In view of the positive role played by the Officers Organizations there is a need to
revise the existing arrangements as regards the special leave to the office-bearers
of the organizations. The existing arrangement is grossly inadequate in
comparison with the size and the growth of the banking industry and equally the
membership of the officers’ organization – the structure of the organization and
hence appropriate enhancement in the leave facility needs to be considered.
The senior office-bearers of the Officers’ organizations should have the duty off in
view of the fact that they will be dealing with all the personnel matters relating to
the officers’ fraternity and they may not be able to attend to their deskwork. If the
Office Bearers are denied this facility it would cause great harm to the officers’
organizations in the banks.
The Office-bearers of Associations should be extended immunity from
transfer/placement. The Central /State level office-bearers should be given dutyoff
on par with workmen organizations. The facility is due for review.
