Justice M Nagaprasanna reprimanded the bank and ordered it to recover the excess amount from “callous, lackadaisical and irresponsible” officials responsible for the payment. The HC said the bank cannot charge petitioner Delhi a single rupee.

” The petitioner, wife of an employee who died in harness, is a senior citizen and has been made to run from pillar to post, mentally harassed, first to set her pension right and then to get her account unblocked, ” the judge said.

Devi’s husband C Sudhakar was a second-division assistant in the DCP’s office in Bengaluru when he died on December 29, 2004. His wife has been getting a monthly pension of Rs 2,430 since December 30, 2004. The money was deposited in her family pension account with Syndicate Bank. But on November 7, 2016, bank officials told her that the account had been blocked because an excess payment of Rs 50,000 was made.
