Will the SBIPABC obtain a copy of the notification and publish in your web-site.

I could not get a cooy of the same despite best search in the relative web-site and hence the request. Your kind gesture will be a relief to hundreds of thousands of us.

Comment: Dear Mr. Sharma,

You would have come to know by now, that the Delhi High Court Div Bench amendment petition was necessary to take care of the change of Pension Fund Rules into Pension Fund Regulations. The next hearing is likely to take place on 6th May, 2015.
As regards the case of Salil Ghosh (now substituted by his widow Smt Lina Ghosh), we shall update the next date of hearing as soon as we learn about it. It was not placed in the new bench, and the lawyer is wanting it to be heard in the original bench of Chief Justice and Justice Joymalya Bagchi. This has already been reported by Shri Sujoy Ghosh, who is helping with the case.

Anil K Saxena
LATEST POSITION OF W.P.1975 OF 2013

On 8th April 2015 when our case was being heard, it was pointed by our Advocates that the Bank has framed SBI Employees Pension Fund Regulation 2014 superceding SBI Pension Fund Rules 1955 with retrospective effect from 01-07-1955 and notified in the Gazette of GOI on 15-09-2014. 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. Our Advocates requested the court for early hearing of the case. Court said that they are aware of the position and posted the hearing of our Application to 6-05-2015 asking our Advocates to file our W.P with amended prayers. Our Advocates will arrange to file our revised W.P very soon.

Next date of hearing is 6th May 2015

 Medical facility
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.

 AMENDMENT TO PENSION RULES & UPDATION OF PENSION
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.

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.

Comment: Dear Arun,

It is a pleasure to welcome to you to our website, which we believe, you are visiting, for information. The demand for updation of pension (as applicable for Govt pensioners) has been voiced by our Federation, since quite some time. The IBA/Govt has reportedly responded to this issue by suggesting to UFBU during the 10th Bipartite talks, by asking whether they would agree to Bipartites at 10 year intervals (like the 10 year Pay Commissions). If this is not acceptable to the working employees, we have also demanded fresh pension fitment ( i.e. updation) for those who have crossed 70 years or 80 years of age, as they have already completed one or two 10 year periods, after retirement.
Please keep in touch.

Dear Sirs,
I take this opportunity to place before you my humble two suggestions regarding improvement in medical facilities for your consideration.
1) Whether permission for pathological/radiological investigations through approved diagonostic centers can be arranged by pension paying branch

2) Adequate stock of medicine is not maintained at the dispensaries resulting non availability of medicines at the required time.
In view of the above please look into the matter which will be of immense help for the poor pensioners.

Comment: Dear Probir,

Thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately, the first one, regarding the involvement of pension paying branch for diagnostic tests, would not be feasible, according to current norms of prescribing such tests through the Medical Officers of Dispensaries. As regards the second suggestion, Corporate Centre has, on consistent demands of our Federation, recently instructed all Circle CGMs that pensioners should not go back from Dispensaries without medicines, and budgets should not come in the way. We are also pursuing the matter at the LHO level.

 100 % DA neutralization.
I doubt very much the approval aspect itself circulating amongst various levels. If Govt has conveyed the approval UFBU and other Staff Fedns would now be crying in full throat of their achievement in getting the 100% DA for all retired before 2002. Therefore thier keeping silent on the subject gives rise to suspicion. May be the approval with strings attached detrimental to the interests of the pensioners. May be regarding the effective date of da merger-either from 2005 ie the last date on which the merger has taken place -or from the date of implementation of the 10th BP aggrement when the DA merger is going to take place for all the working staff. Making a ststement is giving a commitment. Updation of pension it will remain a dream as for as the pensioners of the banking industry are concerned. They can examine updation of pension every 10 years and maximum a retiree may get twice updation of pension if he lives for more than 80 years. Compilation of statistics on the average life expectancy of retiree pensioners will throw some light on this. Between 70 to 80% of the retirees will leave for hevenly abode beofore reaching 80 years. The Govt/IBA have to be pressurised and convinced on this aspect for, if we do not get updation now you can never get it for ever. The talks on pension issues do not seem to have yet commenced. Still there is time.

