PENSIONERS ALL OVER INDIA FACE PROBLEM IN DRAWING PENSION

Today, our GS spoke to Secretary, Department of Pension about the difficulties.

DoP&PW has taken up the matter with Finance Ministry.

02/12

IT IS NOT BLACK MONEY....IT IS NOT UNACCOUNTED MONEY....IT IS OUR, PURE WHITE MONEY

[REPORT APPEARED IN INDIAN EXPRESS ABOUT SITUATION IN DIFFERENT STATES.]

WEST BENGAL

Across Kolkata, most of the ATMs were either closed or had the ‘No Cash’ sign outside. Many senior citizens were among those standing in long queues outside banks. “My son is a central government employee and hardly has time to withdraw money from the bank or ATM. By the time he returns from office, the cash is over at the ATM,” said Nimai Ranjan Bose, 70, a retired school teacher who was waiting outside a private bank on Christopher Road.

JHARKHAND

At the Bank of India branch at Pithoria, nearly 25 km from Ranchi, Trilokinath Dubey, 76, was waiting for his turn to withdraw his pension. The retired SSC grade clerk wanted Rs 13,000. “I came in the morning from my village, Bukru, which is five kilometres away. They said there was a cash problem and asked me to go to another branch nearby. There, they told me to withdraw only Rs 6,000. But I was carrying only one cheque of Rs 13,000. So I went home and have come back again,” he said, hoping that he would not have to return on Friday.

KARNATAKA

There were numerous complaints in Bengaluru of banks restricting customers from withdrawing their weekly limit of Rs 24,000. At many banks, customers were told that they could only withdraw Rs 4,000-Rs 10,000. “I gave a cheque for Rs 20,000 but was told I can withdraw only Rs 4,000. There was no cash in the ATM as usual,” said an IT sector employee.

Long lines were seen from early morning outside many banks around Bengaluru. To ease the pressure, many firms handed out small fractions of salaries in cash. For many small establishments, pay day is on December 7 or 10, and companies in sectors like the garment industry which employ large numbers of women are hoping the cash crisis will ease by then.

ANDHRA PRADESH & TELANGANA

While many ATMs remained closed, most of the ATMs which were open ran out of cash within hours on Thursday morning, leading to long queues outside banks. But hundreds of people who skipped work to stand in the queues were left stranded as bank officials came out and announced there was no cash.

“I don’t know what to do now. I don’t have any cash. I don’t know how to pay my domestic help. I joined this queue at 9:30 am, taking half-day leave, but I have to return empty-handed,” Kiran Ratanpal, a techie waiting outside an HDFC ATM at Hitech City Road.

“My landlord has refused to accept cheque or online transfer to his account. He is demanding cash… I can’t skip office everyday to stand in line,” said Sai Venkat, HR manager at a pharmaceutical company.

Hours after the banks opened in the morning, scuffles were reported as managers handed out the last 50 tokens. “We have run out of cash. We filled Rs 12 lakh in the ATMs and it is over now. We cannot do anything until we receive more cash which may take a day or two,” said an HDFC official at Jubilee Hills.

MAHARASHTRA

The crowd of customers at banks on the first day of the month wasn’t as expected, but bankers said they expected larger crowds on Saturday. “As pay day fell on a weekday, most people would be at work. But Saturday may see a surge of people,” said an official of HDFC bank in Kandivli East in suburban Mumbai. What may have helped is that many companies also tied up with private banks and installed micro ATMs at their offices.

The banks also saw a surge in customers from the unorganised sector who usually receive their salaries in cash. “My employers did not want to spend the cash they had, and gave me a cheque,” said Sumita Prasad, who works as a domestic help.

Many banks across the city ran out of cash. Most ATMs near Nariman Point were shut by mid-afternoon as cash had dried up due to withdrawals in the morning.

PUNJAB & HARYANA

With banks and ATMs running out of cash, people in different districts of Haryana were left cashless on pay day. Some Group C and D government employees, however, were provided Rs 10,000 cash as part of their salaries. In most districts, people stood in long queues outside banks and ATMs. There were many pensioners in the crowd. A few hours after they opened, most banks in Doaba region of Punjab ran out of cash. “We could disburse cash to about 300 customers, but there is a huge queue outside and we have no cash,” said a PNB official. Most of the ATMs too were empty before noon.

GUJARAT

The Bank of Baroda (BoB) branch in Kantharia, Bharuch, locked its gates for some time on Thursday afternoon, following an altercation with customers after it ran out of cash. On Wednesday too, police had to intervene in a confrontation between bank officials and customers at the bank’s branch in Mohammadpura, Bharuch city.

“Today, we have disbursed Rs 15 lakh to about 150 account holders,” said Shrikant, manager of the BoB branch in Kantharia.

In Vadodara and Ahmedabad, several branches ran out of cash despite the careful rationing. Bank managers complained that the cash reserves provided by the RBI for pay day were insufficient to meet the demand.

