Welcome

 

            ASSESSMENT OF NEW SYSTEM OF PENSION PAYMENT THROUGH CAO. 

WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF THE NEW SYSTEM OF PENSION PAYMENT IN SBI, THROUGH CENTRAL ACCOUNTS OFFICE, WITH EFFECT FROM MAY, 2012, WE HAVE RECEIVED INFORMATION FROM VARIOUS CIRCLES ABOUT NON PAYMENT OF PENSION.  THE MATTER HAS BEEN TAKEN UP STRONGLY WITH THE MANAGEMENT, AND INSTRUCTIONS ARE BEING SENT TO BRANCHES, TO PAY PENSION TO THE AFFECTED PENSIONERS, BY DEBIT TO SUSPENSE ACCOUNT.  ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO PAY PENSION TO THOSE WHO DID NOT GET IT ON 27TH MAY, 2012, WILL BE MADE ON 7TH JUNE, 2012.  

HAPPILY, FOR BENGAL CIRCLE, THE NUMBER OF SUCH PENSIONERS IS VERY SMALL.  WE ARE HOWEVER, GIVING IMPORTANCE TO THE SORRY PLIGHT IN OTHER CIRCLES TOO, AS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO THEM HAS INCREASED WITH THE SHIFTING OF THE CENTRE OF CENTRALIZED PAYMENT, TO KOLKATA.  

INTRODUCTION OF CENTRALIZED STAFF PENSION PAYMENT CELL (CSPPC).:


SOME PENSIONERS  ARE POSSIBLY NOT AWARE THAT THE HRMS PORTAL USED TILL APRIL, 2012, FOR PAYMENT OF PENSION, IS NOW BEING REPLACED BY A CENTRALIZED STAFF PENSION PAYMENT CELL, TO BE LOCATED AT CENTRAL ACCOUNTS OFFICE, KOLKATA.   AS THE HRMS PROCESS HAD STABILIZED, DESPITE SOME NAGGING PROBLEMS REGARDING ENTRY OF DATA RELATING TO LIFE CERTIFICATES, INVESTMENTS, PAN NUMBER ETC., WE ARE APPREHENSIVE THAT ONE MORE SHIFT IN THE SYSTEM, IS LIKELY TO CREATE PROBLEMS FOR PENSIONERS AND FAMILY PENSIONERS. 

WITH A VIEW TO ASSESS THE CORRECT POSITION, AND ALSO TO PROTECT THE INTERESTS OF OUR PENSIONERS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, WE MET THE GENERAL MANAGER, DGM, AGM AND CMS AT CENTRAL ACCOUNTS OFFICE, ON 5TH MAY, AND DISCUSSED THE SITUATION IN DETAILS. WE REQUESTED THEM TO ENSURE THAT THE FUNCTION OF BRANCHES AND LHO, IN REGARD TO PENSION PAYMENT, WAS LEFT UNTOUCHED, SO THAT PENSIONERS COULD CONTINUE INTERACTING AT THESE CENTRES, AS IN THE PAST.  THE PLIGHT OF FAMILY PENSIONERS WAS ALSO HIGHLIGHTED, EXPLAINING THAT THEY OFTEN HAD TO WAIT INDEFINITELY TO GET THEIR FAMILY PENSION, IN THE EVENT OF DEMISE OF THEIR SPOUSE (PENSIONER).  THE METHOD OF REDRESSAL OF GRIEVANCES OF PENSIONERS WAS ALSO REQUESTED TO BE LEFT UNCHANGED, SO THAT THEY COULD GET PROMPT RELIEF.  WE WERE ASSURED BY THE GM, THAT ALTHOUGH PENSIONERS ARE UNABLE TO ACCESS THE HRMS PORTAL, THEY WILL BE GIVEN ACCESS TO A NEW PORTAL OF CSPPC, VERY SOON, AND THEY WILL NOT HAVE TO SUFFER. 

AS PENSIONERS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, WILL BE DEPENDANT ON THE PROPER FUNCTIONING OF THIS NEW CELL, THE ROLE OF OUR ASSOCIATION WILL BE VITAL, IN COORDINATING WITH ALL THE OTHER ASSOCIATIONS.  

THE NEW SYSTEM IS IN THE PROCESS OF BEING STREAMLINED AND IMPLEMENTED, AFTER HOLDING A WORKSHOP OF CENTRAL ACCOUNTS OFFICE OFFICIALS AND PPG OFFICERS FROM ALL CIRCLES, ON 9TH AND 10TH MAY, 2012. IT IS LIKELY TO BE USED FOR PENSION PAYMENTS FOR OUR PENSIONERS, FROM THE MONTH OF MAY, 2012.  

PLEASE LOOK OUT FOR FURTHER NEWS ON THIS FRONT.  

 

 

LATEST NEWS ABOUT CSPPC (UPLOADED ON 27TH JUNE, 2012)

THE CPPC PORTAL IS AT PRESENT, AVAILABLE ONLY AT THE BRANCHES WHICH PAY GOVT PENSION.  THERE, ONE SUB SITE HAS BEEN KEPT FOR CSPPC (STAFF PENSION).  THE SELECTED BRANCHES CAN GENERATE PENSION SLIPS, FEED LIFE CERTIFICATES ETC.   BUT THIS FACILITY IS NOT STILL AVAILABLE TO OTHER BRANCHES AND TO INDIVIDUAL PENSIONERS.  IT IS EXPECTED THAT SOON, SUCH FACILITIES WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE AT ALL BRANCHES AND ALSO TO INDIVIDUAL PENSIONERS, AS WAS AVAILABLE EARLIER THROUGH HRMS PORTAL. 

ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT IS THAT PENSION PAYMENT IS LIKELY TO BE MADE BY 28TH OF EVERY MONTH.   FURTHER, CHANGES IN PENSION DATA WILL NOW BE DONE (INCLUDING INTRODUCTION OF PAYMENT OF PENSION/FAMILY PENSION, ETC., UPTO 25TH OF EVERY MONTH, INSTEAD OF 20TH APPLICABLE IN THE HRMS SYSTEM.
