This one is the concluding post of the current series as Part 7 where the author, KR Saini, contends that the whole problem emanates more from the quarters of Government of India with a tilt towards desisting from issuing concrete directions affirmatively in favour of the aggrieved pensioners in State Bank of India on the face of the malady that the issue is pending for as long as 28 years in different galleries. The current series closes with this post but the author has to continue with his brief on the issue as usual. The contents of his serial as Part 7 are given below:
I HAVE BEEN WRITING ON THE PENSION RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR THE LAST SIX DAYS FROM 20.08.2015 AND FROM THESE RULES AND REGULATIONS ,IT HAS BEEN OBSERVED THAT STATE BANK HAS NO POWERS TO ENHANCE THE PENSION OF ITS EMPLOYEES WITHOUT THE APPROVAL/SANCTION OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT AND OUR PENSION ISSUES REMAIN UNRESOLVED DUE TO ADAMANT STAND BEING ADOPTED BY THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT. OUR PENSIONERS’ FEDERATION HAS BEEN MAKING ITS APPEAL TO THE GOVERNMENT ENTREATING FOR RECONSIDERING AND REVIEWING ITS ADAMANT STAND.
THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE EXISTING POLICY ON BANK’S PENSION.THE FEDERATION OF S.B.I PENSIONERS HAS BEEN RUNNING FROM PILLAR TO POST FOR THE LAST 28 YEARS FOR JUSTICE.
WE ARE DEMANDING EQUITY,FAIR PLAY AND NATURAL JUSTICE IN THE WHOLE SYSTEM. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE POLICY OF THE GOVERNMENT IN REGARD TO THE PENSIONERS OF STATE BANKOF INDIA? IT HARDLY REFLECTS AN ENLIGHTENMENT DIFINITION OF THE PENSION SCHEME. THERE IS NO SOCIO-ECNOMIC JUSTICE BUT HUMILATION ALL THE WAY FOR THOSE WHO (OLD PENSIONERS) ONCE CEASELESSLY TOILED AND GAVE THEIR BEST TO THE SYSTEM. WE WANT JUSICE AND DIGNITY ONLY.
IT APPEARS THAT THERE ARE ONLY TWO OPTIONS TO RESOLVE OUR PENSION ISSUES.ONE IS IF GOVERNMENT OF INDIA APPROVE/SANCTION THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF STATE VBANK OF INDIA OR THE APEX COURT(SUPREME COURT OF INDIA) WILL GIVE VERDICT IN FAVOUR OF S.B.I PENSIONERS.
