					entitled to a higher share of the profit of the Fank for the year 1969 than what was paid by, the Bank. They stated that in view of
the performance of the Bank in the year 1969, the Management should agree to the payment of bonus of not less than 12.5% as
against 8 1/3% already paid.

    The representatives of the Management stated that the demand for payment of bonus of 12.5% for the year 1969 was quite
unreasonable as it does not have any basis at all. However, to maintain good industrial relations, some sort of adhoc agreement
could be arrived at on the basis of the settlements regarding bonus for the years 1967 and 1968.

    The representatives of the Union pointed out that the bonus should always have a relation to the profits and progress and
considering what the Bank has achieved in the year 1969 and to satisfy the legitimate aspirations of the employees, the bonus
should have some relevance to the performance of the year.

     After discussing the matter at length, the represe ntatives of the Union said that for purposes of settlement of the claim of
the employees a payment of 1/5th of what has already been paid (i. e. Rs. 6,14,0001-) should be paid as additional bonus to
make the final payment at 10% of gross wages as bonus for the year 1969.

      The representatives of the Management informed that they would accordingly recommend to the appropriate authorities.

11.      Re : Promotions and Direct Recruitment to routine Officers, Cadre Grade IV:

      Discussions on the matter were inconclusive. It is agreed to resume the discussions in the forthcoming Joint Conference.

      -It is mutually agreed that the next Joint Conference shall be held at Madras on 19tb and 20th February, 1971.

1.   Re: Payment of Adequate Bonus to Employees of the Bank
     for the year 1970.

     The issue of payment of Bonus for 1970 was taken up for discussion.

     The representatives of the Management furnished the representatives of the Union all the relevant information about the working
results of the Bank for the year.

     Taking due note of the satisfactory progross made by the institution, the representatives of the Union emphasised that a payment
of 12.5yo of the gross wages earned by the employees during the year, as bonus for 1970 would meet the aspirations of employees

    The representatives of the Management pointed out that the suggestion of the Union is rather' far-fetched as such a payment can
never be made on the basis of the working results of the Bank.

     Keeping in view the working results of the Bank and having due regard to the payment of bonus made for the year in other
nationalised sector banks, the representatives of the Union made certain concrete proposals for purposes of Settlement of the
issue.

     The representatives of the management agreed to place the -said proposal before the Board which is meeting on 17.5.71
and immediately thereafter take up the matter with the Union for fixalisation.

             Allowance to these employees who Joined the Bank between 1-1-1970 and 31-1-1970 but absorbed as
             Probationary Clerks on or after 1-8-1979. This is not according to the provision contained in Paragraph 17 of
             the Second Bipartite Settlement, as all workmen who joined the service of Bank between 1-1-1970 and 31-7-
             1970 hav to be given the Temporary Adjustable Allowance. After discussing the matter, it is agreed that the
             employees who joined the Bank as Apprentices between 1-1-1970 to 31-7-1970 and absorbed as Probationary
             Clerks on or after 1-9-1970 will be given the Temporary Adjustable Allowance from the date of their

in force with regard to ap jp5intment of clerks as ~Special Assistalits
a clerk had to complete at least 7 years of service for being eligible
 for appointment as Special Assistant. Hence, Shri , Ramprasad
 should have been fixed in the Sth State in- the clerical - scale after
 giving weightage for 7 years service. Tlie representatives.of the
 Bank informed the Union that this would not be the correct basis
 as he is a new entrant in the Clerical cad ' re and he has been given

could be reached, a joint application be made to the Government

     I EXTENSION OF FACILITIES TO THE UNION:

     The representatives of the Union stated that the facilities that are being extended at present for the Union work are
inadequate in the context of vast changes that have taken place. They pointed out these facilities were extended to the Union in
the years 196566 and since then there has been materfid changes in the circumstances both in relation to the Bank and the
Union. Tn the context of the Bank's vast expansion' and increased staff strength, the Union's membership has grown
considerably large and activities become equally widespread. Furthermore as a responsible organisation, its obligations on all
spheres have also grown. It has, in these circumstances, become imperative for the Union to seek improvement / further
facilities to its representatives for Union work. Thay therefore desired to have the following facilities being extended:


i)      The Bank should provide oflice space in Bombay and must reimburse the rent paid towards the Union Office at
Madras, Bangalore and Calicut.

       ii) 9 Office-bearers of the URion should be released to attend to Union work,

      Iii) The number of representatives to represent the Union in the Joint Conference should be increased to 6 from the
           present number of 4.

      iv) The rates of travelling allowance and halting allowance payable to Office-bearers to attend the Joint Conference have
          to be raised.

     After elaborate discussions. the, Representatives of the Bank agreed to recommend to the appropriate authorities to extend
the following facilities :

i)       Releasing of 8 Office-bearers of Union as against the present 4.

      ii) Providing of furnished office accommodation of about 300 square feet with a telephone to the Union at Bxmbay
          (Rental / call charges for the telephone -to be borne by the Union.)

      iii) Increase of the number of representatives to represent the Union in the Joint Conference to 5 from the present number
           of 4.

