 regarding medical facilities for VRS
I retired as dEPUTY MANAGER on june 2011 on VRS.I wish to know , the medical facilities available for vrs retirees, medical insurance schemes available if any. How to know about it . I am living in Chennai .
 
Comment: Dear Malathi,

We presume that you had voluntarily resigned from the Bank, in the year 2011, before attaining the age of 60 years, as there were no VRS or Exit Option schemes at the material time. In that case, you are not entitled to be a member of REMBS. You can however avail of free consultation of specialists and pathological tests through Bank's Dispensaries.
We suggest that you obtain health Insurance to cover the risks. You can get further advice from the Pensioners' Association at Chennai.

 7BPS PENSIONERS MULTI PRONGED APPROACH
My Dear Friends, I am a Chennai Circle based 7 BPS pensioner (April 2002) receiving pension through Coonoor [0828] Branch. I convey my greetings and good wishes to you. This is in connection with the comments to the post of Shri S V Mani on 30 July. The remedies apart from court cases suggested herein may not be new to the R(L)eaders. (i) Start a Mail Campaign by small manageable groups at the pension paying branch level on the lines of correspondences purported to have been addressed by Sri Ramchandra Upadhyaya, belonging to SBI as a top executive before he retired as a General Manager, to the Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Chairperson Smt Arundhathi Bhattacharya . A few copies of the correspondences down loaded by me have been attached to my mail to SBIPABC. (ii) Individual pensioners can seek correct information on the pension revision issue under Right to Information Act, 2005. Guidance of eminent persons like Shri Wajahat Habibulla, the first Chief Information Commissioner of India is available with www.rtiindia.org. The Assn Fed (iii) could identify a pensioner friendly Share Holder and voice the Grievance of Pensioners in the Share holders meet. (iv) could consider seeking a stay in the matter of profit sharing under consideration. (v) write on the letters to the editor column in the press. There may one SRCTZN friendly judge to take it as a PIL. With Regards V MADHAVAN

Comment: Dear Mr Mani,

There is no dispute on the rights of pensioners to seek justice. The moot point is what remedies apart from court cases, are available to us, when we dont get justice in 15 years, and many of us do not live to see the outcome.

 Various posts in this site
Dear all,
I find that pensioners who are regular in visiting this site are very active trade unionists having good experience in staff matters.Also they are militant in raising their voices against injustice and indifference of all concerned. Unfortunately we are all scattered in various parts of India for obvious reasons.Majority pensioners are either docile or not interested in anything of importance.This being the average pensioner"s case the circle associations are also docile always.The only remedy is the media. Let us think in those lines to gather momentum to our movement.

Please respond

P K Gopalakrishnan
 
Comment: Dear Mr Gopalakrishnan,

No path should be discarded for achieving our legitimate demands. But let us not forget that we are neither trade unions, nor can we be militant, given our age and mindsets. We have to unite, build our collective strength, and aim to negotiate directly with IBA for our demands, instead of depending on Staff and Officers' Federations. We have to continue our fight in courts too. We should also enlist the support of MPs.
But as regards your view on publicity through media, we are not very hopeful. Let us not forget that only 6% of the salaried class in our country, are pensioners. 94% are not interested in our story. Public sympathy is also not in our favour. We have to fight our own battles.

We are not averse to any means to achieve our just demands. But let us also understand that the media is not likely to be interested to help us a minority of 6% among the salaried class, who get pension.

Dear Friends,

This is with reference to the comment from the website to my post dated 28th July 2015.

2. At the very outset let me make it clear that I am also a person with trade union background right from 1969 trained by stalwarts like Shri C. Coutto, Shri T.A. Narayanan, Shri R.O.Shah, Shri R.N. Godbole etc.I have not critisised our leaders whether at the circle or federation level. If I blame the Chairman or Minister of State for
Finance for giving false hopes to our
leaders, you should not have found fault with me. They gave promised to look into our problems favourably during the first week of Kuly 2015 and even after a lapse of 25 days they have not done anything. They are unable to command the bureaucracy. They sign in the dotted lines as told by the bureaucracy. A Chairman of State Bank of India is in no way inferior to the Gpvernor of Reserve Bank of India or the Union Minister of Finance. I still reiterate that they have given false hopes without even an iota of sincerity or commitment to the genuine cause of pensioners.

3. This website is meant to air the genuine grievances of the members. If you can show me even a single SBI pensioner who is not disappointed at the attitude of the Chairman, State Bank of India, Minister of State for Finance or the Delhi High Court I shall discontinue using this precious website.

With greetings,

M. Gopalakrishna Iyer.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Iyer,

Please do not get us wrong. We are not against criticism. We are only against belittling anyone while expressing our disappointment. Federation leaders as well as Chairman and others all have their own limitations. We must not doubt their sincerity. Let us not forget this reality. But despite all these hindrances, we must never give up our struggle.