 Pension revision
There are 03 basic issues for the 7th bipartite pensioners of SBI- revision of pension on the basis of the last drawn basic pay instead of the 1993 pay, graded neutralisation of DA for all pre-2002 pensioners and pension upgrading by merger of DA points up to 4440 as done in the case of the working employees. If the UFBU gets the merger(last issue) okayed, it will bring improvements in the range of Rs.7000 to 8000 or more app. to all pensioners.In the case of settlement of the first two issues, it is highly doubtful to get the benefits with retrospective effect. The benefit will be Rs.1000 to Rs.4000 app. Also, it will not be broad based and will not help pensioners in the lower pension brackets. The preferable goal is the merger of DA points at 4440 with effect from 1.11.2012(the Xth bipartite settlement date).

Dear Sir,

In my last message I made a mistake (what) before the word (should) is a mistake. Bear with me.

Dear Sir,

Why the DA of 100% neutralization What should be released only after the 10th Bipartite settlement? What is the link?What about the updation of pension? It appears no union is talking about it after the 23rd BP settlement.

I am unable to understand why UFBU,the other Working Staff Fedns are reluctant to furnish the details of the Neutralization of DA to pre 2002 bank retirees as approved by the Govt. What is in store for us are we not entitled to know? If IBA has got the approval they should have forwarded the details to all the PSU Bank Managements and to our Bank Management as well. I note absolute silence at all levels . What is really happening ? Can U throw some light on this.

 Mr. B.S.Chahal's query
Dear Mr. Chahal,
At present the pre-2002 November retirees are getting DA on slab basis whereas those who retired afterwards get DA with a 100 percent neutralisation basis. In case 100 percent neutralisation is allowed for us, we will get our basic pension plus DA @ 404.60 percent as gross pension.

 100% D.A.neutrilisation to pre retired employees 2002
Sir I have also heard that Govt.has approved theDA to retired employees of the above category but the payment thereof is linked with finalisation of 10 BPS.Please let me know the total monthly benefit an indivitual employee may get and the date of implementation.Thanks and sorry for the trouble.Great regards for your efforts.
 
Comment: Dear Mr. Chahal,

As you are aware, the pensioners who had retired prior to 1.11.2002, do not still get 100% Dearness Relief neutralization, and thus suffer financially. We feel that this issue will get solved after the implementation of 10th Bipartite Settlement. We shall upload correct news at the appropriate time.

 5th & 6th bipartite retireesa.
Dear Friend,

There was a news that the Central Board of the State Bank of India had passed a resolution for some marginal improvement in the pension payable to the 5thg and 6th bipartite retirees and sent the same to the Govt of India for favour of their approval. The proposal, if approved by GOI, would benefit many pensioners with an increase in their emoluments with effect from 01.03.1999. If you have heard or have gathered any further developments in the matter, kindly publish it in these valued columnsfor the benefits of many elders like me.
 
Comment: Dear Mr. Iyer,

We shall definitely upload news on this front, once we get confirmation about the authenticity of such news.

 DA neutrlization for pre 2002 retirees.
Sirs there are news that the Govt has since cleared DA neutralization for the pre 2002 retirees. Can you confirm and furnish other relevant information relating to the same.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Subramanian,

We too have this unofficial information with us. But unless we get a confirmed news, we cannot upload on this website. It is likely that the implementation of 100 % neutralization of DR which will benefit all pre 2002 pensioners, will be made after 10th Bipartite implementation.

 Pension slips
Has the access to the CPPC site by individuals been stopped?How do we download the monthly pension slip? The pension slip was earlier being e-mailed.That also seems to have been discontinued.Any information on these?Sujoy Ghosh
 
Comment: Dear Sujoy,

You can register yourself as a pensioner, (if not already registered), in the special portal for pensioners, at www.sbi.co.in/sbipension/user.htm/ You can not only view or download your pension slip, you can also input your investments for taxation purpose. The portal has recently been improved by providing access to e circulars and various necessary forms, etc.