    With regard to the increase in the rates of travelling and halting allowances, the representatives of the Bank desired the
matter being considered in all its aspects and as such it is mutually agreed to take up same for consideration later.

II. REVISION OF SETTLEMENTS WITH REGARD TO

Promotion of members of Subordinate staff to Clerical Cadre

       ii) Appointment of Clerks as special Assistants

      iii) Promotion and Direct Recruitment to the Routine Officers Cadre Grade-IV

     After discussions, two settlements-one in respect of Promotion of subordinate staff to the Clerical cadre and the other in
respect of-appointment of clerks as Special Assistants were arrived at. It is mutually agreed that the matter of revision of
Settlement with regard to Promotion and Direct Recruitment to 'the Routine Officers' Cadre Grade IV will be taken up for
discussion in the Joint Conference.

III      EMPLOYMENT OF SHRI H. K. DHEBAR, CLERK GIRCAUM AS A SPECIAL ASSISTANT:

    Tbe representatives of the Union invited the attention of the representatives of the Management that despite his servlcez in
the Bank entitling him for being employed as a Special Assistant to fill In the vacancies declared in March 1973, he had not
been considered for such employment since the seniority list as on 1,40-1972 has, in his case, not been propcrly drawn up. They
poinW~out that the period of his initial appointment in the Bank had teWy been ignored while computing his service- for
preparation of seniority list. They therefore desired that Shri Dhebar be employed as a Special Assistant as from 15-3-1973 in
terms of the minutes of the Joint Conference dated 9-3-1973.
     The - representatives of the Bank expressed that the period by an employee during his tenure under contract cannotbe
reckoned for purposes of determining his service in the Bank and that this principle is being uniformly adhered to in the case of
all employees in the Bank. in so far as any deviation from this principle would have wider repercussions, they expressed their
inability to accede to the suggestion of the Union.

      The representatives of the Bank found no way open for any such consideration.




     Since the matter could not be resolved through mutual negotiations, it is agreed to have the issue being decided through
adjudication. The representatives of the Union and the Bank agre" to prefer jointly an application to the appropriate authorities
to refer the matter for adjudication.

      fi is mutually agresd tharthe next conference be hetd In the third week of June, 1973.

                              Total-                     95

      The representatives of the Union pointed out that the
determination of vacancies even as above is not satisfactory in
 that the assessments as made do not appear to be uniform in
approach. In the absence of any well laid norms determination
of vacancies for purposes of declaration must essentially be negotiable.
Since the Union is being precluded for such negotiations to determine the
vacancies for all states the Union is left with no option than to pursue
its subsisting demand for determination of vacancies, of Special Assistantg
on the basis of the ratio of 1: 3 between Special Assistants and Clerks at all
levels and at all times. The representatives of the Union stated that the Union is
justified in pursuing the demand in the light, of the administration having earlier conceded such
determination of strength of employees within, the cadre in relation to the various
categories within the cadre.
    The representatives of the Bank informed that they have exalnined the needs of each branch and office having
regard,to the following factors

The needs of all branches and offices for Supervisory staff cannot be uniform but depend upon the nature, and
quantum of work in each branch or office and the of work to be supervised.

     i.      The supervisory staff does not consist only of Special Assistant but also includes Accountants and
             officers and in small branches, Managers also.


      The vacancies of Special Assistants have been assme&,- by the Bank after ascertaining the needs of branches and oftes
in the light of what is stated above and hence it would not be correct to say that there ge no norms for determination of
vacancies of Special Assistants. As the approach is needbased, the representatives of the Bank reiterated that there cannot
be, any ratio between the Clerks and Special Assistants.

      The representatives of the Union reiterated that the subsisting demand of the Union was necessitated only because of the
factors enunciated herein by the administration and the present arrange. ment for determination of vacancies on a mutually
agreed.-basis through negotiations. In so far as such negotiations in respect of the 'Bank in its totality of branches are now
being denied, the Union is not in a position to accept the number of vacancies, cated by the representatives of administration
and the employees of the Bank are left with,no choice than to pursue the demand.

     The representatives of Bank pointed out that they have worked out the needs of each Zone, branch by branch and so
the negotiations cannot be on the basis of totality but only on the needs of each branch or office.

     In view of the respective positions, no agreement could be reached.

    The tepresentatives of the Management inforrr,~Pd the repre s,entatives of the Union that henceforth future
appointm(e,nts of part-time employees will be made by the resi-e(Jive zones, in terms of the agreed nornis, taking into
account the needs of the branch.

