Success in agitational programme
Our units at Saptagiri Gramin Bank continuously moved their management for
promotion/recruitment. GS, AIRRBEA led a delegation to Executive Director, Indian Bank on
10.01.09. The following vacancies have been approved by Union Bank after such negotiation.
Scale – I Officer
By direct recruitment 18 (Eighteen) Scale – I Officer.
By promotion from clerical cadre – 19 (Nineteen).
Direct recruitment – 54 (Fifty four) posts.
Promotion from Messenger cadre – 6 (Six) posts.
Our units in the following RRBs have been/are in continuous agitation mainly with the demand for
promotion from all cadres/recruitment to face the acute manpower crisis.
1. Joint Action Forum of our units at Tripura Gramin Bank.
2. Co-ordination Committee of our units at South Malabar Gramin Bank.
3. Baroda Rajasthan Gramin Bank Officers Association affiliated to AIRRBEA.
4. Joint Council of our units at Assam Gramin Vikash Bank.
5. Joint Council of our units at Andhra Pragathi Gramin Bank.
6. Joint Council of our units at Baroda Uttar Pradesh Gramin Bank.
7. Our Units at Surguja Gramin Bank.
8. Joint Forum at Jaipur Thar Anchalik Gramin Bank.
In case of serial no. 5, our units staged Dharna before the Central Office of Syndicate Bank. They
met with R.L.C. (Central) and G.M., Syndicate Bank at Manipal.
AIRRBEA has taken up the issues of all the above noted units with G.O.I./NABARD and Sponsor
Only State Bank of India amongst all the Sponsor Banks have not extended the benefit of
“Computer Allowance” (special pay). We have strongly moved S.B.I. with all relevant documents of
Govt. order, NABARD’s order, Bipartite Settlement, others Sponsor Bank’s order and other RRB’s
Delay in implementation of Computer Allowance
With deep concern we find that many RRBs still are in the process for extending such benefit and
they are yet to take a final procedure causing delay in implementation of such benefit. So ultimate
benefit is yet to reach the workman operating computer of some RRBs.
Vindictive Actions in RRBs
Bihar Khetriya Gramin Bank
The Management of Bihar Khetriya Gramin Bank dismissed General Secretary and Deputy General
Secretary of our Workman Unit as well as General Secretary and other 2 (two) office bearers of
Officers Association affiliated to AIBOC.
We strongly protested and took up the issue with NABARD and Sponsor Bank and could get it
reversed by the Board of Management but with deep concern we find that the same Board of
Management in its further review meeting again endorsed the decision for dismissal. Our unit has
decided to move both organizationally and legally. Our State Federation is in constant touch with
Sarva U.P. Gramin Bank
Chairman of this bank is directly involved in organizing our parallel unit both in Officers and
Workman and he has brutally transferred to distant places, not only our leaders but also
messengers, lady members, even handicraft.
Co-ordination Committee of our units in the RRBs sponsored by P.N.B. have seriously taken up this
issue with D.G.M. (RRB), P.N.B. on 02.03.09. GS, AIRRBEA has taken up this issues with C.M.D,
P.N.B. and GM (RRB), P.N.B.
Surguja Gramin Bank
The Chairman of this bank also is engaged in taking all vindictive actions against our
leaders/members, both officers and workman in connivance with his henchmen and this man is
directly promoting the interest of the members of parallel unit threatening our members.
Our units are strongly fighting against it.
Marathwada Gramin Bank and Aurangabad Jalan Gramin Bank sponsored by Bank of Maharastra
are going to be amalgamated immediately.
Migration of new member to our AIRRBEA
35 Officers of Jharkhand Gramin Bank have joined AIRRBEA from AIRRBOF (AIBOC) in the recent
Trade Union Convention in each district – 30th Anniversary of AIRRBEA
On the occasion of 30th Anniversary of AIRRBEA, our units at Bangiya Gramin Vikash Bank and
Paschim Banga Gramin Bank are going to complete the programme for holding Trade Union
Convention with the demands of AIRRBEA in each district of their respective area.
We have published such reports received from different State Federations but we are yet to
received report all other State Federations in the states of Orissa, Jharkhand, Northern Zone, North
East Region and Gujarat.
