The next round of negotiations is now to take place on 22nd April, 2015.  Before we know the outcome of this meeting,  let us summaries the achievements / failures till 20th April 2015 (i.e. exactly 900 days from the date when 10th BPS had become due).   Herein we have merely regrouped the post of Mr Kamlesh Chaturvedi, a well know leader who had been taking up the cause of the bankers.   He had posted  this on his Facebook page about two days back.


Mr Chaturvedi says in its post as follows:

“It has been informed that next round of discussions with Officers Associations will be held on 22nd April. We understand that soon IBA will hold negotiations with workmen unions too. Though it would not be prudent to analyse and comment on outcome of negotiations held so far, still I have made an attempt to look at what has been demanded and what has been achieved so far on the basis of information received from Unions.    if I have committed any mistake, such mistake must be pointed out”.

Issue / Topic


Achievement Till Date (20/4/2015)

Construction of Basic Pay :

Revision of Basic Pay w.e.f. 1-11-2012 by merger of D.A. payable at the average index for the quarter July-September 2012.

Revision of Basic Pay w.e.f. 1-11-2012 by merger of D.A. as on 01.11.2011 i.e 4440 points. By Agreeing to merger of DA one year prior to date of effect of the settlement i,r. 01.11.2012 will substantially reduce the revised Basic Pay as compared to justified and reasonable demand.

Construction of Basic Pay :

Construction of revised pay scales by loading thereafter at 30% to clerical staff and 35% to subordinate staff.

Construction of revised pay scales by loading 2% of the Basic plus DA as on 31.03.2012. Since DA as on 01.11.2012 would already be merged, very little DA would be left on 31.03.2012. Against demand of 30% loading by merger of DA Payable for the quarter July-September 2012 will further result in reduction of revised basic pay.
