I am working with SBI for 21 years. So far I knew that for going for VRS with pension 20 years pensionable service is required. Accordingly, I applied for VRS after that I came to know that for getting pension some other criteria is required to be fulfilled as per the following. Please advise me whether I shall get pension or not.
