United forum had talks with DG(KCC), CGM and DGM of HRMD, and  ED Shri Gandhi.
According to the circular ,the  pension issue is comprising of updation of pension and fresh pension option and not frequency of wage revision / perks, which relates primarily to the banking sector and flows from various tribunals / arbitration awards and bipartite settlements as per lD Act;
Government‘s proposals in this regard are  beyond their jurisdiction and is ‘unacceptable’.
“We have been demanding improvement of pension and not reduction thereof. We emphasized that updation of pension every 10 years will create many anomalies and differential treatments.”

“United Forum will react strongly through intensive agitations if interest of employees and retirees are adversely affected in the name of improvements” it is stated in the circular.
They also  urged on the Bank to pursue the matter further with the Govt.