11. RECALL OF THE RELEASED OFFICE-BEARERS OF THE UNION:

     The representatives of the Management informed the repTesentatives of the Union about the instructions given by
th:61)epaTtment ofBanking and the rules and guidelines framed by the Indian Banks' Association in the matter of relepse
of office-beare,rs of tile _' Union for trade u-nion work. They further stated that, action in the matter is required to ble
taken immediately.
     The representatives of the Union stated that release of offic(4-bearers of a trade union is a facility which has
~een(ecognisea as a trade union right under law. In fact some of the industrial relations legislation. The Review for such
a right being eajoinod in those legislations.

     While, so the representatives of the Union pointed out ihat the facility of release of office-bearers of the recognised
union for organisational work in the Bank has a distinJ histor~, of its own. The representatives of the Union estated that
as a sequel to the management of the bank having come forward to recognis-e the union, even while such recognition
was no contemplated inthe industry, as a sine quarion, for promoting prooer and harmorious industrial fielations in the
bank; the union had been persistent in pursuing its demand for release of office-bearers for organisational work. It is a
matter of fecord that in the context of the various banks not coming forward to accept on record such relief, the
management put off consideration of this demand till 1964 and upto that point of time the office-bearers had to forego
their salaries and errioluMents and attendant blenefits for availing leave on loss -of pay for attending to Union work.
Taking due note of this factor, the Management came forward to provide relitf for 4 (four). office-bearers, though
unofficially and not on record, in 1964. This position was regularised in 1967 by making the rellease official.

      The repres~entatives of the Union further slated that the facility came up for review in 1971, when the Union desired
that in the context of the vast expansion of the Bank and the attendant increase in staff strength, the faoility for release of
4 (four) office-bea~,ers be increasted to 9 by releasing all the office-bearoers of the Union exclusively for organisational
work, The representatives of the Union pointed out that it was only after duly ftcognising tile justifiability and the need
for such release, the management was responsiVe enough to accede to the Wease of 8 office-Learers of the Union
exclusively for organi sational work. The repre-qentatives of the Union pointed out that this decision for release of 8
office-beafers has also been approved and confirmed by the Board of Directors of the Bank.

     In the light of the foregoing, the representatives of the Union submitted that the release of Office-bearers of the
recognised union cannot be equated with what is being contemplated ether in the comi-nunicationfrom the Department
of Banking or with those referred to by the Indian Banks' Association. They averred that the release of 8 office-bearfers
for organizational work is a right recognised and conferred to the recognised Union as contemplated udder law, and as
such, such at accra ' ed legal right cannot be interfered with for any reason whateter. The representatives of the Union
also stated that the Management is well aware of the fact that the ext(ension of facility of relkase of office-bearers for
organizational work as a right to the recognised Udion has enabled the promotion and Maintenance of harmonious
industrial relations in the bank.

  . The representatives of the Union therefore urged the re~presentatives of the Management not to disturb the present
arrangements.

     The representatives of the Management stated that precisely for the reason that. there is a formal understanding with
the union that this matter is being discussed with the representatives of the Union so that the Indian Banks' Association's
Rules and Guidelides could be implemented without difficutty. Further they reiterated that in the context of the present
gituation prevailing in the country and industry and the Government's instructions in the matter and also in view of the
fact that most of the banks have already implemented the Indian Banks' Association's Rules & Guidelines, tHey have no
alternative than to take steps in the matter.


III. PAYMENT OF SPECIAL ALLOWANCE TO CLERKS
     ATTENDING CLEARING HOUSES:

     The representatives of the Union raised the matter of payment of Special Allowance payable to Special Assistants to
clerks attending Cl,paring Houses at various places with effect from 1-7-1966 in view of the Supreme Court Judgement.

    The representatives of the Management stated that the matter is being examined. They further started that the
Indian Banks' Association also has been examining this matter and they are awaiting their guidance.
   It is mutually agreed that the next joint Conference be held in the last week of February, 1976.

11. CASH SHORTAGES:

The repAe-sentatives of the Management stated that of late instances of cash shortgage havie been on the increase and
there is need totightenthe procedure for dealing with such instances. The representatives of the tTnion while appreciating
this need pointed out that in matters like this whatever procedure is laid down should be uniformly applied. After
discussions, it is mutually agreed to have the following procedure:

        1. When there is a cash shortage, the concerned employee should reimburse the amount of shortage immediately
and also give an explanation in the mattler ' If the employee is not in a position to make good the - amount immediately,
the amount of shortage is to be re coyered in reason in reasonable monthly instalments as may be decided by the
concertled, Deputy General Manager. So long as the shortage is not fully reimbur.ged, any ex-gratia or such other
amounts payable to the employee are also to be adjusted to the shortage.

     2. The amount of shortage where it is not immediately reimbursed is to be debited to sundry Assets -Sundry. Debtors
Account in the name of the concerned employee.. However, the concerned employee will be liable to pay the usual
interest charged on clean loans and the same should be paid once in a quarter.
    3. It is however, open to the emoloyet to raise a loan on fully secured basis against approved security such as G. P.
Notes, Fixed Deposit Ppdeipt, L.I.C. Policies, -etc. and clear or reduce the balance in the Sundry Asset Account.

