Letter received from Shri R K Pathak , our google group member , on the above subject is reproduced below.
Please recall your attention to my earlier communication to group dated 25/07/2015, wherein I have forwarded the copy of Appeal made to Chief Justice of SCI by Shri. S Ramchandran, former GM of BOB regarding updation of Pension & 100% DA neutralization , with prayer as under:-
" It is in view of the facts referred at points 1-10 above and average litigation span of ten years & short of life at our disposal, specifically of Mr. S G Lele (87 years), Mr. C M Bhat (86 years) and other signatories of 80+years, we earnestly pray for your intervention and this Petition may kindly be treated as a Suo-Moto Writ Petition on the appellate side of the Honorable Supreme Court
Therefore for the points 1 to 10 above, we pray your lordship may be pleased to call for
1. the records and minutes of wage revision discussions in which our issues were discussed and finally taken the stand as mentioned in Record Note of Discussion dated 25.05.2015.
2. to investigate into the cost of updation of pension, improvement in family pension and 100% DA neutralization by Actuarials defined in Pension Regulations 1995.
3. Upon investigation report from actuarials, to order to the concerned banks RBI and GOI, to arrive at the decision on the demands of the retirees.
For the kind response and acts of your Lordship, we all, shall always remain obliged, as duty bound. ".[ Copy attached for ready reference]
I am glad to inform that Honorable SC has registered the said appeal as "Grievance" / Petition today on 19/09/2016 with DIARY No. 39861 of 2016 " .
It is worthwhile to mention that I was actively associated with this task and Mr. S. Ramchandran, former GM of BOB at the age of 76 was moving to have the signatures of Senior Citizens on the Appeal.
In fact this task has to be attended by the " APEX RETIREE ORGANISATIONS OF PENSIONERS " BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE RESPONSE WAS NOT ENCOURAGING FOR REASON UNKNOWN.
At least NOW , the biggest retiree organisation and AIBPARC will coordinate on this issue to take this matter forward.
