‘A leader is like a shepherd’

  • ‘A leader is like a shepherd’
As a leader I have always endeavoured to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a consensus of what I heard in the discussion.
I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself. Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty but humility.

Retd IFS officials move court for pension parity

  • Hindustan Times (Delhi)

6th PAY COMMISSION Accuse govt of overlooking proposals of panel by drawing a line between two categories of officers

NEW DELHI: A group of retired Indian Foreign Services officers has moved the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), accusing the government of overlooking the original recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission by drawing a unilateral line between two categories of officers and giving one among them huge pensionary benefits.
Illustration: ABHIMANYU SINHA
The petitioners, who retired as under-secretaries and deputy secretaries from the ministry of external affairs (MEA), claimed that the government’s discriminatory decision has benefited officers who retired as directors — just one grade above the applicants — with a 74% hike in pensionary benefits. In comparison, the petitioners got a hike of just 21%.
The retired officers, who call this a gross violation of the right to equality, want the tribunal to quash the bifurcation done by the ministry of finance’s department of expenditure.
Though an under-secretary from the MEA has denied the allegations levelled by the petitioners, CAT has sought a response to the senior citizens’ petition from the finance ministry.
The direction came after the petitioners refused to accept the MEA’s response, stating that the ministry was never a party in the proceedings.
The petitioners took a strong objection to the under-secretary filing an affidavit in individual capacity.
According to the petition, the Sixth Pay Commission had — in 2008 — for the first time recommended pay bands for various categories of officers. The under-secretary and directorlevel officers were clubbed together with a pay-band of R15,600-R39,100.
However, when the government implemented the commission’s recommendations, it delinked the senior and director-level officials from pay-band three to move them to a higher grade of pay-band four.
The pay scale for the higher category was R39,200-R67,000.
SN Dixit, one of the petitioners, said it was wrong to prioritise one category of officials over the other because no special qualification or age requirement was needed for getting appointed to these posts. The officials, he said, get promoted as per seniority and vacancy.

The jharoo saga:

The jharoo saga: For the sake of the environment it's time to bid farewell to this domestic aide
By Chitra Narain | Nov 14, 2012, 12.00 AM IST

There have been four distinct stages in my 75-year association with the jharoo. First, the girlish impulse to emulate our sexy cleaning woman (i won't use the derogatory word "jamadar" commonly used in the Raj days). I thought then, that this was a most exciting profession, as she stooped low, jharoo in hand, casting come-hither glances at our platoon of servants and chaprasis, who would hover around her while she executed her task with the grace of a dancer.

Later, this fascination gave way to despair and anger, when married and a young householder, i would find dust and scraps in every nook and cranny. A favourite stow away place was under the only Mirzapuri carpet we owned, the pride of our railway colony bungalow. Needless to say, i was left to complete her work, since our cook made it clear that this was not his job. This was stage two of my jharoo story.

This lasted till i was well past middle age, lest you think that senior bureaucrat's wives reign in their households. By now our kids were married, and one son was living abroad. You can imagine my surprise when my daughter-in-law, in response to my query about what she would like me to bring for her, asked for a couple of jharoos! I protested, more out of the embarrassment of carrying jharoos alongside our fashionable strolleys. What would the Air India staff think of me - a senior official of Doordarshan!! As with kids, i had to yield to her insistence that she just couldn't do without them. "Thank you Ma, you're such a pet." That did it! On every trip thereafter, went these Indian brooms, across continents - to Moscow, to London, to...And even in the bleakest years, when every package of ours was turned upside down by customs sleuths searching for any and everything resembling a weapon, the jharoo sailed through majestically! End of stage three.

Begin stage four. The era of Copenhagen; the dawn of realisation of the impending death of our planet; the buzz words 'global warming'. Our beautiful earth cover being systematically wiped out, the desertification of the greens, the drying up of water springs, choking cities, the slow poisoning of all life. Now you may well ask, where does our humble jharoo fit into all this? Well, just ask your personal physician. Mine told me years ago to leave Delhi. Since it was not possible for me to comply, he has warned me that if i want to save whatever little is left of my lungs, i should get rid of the jharoo and just vacuum everything - floors, carpets, curtains et al. Henceforth no sweeping, no dusting, and that's final. So i get rid of my teary-eyed cleaning woman and hug my good old stack of jharoos goodbye. But what do i do on my morning walks? Regiments of safai karamcharis, armed with huge jharoos, like soldiers on the battlefield, attacking terra firma, throw up enormous gusts of dust in order to catch the odd bits of paper and harmless dry leaves, and in the process, sound the death knell to the lungs of aged morning walkers out to inhale some fresh CO2.

It's time for some radical thinking. How about the potentates of big cities - municipalities, urban development and environment planners - putting their heads to this vital problem, and looking for a less dangerous weapon of mass destruction than the jharoo. For a starter, i could suggest the rake. No, i do not mean the dissolute profligate, but the sturdy pole with a toothed bar like a huge comb, at the end, which easily combs out leaves and garbage without disturbing mother earth. It is both earth- and human-friendly. If this is acceptable, one can plan a farewell for our lovable faithful jharoo, who can tell us the 'inside story' of her life.

PS: It is learnt that at the next environment summit, jharoo and rake were sitting side by side. Jharoo was to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. Jharoo's impassioned plea was given a standing ovation and was widely reported in the world press. She bemoaned the fact that she had unwittingly become a tool in man's inhumanity to earth and to fellow humans. And here she broke down for unknowingly contributing to wrecking the health of the kind and gentle lady who had so lovingly given her a home she could call her own.

