Unsavouray issues at Kolkata

Dear Gouranga ,
 
I have come to know that a small issue of police reaching the Kolkata office on strike day (02/09/2016) has been blown out of proportion by the NBEA, Kolkata Unit. That inspite of the fact that you and CGM of the WB RO have very tactfully handled the situation and neither the officers or the management has made any deliberate attempts to disrupt the strike call given by the NBEA.
 
AINBOA has always stood by the Trade Unions as and when any occassion has arisen in the larger interest of the banking Industry and to also foster the fraternity among the officers and employees of our own organisation.

However, we are pained to note uncalled for, unneccessary and unfriendly rants against the officers of Kolkata Unit by the local leadership of the NBEA. Incidentally, avoidable issues were also raked up by NBEA's Orissa unit on strike day, however timely intervention by NBEA's central unit office-bearers somehow diffused the situation. You will agree that though we are all for unity and fraternity among the officers and employees of the bank, but any attempt to wrongfully malign and hit at the dignity of the officers community cannot be accepted.
 
We also very strongly resent the medelling into the internal affairs of  NABARD by an Ex-Chairman of NABARD. Incidentally, he was the person who did maximum damage to the parity issue when he was heading the NABARD and many of the decisions taken by him still pinch our organisation.

AINBOA, therfore, calls upon its membership to not to succumb to threats of any kind and do not allow anyone to take a dig at your dignity and honor. The entire AINBOA across the country is and will always stand with our fraternity be it at Kolkata , Bhubneshwar or any other part of the country.

Kindly keep me posted with the developments on the issue.

Fraternally Yours ,

Dr D S Chauhan

Officers on Agitation Path : Allotment of Quarters at Raipur

CHIEF GENERAL MANAGER (HRMD)                                                                                            06/09/2016
NABARD , HEAD OFFICE
MUMBAI
 
Dear Sir ,
                     Officers on Agitation Path : Allotment of Quarters at Raipur
 
We have been informed by our Raipur unit that the officers are agitated and are resorting to peaceful and democratic protest to express their grievance in respect to forced shifting to residential quarters at Naya Raipur.
 
Sir , we have been time and again bringing to the notice of the bank that the quarters at the Naya Raipur are not in habitable conditions due to non availability of basic infrastructure within reachable distances. As the location is bereft of even basic medical facilities (such as doctors clinics , medical stores and or even a Primary Health Centre ) , public or private transportation, provision stores and other daily requirement stores such as milk etc. it would be very very difficult for the officers and their families to cope up with the situation. More so the distance of the residential site from the main city is app.20 kms. making the commuting for school going children as also the aged dependents , in case of needs , to city , next to impossible.
 
AINBOA has discussed the issue and submitted memorandum to the bank on numerous occasions including during the last Joint consultative Committee meeting , but in-spite of assurances from the bank , nothing concrete has come out.
 
In the circumstances the officers of Chattisgarh RO are left with no other choice but to resort to agitation and the All India unit of the AINBOA alongwith it all other units are in solidarity with Raipur unit.
 
Meanwhile we have decided to send a delegation of office-bearers to Raipur on 22/09/2016 to take a first hand account of the situation and accordingly decide the further course of action on the issue, if required.
 
We, therefore, request you to favourably intervene  so that the industrial harmony is restored immediately at Raipur.
 
Thanking you
 
Yours Sincerely ,

Mass Scale reduction in PAR MARKS – Grades D and E


05 September 2016
Dear Members ,

We have been approached by many a grade 'D' and 'E' officers from some specific ROs and HO departments in respect of their PAR review marks for the year 2015-16. We are pained to note the state of affairs in this regards.

AINBOA has already taken up the matter with the bank and I am sure that Hon'ble chairman shall, as in the past, will take remedial steps to the satisfaction of the aggrieved officers.

On the request of the AINBOA, the bank has extended the date for preferring appeals to 06/09/2016 from 02/09/2016. I call upon all the aggrieved members to make use of the official grievance redressal system by preferring the appeals within the prescribed time period.