     4. Where the Shortage is Rs. 2,500 and above, an investi gation is to be conducted by an officer appointe.d by the
con-cerned Deputy General Manager and appropriate action is to be taken wherever necessary irrespective of the, fact
that the employee has reimburs~d the amount. Where the Cash Shortage is less than Rs. 2,500 investigation is to be made
in all ca.~os where there are reasons to believe that the Cash Shortage is deliberate and in such otl*r cases as may be
considerd necessary by the Deputy General Manager of the concerned zone.

        5. If the preliminary investigation revtals that the shortage was deliberate, disciplinary proceedings are to be
initiatod against the concerned employlee.

      6. In case of shortage over Rs. 500 the employee may not be allowed to work in cash department for a year or as
long as the amount of shortage is not fully paid, whichever is later. This may be decided bythe concerned Manager
depiending upon the facts of the cash.

      7. Even wl~ ' erjetbe shortage is less than Rs. 500 if any employee incurs shortage twice or more within a year,
such employe)e may be shifted from cash work and he need not be entrusted with the cash work ior a period of one year.
This may also be decided by the concerned Manager depending upon the facts of each case.

Ill. RELAXATION OF QUALIFICATIONS FOR RECRUITMENT OF EX-SERVICEMEN-DISABLED OR
OTHERWISE AND DEPENDENTS OF EX-SERVICEMEN KILLED IN ACTION:

     The representatives of the Management invited the atten tion of the representatives of the Union that taking due,
note of the circumstances and the need for providing greater opportunities for employment to candidates belonging to
Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe/Ex-Servicemen, the administration had made certain relaxations in the conditions like
qualifications, age etc., for employment in the bank for Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribes and Ex-Servicemen. The
representatives of the Management further pointed out that in spite of these relaxations our performance in the matter of
recruitment of ex-servicernen against reserved vacancies has not been satisfactory and hence there is need to make
further relaxation if we are to improve our performance and clear the back log. The representatives of the Management
emphasised that in the light of the Ex-Servicemen besides possessing generally-a minimum qualification of Matriculation
have had the opportunity for being trained in aspects of administration, accounts stores, security, etc., and in the context
of their disciplined service in the defence services of thp nation and hence the minimum educational qualification in their
cases could be relaxed to a pass in Matriculation or equivalent.

     The representatives of the Union, while fully sharing the views and sentiments expressed by the representatives of
the Management pointed out that it was this sOntirrient which impelled the Union to request the administration for recog-
nition of their service as Ex-servic'emen for purposes of promotions. While so, the representatives of the Union expressed
that because of a prevalent back-log for recruilment, they are a little apprehen§ive of the ~esultant reflections for
promotion if the suggested concession for recruitment is to be extended.

     The representatives of the Union concurred with the rentesentatives of the Management that the bank will not be
able to ignore the statutory obligations the administration may extend these concessions, while at the same time keeping
inviewthe general interest of all the employees inthe bank.

    The representatives of the Management informed that they would note of thle views of tl~Ae Union while
proceeding inthis regard.

PAYMENT OF SPECIAL ALLOWANCE TO CLERKS ATTENDING CLEARING. DOUBLE:

     The representatives of the Union wanted to know that they are yet to hpar from the Indian Bank's Association who
hav'einfornidd that they would be getting the matter thoroughly examined and advising banks thereafter.
       It is mutually agreed that the next Joint Conference he held in the last w~eek of May, 1976.

Management expresspd that whatever changes are felt necessary may be giVtn in the form of a Note where afterwords,,

after the note as above,is submitted.

      2. RECRUITMENT OF SUB-ORDINATE STAFF-NORM RELATING TO HEIGHT:

     The repfesentativ!es of the Union desired that the norm stipulating a mfnimum Deight of 5'3" for recruitment
as a members of the subordinate be relaxed to 5'. The representativ'es of the management pointed out that in so far as
this norm has been stipulated for employment in the bank as clerks and in as much as avenue,s-for subordinates are
available for being promoted as clerks no such relaxation is possible.

    The repreentatives of the Union thereafter pointed out out that there are few cases of hardship where candidates
have been employed as daily wages without rigidly adhering to these norms and they are now denied opportunities for
being emplo~ed in permanent vacancies b'ec9use of.the rigorous application of these norms. They therefore desired that
atleast in their cases relaxation of this norm is necessary.

     After due discussion in the matter the representatives of the management a-greed to regularise the existing cases
of daily wagers / to, porary employees, if any, as on date, provided these candidates satisfy all other requirements.

    3. OVER TIME:

     The representatives of the management informed the representatives of the Union that the bank has been informed
that as against a reduction of 50% or more in the overtime wages in other banks such percentage,, works out only to 42%
in our bank. They thorefore desired that effective measures are necessary in our case to improve the position and as such
look for-ward to the employees' co-operation in the matter of maximising productivity.

