Now that the new government led by Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister of the country is fully in the saddle, there is every expectation that the pensioners all over the country, more so in State Bank of India, shall be duly heard with their grievances properly redressed. Pension is the portfolio which is now supposedly held by the new Prime Minister himself and all the pensioners are looking to him with a fond hope of peremptory decisions in the matter. It’s no secret that the earlier Finance Minister P. Chidambaram was highly prejudiced against State Bank of India and its pensioners too. Now there is the desired change and Arun Jaitly has replaced him. Being pragmatic and quite judicious a person he can be well expected to do justice to the pensioners. This is a stage when pensioners themselves and the organisations connected with them are to launch a massive campaign directed to securing necessary justice. The factor that Pension fund of State Bank itself is rich enough to meet the demands coupled with its recent signs of financial improvements adequately permitting enhancement of pension benefits is the one that counts most. Moreover, remedy to improve pension also lies in removal of grave anomalies pending decision for much longer a time. It’s high time for retiree pensioners and their associations/federation to assertively exert at their best to secure what is most legitimately long overdue to them.
