REF: Our letter dated 20.01.2009
While, we note with appreciation that IBA is inclined to address issue referred herein above, we hereby submit that pending scientific manpower exercise to be undertaken to arrive at a standardisation at all Banks on urgent basis the following points are to be considered for early implementation.
[a] The working hours for Bank Officers should be 6.30 hrs on week days and 4 hours on Saturday with a lunch recess of 30 minutes to 45 minutes
[b] Banking transaction hours are to be fixed in such a manner that the officers are not to stretch beyond the stipulated working hours.
[c] Where the Banking transactions stretch beyond the normal working hours, alternatives are to be thought off to avoid over burdening of the officers.
[d] Officers are not to be insisted upon to attend meetings after office hours and also on Public holidays and on Sundays.
[e] Situation requiring the presence of officers on special occasions it should be by a written order, and they should be adequately compensated.
[f] When the officers are to work beyond the working hours, as mentioned in Point [a], based on the marking in the muster role or “login” and “log out” cumulative excess man hours are also to be compensated in the form of compensatory off.
In event of our demand of the “5 days working” being considered, appropriate enhancement of working hours not exceeding 7 and half hours per day be considered.
We seek your effective intervention to bring about a new change in the advent of technology.