Comment: Dear Mr Kumar,
We apologise for the delay in responding. We entirely agree that there should be no discrimination or categorization among the pensioners about the facilities being made available to them. All pensioners irrespective of how they retired, are fully entitled to avail of Medical Dispensaries of the Bank (consultation of specialist doctors and pathological tests under tie up arrangement) for themselves and their spouses.
However, those who have resigned or retired before the age of 60, are either partially entitled to REMBS (VRS optees of 2001) or deprived of it (Exit optees of 2006).
Our Associations and our Federation has been constantly demanding full medical facilities for all pensioners, irrespective of the mode of their retirement.

All of us know nothing will be decided by the Court in our case 1875 during this period though Mr.Saini is updating us about our case being listed in 1A. The serial number 1A is skipped daily for the reasons not known. Our Fed/Bank Counsels are silent over the matter. I find most of the cases being heard by the honourable bench barring 1A. Our FED. leaders were satisfied audience with the Chief and their cordial meeting. I understabd that even 7th Pay Commission recommends about 40% hike in Salary for Central Govt.Staff. Is there any solution for revised pension to the 5th to 8th BS Retirees? or wait and watch .Mani
 
Comment: Dear Mr Mani,

We share your feelings of frustration at the continuing delay in the hearing of our Court case despite top listing. We can only urge the Court through our counsel, for early disposal. Beyond that, we are helpless in this disappointing situation.

Let us not dismiss cordial meetings with the Chairman, as inconsequential. We can at least expect removal of anomalies and aberrations in the pensions of earlier Bipartite, through her efforts and initiative. Other improvements can be brought about only through court orders.

We are however voicing only our Association's views, and not speaking on behalf of the Federation.

 S B I Pensioner"s Issues
Dear Sir,
I fully agree and endorse views expressed by my college Sri Gopalakrishna Iyer in his latest post on the above subject.The Judicial System in India means delaing judgements indefinitely.Take for instance Tamil Nadu CM"s disproportionate assets case.It took the court to decide after nearly 20 yrs.

Similarly our colleagues from Kerala Circle approached Supre Court for
Gratuity enhancement case way back in 2010 when Govt said that the effective date is 25th May 2010 and not 1st June 2006 as in the case of Got employees.The case was returned to High Court of Kerala for protocol reasons putting our 3 colleagues in much hardship and financial strain in their oldage.Again Kerala High Court prolonged its Judgement till Jan 2015 without any use to the petitioners.
Now they have moved full bench in High Court agin to face delay and dejection loss of time money and energy on this issue in the useless exercise.
So it is high time we become more practical.Let our leaders meet Political leadres such as Sr. O Rajagopal
other MPs MLAs etc and try to raise the issue in Parliament now in session.

Again, Kerala Circle O A General Secretary Sri. M Sreenath is retiring this month.He was also the Presidient of All India SBI Officers Federation.We may approach him also as he is a capable leader having good contacts.
Also Award Staff Leaders retiring elsewhere in the country may also be contacted.

In short by hook or crook we have to achieve our legitimate rights.In a democratic like ours any action is fair.
Wishing all success & Good luck and hoping to receive comments / suggestions

Comment: Dear Mr Gopalakrishnan,

We share your disappointment at the delay in disposal of Court cases, including that of ours. We must still fight on, as other litigants are doing in our country.

M. Gopalakrishna Iyer wrote at 28-07-2015 6:56 pm:

 5th and 6th and 7th Bipartite retirees
Dear Friends,

Our Federation leaders met our Chairman on 6th July 2015 preceded by a meeting with the Minister of State for Finance. Both the above functionaries/dignitaries promised to look into our anomalies and 'DO THE NEEDFUL'.Our leaders returned to their respective places believing the hypocrasy couched in diplomacy of these unfaithful and treacherous persons. They have made cheap fools of our leaders. Is 22 days not sufficient to correct a very minor anomaly which affects the fate of more than 35000 senior citizens, most of them at the fag end of their life.

2. Judiciary is another institution putting spokes behind our back. Our case, though figuring as the 2nd item (!-A) since re-opening of the High Court of Delhi on 29th June 2015 has not been taken up for hearing as yet. Even if judiciary issues an order in favour of a litigant our bureaucrats, who are crooked like a cork screw know how to circumvent the order by not issuing suitable orders to that effect to the concerned department/psu/psb. Nepotism, political interference and corruption are rampant in every sphere of our public life i.e., executive, legislature, defence, civil services and judiciary.

3. I think it is high time we approach the Supreme Court again expressing our anguish and disappointment in the way the Delhi High Court and Government of India are handling things. Who respects the judiciary? Only the common man does it. Others including Government Officials and even judicial officers have scant respect for the system.

Yours faithfully,

M. Gopalakrishna Iyer.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Iyer,

We share your sentiments, though we do not agree with the form of expression. What is the remedy in such a disappointing scenario ? Belittling our elected leaders and disbelieving the commitments given by functionaries of the bank ? Not trusting the courts ? After all, it was the decision of Supreme Court, which succeeded in removal of arbitrary ceilings of pension and introduced Family Pension in the bank.