 - The represeentativ.,es of the Union concurred that any adverse, image to the bank on comparision with others must be
 eliminAd and stated that the employee would surely extend all co-,operation to the bank for optimum utilisation of their
 service within the working hours and thus maximise productivity.

1. PAYMENT OF BONUS TO THE EMPLOYEES IN THE BANK:

     The representatives of the Union, initiating discussions on payment of Bonus to the employees in the Bank, pointed
out that the claims of employees for payment of adequate Bonus for the years 1974 and 1975 still subsist and that
payment of Bonus for the year 1976 has also become overdue. They desired that this qucs I ion may be taken up for
discussion and finalisation.

        The representatives of the Management emphasised that the question of having any discussion for payment of
Bonus f or the years 1974 and 1975 does not arise in so far as the employees in the Industry are not entitltd to such
payment in respect of these years. Further more, the employees in the Bank have already been paid “ex-Gratia’’ payments
for these two years. They underlirw-d. the fact that the Payment of Bonus Ordinance 1977 'has no retrospective effect
              I




and is exclusivaly for the accounting year of 1976. The Ordinance does not provide any scope therefore, for reopening
the payments made for the year 1974 and 1975.

     Without prejudice to their positions in the matter, the representatives of the Union desired that the issue of payment
of Bonus for the year 1976 be taken up for discussions. For purposes of such discussions, they desired that as is
ciistomary. they be furnished all relevant information respect of actual figures of working results of the Bank for the year
1976.

     The representatives of the Management stated that the 13onus Ordinance of 1977 is explicit in the matter of calcu-
lation of allocable surplus and for datermining the quantum of Bonus for being paid. In the light of the provisions of the
Bonus Ordinance and the published results of the Bank, there is no scope for negotiations on Bonus for 1976 and the
Bank has to strictly adhere to the provisions of the Ordinance alone for making payment of Bonus for the. year 1976.

      The representatives of the Union submitted that there cannot be any deviation for computation of Bonus ignoring
 the customary rights of employees in the regard. They also pointed out that even in the Industry there are Banks which
 have taken up for discussions and finalisation, the payment of Bonus foi the years 1975 and 1976. They therefore
 emphasised that even in respect of our Bank, the Bonus Ordinance of 1977 does not preclude the calculation of allocable
 surplus and computation of Bonus for payment in the customary manner, ae has been done all along.

       The representatives of the Management denied that there is any such customary right as claimed by the Union,
     The representatives of the Union reiterated the existance of customary rights and submitted that in that event, the
 employees' claim for payment of adequate Banus for the year 1976 as well as for the years 1974 and 1975 stift
 remain open and subsist.

     1) Vacancy of special Assistants as on 1-6-1977:

         The question of the declaration of vacencies of Special Assistants for being filled up by eligible Clerks on the
basis of their seniority as on 1-6-1977 was taken up for discussions and finalisation.

         The representatives of the Management recalled that the matter of consideration of cases of such of those
employees who had declined the offer when they were being made on the basis of eligibility and availability of the
determined number of vacacies for their being employed as Special Assistants keeping their eligibility afresh
continuously in all subsequent declarations is to be done away with, and that their eligibility for temporary entustment of
supervisory duties in temporary/ leave vacancies should also not be made avaliable, for suchpositions give rise to
numerous anomolies at all levels. They pointed out that this suggestion was made long back and the matter is pending
finalisation for long. Apart from this the representative of the Management pointed out that for administrative
convenience they have been, since that begining, treating the purpose like recruitment etc. They therefore suggested that
maintainance of a separate list for seniority for Union Territory of Pondicherry for filling up vacancies of Special
Assistants, also give rise to anomalies and as such the branches in the state of Tamilnadu and the Union Territory of
Pondicherry are to be taken as a single entity for drawing up of the statewise seniority lists of employees.

         The representatives of the4 Union ststed that its true that the issue of keeping the eligility open to clerks who
decline the offer fo being employed as special Assistants once on their eligilbility, is one Pending for long. They added
that on the part of the Union they had kept the employees informed of the need for introduction pf such a stipulation on
the eligibility of employment of clerks as special Assistants as well as entrustment ofcierks as special as well as
entrustment of supervisory dutics in temporary/leave vacancies perennially even while clerks decline the offeer of
employment as special Assistants in permanebt vacancies is anomalous and as such the facility is going to be
withdrawing the facility even for this application such withdrawal can be effected after duly providing yet another
opportunity.

         It is mutually agreed that the fecility of keeping the eligibility open to such of those employees who decline the
offer for employment as special Assistants under this declaraionis final and that those who decline this offer will neither
be eligible for being considered for employment as special Assistants under future declarations nor will they be eligible
for entrustment of supervisory duties in temporary/leave vacancies.