All of us will agree that it is a painful experience for any officer but as office-bearers of the AINBOA and also as one of your NABARD Parivar members we call upon each of you to face the situation with patience, maturity and sagacity and do not resort to any step which shall be counter productive and harmful to ourselves.

Rest assured, like last year, this year too AINBOA will ensure justice and we are sure that the present management, specially the Chairman, shall see reason and logic in your appeals and met out the justice to each one of our members.

Thanking You

Fraternally yours

Mass Scale reduction in PAR MARKS – Grades D and E


CHIEF GENERAL MANAGER (HRMD)                                31/08/2016
NABARD , HEAD OFFICE
MUMBAI

Dear Sir ,

                       Mass Scale reduction in PAR MARKS – Grades  D and E

We are in receipt of many a representations from our members specially from some specific ROs and HO departments in respect of large scale reduction in PAR marks , downgrading of the PAR category (outstanding to above standard and above standard to standard ) and recording of adverse comments and remarks by the reviewing officer. Incidentally , this unilateral moderation of marks , change of category and recording of adverse comments has put these set of officers at a disadvantage vis-à-vis officers working in other ROs and HO departments where by and large such adverse moderation has not been done by the review officer concerned.

In light of the situation explained above we humbly request you to extend the date of  filing  the ‘Appeal’ from 02/09/2016 to 09/09/2016 as a large number of officers are contemplating filing of the ’Appeal’.

We also seek an audience, through your office, with the Hon’ble Chairman, NABARD , at an early date so that a delegation of AINBOA is able to present the fact and figures and also to request his favourable intervention on the matter.

Thanking you

Yours Sincerely ,

(Dr.D.S.Chauhan)

Update on Second Round of Negotiations with Management on 23 June 2016

The second round of discussions on the settelment of charter took place on 23/06/2016 at HO. Bank was represented by the DMD (HRD), CGM(MKM) , CGMs (Selvarajji and Sahooji) and other officers from HRMD and PPD. AINBOA was represented by the negotiation team comprising of President, VPs, GS, OS, ZS (Central) and Secretary (Bihar Unit).

The discussions were held in a very cordial atmosphere and bank has presented in the meeting the proposed details of revised Pay and Allowances. It was heartening to note that the proposed revision is as per the revised pay and allowances as prevailing in RBI.

Bank has also indicated that Pension Upgradation and Package on Compassionate Appointment will be taken up shortly and it will be prudent to wait for the same to settel at RBI. bank also indicated the PP to grade A and B at par with RBI and as demaded by the AINBOA is an internal issue and hence it is being dealt with seperately.

AINBOA has taken time upto 27/06/2016 for reverting back to the bank on the proposed revised pay and allowances. The idea is to go threadbare into the banks proposal in order to ACHIEVE COMPLETE PARITY WITH RBI IN ALL RESPECTS, before according the final acceptance.

AINBOA has also indicated that the issue of Pension and Compassionate Package  is of utmost importance to the officers fraternity and that while we do appreciate the bank's stance to wait for RBI to act on it. It is imperative on part of NABARD to set the ball rolling by concurrently examining the issue and iron-out the existing anamolies in both the pension Scheme as also the Compassionate Package vis-a-vis that prevailing in RBI. The bank's response to this demand of ours was favourable.

AINBOA has also strongly demanded settlement of PP to grades 'A' n 'B" officers at par with that in RBI issue before and/ or along with the settlement of Charter as it has been already overdelayed. The bank has assured to settle the soon.

Other issues such as ways and means to increase the organisational productivity, use of access control system to mark the attendance of officers and lowering the number of spells of leave for counting towards bad leave record (on line to that prevailing in RBI) were also discussed in detail and AINBOA has ensured that legitimate interest of the officers community on these accounts are not compromised. Though on principle agrement has been reached on these issues, it has been further decided that HRMD will discuss the issue further with AINBOA before issuance of operational instructions.

