DETAILS OF THE INTERIM STAY ORDER OF MADRAS HIGH COURT IN BANK PENSION ISSUE.

 Circular No. 4/2010                                                                                Dated: 30 Jun 2010
 Friends,
Ever since the news about our obtaining an interim stay at the Hon’ble Madras High Court was flashed through the internet on 23.06.2010, we have been receiving hundreds of calls from various parts of the country requesting them to provide additional details.   
Simultaneously, a vicious propaganda was unleashed through SMS in the Tamil Nadu region that the stay is applicable only for our members and not for others.  Those who had no idea about the details of our affidavit were spreading another rumour that by obtaining a stay order we have stopped all chances of getting any option for pension.  In many other parts of the country,  another sms campaign was going on that obtention of an interim stay is nothing but a false propaganda and there was no such stay.  Many AIBEA leaders were quoting the internet and telling their members that no such case is available in the web site of Madras High Court.  
On the contrary, congratulatory messages were pouring in thousands from bank employees  from various parts of the country, especially from U. P., which has taken a lead in organizing their protest over this settlement from day one.
First let us make one thing clear.  Our writ petition was filed only to quash the Clause 32 of the 9th bipartite settlement and that of Clause 1 of the pension settlement, in so far as the said clauses require the PF optees to contribute 2.8 times the Nov 2007 revised pay if they want to opt for the pension scheme.  We had also further prayed to direct the respondents to strictly adhere to Clause 3 of the minutes of discussions held on 27.11.2009 between the IBA and the unions with regard to sharing the additional cost of pension.
Ever since the signing of the settlement, the UFBU has never come out with any communication for the reasons in their sudden change of stand from the earlier agreed terms of  1.6 times (as per the minutes of discussion on 27.11.2009) the revised pay from all the employees to putting the entire load on the PF optees.  Now we have made all the signatory unions of the settlement, besides the IBA  as respondents  in our writ petition.  The real face of all these unions will now become public when they file their counter to our writ petition  in the HighCourt.
The earlier orders of the court was received by us late in the evening of 25.06.2010 and on perusing the verbatim orders, we observed some error in our representation.  Our advocates moved the   necessary motion before the Hon’ble High Court to set right those errors at the earliest opportunity viz., on 28.06.2010.  The Hon’ble Court was pleased to permit the same and accordingly our case was listed on 29.06.2010 as an adjourned admission case.
During the course of the hearing on 29.06.2010, the advocates for AIBEA and IBA were present  and they objected to the continuation of the stay and wanted the same  to be vacated..  The Hon’ble Judge  turned down their objections and advised them to file their counter, now that they have taken note of our writ petition.   The Hon’ble Judge also ruled in the open court that he will issue amended orders as prayed for by us. Now the  case has been posted for next hearing on  06.07.2010.
Friends, we now want all of you to be clear about one thing.  The interim stay is  only on the operation of Clause 32 of the 9th  bipartite Settlement & Clause 1 of the pension settlement, only in so far as the said clause require the PF optees  to contribute 2.8 times of  Nov 2007 pay to become members of the Pension Fund.  It is not limited just to our members alone, but applicable for all the bank employees who are affected by the said settlement.  We have neither obtained any stay on the settlement  nor have we interfered in any manner with the payment of arrears.
Our entire writ petition can be viewed in the internet at AllBankingSolutions.com and also at Bankers-Sangharsh.com,  both of whom  have been doing a commendable job of  empowering the bank employees by bringing out  the latest happenings in the industry. (Click here to view the entire writ petition )
It has also been brought to our knowledge that another sms campaign is going around advising the bank employees not to pay any money or donation for fighting court cases.  To day, we can proudly inform everybody that Canara Bank Workers’ Union has not collected a single paisa from anybody for this court case expense nor do we intend collecting any donation or levy from any source.  All our expenses are met through our own resources only.  Let it be  remembered that this union was nurtured by  the late Shri Devidas Pai, our former General Secretary, a towering personality who was well known for his impeccablefinancial integrity and high moral standards.
With Greetings,
Fraternally yours,
(Balasubramanya Pai)

Madras High Court Stay on Bank Pension continues, next hearing on 6th July. Nagaland implements pay hike.

Shri Jayesh B Dolia of M/s Aiyar & Dolia appeared on behalf of AIBEA to oppose the continuance of the interim stay. However, the Hon'ble Judge asked them to file their counter affidavits and permitted continuation of the interim stay. Next hearing has been fixed for 6th July 2010.

