Pension issues in SBI–an extract from Facebook: Source> CM Kapoor



images (10)The following is an extract from facebook provided to me by a bosom friend of mine C. M. Kapoor, a stalwart in banking arena and trade union movement. The extract so appended is self explanatory and warrants to be gone through its contents thoroughly. The pensioners, the retirees and the readers in general are called upon to strictly follow the last paragraph marked ## and see that the relative message reaches maximum possible number of people from general awareness angle. The fact that a galaxy of as  many as 21 advocates of Supreme Court of India have readily sponsored their services to the cause of pensioners free of cost is most important a lead and deserves applause as an acknowledgemnt. Let us all be sincerely thankful to them.

OROP.. LEGAL HELP..

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE IN RETIRED BANKERS GOOGLE BLOG
Dear friends,
It is surprising that a land mark judgement delivered by the Supreme Court of India on 01 07 2015, Civil Appeal no. 1123 of 2015 has gone unnoticed and except for a brief letter from Shri S R Sen Gupta to IBA, no other union has taken any steps. The salient features of the judgement:
1. The bench has authoritatively ruled that Pension is a right and the payment of it does not depend upon the discretion of the Government. Pension is governed by rules and a Government Servant coming within those rules is entitled to claim pension.
2.The judgement has recognised that the revision of pension and revision of pay scales are INSEPARABLE.
3.The bench has reiterated that on revision the Basic pension cannot be less than 50% of the Basic Pension in the minimum of the Pay Band in the revised scale corresponding to the pre-revised scale.
4.The government CANNOT take a plea of financial burden to deny legitimate dues of the pensioners.
5.The Government SHOULD AVOID unwarranted litigation and not to encourage any litigation for the sake of litigation.
6. When pension is upheld to be a right and NOT A BOUNTY, as a corollary to the averment that revision of pension and revision of pay scales are INSEPARABLE, upgradation of pension is also a RIGHT AND NOT A BOUNTY.
THE JUDGEMENT IS BASED ON THE DECISION ON D S NAKARA CASE.
The above details are available in the latest issue of Canara Bank Retired Officer’s Association Circular no 3/2016 dated 1st August 2015.
The judgement is very clear and I wonder how no one has noticed the important aspects and why no one has taken up the matter with the IBA/Govt.
Why no one has reacted to the judgement is surprising and perplexing.
While agitation is on why can’t we take recourse to court also as Supreme Court advocates are offering their services. One ruling by SC that govt can’t deny pension for lack of funds regarding OROP every year and VRS case
Dear Citizens
##Forward this msg to a minimum of twenty people on your contact list; and in turn ask each of them to do likewise.
In three days, most people in India will have this message.
This is one idea that really should be passed around.
For information of all.

  1. It is surprising that SBI PENSIONER ASSNS of different circles and SBI PESIONERS FEDERATION are sitting silent over this very important order.

  2. I AM OF THE OPINION THAT OUR PENSIONERS’ FED. SHOULD SERIOUSLY THINK OVER AND DECIDE TO FILE SPECIAL PETETION FOR REMOVAL OF THE ANAMOLIES OF SBI PENSIONERS WITH THE HELP OF THE SUPREME COURT ADVOCATES WHO HAVE OFFERED THEIR SERVICES WITHOUT CHARGING ANY FEES, FOR THE REASON THAT PENSIONERS IN THE AGE GROUP OF 70 TO 85 YEARS ARE FACING THE INJUSTICE SINCE THE LAST 15 YEARS AND THE ONLY HOPE OF THE DELHI HIGH COURT JUDGEMENT-IT IS CONTINUED TO BE INORDINATELY DELAYED WITH THE INTERVENTION OF THE GOI BY APPLYING DIFFERENT TACTICS AS WAS DONE BY THEM IN THE SUPREME COURT ALSO, WHEN THE JUDGEMENT WAS LIKELY TO BE DELIVERED THEREAT AND THEY MANAGED TO TRANSFER OUR CASE TO THE DHC.

  3. I had also got this message on our WhatsApp Group, of which CM Kapoor is a member. I wonder when some learned Supreme Court Advocates are voluntarily offering to take this case that too free of charge, why it is not being given to them. Who is the authority to do so?
    Meanwhile, what I could is i have forwardef this msg to all my contacts concerned with this issue with the request to forward it to their concerned friends.
    This is a good opportunity. We must take benefit of it.
