Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers – DoPT Orders
F.No.7/1/2017-CS-1(A)(Pt.)

2nd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan
Khan Market, New Delhi-3
Dated 27.02.17

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers – Reg.

DoP&T has been receiving many references from various Ministries/ Departments seeking clarification on the issue of grant of bunching to Assistant Section Officers of Central Secretariat Service in terms of Department of Expenditure’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

It has also been noticed that there have been divergent views on the matter that while some Ministries/ Departments have given the benefit on their own, some other Ministries/ Departments have sought clarifications on various issues they are facing while giving the benefit of bunching in terms of DoE’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

3. The matter has been taken up for further clarifications with Establishment Division/ Department of Expenditure briefly on the following issues:

i. While the Seventh Pay Commission had not prescribed different modes of pay fixation for Direct Recruit (DR) and Promotee ASOs, there have been two different modes of pay fixation for DR and Promotees prior to implementation of Seventh pay Commission. Due to differential methods of pay fixation, required differential of 3% is not calculable based on seniority alone as the other relevant facts of being DR/ Promotee comes into play here.

ii) The manner of different pay fixation for DR ASO and promotee Assistants has been challenged in various court cases (viz. OA No.2147/2015, OA No. 150/2016, OA No. 1015/2013 and OA No.476/2015 etc.)

4. It has already been decided to consult Department of Expenditure through Establishment (Pay) in the matter and same is under examination. Therefore, to ensure uniform implementation of Department of Expenditure’s instruction, all the Ministries/ Departments are advised to wait for further instructions with regard to grant of bunching benefits to ASOs of CSS and also if orders have already been issued by any Ministry/Department, the same may not be given effect till further instructions.

5. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

Merger of Associate Banks with SBI - Immediate Jobs to be done - AIBEA

Merger of Associate Banks with SBI - Immediate Jobs to be done - AIBEA

Closure of Associate Banks – Immediate Jobs to be done – AIBEA
CIRCULAR LETTER No. 28/9/2017/10
24-2-2017
TO ALL OFFICE BEARERS/STATE FEDERATIONS/
SSBEA/OUR UNIONS IN ASSOCIATE BANKS & SBI

Dear Comrades,
• Government’s Gazette Notification on closure of Associate Banks and merger with SBI

Notwithstanding the fact that merger of Associate Banks with SBI is unwarranted and avoidable and despite all our protests, campaign and public/political opinion, the Government has gone ahead and typical of this Government’s commitment to banking reforms, they have now gazette the Notification on closure of the 5 well-run Associate Banks and their merger with SBI with effect from 1-4-2017.

At this juncture it is very important to take care of the interests of our members in the Associate Banks who have always held the flag of AIBEA very high against all provocations and challenges. It is important to ensure their job continuity, job protection, besides taking care of their service conditions, trade union rights, etc.

During the founding years of AIBEA, SBI (Imperil Bank) employees were an integral part of AIBEA but later they went out of AIBEA in 1953 due to certain differences. Even after that there have been AIBEA unions in SBI but there has not been any significant membership.

However, after the forced merger of State Bank of Indore, we now have our unit in SBI viz. All India SBI Employees Association. In terms of their Rules and Bye Laws, all our Unions in Associate Banks can also be part of it and hence, as decided by us, our 5 Unions in the Associate Banks will now be affiliated to AISBIEA. Thus our AIBEA Unit in SBI i.e. AISBIEA will now have a membership of around 50,000 employees.

Our priority task now is to ensure the protection of interest of our members in the new set up. We have to re-structure our unions in the changed set-up. For this, our meeting of SSBEA/AISBIEA/Associate Bank unions is being held at Bhopal on 11th March.

In the meantime, the following steps are required to be taken by us:
1. Our existing unions (SBTEU, SBHSA, SMBEU, AISBPEF, and AISBBJECC) are to submit a letter to AISBIEA seeking formal affiliation.
2. Taking efforts to safeguard the jobs, job security, service conditions, and trade union rights of our employees/unions in Associate Banks in post-merger scenario.
3. All State Federations to immediately organise Conventions/meetings of our members in Associate Banks.
4. An interim Adhoc body should be formed consisting of our units in Associate Banks and SBI in every State.
5. VRS is likely to be announced shortly for the Associate Bank employees. We should advice our members not to yield to any pressures to leave the jobs.
6. Any issue confronting the members in the Associate Banks on account of the merger should be dealt by our State Federations in consultation with AIBEA/AISBIEA.
7. Further guidelines will be given in due course looking to developments.

All our State Federations are requested to move in the matter and act swiftly.

With greetings,

Yours comradely,
C.H. VENKATACHALAM
GENERAL SECRETARY