FRIENDS , WE ARE HAPPY TO NOTE THAT  CHAIRMAN , DMDs AND OTJHER SENIOR EXECUTIVES OF THE BANK ARE VERY POSITIVE AND FAVOURABLY INCLINED TOWARDS AN EARLY SETTELMENT OF CHARTER  OF DEMANDS AND OTHER ISSUES. WE ARE SURE THAT BANK WILL BE TAKING PRO-ACTIVE STEPS TO ENSURE IMPLIMENTATION OF  THE CHARTER OF DEMANDS VERY SOON.

HOWEVER , IT IS STILL A LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE WE CAN FINALLY SAY THAT 'ITS DONE'...SO MEMBERS ARE REQUESTED TO REMAIN  UNITED AND VIGILANT. WE ALSO ONCE AGAIN REQUEST  EACH ONE OF YOU NOT TO GIVE ANY CREDENCE TO HEARSAY AND RUMOURS AND DISCOURAGE AND UNDERMINE SUCH MALACIOUS AND COUNTER PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITIES.

FRIENDS , REST ASSURED THAT INTEREST  & DIGINITY  OF EACH AND EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF AINBOA SHALL BE PRESERVED AND ENHANCED WITH THE ACTIVE SUPPORT OF EACH ONE OF YOU. WE ALSO, AS HITHERTO, CONTINUE TO WORK, WITH ADDED ZEAL, FOR THE UPWARD PROGRESS OF OUR GREAT ORGANISATION....NABARD.

WITH FRATERNAL GREETINGS

Charter of Demand - Discussion with Management

Dear Secretary

Discussions with Bank on Charter of Demands

In continuation to our submission of  Charter of Demands (Effective 01/11/2012 to 31/10/2017) and subsequent letter to the bank requesting settlement of Charter at par with that been settled and implemented in RBI , the first round of Discussions were held between Bank and AINBOA today at HO , Mumbai.

Sri Amlorapavanathan , DMD and Sri H. R. Dave , DMD led the negotiations team from the Banks’ side comprising of Sri M.K.Mudgal , CGM(HRMD)  , Sri S. Selvaraj , CGM , Sri A.K.Sahoo , CGM , GMs , DGMs and officers from   HRMD and PPD. The AINBOA team comprised of the President , VPs , GS , OS , ZS(C) and Secretary Patna Unit. The discussions were held in a very cordial atmosphere. Both the DMDs complimented the Officers and staff of NABARD for their sincerity and sense of purpose which has led to NABARD achieving newer heights  and making NABARD a financially strong DFI. It was also emphasised by them that we should not rest on the laurels and should strive to increase our efficiency and productivity further. They also indicated that it would be in fitness of things if the settlement is reached quickly.

President of the Association , initiating the discussion , emphasised the need and justification for settlement of the charter at par with that in RBI and requested the bank to hasten the process. General Secretary , AINBOA , thereafter requested the bank to adopt that  technology only which should be user friendly and increase the efficiency of the organisation alongwith the ease of operations. He also requested the bank to strengthen the systems and procedures so that the officers can carry out their duties fearlessly without being exposed to professional risks , specially on account of increased business related interaction with NGOs , CBOs etc.. Thereafter the GS made a presentation on the justification and financial sustainability of the revised Pay & Allowances. The points made by the Association were well received by the house. It was agreed upon by the Association that officers community , as hitherto , will sincerely and efficiently contribute to the development and strengthening of NABARD-both financially as well as a Development oriented organisation. Bank also agreed to provide conducive atmosphere alongwith the motivational factors to its officers so as to achieve the corporate goals. A few of the issues have been flagged by bank as also the Association , which require further deliberations and as such it was decided that bank will have further discussions with the Associations on the issue and the meeting will be convened shortly.

The issue of settlement of Charter of Demands is moving in a right and favourable direction. We request the membership to have patience and neither believe nor involve themselves in any uncalled for discussions/rumours etc. as it may prove counterproductive We will keep the membership apprised on the issue from time to time.

With Fraternal Greetings

Yours Sincerely ,
