of every month. The respondents are directed to ensure that every incumbent

should get the pension from the Bank in first week of every month. As and when

there is a revision of dearness allowance and revision of pay scales then the effect

of that revision should be ensured promptly and the fixation should be released as

far as possible within two months of the so called revision but that revision shall

not suspend the payment of pension at

be released to the incumbent promptly within a period of two weeks.

With the above observations, the writ petition is disposed of.
