CIRCULAR LETTER No.27/200/2016/33

24-5-2016

TO ALL OFFICE BEARERS, STATE FEDERATIONS AND ALL INDIA BANKWISE ORGANISATIONS:

Dear Comrades,

Reg: Compassionate ground appointments in the Banks

Units are aware that despite the guidelines from the Government of India, some  of  the  Banks  are  not  implementing  the scheme  on  compassionate ground  appointment  properly  both  in  regard  to  eligibility  and  also  on relaxations in qualifications. In the Associate Banks, even the Govt. guidelines have not been placed before the Boards of the respective Banks and unilateral instructions of the SBI are being adhered to whereby compassionate ground appointments are being denied.  From AIBEA we have taken up the matter with the Finance Minister. Arising out of the recent UFBU meeting, UFBU also has addressed a letter to the Finance Minister and same is reproduced herein for the information of our units.

With greetings,

Yours Comradely,

C.H. VENKATACHALAM

GENERAL SECRETARY

UFBU Letter to Finance Minister

IBA/GOVT/2016/139

Date: 21st May, 2016

Shri Arun Jaitley,

Hon’ble Minister of Finance,

Government of India,

New Delhi.

Respected Sir,

SCHEME FOR COMPASSIONATE APPOINTMENT IN PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS

We are thankful to you for restoring the Compassionate Appointment Scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) vide your letter D.O.F.No.18/2/2013-IR  dated the 7th August   2014,  conveying   the  approval   of  the  Government   to  open   the Compassionate Appointment in PSBs on the lines of Central Government with a request  to the Indian  Banks’  Association (IBA)  to take  appropriate  action  to circulate the revised scheme to all PSBs for adoption with the approval of their respective Boards.   Further, the decision of the Government  was conveyed by Ministry of Finance vide letter F.No.18/2/2013-IR dated 05.12.2014 that all PSBs can  have both  the  options  i.e.,  compassionate  appointment  or  payment  of lumpsum ex-gratia amount.

2.      It will note be out of context to mention here that the issue of restoration of compassionate  appointment scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) has been under  discussions  between UFBU  and  IBA  since  the  last  ten  years  and  in accordance with  the  suggestion  of  Department  of Financial  Services,  a joint proposal on broad parameters was submitted by IBA for approval of the Government.  The sustained struggle by UFBU ended with your kind intervention resulting in approval as above from the Government of India.

3.      However, we are shocked to observe that the managements  of some of the banks have unilaterally decided to continue, with certain modifications,  the scheme for compassionate  appointment  in exceptional  circumstances  only and the scheme for payment of Ex-gratia Lumpsum Amount in lieu of Compassionate Appointment,  totally ignoring the approval of Government of India to open the Compassionate Appointment Scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) on the lines of Central Government.

4.      Further,  the  concessions  / relaxations,  as provided under  the  scheme envisaged by the Government, as applicable to Central Government employees, such as exemption from the requirement  of minimum educational  qualification etc., have not been extended  in the Banking Industry,  thereby  making them ineligible and denying the appointments.

5.      The unilateral decisions of the managements  as above, is not only total ignorance   of   the   directives   of   the  Government   of   India   to   open   the Compassionate Appointment  Scheme  on the lines of Central  Government  but also deliberate utter disregard to the sustained struggle of bank workmen and officers for nearly a decade in getting the scheme approved by the Government.

6.      Hence,  we  earnestly  seek  your  kind  intervention  in  the  matter  and arrange  to appropriately  instruct  all the Public Sector Banks,  which  have  not introduced the Compassionate Appointment Scheme on the lines of Central Government, as approved by the Government of India and advised by you and also on provision of concessions / relaxations as applicable to Government employees, under the compassionate appointment scheme.

Please   acknowledge   receipt   of   this   communication   and   advise   us   the developments in this regard.

With best regards

Yours sincerely,

(M.V.MURALI)

CONVENOR
