AS WE COULD UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE DECISIONS TAKEN BY GOI/NABARD SO FAR-
ALL RRB EMPLOYEES JOINED IN RRBs SINCE 1976 AND RETIRED AFTER 01.09.1987 TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR PENSION PAYMENTS TO START WITH EFFECT FROM 01.04.2018, PENDING PROCEDURAL FORMALITIES TO BE COMPLETED.
ALL EMPLOYEES IN THE ROLLS OF RRBs AS ON 31.03.2018 ARE COVERED.
NO CONTRIBUTION OF LOAD FROM EMPLOYEES, NO LINK WITH PROFIT OR LOSS OF RRBs, NO INTEREST ON REFUND OF BANKS CONTIBUTION CREDITED TO EMPLOYEE ACCOUNTS.
(We are waiting for the GOI notification to examine the total effect of the decisions for our further actions.)
Friends, AIRRBEA has been once again proved as the true vanguard of the RRB fraternity. We salute the vision and foresight of our mentor - Dilip Mukherjee Dada, who laid the path of our struggles for equity and justice.
AIRRBEA started its journey four decades back in 1978 and has scaled heights in championing the cause of RRB employees.
Our first triumph was Supreme Court directing Government of India to constitute NIT on 01.09.1987 to decide our pay structure. AIRRBEA was alone in the court that day with senior advocates.
Our second and most critical turning point was pronouncement of NIT Award on 30.04.1990, equating our pay scales, allowances and benefits on par with that of sponsor banks.
None other than AIRRBEA members were in the Tribunal as its staff and outside the Tribunal as petitioners that successfully achieved the Award. This Award gave us not only the pay scales but also the self respect /dignity/ identity in the society and boosted our confidence in our path.
Let us recall the continuous follow up made by AIRRBEA in the last three months towards this jubiliant state on Pension. We have written a letter to Joint Secretary, DFS on 17.04.2018 itself that the judgment is going to be pronounced any moment and requested him to advise all RRBs to make provisions in the present balance sheet itself. The next Day of Judgment itself, we have started pursuing the matter and issued a circular on 26.04.2018 with details of orders.
