AINBOA NATIONAL COUNCIL MEET


Dear Secretary,

It is proposed to convene National Council Meeting at Bhopal either on 26 & 27/03/2015 or on 08 & 09/04/2015, subject to availability of infrastructure and confirmation from the Bhopal Unit.

The decision to finalise the dates for holding the NC as per the above slots shall be taken at the office-bearers meeting to be held on 09/03/2015 at Chennai.

As GS, my personal opinion and view was/is that NC dates should not clash with the ongoing promotion process (B to C and subsequently A to B) as it may deny many/some of the office-bearers from attending the NC. However, the decision shall be taken as per the majority view on the issue from each unit in the true democratic essence.

You are therefore, requested to confirm yours and your units NC members availability/confirmation in attending the proposed meet for either or both the slots, as the case may be, to the undersigned latest by 27/02/2015, so that required decision may be taken accordingly.

Thanking you

Yours Sincerely,

Wage Settlement - Strike Call by NBEA on 07 January 2015

Dear Members,

Wage Settlement – Strike Call by NBEA on 07/01/2015


As all of you are aware that wage settlement issue in the banking industry has run into rough waters and IBA has been unreasonable and stubborn in its attitude towards reaching a negotiated agreement with the Trade Unions and Associations of the Public Sector Banks.
This entire stalemate has forced the Trade Unions and Associations to register their protest and agitate through certain constitutionally legitimate but stiff measures, Accordingly, the Trade Unions and Officers Associations of the PSU banks, cutting across the party affiliations, have decided to STRIKE WORK on 07/01/2015. NBEA, representative body of NABARD Employees has also decided to proceed on Strike on 07/01/2015, in support of the nation-wide strike in the banking industry. Keeping in view the legitimacy of the demands, our long term strategic relations with NBEA and other Trade Unions and Officers Association and fraternal cause, AINBOA has decided to EXTEND MORAL SUPPORT TO THE STRIKE CALL ON 07/01/2015 AS ALSO TO NBEA ON THIS ENDEAVOUR OF THEIRS.
Thus, we call upon our members –
1. Not to attend to any work which is normally assigned to and forms the job profile of Group ‘B’ & ‘C’ employees i.e. cleanliness and office maintenance operations, opening and closing of office premises, cupboards/almirahs, taking out and putting in of official documents/records, physical movement of cases/attendance registers, fax machine operations etc. etc.
2. As providing safe, unhindered and unrestricted entrance and exit to and from the office premises to the officers is the prime responsibility of the management, officers are requested not to enter into any physical or verbal duels with the agitating strikers for the purpose of entering into the office premises as it may lead to avoidable acrimony amongst the fraternity.
3. Office-bearers of the local NBOA units will stage a ‘DHARNA’, during the lunch hours on 07/01/2015 to express AINBOA’s support and solidarity with the NBEA and the banking fraternity. If invited, local office-bearers may, address the lunch time meeting/gate demonstration and/or before/after office hour meeting/demonstration to be held by NBEA.

Fraternally Yours,


(Dr D S Chauhan)
General Secretary

Head Office
Mumbai

Dear Sir

Submission of Assets and Liabilities details by
Public Servants u/s 44 of the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, 2013

Please refer to HO letter No.NB.HRMD.PA/6765-6827/AL Statement/2014-15 dated 10.12.2014 ) Circular No.247/HRMD-PA.14/2014) on the captioned subject instructing the officers to submit the required information as per prescribed proforma latest by 31.12.2014.  In this connection we request as follows –


  1. We append herewith a copy of the Gazette of India No.1765 dated 08.09.2014 on the subject matter.  As per the notification under reference that GoI has set up a committee to simplify the forms and process in which the public servants shall make the declaration so that the apprehensions raised towards the safety and security of the members particularly children of the public servant are adequately addressed to.
  2. Further, the same notification has indicated that in view of the setting up of the committee and the subsequent procedural requirements the time period prescribed for making the declaration in respect of Assets and Liabilities by a public servant has been extended to 360 days from the date on which the provisions of the Lokpal & Lokayukta Act, 2013 came into force i.e. 16.01.2014.
  3. We have also enquired from some of the Financial Institutions and Government Departments, including RBI, about the stand taken by them on the issue and we have come to know that other Public Sector Organisations, including RBI, have not issued any directions/instructions to their officers asking them to submit the declaration to their respective office/s.

In view of the above we request your good self that NABARD may also follow and tread the same path on this aspect as is being followed by others in the industry, including RBI and issue suitable instructions to put on hold the instructions issued on the subject matter vide HO Letter No.NB.HRMD.PA/ 6765-6827/ AL-Statement/2014-15 dated 10.12.2014 (Circular No.247/HRMD-PA.14/2014).

