    Going by what is being reported the settlement seems to be a sell out. It appears that only the retired leaders are going to benefit from this settlement at the cost of the employees in service. It is strange that the unions which do not have mandate for representing retired employees went out of the way just to help the retired leaders who otherwise do not have any stake in the settlement.

    Pension option should not be tagged with wage settlement. It is a seperate issue. In a democratic country the management / iba can not misrepresent their employees what they did earlier .As per my understanding, the existing pension agreement stands on a vague agreement, if it is contested in a court of law, it would be a void agreement ab-initio. Any change afterwards invites fresh option. In the pension agreement, right to strike to the employees was struck down. A lot of employees did not put their option in faviour of pension . Afterwards that clause was withdrawn, but option not given.
    I belive the option to either side should be an open ended scheme. A few leaders commited mistake and for that reason the IBA would behave undemocratic and opportunist. IBA is consisted of lerned people and professionals , side by side leaders hold very low profile . In future we should be rational and not be a Chess-game.
    Thank you.

    massage received….

    please publish….

    After more than 35 years of service as an officer, I retired from the bank on 31.7.2009 as Senior Manager. At the time of introduction of pension in the banks, unfortunately I opted CPF based on the wise advice of wise leaders of our Association.
    Though I was in service on the start of effective date of this 9th bipartite settlement, I am considered as retired PF optee for the latest pension option. Accordingly as per the settlement I have to refund the entire PF and interest (bank share) I have received at the time of retirement plus a whopping 56.00% of that amount. It comes to around Rs15.60 lakh (PF and interest received Rs 10 lakh + my additional contribution Rs 5.60)
    Apart from the atrocity, unfairness, discrimination and injustice involved in such a stipulation, its sheer arithmetic also baffles me to no end. As every one is engrossed in the injustice of shelling out 2.8 times of monthly salary for PF optees in service, no one is seen giving any attention to this.
    Further one leader was seen advising the serving PF optees to take comfort in the fact that they are shelling out only 15% of their accumulated PF whereas retirees are shelling out 56% due to their historic settlement. The baffling arithmetic will be evident from the following
    As per the IBA minutes released the arithmetic involved is as follows.
    1.No of retired PF optees 60,000.
    2.Banks total liability to offer pension option to those retirees
    as arrived at by actuarial valuation 4774 crore
    3.PF accumulation of those retirees as on 31.3.2008 1657 crore
    4.Balance liability 3116 crore
    5.30% of this liability to be shared by employees 934.95 crore
    6.This comes to 56.42% of PF accumulation of Rs1657 crores ———–
    7.If this 934.95 crore contribution required is shared by all the
    60,000 retirees it comes to per head contribution of only… 1.55 lakh
    8.Then how come that I need to shell out Rs 5.65 lakh as my
    additional contribution
    9.If the banks insist on 56.00% of PF and interest received irrespective
    of the quantum and if at least 1/3 rd of 60,000 retirees contribute at
    this rate and remaining 2/3 with a lesser contribution of Rs 2lakh
    the amount collected will be double of the deficit at…………………..1920 crore
    10.Who is going to watch on those collections? These hapless retirees or
    their insincere leaders.
    11.I even have doubts about the PF accumulation figure provided.
    12.If IBA can come up with such atrocious conditions one can also
    doubt those figures.
    13.Hence my suggestion in this regard is – 60000 retired PF optees will
    share the deficit of Rs 935 crores at the rate of Rs1.56 lakh per head
    or 56.00 % of PF which ever is lower. This will make the refund
    transparent ,will clear the confusion and will prevent excess
    16.Please bring this mail to the attention of all the retirees for their opinion and

    settlement was delayed a lot, before signing.
    Now further delayed for want of government clearance.
    It appears that IBA as well as unions are not serious to
    find out a solution for early implementation of the settlement of officer’s and pension option, for various reasons better known to them. Employees are in dark as they are being informed to keep patience at every day.Thanks to them.
