    I really do not know why ministry of finances not considering updation of pension to retired bank employees

    • Ramachandran Suresh 1 year ago

      Retired Bank employees don’t have critical mass to make a vote Bank. The Liars of Finmin, said one thing inside parliament another out side. They pumped 44k crores to right the wrong Balance sheets, surprisingly all banks are back in black but do not have funds to pay increased pension like cent.govt employees. What a bunch of losers are we to vote this unholy lot of monkeys.
