IBA informed that as informed earlier they are in the process of calculation of cost by the Actuaries and they have called for certain data from all the Banks. They further informed that they have received the said data from most of the banks and that once the data is received from the remaining banks, they would calculate the additional cost and will have a view on the issues.
IBA’s Medical Insurance Scheme : We brought to the notice of the IBA that the retirees are yet to be extended the reimbursement of domiciliary treatment expenses as agreed in the 10th bipartite settlement and again in the conciliation meeting held on 08.12.2015.