Thanking you and with sincere Regards

Policy for Recruitment, Succession Planning & Career Progression for Officers


Chairman

NABARD
 HO, Mumbai


Dear Sir,

Policy for recruitment, Succession Planning and Career Progression for Officers

Please refer to Head Office Circular No.219/HRMD.PA/6313/ST-1/2014-15 dated 13/11/2014 on the captioned subject.
In this connection, we very humbly, bring to your kind notice the following-
1.      At the outset, we thank you and the bank for agreeing to revisit and REFINE the preceding policy document on the subject matter, which has inter alia created a lot of complexities and industrial unrest in our august organization.
2.      We also place on record our gratitude for encouraging wide scale consultation on the subject matter in spite of the fact that merely 3% of the officers community responded directly to the bank in response to the solicitation for the feedback.
3.      Though many of our suggestions and feedback provided to the bank, collected through the mechanism of having a wide spread interaction through our GBs across the Units , has not found the favor of the management for being included in the current policy document , AINBOA does find the present policy a refined , better and transparent policy document in comparison to the earlier policy which spelt doom for natural and corporate justice forcing AINBOA to approach the Hon’ble High court of Mumbai for reprieve .
4.      We are especially thankful to bank for including the officers of other supporting services too within the ambit of the present policy.
5.       Sir, you will agree that though a Policy once framed should have a reasonable tenure, generally of 3-5 years, there always is a scope to rethink and improve upon it concurrently. We, therefore, very humbly and earnestly request you to re-consider the following aspects of the present Policy and take remedial decisions.
i)                    The calling ratio of 1:1.75 for fresh candidates, without any upper cap, for deciding the ZOC for promotions in grade ‘C’ to ‘D’ and above is very high, specially keeping in view that with reduction in eligibility tenure a fair and reasonable number of FRESH candidates along with REPEATER candidates will be available with the bank to have a fairly stringent selection process. Sir, you will agree, that without any upper cap on the calling ratio, besides diluting the seniority aspect and creating a wide spread demotivation, a situation will very soon arise in all grades that bank will not be able to find FRESH candidates to initiate the selection process. REPEATERS will outnumber FRESHERS by a great majority, to illustrate we provide a factual position which will be encountered in next 2/3 years in grade ‘D’ to ‘E’

Similar or worst scenario will emerge in case of Grade ‘C’ to ‘D’ and ‘E’ to

‘F’ promotion exercise during the next 2/3 years and upwards. Sir, you will agree that most of the officers presently and in next 2 to 3 years ZOC in grade C and grade D have reached this cadre after putting in 25 years plus service in NABARD and such large scale rejections at senior levels will lead to a simmering discontentment and demotivation at the senior executive and middle management levels. We, therefore request you to introduce a ‘safety cap’ in calling ratios by capping the ratio of Vacancy to All candidates (inclusive of Fresh & Repeat candidates) called at 1: 3, as was the provision in earlier policies.

ii)  The introduction of Trigger point mechanism is a welcome initiative of the bank and it vindicates our long pending demand of creating upgraded posts/vacancies to deal with the problem of stagnation. However, the pre-requisite of having a 9 years tenure holding FRESH candidate in the present grade to initiate the TRIGGER POINT PROCESS may kindly be looked into. Going by the present seniority and empirical facts the TRIGGER POINT mechanism will never be activated in next 6 to 8 years. Sir , you will appreciate that the present promotion policy has certain very stringent threshold criterion for earning promotion to next higher grade viz. PAR cut-offs , Written test cut-offs and Interview Cut Offs and coupled with the vacancy based descending order of merit criterion, it has been our experience , which can be validated by HRMD through hard data based facts , that many officers are devoid of career progression in spite of them obtaining scoring high levels of overall ratings (90%+). The trigger point mechanism is precisely need to address such situations. Sir , you will very kindly agree that endeavor of an organization is to provide actual career progression to its officer who are deemed to be up to the mark for earning a promotion and not merely to give them a chance to participate in the promotion process. We , therefore once again request you to make available the concept of Trigger Point mechanism to all the officers (irrespective of Fresh or Repeat candidates) who have completed 9 years in their respective grades and are otherwise found suitable for being considered for promotion to higher grade.

iii)                We also request you to introduce a training component for Written Test module in grade ‘C’ to ‘D’ for all the officers. This will not only help the officers in ensuring a better preparedness for the examination but will also be in tune with the practice being followed at RBI.
We , therefore, believe  that keeping in view historical perspective as also the past practices (prior to 2012 specifically) , adoption of systems & process as being followed  by RBI in its promotion policy, from time to time , will have a unanimous acceptance among all officers.
As such, AINBOA, therefore, once again requests you to consider adoption of promotion methodology as is being followed in RBI in respect of promotions process in NABARD in all grades, including in B to C and D to E as also in respect of ‘Calling Rate Ratio’.

Thanking you


Yours Sincerely,


(Dr. D S Chauhan)
General Secretary