An official of a nationalised bank in Mandvi area of Vadodara said about 300 customers had queued up within the first working hour on Thursday. “Our cash reserves won’t even be enough for 15 per cent of the crowd that we saw this morning. The shortage forced us to restrict withdrawals to Rs 10,000 each, and, in some cases, even Rs 5,000. We are telling customers to opt for cheque transactions and e-payments,” he said.

“We are facing an acute cash crunch… the situation will take a few more weeks to ease. We received only 20 per cent of the cash reserves that were needed to meet the withdrawal demand… The withdrawals are strictly capped at a maximum of Rs 10,000 per account,” said an SBI official.

“I had to wait for an hour. When I went in, I was told I would get Rs 10,000 against my current account. I need at least Rs 24,000 to pay my employees. Even three weeks later, we are begging for money from our own accounts,” said Jignesh Shah, a trader.

MADHYA PRADESH

While the SBI branches in Bhopal saw long queues, most of the other banks did not report any unusual turnout, according to sources in the state-level bankers’ committee.

“There were no reports of banks running out of cash,” said an SLBC official, adding that customers who withdrew money in the last three weeks have not deposited it.

Some people in M P Nagar, the commercial hub of Bhopal city, said some bank branches did not allow them to withdraw more than Rs 10,000. As for the ATMs, most of them either ran out of cash or dispensed only Rs 2,000 notes.

In rural areas, many disappointed customers had to return empty-handed.

RAJASTHAN

People in some areas like Gandhinagar said they left their homes early in the morning to stand in queues to draw their salaries. Waseem Javed, 25, who works in the telecom sector, said he had taken half-day leave to stand in a queue on Thursday. “This is the sixth ATM I have come to, the others either had long queues or were shut,” he said.

Malik Fahad, 24, who delivers goods for online shopping portal Amazon, said he earned only Rs 6,000 in November, while he usually earns about Rs 14,000. “I give about Rs 3,000-4,000 to mother, Rs 1,000 to my sister, and about Rs 2,000 as godown rent. Now I not only have less money, but am also unable to withdraw it,” he said.

Chandra Prakash, 33, who runs a small jewellery manufacturing unit, said he needed to pay his workers. “I live in Subhash Chowk area and employ seven persons. I pay most of my workers in cash, as quite a few are illiterate and don’t have bank accounts,” he said. “But paying their wages now is a problem.”

Mohammad Altaf, 28, who runs his own business in Ghatgate, said he was only allowed to withdraw Rs 5,000, though he has to pay 10 employees. “The businessman who gives us work cleared all my pending payments after November 8 in demonetised currency. I had no option but to pay my workers in old currency. But since they couldn’t exchange the notes at the banks, they exchanged Rs 1,000 notes for Rs 800. Their wages will be delayed this month,” he said.

UTTAR PRADESH

Despite the drop in morning temperature, hundreds of people, young and old, queued up outside ATMs and banks on Thursday. Some cases of scuffle and protests were reported from some cities.

“Even if I stand in ATM queues for almost a week, I won’t be able to withdraw enough to pay the salaries of my domestic workers. At the bank, I was asked to take only Rs 8,000 against my demand of Rs 20,000,” said Shalini Sharma in Agra.

Despite the preparations for pay day rush, there was chaos at the SBI branch in Tajganj area of Agra, where the bank opened almost an hour after its scheduled time due to lack of cash. In the afternoon, protesters blocked the Agra-Achhnera highway as most banks ran out of cash. Similar protests were also reported from Dhanauli area of Agra.

In Mathura, a 65-year-old man who was standing in the queue was reportedly beaten up by a policeman.

JAMMU & KASHMIR

With the state government disbursing only one-third of its total monthly salary bill of Rs 900-1000 crore to its nearly 4.5 lakh employees, and nationalised banks allowing payment of Rs 10,000 in cash to central government employees and army personnel at their respective establishments, there was no unusual rush at bank branches and ATMs across Jammu on Thursday.

PLEASE COME TO PALACE GROUNDS, BENGALURU
27/08

We are meeting once again in Bengaluru city in a jubilant mood. A special conference will be held from 10 AM to 5 PM on 18-9-2016, in the spacious Sheesh Mahal in Palace Grounds, near Cantt Railway Station, Bengaluru to celebrate the victory in the matter of IDA merger and freeing BSNL from sharing the pension liability. It is not just for celebration.The main purpose is to move further.We are not travelling back to the PAST; we have to move forward to the FUTURE.

FUTURE REVISION

Future Pension revision is most important. Every time, the exercise of preparing Cabinet Note, taking consent from four nodal ministries, then going to the Cabinet and waiting for 2-3 years may not be possible. Political situation may change and there may not be a minister to help us. There should be a system that ensures periodic revision of our pension in future.

TO BE NOT TO BE?

