After completing continuous untiring service of more than 30 to 40 years for the growth and development of our beloved Bank by living together as one family and the passion to be part of our bank’s growth and know the relevant developments in our bank and desire to be in touch with our colleagues, led to the formation of this Forum for the retired Executives of Indian Bank at the instance & initiative of our erstwhile CMDs Shri M. Gopalakrishnan & Shri T.S.Raghavan.
At short notice, 20 Retired executives based at Chennai, assembled for the first meeting at Suguna Vilasa Sabha Club at Anna Salai, Chennai on 21st June 2005.
Subsequently, our group gathering was named as Forum of Indian Bank Retired Executives (FIBRE). The retired Executives from the Grade of AGM and above and eAB executives retired after 01/04/2020 (as Indian Bank Retirees) are eligible to become Life Members of this Forum. Mission statement of FIBRE is as follows:
To make it an effective Forum
So as to ensure that the Retired Executives
Get further opportunity to facilitate in the
Image building of our Bank and in infusing
An affable spirit of camaraderie and
Function as informal but an Effective well-knit
Group of Members of Indian Bank Family.
As on date, the Forum has 523 Life members, which increased from 369 at the time of publication of the last directory in June 2017. The number is steadily increasing with many executives retiring in the recent years and nonmembers enrolled during the current year. Members of the Forum meet once in a quarter and so far FIBRE has 56 such gatherings at Indian Bank Management Academy for Growth and Excellence (IMAGE), courtesy Indian Bank. Few families get together meetings were conducted. FIBRE organized tour programs in India and abroad and Members and their family participated.
We used to invite dignitaries of various fields for interaction in our meetings. It has been found useful by the members. We obtained PAN number (AAAAF3441P) for our forum for submission of Income Tax returns periodically, so as to raise funds which can be utilized for various service activities to the needy people in the society. We strongly believe in UNITY which will bring out all success in all our endeavours.
FIBRE donates amounts to meet social objectives and at times of calamities for relief work.
With about 16500-man years of experience in banking domain and social development, we strongly believe in contribution for the social development.