        The representative of the Union ststing that they require some time to consider the suggestion for a composite list
of seniority of Clerks in Tamilnadu and this Union territory of pondicherry they requested that this matter be taken up for
consideration at the forthcoming Joint Conference. This was agreed to by representative of the Management.

        After Mutual discussion the following ststewwise list of vacancies was arrive at :

organisational right enjoined on recognition and hence should not be interfered with. They also stated that the
accceptance of Code of Discipline by the management casts as well an obligation on the managemant to recognise the
right of the Union for holding its meeting in the premise of the institution. They, therefore, desired the countermanding of

hold meetings in the Bank’s premises, and without in any manner allowing itself to be treated as a precedent for having
accepted the stipulations, the union, as a precedent for having accepted the stipulations, the Union , as an interim measure
till matters are finalised at the industry level, agrees to be guided by such conditions for holding Union’s meetings in the
premises of the Bank.

       It is therefore mutually agreed that the recongnised Union and its members will be allowed to hold the Union’s
meetings in the premises of the various branches/offices of the bank subject to the following stipulations;

    2. Fixing representatives of the Union stated that except in Head Office, ther are no norms for fixing the number of
       sub-staff eligible for special Allowance at administrative units like circle offices and Divisional Offices and
       desired the norms to be fixed for determining such vacancies in view of the different practices followed in
       different administrative units.
        The representatives of the management stated that they will call for details. examine the matter and issue suitable
guidelines to the adminisrative units in this regard.

that a certain percentage can be reserved for employment of ex-servicemen employees as Social Assistants and the same
can be 17-1/2% as is fixed for recruitment and this can be made applicable to future applications.

         The matter was mutually discussed at length, as a result of which it is agreed that the reservation for eligible ex-
servicema\en employees for employment as Special Assistants be fixed at 17 1/2% in each State, subject toa minimum of

prepare a scheme for consideration of the Board.

6. Pillai Commitee Recommendations:

         The representatives of the Management informed that the all India Bank Employees’ Association has already
taken up this matter with the Indian Banks’ Association and as such held that till matters are finalised with the All India
Bank Employees’ Association at industrial level, there cannot be unilateral actions at institutional level. Apart from the
fore. going the representatives of the Union pointed out that the mere acceptance of the recommendations of the Pillai
committee by the Government would inno manner whatever alter the possitions of law in the matter and that the
Memorandam of Settlements which the Management seeks to terminate through its letter IRS 13:1531: NVS dated
28.4.1978 would continue to be vailed and binding on the parties to the settlements. They therefore expredded that the

SHORT RECIAL OF THE CASE :

        The problem that had arisen because of continued eligibility for employment as special assistants and entrustment
of supervisory duties of some of the ekigible clerks who were employed as special assistants and who declined such
employment or their being so offered continued to engage the attention of the representatives of both the Bank and the

         Accordingly, through the Minutes of the Joint Conference neld on 30.11.1977, the employees were duly advised
and informed that the facility for keeping open the eligibity to such of those employees who declined the offer for
employment as special assistant under that declaration was final and that those whodeclined the offer will neither be
eligible for being comsiderde for employment as special assistants under future declarations nor will they be eligible for
enrustment of supervisory duties in temporary/leave vacancies. After having so duly notified and advised the employees

the Memorandum of settlement dated 7-5-1873, in the matter of Employment of Clerks as Special Assistants and
Temporary entrustment of Supervisory Duties, the following settlement is arrived at.

          1. PROMOTION TEST FOR SUB STAFF WHO HAVE PASSED SSLC OF EQUIVALENT EXAMINATION
             AND WHO COMPLETE YEARS OF SERVICE.

         The representatives of the management explanied the difficulties expreienced in the present procedure of
administering test to the above category of sub staff on an adhoc basis, and desired that for the sake of uniformity such
tests should also be held twice a year on the basis of eligibility determined as on the 1st of January and July each year.

         After mutual discussion it was agreed to hold such tests periodically twice a year on the basis of eligibility
determined as on the 1st of January and 1st of July each year. The best are to be held within a reasonable time circulated
for the benefit of the eligible employees. The new procedure will be effective from1-7-1979. However, those who are at
present eligible to take the test will be administered tests as per existing procedure till 31-5-1979.
2.POSTING OF CLERKS AS SPECIAL ASSISTANTS:

        The representatives of the Union referred to the settlement dated 9-6-1978 on employment of clerks as Special
Assistants and temporary entrustment of subpervisory duties and pointed out that the restriction that a clerks who
declines the posting once is barred from being condsidered again has wprked out to be harsh and needs to be modified to
help cases where declining once may be on genuine grounds.

        The representatives of the Management explained the difficulties and delay involved in waiting for the decision
of the employee at each application and in effering to the next employee when it is declined.

