CEC Meeting - 10-11 April 2014 - Resolutions


The Central Executive Committee (CEC) of NBOA in its meeting held on 10 – 11 April 2014 at Mumbai resolved to submit the following resolutions to the bank:

Resolution No. 1:
Vacancies in Grade ‘C’

The vacancies in Grade ‘C’ as assessed by the CEC is given below with break-up:

Promoted from ‘C’ to ‘D’
44 (28 after 30 April but before 31 December 2014)

Even if the officers retiring after 30 April 2014 (28 in numbers) and officers whose promotion from Grade ‘C’ to ‘D’ is kept in sealed covers (10 in numbers) are not taken into account, the minimum vacancy in Grade ‘C’ comes to 266. On an average, the vacancies work out to 100 or less per year and considering that the Bank had promoted on an average 150 officers from Grade ‘B’ to ‘C’ in the preceding panel years (2009, 2010 and 2011) before filling vacancies in Grade ‘C’ were abruptly stopped from panel year 2012 onwards. CEC resolves to request the bank to accordingly initiate the process of promotion of officers from grade 'B'to Ç'as was promised by the chairman at the meeting held with AINBOA on 15 January 2014.
Resolution No 2:
Stagnation in Grades ‘B’ and ‘C’
CEC expresses its concern that approximately 1500 plus officers out of a total of 2700 officers are stuck up in Grades ‘B’ and ‘C’ and have little or nothing to look forward to in terms of career progression. CEC is of the view that such a large segment of demotivated officers is neither in the interest of the organisation nor to that of the officers’ community. CEC, therefore, urges upon the bank to consider a long term amicable solution, in consultation with AINBOA, to this ever increasing HR problem. CEC is of the view that an honorable and acceptable Exit Policy be put in place for the officers in Grade ‘B’ and ‘C’ to opt for and other avenues such as long term posting/placement at their choice centre/s in lieu of career progression may also be considered as one of the likely solutions.
Resolution No 3:
Pension Updation and upgradadtion at par with RBI

Now that the draft Staff Rules for statutorization as desired by Government of India has been submitted to the Department of Financial Services (DFS), Ministry of Finance, Government of India, the Bank Management may pursue with them vigorously to clear the pending pension updation (including re-opening of pension option) which is affecting a large number of retirees who have lost their income to the rising inflation. It’s pertinent to mention here is that most of the senior officers who had retired nearly twenty years ago draw much less pension (almost half) than an officer in Grade ‘A’ or a Group ‘B’ cadre who retires today. The Bank Management also may pursue with GoI for clearance of Family Pension updation and Twenty Years as Qualifying Service for Full Pension which was cleared for the employees and officers of RBI in January 2013 – long before the draft Staff Rules for statutorization was submitted by them – and which has no bearing on the pension updation controversy as such. It’s an open fact that the families of most of our deceased colleagues live a life of penury in the absence of a decent pension which is much less than the family pension of an employee of Government of India and almost all of the State Governments.
