SBI Pension case, a perennial deferment:


Pension case of State Bank of India pending in Supreme Court for a long time, last fixed for 09/01/2013, has again met the same fate like earlier with the next date for hearing now fixed up for 6th February’2013 (Check the date correctly as there is not much of a surprise if it could be some date in 2014). The retirees all over the country were waiting for 9th January’ 2013 impatiently with their vision glued to the Supreme Court of India at New Delhi hoping for some thing tangible to emerge but they got deluded getting slapped with another adjournment. Virtually it looks like the issue going on perennially from one date to another with no kind of a certainty in sight. As quite well known a fact it is that pensioners are quite in the wrong side of their age, many of them in their 80s, there must be some consideration on a priority footing to extend to them whatever relief is possible during their life time only. Any benefit that accrues to them posthumously has actually no meaning for them. The retirees have no option but to wait for the next date patiently undergoing most suspenseful moments.

  1. If these people were to miss payment on any loans,etc. Guess how fast the response would be? Banks are going to defer and defer, until personages are not of this world. – So sorry for negative response.

  5. It is very unfortunate that the decision on removal of the pension anomalies for SBI retirees is being extended again and again.This is a case of a perennial defferment.Three years ago,I had attended a seminal at pusa institude at Patel Nagar which presided over by the then Chief Justice of India Shri Bal krishna ji who had suggested that case of senior citizens(Bank officers are senior citizens some 70,75,80,85 years old should be decided as early as possible because of their advanced age whem big chunk of their petty pension is wiped away on medicines for heart attack,High B.P and on enlargment of prostrate and diabetes etc

  6. Sir… In recent years the Supreme Court of India has emerged as a great hope for those who have been denied justice at all forum..But in the case of SBI retirees it is very much surprising that such a frequent deferment of the case is occuring which seems quite unwarranted… It is also embarrassing that despite a retirees federation there are most vibrant federations of SBI people the position is so.. The plight of seniors in advance stage of age can not be expressed in words… On many occasions I have heard from you sir that those having no past can not have a better future… If the present position of recent past exist so long any one can easily understand the fate and future of today… I request the people following the case in Supreme Court should repeat their past with following lines….
    SINHASHAN HIL UTHE, RAJVANSHO NE BHRIKUTI TANI THI…
    BUHE BHARAT ME AAYI FIR SE NAYI JAWANI THI..

    Begging pardon sir……….

  7. The deferment in the date from 9th January to 6th feb., 2013 is the result of the finance ministers approach to deal with the state bank of india pensioners case . I remember during 8th bipartite the finance minister was the same who took over the charge from Mr Mukerji and we should not hope for the better ment., the then financeminister announced at that time that he has increased the pension of all the retirees but lator on he made it clear that the increae was given to the 8th bipartite pensioners only and he can not do more to the others. If this is the attitute of the financeminister then we the old pensioners should not think for the positive respons from the supreme court. there will be an other date on 6th february 2013. the case will not be over on 6th feb. please excuse me for the stateforwardness. .I request the retirees please bear with us . .