Pension Option for VRS Retirees (OSR)


IBA Circular : Pension Option for VRS Retirees (OSR)


Pension Option for VRS Retirees (OSR) 

Managing Committee of IBA has extend the benefit of exercising another option to join the Pension Scheme to those officers who had taken Voluntary Retirement from the Bank’s service on or after 29.6.1995 in case of Nationalised Banks / 26.3.1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India in terms of rules framed by each Bank’s Board...
We have reproduced the content of the circular and given below for your information...

Indian Banks’ Association

No.CIR/HR&IR/2012-13/G2/6213
November 9, 2012

Chief Executives of Member Banks which are parties to the Joint Note dated 27.4.2010 on Pension Option

Dear Sirs,

Joint Note dated 27.4.2010 with Officers’ Organisations for extending another option to join the Pension Scheme to those who did not opt for pension earlier

We would like to draw your attention to our Circular no.CIR/HR&IR/G2/665/90/2010-11/999 dated 10.8.2010 forwarding copies of the Settlement / Joint Note on extending another option for pension to the non-optees who were in the service of the bank prior to 29th September 1995 in case of Nationalised Banks and 26th March 1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India and continued to be in service on or after the said date and did not opt for pension earlier.

2. In terms of aforesaid Joint Note, another option for joining the existing Pension Scheme was extended under the following clauses to those officers who-

Clause-2(a): Were in the service of the bank prior to 29th September 1995 in case of Nationalized Banks / 26th March 1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India and continue in the service of the bank on the date of this Joint Note;

Clause-3(a): Were in service of the bank prior to 29th September 1995 in case of Nationalized Banks / 26th March 1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India and retired after that date and prior to the date of this Joint Note;

Clause-4: The family of those officers who were in the service of the bank prior to 29th September 1995 in case of Nationalized Banks / 26th March 1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India retired after that date and had died will be eligible for family pension.

Clause-5: The family of those officers who were in the service of the bank prior to 29th September 1995 in case of Nationalized Banks / 26th March 1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India, but have died while in service of the bank after that date will be eligible for family pension.

Clause-7: Officers who ceased to be in service on or after 29th September 1995 in case of Nationalized Banks / 26th March 1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India on account of voluntary retirement under special scheme after rendering service for a minimum period of 15 years, shall be eligible to exercise an option to join the Pension Scheme subject to the terms and conditions mentioned for retiring officers opting for joining the Scheme.

3. The Joint Note dated 27.4.2010 for extending another option for pension to the non-optees indicates the categories of employees eligible for another option. In accordance with the provisions contained in the Joint Note dated 27.4.2010. Banks had extended the benefit of exercising another option to join the Pension Scheme to the eligible category of employees within the prescribed time schedule. 

However, the Joint Note did not specifically include a provision for offering another option to join the pension scheme to those officers who took voluntary retirement. Consequently, a number of representations were made by such category of officers to banks / IBA / Government and many of them moved to court of law. Besides, representations have also been made by UFBU to resolve the issue.

4. The above matter has been engaging the attention of Government as well as IBA for quite some time. Accordingly, the Managing Committee of IBA at its meeting held on 30.10.2012 had decided that those officers who took Voluntary Retirement within the meaning and provision of Regulation 19(1) of Bank Officers’ Service Regulations, 1979 may be extended the benefit of exercising another option to join the existing Pension Scheme strictly in accordance with the terms and conditions laid down in the Joint Note dated 27.4.2010.

5. We are, therefore, to advise that the banks may, as decided by the Managing Committee of IBA extend the benefit of exercising another option to join the Pension Scheme to those officers who had taken Voluntary Retirement from the Bank’s service on or after 29.6.1995 in case of Nationalised Banks / 26.3.1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India in terms of rules framed by each Bank’s Board pursuant to the proviso to Regulation 19(1) of Bank Officers’ Service Regulations, 1979. Besides, the family of those officers who were in the service of the bank prior to 29.9.1995 in case of Nationalised Banks/26.3,1996 in case of Associate Banks of State Bank of India, retired after that date and had died thereafter will be eligible for another option to join the existing Pension Scheme for family pension. These categories of officers / family members are to be sanctioned the benefits in terms of Regulation-29 of Bank Employees’ Pension Regulations, 1995.

6. In extending the aforesaid benefits, all terms and conditions contained in Joint Note dated 27.4.2010 as enclosed with our letter no. CIR/HR&IRG2/665/90/2010-11/999 dated 10.8.2010 should be strictly adhered to.

7. No other category of officers outside the purview of Regulation 19(1) of Bank Officers’ Service Regulations, 1979 would be eligible to exercise another option to join the existing Pension Scheme.

Yours faithfully‚

NEWS FLASH-National Conference on Ageing

 The first everTwo days National Conference on Ageing which started here in N.Delhi Vigyan Bhawan on 6.11.2012 held by the Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment .

During the course of this Conference, we will deliberate on important issues relating to senior citizens for further strengthening our efforts to strive for an inclusive society - a society that embraces all ages. Our Government believes that the interface between the State and the Social Institutions in the care of the elderly forms an important area of intervention and needs to be addressed comprehensively. 



It is a well-known fact that the 21st century is witnessing a gradual transition to an ageing society all over the world. Ageing poses twin challenges. First, we need to ensure care and protection of the elderly so that they can lead a healthy, dignified and productive life. Second, the older people must be looked upon as partners in progress rather than as a burden on the society, which is the case if their existence is seen from the prism of contribution to the GDP.

 Ministers of ten States along with Ms Selja MOS GOI MOSJE Joined the lively discussion on Financial, Social, Health care and other dominant issues of Sr. Citizens.