        After mutual discussion it was agreed to change the said settlement to incorporate the following points:-

         a) If an eligible clerks declines for the first time the post of Special Assistant after the offer is made, he will be
disentitled for being considerde for the post for the three successive applications and he will be considered again only on
the fourth application.

        b) If he declines for the second time, his case will not be considered for the posting again.

        c) The existing restriction that once the offer is declined, he will not be entruled to get tempoary supervisory duty
will continue when the posting is declined even for the first time.


        3. EX-SERVICEMEN EMPLOYEES-WEIGHTAGE FOR PAST SERVICE:

                 The need for reviewing the settlement dated 17-10-1973 regarding the concessions given to Ex-
servicemen was felt on both the sides. The experience gathered from implementing the settlement was discussed with
special emphasis on the purpose served by such concessions. It was mutually agreed to evolve, after a due study in the
matter, a comprehensive scheme, whereby the past service in the defence could be recongnised by giving monetary
benefits in the shape of certain increments.


    4. CASH DEPARTMENT - ACCOUNTABILITY FOR - SHORTAGE:

        The representative of the Union drew the attention of the Maqnual of Instruction os cash, where in for the
shortage found in a bundle after it is checked and signed by the supervisory staff, both the person who counted and who
checked would be responsoble to make good the shortage, equally. They stated the position is untenable and the cash
clerk would not be liable for shortage once the bundle is checked by the Supervisory staff. They wanted suitable
amendments to be made in the cash manual to remove the anamolius position.

        The representatives of the Management started that the circumstances and reasons for incorporating such a
provision will have to be studied in relation to other procedures and pracrices obtaining in our Bank for being taken up
for consideration later.

        5.AUDIT CLERKS ALLOWANCE:

       The Representatives of the Union started that the claims for Audir Allowance for checking various
statement/returens have to be looked onto and the alliowance paid.

        The Representatives of the Management desired to examine whether Audit Allowance as envisaged in the II
Bopartite Sittlement would have to be paid. It was being paid for checking/verifving certain statments/returens as per
agreement dated 7/8.10.1964. Some of the statments/returns have since been changed ot\r abolished and hence the whole
position has to be reviewed. They were examining the matter and would communicate their decision ass to the
statments/returns for verifying/checking of which the allowance would bu payable.

    6. RECRUITMENT OF DAILY WAGERS TO THE POSTS OF SUB-STAFF :

        The representative of the Union wanted that the norms for recruitment of daily wagers to the posts of sub-staff
should be liberalised in regard to age upto 30 years without the pre-condition of temporary service.

        The representatives of the Mnagement stated that they were seized of the matter and whatever relaxationss
considered reasonable in the circumstances were being made. The suggstions made would be studied further.

7. SETTLEMENT OF PROMOTIONS - DISABILITY CLAUSE ON ACCOUNT OF PUNISHMENT IMPOSED :

        The Representatives of the Union pointed out that once an employee comes through successfully in the test and
interview but on account of the punishment imposed, consideration of his case is postponed for specified period, he
should not be made to appear for the test afresh after the expiry of the disability period but he should be promoted
automatically on the basis of the ealier result.

         The Representatives of the Management started that cansideration of his case would mean that he has to undergo
the entire process of taking the examination and interview as if his case is being considered afresh in the application of
the formula to which he would be eligible after the disability period. However, they would examine the position again.



8. PLACEMENT OF SUB-STAFF PROMAOTED CLERKS :
        The Representatives of the Management gave suggestions as to the policy they would adopt in the placement of
sub-staff promoted clerks on their promotion, in view of their increasi ng number and concentration in Metropolitan
branches.

        The Representatives of the Union wanted time to study the suggestions.

providing temporary relief by way of conveyance allowance/subsidy and also the centeen facilities as a special case for a

The Representatives of the Union drew the attention of the other side to the minutes of the previous meeting and
desired to know the steps taken by the management to hold the test early as assured by them. They expressed that the
test has to be held latest by middle of next month,

The Representatives of the management explained the constraints they had to face and the various steps that are to be
taken for holding the test. Hence, it may take some more time to hold the test.

2. Fitment for promotees after 1-9-1978:

The Representatives of the Union Stated that the fitment of promotee officers after 1-9-1978 should be on the basis of
the existing formula taking into account the fitment to be made to as on 1-9-1978 in terms of III Bipartite Settllement.

The Representatives of the Management did not agree to this view point. They stated that the formula would be
applicable only to old scales and not to new fitment effected from 1-9-1978.

3. Working of Currency chest:

The Representatives of the Union referred to the previous discussions in this regard and stated that the duties of the
workmen staff working in the Currency Chest have to be specified and have to be uniform in all the Currency Chests
They stated that mere insisting on increase in workload without considering the consequential responsibility with which
they are entrusted, will not answer the problem.

The workland must be such that they are in a position to attend to it properly and cited the example in some other
Banks where the workload is specified and is much less than in our Bank.

They also referred tochanging the guidelines in the Manual of Instructions on cash as pointed out by them earlier, where
it is given that both the Clerk handling cash and the Officer checking have to share the loss equally after the cash is
checked and taken.

