Minimum Pension – Ministry of Labour & Employment


Minimum Pension – Ministry of Labour & Employment

Minimum Pension

The Government has notified a minimum pension of Rs. 1000/- per month to the pensioners under Employees’ Pension Scheme (EPS), 1995 vide Notification No. G.S.R. 593 (E), dated 19th August, 2014 effective from 01.09.2014 for the year 2014-15 which is continued beyond March, 2015 without any break.

However, no proposal is under consideration of the Government at present for providing inflation-linked Dearness Allowance (DA) to pensioners of EPS, 1995. The issue of index-linking of pension by fully neutralizing inflation was considered by the Expert Committee constituted by the Government in the year 2009 for review of EPS, 1995 and the same was found not feasible in the case of a funded scheme like EPS, 1995 wherein the contribution of the employer and Government is at a fixed rate of 8.33 per cent and 1.16 per cent respectively. Therefore, the value of benefits cannot be left open-ended by linking it with inflation which is variable.

This information given by Shri Bandaru Dattatreya, the Minister of State (IC) for Labour and Employment, in reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.

AIBEA Meeting with Finance Minister



AIBEA’s Meeting with the Finance Minister on 26.4.2016

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 27/191/2016/24
29-4-2016
TO ALL OFFICE BEARERS, STATE FEDERATIONS AND ALL INDIA BANKWISE ORGANISATIONS:

Dear Comrades,
Violation of Bilateral agreement, unilateral changes in service conditions and refusal to concede genuine demands of employees in Associate Banks at the instance of SBI Management.

Units are aware of the problems in the Associate Banks where the managements are imposing unilateral service conditions on the employees in violation of the Bipartite Settlement and even genuine demands like extension of Govt. guidelines on compassionate ground appointment scheme and revision in staff housing loan limits are being deliberately denied with a view to browbeat and black mail the employees to accept their Career progression Scheme notwithstanding the fact that AIBEA/SSBEA have offered to discuss, negotiate the settlement the entire issue through mutual discussions.

That is why we had to observe All India Strike on 8th January, 2016 to focus these issues. It is matter of pride that the entire employees have rejected the deceitful offer of additional monetary benefits in exchange of adverse changes in service conditions.

On 23-3-2016, AIBEA delegation, along with leaders of SSBEA, met the Finance Minister and urged upon him to intervene and resolve the issues. In our General Council, a resolution has been adopted calling upon the managements of SBI and Associate Banks to negotiate and settle the issues. Again, as a follow-up measure, AIBEA met the Finance Minister and Minister of State for Finance on 26-4-2016 and again requested them to intervene in the matter.

We have submitted a letter in person to them seeking expeditious resolution of our issues and demands. If still results are not forthcoming, General Council has decided that further struggles will have to be undertaken.

With greetings,
Yours Comradely,
C.H. VENKATACHALAM

Hon’ble Union Minister for Finance,
Government of India,
New Delhi.

Respected Sir,

Issues in Associate Banks of SBI:

We draw your kind attention to the memorandum submitted by us on 23.3.2016 when we met you in a delegation regarding the following problems faced by our unions and employees in the Associate Banks.

1. Non extension of compassionate ground appointment scheme in the 5 Associate Banks as per the Government guidelines. All other banks have adopted and implemented the Govt. guidelines

2. Improvement/enhancement in the staff housing loan limit in the 5 Associate Banks while in all other banks the limit has been increased and even within the Associate Banks, the officers’ housing loan limit has been improved thus discriminating the employees.

3. Unilateral imposition and implementation of career progression policy/service conditions in the Associate Banks in violation of the existing bipartite agreement while we have clearly expressed our desire to resolve the issues by mutual discussion and bilateral talks.

4. Making Associate Banks independent to enable them to become more viable, vibrant and strong Banks.
Sir, you had given a patient hearing of these issues and assured to advice the concerned authorities to look into these matters for proper reddressal.

We once again seek your kind intervention in these matters so that the problems are resolved amicably.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
C H VENKATACHALAM
GENERAL SECRETARY
