Annual Transfers 2013: Victimisation of NBOA Office-Bearers
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 note with great anguish that the bank has chosen to use the annual transfer exercise as a tool to victimize and punish the office-bearers of NBOA. We have noted that in almost all the cases the office-bearers of NBOA have not been given even the fourth choice of postings and in a particular case the officer bearer concerned have been transferred out even though he has not completed the normal length of stay at the concerned centre.
This trend of victimizing and putting the office-bearers of association to hardship was also observed during the Annual Transfers 2012 , but we decided to give a benefit of doubt to the management and desisted from registering our formal protest. However going by this year’s trend too, we are very sure that it is not an aberration but a designed move to harass and victimize the office-bearers and weaken the Association. If need be we can prove our point of view with hard data and facts.
Needless to say that that such steps on part of the bank will lead to deterioration of Industrial Harmony and we therefore urge upon that such discriminatory transfers be cancelled forthwith.
