Pension issues in SBI -Justice delayed is justice denied: (Part 1)



Image result for Indian pensionerLike cries in the vacuum, like talking to the authorities concerned with deaf ears, like bubbles scrambling in a river for their survival, the pensioners in State Bank of India are disparately gasping for some relief that is all the times denied to them both by SBI management and the Government of India. Where else they have to go? KR Saini has been voicing the concern through his comments and write-ups in this Blog which too failed to elicit any response followed by a fresh Petition to the President of India  besides the one that was raised earlier by me in this blog. KR Saini is toiling hardest possible to overcome the hurdles by regularly writing on the issue through this blog. His voice has to be heard some day in which relation my beloved readers are required to keep their courage and patience till success emerges. This blog is releasing a new series of write-ups from him one by one for the knowledge and information of readers, the pensioners. The first one of this series is quoted below:

Keshav Rai SainiWHY PENSION MATTERS ARE REQUIRED THE APPROVAL/SANCTION OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT. STATE BANK OF INDIA ACT 1955. SECTION 50–POWER OF CENTRAL BOARD TO MAKE REGULATIONS–(1) THE CENTRAL BOARD MAY,AFTER CONSULTATION WITH THE RESERVE BANK OF INDIA WITH THE PREVIOUS SANCTION OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT 1(BY NOTIFICATION IN THE OFFICIAL GAZETTE) MAKE REGULATIONS/NOT IN CONSISTENT WITH THE ACT AND THE RULES MADE THERE UNDER,TO PROVIDE FOR ALL MATTERS FOR WHICH PROVISION IS EXPEDIENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF GIVING EFFECT TO THE PROVISIONS OF THIS ACT. 50(2)(4)EVERY REGULATION SHALL AS SOON AS MAY BE AFTER IT IS MADE UNDER THIS ACT BYTHE CENTRAL BOARD, BE FORWARDED TO THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHALL CAUSE A COPY OF THE SAME TO BE LAID DOWN BEFORE EACH HOUSE OF THE PARLIAMENT,WHILE IT IS IN SESSION,FOR THETOTAL PERIOD OF 30 DAYS,WHICH MAY BE COMPRISED IN ONE SESSION OR IN TWO OR MORE SUCCESSIVE SESSIONS, AND, IF BEFORE THE EXPIRY OFTHE SESSION, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE SESSION OR THE SUCCESIVE SESSIONS AFORESAID BOTH HOUSES AGREE IN MAKING ANY MODIFICATION IN THE REGULATION OR BOTH THE HOUSES AGREE THAT THE REGULATION SHOULD NOT BE MADE, THEREGULATION THERE AFTER HAVE EFFECT ONLY SUCH MODIFIED FORM OR BE OF NO EFFECT,AS THECASE MAY BE SO, HOWEVER,THAT ANY SUCH MODIFICATION OFANNULMENT THE VALIDITY OF ANY ONE PREVIOUSLY DONE UNDER THAT REGULATION.

  1. Respected K.R.Saini Ji, Salute to your hardest efforts for Helpless Pensioners. But in India voices are not heard until it is converted into cries with life. So it is my utmost suggestion to strengthen Pensioners Association which is nearby Dead and immediately start Hunger Strike in from of District level Branch All over India. Please also add the adverb that when we will demand missile then we will be given some guns. So the justified demand is that All the Pensioners should be treated at par with working employees and their Pensions should be revised from Back date as per the Bipartite Agreement Made. Gratuity has been given in many Central Government Institutions w.e.f. 01-01-2006 which is not been given to us. Most terrible thing is that even after serving more than 35 years and even ready to pay about 50000 rupees SBI Management is not giving Medical Pass Book facility on the ground that VRS were taken 2 or 5 years before. At least they should allow it from the Age of 60 which is being denied. I have heard that Management is providing this Medical facility to Directors even of 2 years of service. These days Medical is the Biggest issue and biggest problem too keeping in mind of greed of Private Hospitals and Doctors and total failure of Government on this Ground. on 21st August I saw a full news coverage on Zee News channel about the suffering of Public. Hospitals has made arrangement to loot the public from each and every corner.

  2. In my opinion Constitution of India is Supreme and if some provisions of SBI Pension Fund Rules contravene the basic principles of Constitution I.e.equality and those rules are making discrimination on the basis of date of retirement then those rules should be scrapped Supreme Court has already said it that there should not be any discrimination on any count

  3. Our Bank is acting holier than thou.. If permission is sought from a body whose permission is not necessary naturally that body will be an obstacle .Paying pension as laid down by PeGovt can be informed of thension Regulation requires no bodys approval.Our Central Board is competent to decide the issue.If need be Govt could be appraised post facto.

  4. AS YOU ARE AWARE THAT CENTRAL BOARD CAN MAKE REGULATIONS WITH THE CONSULTATION OF RBI AND WITH THE PREVIOUS SANCTION OF THE GOVERNMENT.AS SUCH ANY AMENDMENT IN ANY REGULATION IS REQIRED THE APPROVAL OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT .WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF CENTRALGOVERNMENT NO AMENDMENT IN THE PENSION CAN BE MADE.