Online petition against proposed pay hike for MPs

Vity-Based Sajag Nagrik Manch on Tuesday launched an online petition opposing the plan to hike salaries of Members of Parliament (MPs).On its first day, www.petitiononline.com received over a hundred signatures.
President of the Manch Vivek Velankar said: “Common citizens have been facing many hardships over the last year owing to inflation. It is becoming increasingly difficult to make ends meet. Setting aside the 5 per cent in the organised sector, 95 per cent have no scope of increasing their earnings. In this backdrop, the MPs have been getting decent salaries, not to mention the allowances. It is unethical to even think of a salary hike for them at this juncture. The proposal can only be likened to Nero playing the fiddle when Rome was burning.”“The online petition will be active for four-five days and then sent to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and leaders of the major political parties,” Velankar added.

University teachers will be assessed, graded on their performance or promotions and career advancements

From now on, teachers will be graded and assessed annually on their performance and become eligible for promotions and career advancements based on their teaching performance, research work and publication quality.
With the University Grants Commission (UGC) today notifying its “Regulations on Minimum Qualifications for Appointment of Teachers and other Academic Staff in Universities and Colleges and Measures for the Maintenance of Standards in Higher Education, performance of teachers will be assessed on the basis of a Performance Based Assessment System (PBAS) in which scores have been assigned to each sub-dimension or Academic Performance Indicator (API).
As per APIs identified by the UGC and approved by the (HRD) Ministry, 75 per cent weightage will be given to “teaching, learning & evaluation” activities which will include lectures, practicals and tutorials taken, teaching duties in excess of UGC norms, use of innovative teaching tools and examination duties.
Fifteen per cent weightage will be accorded to “co-curricular, extension and professional development related activities” of a teacher which will comprise student-related, field based activities like NSS/NCC, contribution to management of department, participation in seminars, conferences, short-term training courses and talks.
Further, selection committees will have the option of observing candidates in actual classroom situations or through research presentations.
That apart, API scores are proposed for “research and academic contribution” of a teacher. While research papers, published in refereed journals, will fetch a teacher 15 points per publication, it will be 10 points in case of a non-refereed journal.
Research publications like books, chapters in books and so on will also earn a teacher scores — for example, 50 points for a sole-author publication, 10 points for a chapter in an edited book, 25 points for sole-author subject books by national-level publishers or Central, state government publications.
For sponsored research projects ranging from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 30 lakh across various disciplines, 20 points will be earned by the teachers concerned for each project. Minor projects will earn teachers 10-15 points while consultancy projects will also fetch some 10 points.
Relying heavily on self-assessment by teachers, these API scores will be derived from objectively verifiable criteria that will be drawn up by a screening/selection committee. UGC will soon be sending a PBAS proforma to all varsities which will also be free to devise their own PBAS based on it.
Teachers will be able to offer themselves for assessment for promotion once they fulfill minimum API scores — they will also be able to get increments to the tune of 3 per cent of the Academic Grade Pay (AGP) — as outlined under the Sixth Pay Commission.
State governments have also been asked to amend their relevant Acts within six months to enable implementation of these regulations.
Under the regulations, universities and colleges will set up Internal Quality Assessment Cells within three months and these will keep the annual database for individual and institutional performance. The assessment systems will become tougher as teachers move up from Associate Professor level to higher levels but research requirements will be kept lower for college teachers than varsity teachers, keeping in mind variations in available infrastructure.
The regulations ask colleges to assign research time to college teachers and provide necessary infrastructure. Also outlined are eligibility conditions for teachers at various levels from Assistant Professor-level to Principal-level, APIs for each category and the flexibility to appoint reputed academics even if they may have superannuated or may be outside the UGC system.
The G K Chadha-headed committee on pay revision for teachers had recommended teacher assessment, including a provision for evaluation of a teacher by students. This has been dropped in the final UGC regulations in favour of self-assessment alone, in keeping with demands of the teachers.

Madras High Court stays contribution of 2.8 time of the Nov 2007 pay by the present CPF optees to join the pension fund




The Madras High Court has granted interim stay of a clause in the ninth bipartite settlement for bank employees of April this year requiring contributory provident fund optees to become pension optees upon contributing 2.8 times of the revised pay payable for November 2007 onwards to the Pension Fund.
Justice K. Venkataraman passed the interim order on a petition by the Canara Bank Workers Union, Nungambakkam and R. Radhakrishnan of Nungambakkam, a member of the managing committee of the union.
The petitioners submitted that in the previous pension settlement dated October 29, 1993, and Pension Regulations 1995, there was a provision only for transfer of banks' contribution to the PF account along with accrued interest. There was no provision for payment or transfer of any other additional amount.
While in the seventh and eighth bipartite settlements all employees (both pension and PF optees) had contributed to fund the gap in the Pension Fund, in the present settlement dated April 27, the entire load had been placed only on those employees who wanted to opt for pension now, while the existing pension optees were left free. The contemplated recovery exclusively from the PF optees who wished to join the Pension Fund now amounted to discrimination and was violative of the Constitution.
Mr. Justice Venkataraman ordered notice regarding admission returnable in three weeks.

