Annual Transfers 2013: DDM Postings
Please refer to new transfer policy vide Circular no. NB/HRMD/PA/5298/ST-51/12-13 dated 19/03/2013 according to which the annual transfers 2013 have been affected to. In this connection we bring to your kind notice the following-
We were surprised to note that as many as 28 (32 %) of the DDM postings have been given to grade ‘A’ officers, 43 (48 %) to grade ‘B’ officers and 16 (20 %) to grade ‘C’ officers. Though NBOA has been always of the view that DDM postings may be given to only grade ‘C’ or senior grade ‘B’ officers, keeping in view that the LDM in the district is generally of scale III/IV and most of the district level meetings are attended by senior bank (Regional Managers, CEOs of DCCB/RRB) and government officials (Commissioner, Collectors, CDOs, ADMs, Exec Engrs etc.). Not only this in almost all the cases the DDM has to interact with these officials as also public representatives. In fact, DDM offices have been our flagship office and have been considered as USP of NABARD. Diluting the status of DDM office does not augur well with organizational need and corporate image. It will also jeopardize the already sagging career progression of officers.
Furthermore, is it not an irony that the job profile of grade ‘C’ officers and grade ‘A’ officers at the district level has been put at par? In view of the above we request the bank to post only grade ‘C’ and senior grade ‘B’ officers as DDMs.
