PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE DISSEMINATION

SEEKING BENEFITS OVER AND ABOVE THE VOLUNTARY RETIREMENT SCHEME A MISADVENTURE- SUPREME COURT OF INDIA


           New Delhi : Dated 25″ September, 2019 : In a very significant judgement pronounced in IFCI Ltd. Vs Sanjay Behari & Others case (C.A.No.6995/2019) on September 17, 2019, Hon’ble Supreme Court of India held that any Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) is a package by itself and the employees retired under the scheme cannot claim any benefits beyond what has been envisaged in the VRS. The Hon’ble Supreme Court was dealing with an appeal filed by IFCI Ltd, A Govt. of India Undertaking against a Judgement of Hon’ble High Court of Delhi Bench.

          Some of the ex- employees of IFCI, who had opted for retirement under Voluntary Retirement Scheme floated by IFCI Ltd. in the year 2008, had claimed revision of their pension by referring the pay scale revision implemented by IFCI. Hon’ble Supreme Court rejected the claim principally on the ground that VRS is a package by itself and any subsequent ciaim cannot be entertained.

          Earlier VRS-2008 optees had filed a petition in the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi in the year 2016 claiming for revision of Pension. The learned single judge had dismissed the Petition in February, 2017. VRS-2008 optees then filed Letters Patent Appeal (LPA) in the Hon’ble High Court which was allowed by the Hon’ble High Court bench vide its judgement dated 17/01/2019. Aggrieved by the Order of Hon’ble High Court, IFCI filed Civil Appeal in Hon‘ble Supreme Court of India

          The judgement could prove to be a landmark as it has discussed various aspects earlier court judgements, VRS schemes and internal policy documents of IFCI for arriving at conclusion. The judgement has clearly set out legal position pertaining to Voluntary Retirement Schemes

Ministry of Finance
NORMS OF AADHAAR KYC ARE EASED, NOT FOR
 THE CHANGE OF ADDRESS IN AADHAAR
POSTED ON: 14 NOV 2019 4:28PM BY PIB DELHI

Norms of Aadhaar KYC are eased for opening of bank account and not for the change of address in Aadhaar, said the Department of Revenue (DoR), Ministry of Finance today while clarifying on Aadhaar KYC use with reference to its notification dated 13.11.2019 on amendment to the Prevention of Money-laundering (Maintenance of Records) Rules, 2005. The DoR said in a categorical statement that its notification is with regard to easing of Aadhaar KYC use for opening of the bank account for the convenience of people who often migrate from place to place for jobs or any other reason and it is not regarding the change of address in Aadhaar card, as has been misreported in various media.

Revenue Secretary, Dr. Ajay Bhushan Pandey said, “The amended PMLR applies only to Aadhaar KYC purposes for opening of bank account and not for the change of Address in Aadhaar card. If a person has moved residence for purposes of work and needs to use Aadhaar KYC for opening a new bank account or change his bank branch, etc., he can give a self declaration of new address while retaining the original address on his Aadhaar card”.

Dr Pandey said that the PML Rules amendment makes opening bank account easier for individuals who are living in an address different from their address in Aadhaar. People who submitted Aadhaar card with a different address as KYC at banks can now submit local address by providing a self-declaration.

He said that with this amendment, giving a self-declaration about a local address or any address other than the one on Aadhaar card will be sufficient as address proof to open bank account with Aadhaar KYC. This amendment brings in convenience especially for the migrant people. For example, if a migrant worker comes from Jharkhand to Mumbai and his/her Aadhaar has Jharkhand’s address, then to open a bank account a self-declaration about his/her local address in Mumbai will be sufficient for Aadhaar KYC.”

DoR sources said that the change has been made through an amendment in the PML Rules and not by way of amending Aadhaar Act/Regulations. So, it does not apply to change of address in Aadhaar card. This amendment has been issued to allow people who have used Aadhaar KYC to open bank account and want to give an address different from the address in Aadhaar as current address on self declaration basis.

Sub:    Merger of Single handed Post Offices in delivery offices - Case of West Bengal Circle
Sir,
            It has been brought to our notice that the West Bengal Circle Administration has issued orders to merge single handed Post Offices into delivery offices nearby.

            In this connection we would like to invite your kind attention towards an agreement  reached between unions and administration in the meeting held in the month of July-2011 on Strike Charter of Demands, in which assurance was given by the then Secretary (P) that no Post Office will be merged or closed. If it will not be feasible to run those due to some unavoidable circumstances, it will be shifted or relocated in some new emerging area of the city concerned.

Further the closure or merger of Post Offices will reduce the strength of Establishment. Senior Citizens and other needy persons taking services from their nearby Post Offices will have to move to a far place and it will adversely effect the customer base.

After introduction of Cadre Restructuring in PA Cadre, all single and double handed Post Offices have been designated as LSG Post Offices. If the number of single handed Post Offices will be reduced than the same number of LSG employees will have to move for other places and it will cause more dislocation to the staff.

We have several rounds of discussions with Member (P) and Secretary (P) that for the need of maker and checker procedure under CBS, all single handed Post Offices should be converted into double handed  by deploying the surplus staff from some branches of bigger Head Post Offices after CSI implementation.

Based on the above facts, we would urge upon you to kindly issue suitable instructions to CPMG West Bengal and other CPMGs not to close or merge single handed Post Offices, which will not be in favour of staff as well as administration.

Hopping for a positive action.
 Yours sincerely,

                      (R. N. Parashar)
                                                          Secretary General
