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.

A report in Economic times on 19-9-2019 says:

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has asked all government pension paying banks to compensate pensioners, at a fixed rate of 8 percent per annum for delay in credit of their pension, revised pension or pension arrears for the delay after the due date of payment.

The above advisory forms part of RBI's master circular on disbursement of government pension by banks. The advisory was issued following complaints from pensioners claiming unreasonable delay in disbursement of pension and arrears.

The RBI circular states:

  • Pension paying banks should compensate the pensioner for delay in crediting pension/ arrears thereof at a fixed interest rate of 8 per cent per annum for the delay after the due date of payment and the compensation shall be credited to the pensioner's account automatically without any claim from the pensioner on the same day when the bank affords credit for revised pension/ pension arrears, in respect of all delayed pension payments made..

Today, it is 19 September. 51 years ago on 19-9-1968, central government employees went on a token strike for one day demanding Need Based Minimum wage etc.They did not attend the work for one day. The government led by late Smt. Indira Gandhi suppressed the agitation with all forces at its command. 17 comrades were killed in firing, lathcharge etc. Thousands were suspended from service. Thousands more were terminated. Thousands were transferred from one place to another. Some leaders also betrayed the workers. It is history now.

Just for not attending the office for a day. Now, despite employees attended and worked for 31 days, Management delayed their wages for 19 days. Management struck work for 19 days in BSNL and for 50 days in MTNL !!!

All forgot the Need Based Minimum wage.

All forgot the Martyrs of that struggle.

But, no struggle goes in vain. Many of us are products of that struggle. We were made stronger like steel due to the sufferings of those days. Our direction was changed. Our approach to life was changed.

On this day, let us pay homage to those comrades who did the extreme sacrifice.

Let us not forget history. We enjoy the decent pension now and a decent life because of the struggles …. PSR

In the eighth membership Verification to recognize unions of non-executive staff in BSNL, BSNLEU has once again emerged as the biggest organization securing 48127 Votes out of total 110973 votes. Their voting share is reduced; may be because no alliance was permitted this time. BSNLEU leads in 21 Circles out of 36.

NFTE BSNL has emerged as the second biggest organization, eligible to be recognized again with 39132 votes. There is an increase in their voting share.

Thus two organizations are qualified with more than 35% votes.

(We regret that some inadeartent mistakes occured in our posting yesterday, which was given based on earlier figures.)

The results have exposed the real strength of all the organizations participated in the verification.

Ten organizations could not cross the figure of 1 percent.

WE CONGRATULATE LEADERS OF BSNLEU AND NFTE.

Dear Comrades,

This year, the monsoon rains have created havoc in many states – Andhra, Assam, Bihar, Chhatisgarh, Delhi, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal, Jammu, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharastra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamilnadu, Telangana, UP, Uttrakhand ….

It is quite unusual. It is an extra ordinary situation.

Thanks to technology and timely warnings, lacs of people could be evacuated from their residences affected by floods. But, still hundreds have died. There is huge loss of property, crops and lifelong savings; some of which can never be regained.

It is time for us, as senior human beings who have seen many a tides in life, to help those suffering. As a WELARE organization we have done it in the past during floods/cyclones in Andhra, Chardham, Karnataka, Kerala, Orissa, Tamilnadu etc.

Let us declare the month of September 2019 as PMNRF donation drive month. As almost 20 states are affected this time, we cannot restrict the relief to any particular state. We must contribute maximum to the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF). We wish to make over our contribution to a Cabinet Minister in a function at a suitable place. The amount should be sufficiently impressive. If we collect at least Rs 100 per head from each member, we can easily contribute Rs 50 lacs. Rs 100 per head means only Rs 5 for each State. But our activists may not be able to approach all the 50,000 members. Hence, some comrades willing can donate more. No amount is small and no amount is more in relief work in the given situation.

It is our duty as senior citizens. And, just imagine the Goodwill that we may gain throughout the country. I request all the activists at every level to take this Noble cause seriously. It will not be an impossible target to reach. We have 30 long days before us. Please start the work today and now itself.

(General Secretary), 29--8--2019