The Representatives of the Management replied that they are calling for the neccessary information from other Banks
inthe above regard and thereafter take a decision in the matter.

4. Audit Clerks Allowance:

The Representatives of the Management enquired about the Sugeestions given to certain selected statements/ returns in
supercsion of those as per the earlier agreement.

After mutual discussion and exchange of views, it was agreed that the matter has to be studied further and that it could
be taken up at the next Joint Conference.

5. T.A. On Transfer:

The Representatives of the Union stated that bachelor employees are not paid T.A. for taking their dependant parents
and their personal belongings during extended period of joining time as in the case of married employees. They pointed
out that when it involves shiffting their dependant parents later within the time permitted, they should also be paid T.A/
H.A.

The Representatives of the Management informed that they would be examining the matter to resolve                 genuine
difficulties felt in this regard.

6.Franking Machine Allowance:
The Representatives of the Union drew the attention of the other side to the earlier understandig in the matter and
desired that management issue clear guidelines about the nature of the allowance as there appears to be some
contradictions as regards the same in some of the Circle.

The Representatives of the Management agreed to issue uniform guidelines to Circles in this regard.

7. Over – Time for work done on 8th october 1979:
For the period the employees worked on 8th October which was declared as a holiday on account of the demise of Shri.
Jayaprakash Narayan, the employees, the representatives of the Union Claimed, should be paid overtime. The reported
stand of the Management that overtime should be paid only if there was "entrustment" of work on that date, was
untenable and incorrect.

The Representativesof the Management pointed out that they are bound by the instructions given byIBA in this regard
and as such there could beno deviation in respect of our Bank alone.

The Representatives of the Union reiterated their stand.

8. Deputation Allowance:

The representatives of the union averred that deputation allowance should be paid as demanded earlier to those
employees who were deputed to Gramin Banks.They were also discharging onerous duties in difficult areas.

The Representatives of the Management said that they would examine this matter in the light of deceisio taken at the
bipartite negotiations at industry level.

9.Appointment of Sub- staff:

The Representatives of the Union pointed out the hardship caused to daily wagers when they are deprived of their
opportunity tobe considered for absorpton into the regular sub- staff posts on the ground that they have to be sponsored
through the employmen exchanges. The Bank should consider it sufficient if the Daily Wagers get themselves
registered in employment exchanges and not insist on being sponsored, as other wise the service rendered by them as
daily wagers in the hope of being aborbed will be of no avail.

The Representatives of the Management informed that they are governed by the Government guidelines in this regard
and that they have noted the views of the Union Representatives.

10 Khadi Livery:

The Representatives of the Union reiterated their demand to replace Khadi Livery by mill cloth livery to the sub- staff
are finding it very inconvenient and uneconomical to maintain the same . They cited that in some other Banks Khadi
Livery is not being insisted upon.

The representatives of the Management stated that in this regard they are governed by the Government guidelines and
that the matter has been taken up with the Government.

11. Festival Advance:

The Representatives of the Union referred to the liberalised loan schemes obtaining in some other banks and demanded
tht the lona be raised to one month's salary of the employee and repayment spread over 10 months.
The Representatives of the Management stated that particulars from other Bank will be collected and then the matter will
be examined further. Also we have to be guided by the IBA guidelines to ensure uniformity.

12. Liberalisation of Existing Housing Loan Scheme:

The Representatives of the Union stated that the existing Housing Loan Scheme for employee requires liberalisation and
placed the following suggestions for the Management's consideration:

1) The overall limit for sanction of loans be raised to 2% of year end deposits.

2) The ceiling for loand to individual employees be raised to Rs.1.lakh.

3) The minimum for loan to members of the sub- staff be enhanced to Rs. 40,000/-

4) Wherever eligible employees have ready proposals, they are not to be denied issue of commitment letters on the pley
of other existing norms.

5) Review of cases fo those employees who had initially availed lower amount of loans to the extent of their eligibility
for increase in quantum of loans, as additional loan.

6) Such of those employees who had available housing loans in the past to the extent of 30 months' salary and who had
to dispose of their houses with a view to liquidate their torrowings fromoutside, raised for the purchase of the house, be
permitted to available now the remaining portion on the basis of 60 times salary as houding loan.

7) Removal of discrimination for letting out the premises for rent through embargo for sanction of additional loans

8) In so far as the scheme for determing the repayment was different in the past, a good number of employees has cleared
their liability prior to 14-6-5 and had thus be come ineligible for additional loand under the present norms. This norm is
to be removed to enable these employees as well to become eligible for additionl loans.

The Reepresentatives of the Management stated that the the suggestion will be taken note of at the appropriate time.
They also pointed out that under the new service regulations for Officers they have to formulate new housing loan
shceme as per Government guidelines and the entire matter has to be reviewed in the light of the above.
