WE SHALL STAND UNITED

Dear Comrade,

We all are senior citizens, retired and enjoying contended retired life with good health. You are aware that our Pension is not sufficient to bear the rising costs. We can demand the improvements and can archive only when we are united. On this occasion we would like to apprise you about OUR UNIT “Bank of India Retirees’ Association”. We are, shouldering the welfare activities of the retirees of our Bank in the state of Maharashtra and Goa for last 29 years.

Comrade, when we were in service, there were categories such as sub-staff, clerk, officer ....up to the Chairman of the Bank, but after retirement all are only ‘RETIREES’ of the Bank.

We are proud to mention that our unit have more than 5000 Life Members. Our Association is already registered under Societies Registration Act 1860 and Bombay Public Trust Act 1950. It is formed by great leaders like Sarvashri late C. S. Dighe, late M. L. Gala, late S. S. Dabholkar, Shri. N. C. Chhaya and Mr. Peter Fernandes. Our Unit is affiliated to Bank of India Federation of Retirees’ Associations, which is affiliated to All India Bank Retirees Federation (A. I. B. R. F.) with membership of more than 2,50,000 belonging to more than 46 affiliated Bank units, struggling at National Level for the welfare of the retirees.

AIBRF, with persistent efforts and coordination with the UFBU, is continuously fighting for our demands mainly for Updation of Pension, Improvement in Family Pension and Health Insurance. At All India level, A.I.B.R.F. had jointly with CBPRO arranged the ‘DHARNA’ programmes at Delhi and Mumbai , where retirees from all over the country from all Banks, assembled in large numbers, focusing the country’s attention on unity of Retirees. We are regularly meeting I.B.A. , U.F.B.U. and also Top Officials of Ministry of Finance. We also give Memorandum of Demands to MPs of various states, we are trying to raise our voice in Parliament. The journey ahead , however, is very long and we will have to continuously fight for our legitimate rights and benefits in the years to come. It can be achieved only by Banks retirees UNITY and Membership Strength.

During the course of 28 years, our Association have established cordial relations with the Bank Management, through reguler periodic meetings.