Circular No. 3/2010 Dated: 26 Jun 2010

Interim Stay Granted

Friends,

As informed to you in our previous circular, a legal-cell was constituted under the guidance of our President at Chennai and Dr.R. Radhakrishnan, our Managing Committee member was entrusted with the task of coordinating its activities. Our legal cell went into the issue of Pension since the days of Sastry Award and came out with a lot of startling facts and revelations. For the benefit of our members we furnish hereunder a few of the important points noticed by our team.

1. Neither in the previous Pension Settlement of 1993 nor in the subsequent Pension Regulations of 1995, there is any provision for contribution from the employees to fill up any shortfall or gap in the Pension Fund.

2. In terms of the Pension Regulations of 1995, it is the duty of the management to ascertain the financial requirements of the Pension Fund and make additional contributions to the Fund as may be required.

3. The technique adopted for filling up of the gap in the Pension Fund by contributing a share of the revised wages during the 7th & 8th Bipartite Settlements is not envisaged under the Pension Regulations.

4. The PF optees have been forced to forego a portion of their duly earned wages to build up the pension fund, even though they are not beneficiaries of the fund.

5. The deletion of the penal clause on strike in the Pension Regulations was effected during 1999, surreptitiously, without any publicity and without giving another option to the PF optees to join the Pension Fund as was done in the case of RBI.

6. The Pension Settlement of 1993 and the minutes of the small committee of IBA & the unions clearly provide that the pension scheme in Banks is on the lines of the pension scheme in RBI and that of the Central Civil Services Pension Rules 1972, both of which are non-contributory(by the employees) in nature. Therefore the question of “sharing the incremental cost of pension in every wage revision” should not have been accepted by the signatories of the settlements, since neither the govt employees nor the RBI employees contribute anything to share the incremental cost of servicing pension.

Shri C N Venugopalan, a SVRS optee from Union Bank and a pioneering crusader in this pension issue for nearly a decade, was kind enough to send us additional documents and inputs. Shri N Pradeep Kumar (formerly of Bank of India) and a practising Supreme Court advocate was delighted to send us detailed arguments and citations from land mark cases on pension. We are indeed grateful to both these gentlemen for their guidance, material and the very best of their wishes conveyed through their emails to our President. Besides, our group was also regularly exchanging and comparing notes with Shri Kamlesh Chaturvedi, General Secretary of PNB Workers Union U.P., who fired the first salvo on this pension settlement through his writ petition in the Allahabad High Court.

Accordingly, our team filed a Writ Petition in the Hon’ble High Court of Judicature at Madras, praying for grant of an interim stay only in so far as it concerns the contribution of 2.8 time of the Nov 2007 pay by the present CPF optees to join the pension fund. The Hon’ble High Court has granted an interim stay with notice to the parties returnable in three weeks. Additional details on this will be communicated in due course.

We now expect the IBA to rush to Delhi to transfer our WP (along with that of the Punjab National Bank Workers Union(U.P.) and All India Punjab National Bank Workers Federation , Delhi) to the Supreme Court. The other possibility is for them to approach the Madras High Court to get this stay vacated. We also reliably understand that a few of the signatory unions are very keen on getting the stay vacated.

Despite opposition pouring in from every nook and corner of the country over the last two months, the UFBU is yet to come out with any circular stating the logic in signing the settlement or the truth behind their sudden last minute change of stand from 1.6 to 2.8. We expect them to reveal their contentions at least in the course legal cases now raised in various parts of the country

Friends, it should be remembered that we cannot afford to remain idle or complacent after obtaining a stay. The need of the hour is to remain vigilant and focus our efforts till we achieve complete success in our endeavor. The betrayers of bank employees have to be exposed organizationally as well as legally and shown the door. The status of bank employees, which presently happens to be that of a docile flock of hapless followers controlled by cut-throats, needs to be lifted to that of an elite, empowered, vigilant and fearless group of warriors, who cannot be taken for a ride by any set of self-seeking leaders. Let us all put in our efforts to achieve that glorious state.

Fraternally yours,

(Balasubramanya Pai)

Manipur College teachers demand revised pay.
Setting an ultimatum to implement UGC's revised pay scale in the 28 Government colleges of Manipur by July 3, the Federation of College Teachers Association has threatened to take recourse various form agitation from July 5 .

