It is a matter of great proud for AIBRWA that a well educated, highly experienced and well connected with the ground realities of retirees of all Banks, in true sense a dedicated person like Mr J.N.Shukla has given his kind consent to render his valuable services as a PATRON to our Association. He started his banking voyage merely as a clerk in 1969 from Dena Bank from Bhopal but within a span of few years of service he through his nature of hard work, dedications and sincerity, he touched all peaks of leadership in banking which included his recognition as Vice- President of MPBEA, Bhopal from1972 to 1975, as State Office Bearer of UPBEU( Oldest State Federation of AIBEA ) for more than 3 decades, as V.P., Secretary and then Chairman of All India Dena Bank Co-ordination Committee, worked as General Secretary of Dena Bank Staff Association U.P. since its foundation in 1985 to 2009 which he relinquished after retirement. He is also rendering his precious time and services as a Chief Editor to House Journal of UFBEU since 1986. Since 2014 he has been continuously engaged as a head of Forum of Bank Pensioner Activists, Prayagraj. The Forum is totally dedicated to the cause of Bankmen irrespective their status as Working or retired & Banking, with primary focus on national issues as first priority.
