REMITTANCES TO CHQ

After the recent merger of five subsidiary banks (including State Bank of Travancore,with whom our CHQ has the Accounts) in SBI, the Bank is levying unnecessary charges and putting unwanted restrictions. More than Rs 25000 can not be sent to a particular account per day. One branch transfers Rs. 25000 to CHQ account one day. Nobody else can transfer amounts on that day.If they transfer we have to pay unnecessary fines.

Use NEFT to transfer funds to CHQ account.First, deposit the amount in the account of the branch.Then using NEFT (National Electronic Fund Transfer system) you can transfer any amount without paying extra charges. Else, you can remit the amounts as DD or pan India Cheque.

DO NOT USE CHQ PAN NUMBER

Some Circle Units have opened bank account giving CHQ PAN. Now, the Tax is deducted for the total amount taking together all the deposits made by CHQ and Circles with the same PAN.We are made to pay huge amounts as Income Tax.So, Circle Units are requested to obtain separate PAN. It is urgent.

ORGANISE THE DHARNA ON 18-7-2018 WITH VIGOUR

Dear Comrades.

As the next stage of our struggle programmes, organize massive dharna at SSA headquarters to press our demand for pension revision with effect from 1-1-2017 granting the fitment benefit suggested by Seventh CPC for central service pensioners in India. That is the only correct demand. We only raised the correct demand at the right time. Now, our MTNL retiree comrades are also with us in full spirit. We move together with hope.

PRC has not suggested any formula for pension revision. Whereas, CPC has suggested a formula for pension revision.

Joint forum of MTNL Retirees and AIBSNLPWA demand delinking of pension revision from pay revision. Delink it from PRC in total. Delink it from the fiscal performance of BSNL and MTNL. Because, for that, Government of India is paying pension; it need not depend upon the financial condition of BSNL/MTNL.

The Demonstration programme on 20-6-2018 had its impact. There is some visible change in the attitude of authorities. Small; but significant. By end of July 2018, our demand …. only our demand …. will be forwarded to Department of Pension. It is only a small advancement. We have to do a lot in coming days. Step by Step. No step goes in vain. It requires a policy decision at the highest level. So, send the resolutions to Prime Minister and the Minister for Pension.

Please organize maximum people on 18-7-2018. I know weather is not good at many places. But, we have faced all types of weather in our life.

Please send the photographs of the dharna with brief notes on Wednesday itself to me as Email or whatsapp. I am leaving for Chennai next day to attend the annual conference of Chennai based All India Federation of Pensioners Association. I will be back in Trivandrum only on next Sunday. So if I get the photos immediately, I can upload them in our Website on Wednesday itself.

VILLIVAKKAM BRANCH 14-7-2018


CHENNAI TRAFFIC BRANCH 14-7-2018

13/07

Department of Public Enterprises has issued orders stating that all PSEs should pay Gratuity at the revised rate; ceiling raised from Rs. 10 to 20 lakh. In the case of those who retired after 1-1-2017 and up to 28-3-2018, it is to be paid if the concerned PSE can afford. But, in the case of those who retired on or after 29-3-2018, revised rate is mandatory. In other words, PSEs should pay at the revised rate to those who retired on after 29-3-2018, irrespective of its affordability.

Since government is paying gratuity to BSNL retirees, the above order may not be applicable to BSNL. The BSNL retirees deserve different dispensation.