The federation has submitted copies of an ultimatum towards this end to the Chief Minister and the Education Minister today.

Later addressing a press meet at Manipur Press Club here, convenor of the federation M Lokendro said that pay scales of Government employees are revised every 10 years all over the country.

This time too, most of the States have revised pay scales of their employees in line with the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission. The State Govt issued a notification regarding implementation of 6th Pay Commission for general employees on May 5 .

However, college teachers were conspicuously left out from the pay revision, Lokendro decried.

For the last 37 years, the State Cabinet has been adopting one decision or another against implementation of UGC schemes and UGC pay scales.

There was no point in adopting any decision by the State Government for UGC pay scales were provided by the UGC, he asserted.

Recalling that the Finance Dept issued a budget circular on May 11 asking all departments to furnish budget estimates for 2010-11 by May 31 last, the convenor disclosed that Higher Education Dept was still unable to submit its budget estimate as no revised pay structure was available.

The Centre should provide 80 per cent of the additional amount that would be required for paying UGC's revised pay scale starting from January 1, 2006 till March 31 this year.

The State Government should produce only 20 per cent.

It would be beneficial to the State Government to take the assured amount of 80 per cent from the Ministry of Human Resource Development so that some crores of rupees are deposited in the balance account of the State before time lapses.

Since February last year, teachers of the 28 Government colleges of Manipur have been demanding implementation of the UGC's revised pay scale and extension of service period for teachers to 65 years.

However, there has been no positive response from the Government till date, Lokendro lamented.

The demand for extension of service period to 65 years of age was not any whimsical demand.

It was one provision included in the Revised UGC Pay Scale to the College Teachers and Age of Superannuation as per revised scheme, claimed president of the federation Dr Kh Manihar.

While the teachers have been restraining themselves from taking recourse to any intense agitation in the interest of students, the Govt has been paying little attention to the grievances of teachers.

Dr Manihar also appealed to the Govt to shed its non-responsive attitude towards teachers.

Mizoram govt approves panel report on 6th pay scale for employees and higher education teachers.. Nagaland Staff warn of office shutdown if pay hike not implemented.

Mizoram
The meeting yesterday {22/06} under the chairmanship of  Chief Minister Mr. Lal Thanhawla approved in principle the report of Cabinet Sub Committee on 6th Pay Implementation.

The meeting also agreed to review genuine grievances of some groups of Government servants.
The meeting also approved in principle the proposed implementation of scheme of revision of pay of teachers and equivalent cadres in universities and colleges on the recommendation of the Sixth Central Pay Commission.

Nagaland
Nagaland employees today [22/06] threatened to close offices indefinitely if the government failed to implement the revised payscale as recommended by the 6th Pay Commission by June 25.
The Confederation of All Nagaland States Services Employees Association directed all its units throughout the state to prepare for the next course of action if they received “no positive response” on or before June 25.
The association resorted to three days of mass casual leave from May 24 paralysing the state departments.
The employees had put forward their demands in writing twice to the government, addressed to the chairman of the cabinet sub-committee.
“But no positive response has been received. It may be noted that during the last meeting with the cabinet sub-committee, the house expressed its sincere desire to resolve the stalemate amicably through dialogue,” the association’s president, David Sumi, said.
The government had stated that Rs 712 crore had been allotted by the Centre to implement the revised payscale.
The All India Services cadres has been given their due share of arrears with effect from January 1, 2006, but the state government employees are being forced to accept notional increment from June 1, 2008, without arrears.
“Why cannot there be a little more kindness shown to the state employees?” a member of the association asked.

Judicial Staff PIL : Govt. asked to file affidavit.


The Patna high court on Monday gave a week’s time to the state government to file a counter affidavit to a PIL of Bihar Civil Courts’ Employees’ Association for implementation of the Shetty Commission recommendation to enhance the salary of the employees of the civil courts in the state.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice Rekha Manharlal Doshit and Justice Shiva Kirti Singh heard petitioner’s counsel Y V Giri who submitted that the Supreme Court had already made it clear that the employees of the civil courts should also be given the salary enhancement as per the Shetty Commission recommendation.

The civil court employees in a representation to the Patna HC Chief Justice about a year back sought enhancement of their salary as per the recommendation of the Sixth Pay Commission in the light of Shetty Commission report. The HC converted the representation into a PIL.

The civil court employees’ association of Bihar filed an intervener petition in the Supreme Court which, in its observation, made it clear that the civil court employees should be given the enhanced salary.
On Monday, state government counsel Siddharth Prasad told the division bench the state cabinet has proposed to implement the Shetty Commission report in toto.
