Dear General Secretary,

7th Bi-partite Wage Settlement

Please refer to your letter dated 12/01/20047 on the captioned subject whereby you have called upon AINBOA to join hands with AINBEA in achieving our mutual organisational goals. We welcome your stand on the issue and we, like in the past, are all for a coordinated and joint action/ effort on the captioned issue.

You may be aware that AINBOA too is making efforts and pressing for early settlement of its charter of demands (2012-17) and we too have chalked out an elaborate program starting 20/01/2017.

Therefore it would be in fitness of things and in the interest of NABARD, its officers and its employees if both the associations can synergise their resources and resolve to jointly proceed ahead on the matter.

We, therefore propose to put in place a ‘Coordination Committee’ comprising of office bearers of AINBEA and AINBOA to formalize the things.

With fraternal Greetings

Yours Sincerely,


(Dr D S Chauhan)
General Secretary

Dear Friend

7th Bi-partite Wage Settlement

As you are aware All India NABARD Employees’ Association (AINBEA), signed a draft settlement on 05th July 2016 on wage and service conditions of Group B & C staff. The draft settlement and proposals regarding the wage revision of officers of NABARD got approved in the Board of Directors of NABARD on 13th July 2016. It was sent to Government of India for approval on 22nd July 2016.

We have waited for around five months for the final approval of the Government and settlement. But it did not happen and AINBEA was forced to go on agitation from 29th November 2016. We already had four rounds of demonstrations. AINBEA held its Office Bearers Meeting at Mumbai on 11th and 12nd January 2017, we had detailed discussions on the issues and decided to step up our agitational programme to the next level. We had decided to have a March to Parliament on 07th February 2017 and a One Day Strike during last week of March 2017 alongwith other agitational programmes.

We feel that it is better to have coordinated joint action by both our Associations in the coming days on this issue in the large interest of the institution and the entire staff of NABARD. We hope, you will understand the spirit of this letter and we can go ahead in a coordinated movement.

With greetings

Fraternally yours

Status of Writ Petition on Merger Case in Mumbai High Court

Dear Friends,

The WRP 2872/ 2012 was called for hearing yesterday, 23.11.2016 in Mumbai High Court. The hearing lasted for one and half hours.

Association’s advocate, Shri Sandeep V Marne submitted our arguments before the hon’ble court. He had explained the two merger took place in NABARD and the different considerations seniority in both the occasions. He added that the merger was made in accordance with a mere policy change and no amendment was made to the rule and as such approval from RBI and Central Govt. was not obtained and explained (i) the issues of putting Economics services in  the top of the seniority list and (ii) reduction of chances of promotion.

Our counsel had empathetically argued that Supreme Court decision on the merger are clear that the merged entities are always placed below the existing employee of parent cadre in so much as to maintain interest in seniority at the time of entry in the organisation.

The bank has argued that the merger was put in place to bring uniformity in the promotion policy as well as to deregularise divisions like, TSD, Rajbhasha, Economics, legal, etc. Other explanation was, these divisions were not part of the NABARD’s major role- rural development. Further it was also said that the merger had increased the scope of promotions! There was also a mention that not a single officer, who has switched over form TSD is in service after 2015.

Hon’ble Judges, Shri Dharmadhikari and Shri Colabawalla had closed the hearing and announced the order will be issued later.

Since the hearing is over, lets hope for a favourable order soon.

Lets stand together,

AINBOA Zindabad!

Meeting with Top Management – Charter of Demands – 04.11.2016

Office bearers of AINBOA led by President called on the Chairman, DMDs, and CGM HRMD on 4 November 2016. After the introductory remarks by the Organizing Secretary, the President expressed his anxiety, on behalf of AINBOA, over the delay in revision of pay and allowances of officers of NABARD.
Top Management also agreed to the concern expressed by the AINBOA over the delay and said that they are making all out efforts to expedite the issue at the Ministry level for getting their approval. The Chairman indicated that he was confident that the charter will be settled as per the aspirations of AINBOA. The members are requested to refrain from floating of unnecessary and uncalled rumours.
President thanked the Management for deferring the shifting of officers to New Officers Quarter at Naya Raipur and form a Joint Committee to look into the matter. The Chairman expressed that all necessary infrastructure has been made available and at least Senior Officers can shift to new quarters. He also said if officers want additional support such as security, medical, etc can be provided. AINBOA expressed the likely difficulties which arise if officers are shifted to Naya Raipur irrespective of the fact that whether they are seniors or juniors and requested the Management to considerate and sympathetic view on the matter.
AINBOA while expressing thanks to the Management for having a sensitive and judicious view on the appeals made by the officers in respect of their PARs and brought to the notice of the Management that there are still few cases especially from West Bengal and
Jharkhand ROs having serious implications on the career of the officers which requires an early look so that undeserving remarks are expunged and ratings are restored.
General Secretary would be visiting Mumbai on 9th November 2016 to address the retired officers of NABARD and firm up our organizational steps with all India officer bearers to expedite settlement of charter of demands. The details will be communicated to all the units.

Letter to Bank on Naya Raipur Issue


AINBOA No.     /2016-17             01  November   2016

The Chief General Manager
HRMD, Head Office

Dear Sir
Occupation of 54 flats & 6 Bungalows at Naya Raipur

Please refer to the Endt. No.H-1696 dated 26 October 2016 received from DPSP on the captioned subject.  In this connection, we submit the following for your consideration.
AINBOA is not in agreement with the content and spirit of DPSP letter.     Though the Bank has indicated that the financial resource have already been spent and therefore property cannot be let unoccupied “ endlessly”, the AINBOA had indicated that at present and in near future all facilities required for conducive living that is Security, transportation, health related services, distance from markets/Schools, etc. are not available.  It was also pointed out that property is located outside municipal limit, very sparsely populated and none of the Corporate Body have occupied their residential units.  In view of the above,  it may  not be possible for officers to shift immediately. 

So, as a first measure Bank should put on hold shifting of officers. Meanwhile, Bank will inspect the site along with the representatives of AINBOA and further action may be decided as per the committee Report.
Accordingly,  AINBOA shall be nominating one of its representativesto the Committee.

Please confirm.

Yours faithfully

(Dr. AKS Chauhan)
Organizing Secretary
