pensioners from the clutches of GOI and RBi. When other PSBs are free to take decision, why and how is it that the biggest bank is handcuffed.

Yours faithfully,

M. Gopalakrishna Iyer.

Even the Defence Personnel will get their revised Pension ONE RANK ONE PENSION (OROP). The PM is likely to announce its implementation on 15th Aug. Congratulations.

I am very grateful to Mr.Gopalakrishnan ,Mr.Mani and and all the colleague who are contributing something on this website.I am also grateful to our Fed.representative who created this website so that we can interact with each other.Now my suggestion is that a committee at Delhi and Mumbaii should be formed from the local unit of the retirees to follow up our case at Delhi high court, GOI and at Central office respectively.These committees should be made responsible to upload the developments on day today basis,so that our members get uptodate informations of our cases.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Chahal,

First, this website is that of the Bengal Circle Association, and not that of the Federation.
Second, the case is being regularly followed up by Fed representative residing at New Delhi, apart from regular consultation with the counsels by other office bearers of the Federation.
Third, we update relevant news on this website, on the basis of authentic information received by us from time to time.
