Q. Problem regarding pension

Hello Sir/madam
I am a retired bank employee I got retirement in Aug 2016. I didn't opt for pension initially as my bank (Bank Of India) was asking for some funds for availing pension.
As I was little short on funds at that time I didn't avail pension but now i have funds and I am willing to give it to bank and get my pension started. Recently bank proposed an offer to avail pension for retired bank employee in exchange of funds but it turned out that it was for those employees who were suspended.
I am advised that I can avail pension as it's my legal right ......i want a professional opinion in this matter that what kind of legal procedure should I follow to get my pension started.....approximately how much time will the procedure take and how much will it cost me

A. Dear Client,
One need to your papers closely before saying anything.On the whole you can
do the following:
1.File a Writ petition in the High Court for giving direction to your bank to
complete your paperwork within certain time frame which will be blessing.
2.Approach your Bank to do it faster.
3,File a Petition before a Banking Ombudsman ( there must be one near by or at least one in every state)

A. If you know your PPO number then write to the commissioner of the employee provident fund and pension department for immediate release of pension. Alternatively you can approach the grievance redressal officer (ombudsman) of BOI for the commencement of your pension and other benefits along with interest.