We do not want to quarrel with anybody. We represent all cadres of BSNL staff retired; from GM to RM. We can not and we shall not surrender interest of any section.We have no mentor to please.We discussed the matter in two CWC meetings; considered various options like approaching PRC and CPC, prepared a document and circulated it to other organizations representing BSNL pensioners and sought their cooperation. Then we took a decision. Once we take a stand consciously we are firm on that. Now everybody wants that future pension revision in BSNL should be delinked from the Pay revision in BSNL. After demanding it some people went and asked next Pension revision along with the pay revision. One organization went to PRC one day and demanded PRC benefit and very next day wrote to Secretary, Telecom demanding 7th CPC benefit. We shall not make such sudden changes in our stand.

100% GOVERNMENT LIABILITY

With annulment of 60% stipulation, the liability to pay pension to us is totally of the government of India. Government need not depend upon a PSU or a company working under it for taking decisions.

NO LINK WITH PAY

There is a wrong notion that pension revision is linked with pay revision. In 2015 Government granted One Rank One Pension to Ex-serviceman. There was no pay revision then. Now the orders are issued for pension revision for central pensioners. The Pension is multiplied by the factor of 2.57. Pay is not multiplied. Minimum pension in each grade is related to the minimum pay, no doubt. It benefits the senior pensioners who retired 2-3 decades ago. In our case, such seniors are DoT pensioners, not BSNL retirees and hence nothing to do with BSNL pay scales. In future, suppose BSNL is privatized. How can we link with the minimum pay in a private company?

WE SHOULD BE COVERED

Government of India has issued order on 4-8-2016 for revision of pension implementing the recommendation of seventh Central Pay Commission.It is endorsed by the Department of Telecom on 22-8-2016. The para 2.1 of DOP&PW order says;

“These orders shall apply to all pensioners/family pensioners who were drawing pension/family pension before 1.1.2016 under the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, Central Civil Services (Extraordinary Pension) Rules and the corresponding rules applicable to Railway pensioners and pensioners of All India Services, including officers of the Indian Civil Service retired from service on or after 1.1.1973. A pensioner/family pensioner, who became entitled to pension/family pension with effect from 01.01.2016 consequent on retirement/death of Government servant on 31.12.2015, would also be covered by these orders.”

We are receiving pension under the above CCS (Pension) Rules 1972. Hence, technically and legally we should be covered by the above orders endorsed by DOT. The order does not mention IDA pensioner or CDA pensioner at all. We can go to a court and get the favourable verdict. Then government will drag the matter with appeal, revision petition, review petition, Special Leave petition, Curative petition etc.4-5 years are to be wasted in court verandas. Finally it depends upon the government to take a decision and issue orders. This is the judiciary system in our country. So, instead of wasting our time on legal fights we want to approach the Government directly now itself and get the benefit.

WE ARE COVERED

The para 2.3 of the order dated 4-8-2016 from Pension Ministry further says;

“2.3 These orders also do not apply to retired High Court and Supreme Court Judges and other Constitutional/Statutory Authorities whose pension etc. is governed by separate rules/orders”.

We are not in the excluded category. It means we can be covered, we should be covered. We have clear locus standi to demand extension of the said order.

MOVEMENT ESSENTIAL

If we keep quiet no body will give any benefit. We should create a pressure. Please remember that the Ex-Servicemen fought for 45 years to get OROP. Very senior officers retired from Army came and sat on dharna. We should shout aloud. We should launch a movement for it. The decision making process should be influenced through some persons who matter.

Hence we meet in Bangalore. Please come and join this movement. Please come to Bangalore on 18, September 2016.

Let us jointly begin a new journey to ensure a definite, tension-free future for us.

With regards,

P S Ramankutty

DOUBTS, QUESTIONS, QUERIES....MANY WAYS TO DELAY

The File containing Cabinet Note on 78.2% case has come back to Member (F) with some queries. In turn, Member (F) has marked it to the DDG concerned. Our GS and Dy GS met the DDG today and discussed the matter and explained the position. The officers in the DDG’s Office are seriously studying the case.

The Delay is disgusting. Pensioners are waiting for more than two and a half years. All those who retired prior to 10-6-2013 are denied the benefit their juniors are getting.

HIGH POWERED COMMITTEE TO PROCESS 7TH CPC REPORT
14/01

On 13-1-2016, Government decided to set up a high-powered panel headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha to process the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission which will have bearing on the remuneration of 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners. The Cabinet has approved the setting up of Empowered Committee of Secretaries to process the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission in an overall perspective, Parliamentary affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters here.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries will function as a Screening Committee to process the recommendations with regard to all relevant factors of the Commission in an expeditious detailed and holistic fashion, an official statement said.

The implementation of the new pay scales is estimated to put an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore on the exchequer in 2016-17. Subject to acceptance by the government, they will take effect from January 1, 2016. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had said earlier that he was not worried about fiscal deficit and government would be able to meet its target despite additional outgo on account of higher pay.
