HERE IS THE DETAILS OF PETITION:
T.ASHOK SHENOY,B.A.B.L.,CAIIB.,                                BANGALORE
ADVOCATE,
A1-401, SHRIRAM WHITE HOUSE,                      DATED 18th May,2011
15TH CROSS, 6TH MAIN,
R T NAGAR, 2ND BLOCK,
BANGALORE- 560032.
Karnataka State
TO:
THE HONBLE CHIEF JUSTICE OF INDIA,
SUPREME COURT OF INDIA,
NEW DELHI- 110001
                           

      PUBLIC INTERESTLITIGATION PETITION 
     BEFORE THE HONOURABLE CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA

1. EARLIER SENIONER CITIZENS WERE CONSIDERED TO BE THOSE WHO HAVE COMPLETED 65 YEARS.NOW A SENIOR CITIZEN IS A PERSON WHO HAS COMPLETED 60 YEARS.

2.I AM REFERRING TO THE PENSION REGULATIONS OF BANK EMPLOYEES IN INDIA,1995.

3.I HAVE PUT IN 41 YEARS IN THE BANK AND WORKED IN VARIOUS CA[ACITIES AND VOLUNTARILY RETIRED AS A DIVISIONAL MANAGER. MY PRESENT MONTHLY PENSION IS RS, 15833/= WHILE CLERK WHO RETIRED RECEINTLY IN JUNE,2010 IS GETTING A MONTHLY PENSION OF OVER RS. 18000/=

4.IN THE BANK EMPLOYEES PENSION REGULATIONS 1995, IN THE LAS PARA IT IS MENTIONED THAT IN CASE ON ANY POINT OR MATTER THE REGULATION IS SILENT, THE PENSION RULES APPLICABLE TO THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE APPLIED. IN THE CASE OF CENTRAL GOVERNEMENT EMPLOYEES, AS AND WHEN THE PAY IS REVISED AS PER PAY COMMISSION REPORTS, PENSION ALSO IS UPDATED BY NEUTRALISING DEARNESS ALLOWANCE AND UPDATING THE PENSION. THIS IS NOT FOLLOWED IN THE CASE OF RETIRED BANK EMPLOYEES. ALL RETIREES ARE SENIOR CITIZENS AND MANY OF THE RETIREES HAVE ALREADY EXPIRED. NATURALLY THE PENSIONERS WANT TO GET THE BENEFITS DURING THEIR LIFETIME INSTEAD OF AFTER DEATH.

5.THE GOVT OF INDIA, MINISTRIES, INCOME TAX DE[T, INDIA RAILWAYS ARE GIVING CERTAIN CONCESSIONS TO THE SENIOR CITIZENS. PENSION CAN BETTER BE CALLED AS A SOCIAL SECURITY. IT IS DURING OLD AGE, THE PENSIONERS GET SICK AND HAVE TO SPEND LOT ON MEDICINES AND TREATMENT.

6.IN THIS MATTER SEVERAL WRIT PETITIONS AR PENDING FOR YEARS IN VARIOUS HIGH COURTS IN THE COUNTRY WHICH ARE YET TO COME UP FOR HEARING AND JUDGEMENT. THIS PROCESS MAY TAKE MANY MORE YEARS AND  BY THAT TIME EVEN THE PRESENTLY LIVING OLD AGED PENSIONERS MAY LEAVE THIS WORLD.

7. BY WAY OF ANNEXURES, I AM ATTACHING TWO JUDGEMENTS ON WRIT PETITION AND APPEAL, PRONOUNCED BY THE HONBLE HIGH COURT OF RAJASTHAN WHICH ARE SELF EXPLANATORY. IN THIS CONTEXT, I MAY MENTION THAT DELAY DEFEATS JUSTICE AND JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED.. I HUMBLY AND RESPECTFULLY PRAY  YOU TO TAKE INTO COGNIZANCE THIS PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION PETITION ON PRIORITY AND ISSUE SUMMONS TO MINISTRY OF FINANCE,GOVT.OF INDIA,CHAIRMEN OF PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS AND THE INDIAN BANKS ASSOCIATION TO HEAR THEIR ARGUMENTS. THEY SHOULD KNOW THAT THE SITUATION IN WHICH I AM PLACED NOW, WILL HAVE TO BE FACED BY THEM. LET THEM KNOW THIS CLEARLY. NOW THEY DONT UNDERSTAND THIS AND DONT CARE TO LISTEN TO OUR GRIEVANCES NOR READ OUR REPRESENTATIONS.


       I THOUGHT IT FIT TO APPROACH THE HIGHEST JUDICIAL AUTHORITY OF THE COUNTRY IN ORDER TO GET QUICK JUSTICE AND HENCE THIS PETITION.
