Silent protest by RBI employees and retirees demanding updation of pension

A silent protest demonstration was held at RBI New Delhi today morning at 8AM against M/o finance’s delaying tactics regarding  decade old demand for revision of pension with every wage revision and opening of pension option.
A large number of retirees and employees gathered at the  main gate.

RBI Governor Sh. Raghuram Rajan, sprang a surprise as he  himself approached the placard holders directly and started explaining his position vis-a vis the government.

He said “I have been personally looking into the matter as the delay is troubling me as well.  He explained that when the issue was nearly its final solution, the officials / Finance Minister changed. This required  fresh efforts and persuasion.He still hoped for the best and said that my efforts in the matter are still going and let us hope for the best !

 leaders addressing the gathering

At that point  when the writer of the blog  pointed out : ” Sir,  we(retirees) are also doing our best to survive!,” he replied : ” I have full concern for the retired employee and understand their problems.
Let us wait and hope for the best!”
The delegation from the  UFRBOE met the Governor before the start of the board meeting.
Afterwards, they addressed the gathering.
It was informed that a crucial meeting with M/o finance is to be held today at M/o finance office. Governor, DG, and officials from HRDM will participate in the meeting.
Sh. Subedar President of AIRBEA, said that let us wait for the outcome  of the  meeting  today. He also said that enough ‘Gandhigiri’ has been followed by RBI employees and retirees, and even if things do not move now, we will have to resort to agitation instead of Silent protests.
The outcome of the meeting  scheduled  today may  be known by next week.
“Let us too  hope for the best!” so says Governor.