Dear Friends,

What do you mean by "seniority". According to what our beloved teachers and seniors taught us it is from top to bottom. But in the case of Delhi High Court, it is from bottom to top.

2. Please refer to the cause list dated 28.07.2015 of Delhi High Court. Case No. WP(C) 4931/2005 which appeared as item No,5 has been disposed of although our case which is figuring as item No.1A has not yet been taken up for final hearing.

3. Instructions of the Supreme Court are not applicable to Delhi High Court. Rules and regulations are applicable to the common man only and tax payer and not to politicians, police and judiciary.

4. Long Live Indian Judiciary! Long Live Rule of Law!

But the SC in their order dated 27 02 2013 has not instructed or directed the DHC in handling the Writ transferred. “13. -- request the learned Chief Justice to assign the writ petition before a Bench of his choice for early disposal of the matter, at any rate within the outer limit of six months from the date of receipt of the records.” The Plaintiff chose to file amended prayers on the basis of SBI Employees' Pension Fund Regulation 2014. The ‘pleadings are complete’ position recorded in the order of SC would have undergone a drastic change. Thereafter one could not find fault with the judiciary. Revised petition may invite every other time consuming court procedure.
2. The order in WP (C) 184 of 2011 discloses that a procedure for filing Applications for early hearings obtains in the courts. The men in direct dialogue with the Advocates in WP (C) 1875 of 2013 could request the advocates to file an application for early hearing without irritating and antagonising the presiding officers. Because interested parties are more than SRCTZN. They are mostly SEPTUAGENARIANS AND OCTOGENARIANS.
3. I would suggest a multi pronged approach. Application for revision of pension and payment of interest on arrears of pension could be filed with the PPG Department. The inactive Government machinery could be flooded with Applications seeking information under the Right to Information Act 2005. The Circle Pensioners Associations could register in the structured meetings the favourable position contained in the various court orders and judgments. I may quote the favourable points from Rules Court orders etc in next part.

 7TH BPS RETIREES OF SBI.
Dear friends,
Mr Gopalakrishna Iyer's explanation/clarification-logic wise- in the pension matters are looks so simple. Next what to be done? can we request to Pensioner's Federation to take up the matter with our management? i do not think the matter so simple &it did not strike all concerned so far.

Comment: Dear Mr Rajagopalan,

You are absolutely right. The issue is apparently simple. But many complications are involved, specially the unhelpful attitude of the Govt and IAS officials.

 7TH BIPARTITE RETIREES.
IN RESPONSE TO M.GOPALAKRISHNA IYER COMMENT DATED THE 26TH JULY,2015 IT MEANS FAULT WITH THE BANK FOR ISSUING WRONG INSTRUCTIONS IN 2000 AND DUE TO THIS 7TH BIPARTITE RETIREES ARE SUFFERING.GOVERNMENT SHOULD RECTIFY THE MISTAKE IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT LOSS OF TIME.
K.R.SAINI
 
Comment: Dear Mr Saini,

Why do you think that the bank is at fault ? What did the two Federations do, while signing the 8th Bipartite Agreement, which sunk the 7th Bipartite retirees of our Bank alone ? Why is it that the Govt is so uncooperative about rectifying the glaring anomaly, for which over 30,000 pensioners of 7th bipartite are still receiving pension calculated on 6th Bipartite salary ?

 7TH BPS RETIREES OF SBI.
Dear Friends,

This is with reference to Shri K.R.Saini's post of the 25th. The irregularity in 7th BPS retirees, that they are paid pension as per 6th BPS, was a mistake committed by the then Chairman Shri G.G. Vaidya. To correct that anomaly, what is the big need to take permission/get approval of Government of India or Reserve Bank of India. It is just a matter of natural justice that a person who retires during the currency of a particular BPS is paid pension based on that BPS. Such a simple mistake is lingering on since 17 years. The Chairman, The Minister of State for Finance everybody has given a patient hearing to our Federation leaders who returned with optimism. Still nothing tangible has yet been done.

2. Secondly, retirees both pre 1-11-2002 and post 2002 are all paying the same price for grocery, vegetables, milk, travelling etc and hence it is only a matter of human sympathy that the benefit of 100% nutralisation of D.A. is extended to all pensioners alike. This facility is available to even RBI pensioners who retired before 1.11.2002.

3. Our bureaucracy is a merciless one. They misguide the political leadership. Once a file goes to them, it never sees sunlight and dies a natural death with nobody to mourn, in some hidden corner of the Central Government Secretariat.

4. Governments may change; but bureaucracy remains the same. Whether UPA or NDA, it is nothing other than OLD WINE IN NEW BOTTLE.

5. Better late than never. This is applicable to wisdom (of bureaucrats) also.

Yours faithfully,

M. Gopalakrishna Iyer.
