Com. S .K. Bandlish,
We draw your attention to IBA’s communication to member banks dated 9th instant on the captioned subject.
On behalf of UFBU, after consultation with all the constituents, suggestions in this regard were sent to IBA on 17th September, 2018. But we find that most of the suggestions, barring room rent and separate tiers for sum assured, have been ignored and irony of the thing is that IBA did not feel it necessary to consult UFBU before sending communications to member Banks. We feel that on behalf of UFBU we should lodge protest against this attitude of IBA. On the issue proper, we suggest that wide difference between the quantum of premium for the serving employees which is borne by the bank and the quantum of premium to be paid by the retirees has to be minimized so that it is affordable by all the retirees. Secondly there must be separate rate of premium for single beneficiary retirees. Same quantum of premium by a retiree with spouse and by another retiree without
spouse is totally irrational.
We request you to take up the matter with IBA once again so that the suggestions of UFBU given to IBA through its letter dated 17th September 2018 are duly addressed.
Anticipating quick response,
