Strained Industrial Relations prevail in Dhanalaxmi Bank since last one year
due to the adamant and recalcitrant attitude of the bank management.
The efforts made by the Dhanalaxmi Bank Officers Organisation (DBOO) to settle the issues through bilateral negotiations failed.
The relations strained further after the DBOO resorted to a whistle blowing to expose a high value fraud in one of its Mumbai branches.
The DBOO demanded not only a forensic audit into the scam but also on the indiscriminate appointments made in the Bank in the last two years.
The DBOO alleges that the real culprits, the bigwigs of the bank, are left scot-free whereas the officebearersof the DBOO are victimised for whistle blowing and its General Secretary even facing a lifethreat.
Moreover, the management of Dhanalaxmi Bank unfortunately putting aside the interest ofthe Bank with its vindictive and atrocious action, has unceremoniously terminated the services of Com. P V Mohanan, the General Secretary of DBOO.
Resultantly, at the call of DBOO, the agitatingofficers are on Indefinite Strike since 13th instant. The All India Bank Officers’ Confederation(AIBOC), to which the DBOO is affiliated, is in full support to the genuine cause of the agitatingofficers of Dhanalaxmi Bank and it is also reported that the Kerala State Committee of AIBOC hasdecided to start an indefinite hunger strike in front of the Head Office of the Dhanalaxmi Bank.
Bank of Maharashtra::
It is observed that despite appreciable performance of Public Sector Banks
in all the Government Sponsored Schemes, since nationalisation, including the recently introduced
Prime Minister’s Jan Dhan Yojana, Insurance Scheme, etc.,
the bank employees are subjected to unwarranted harassment and targeted for no reason.
In an unprecedented move, the Maharashtra Police has booked the Branch Manager of
Bank of Maharashtra as responsible for the suicide of a farmer.
The Bank of Maharashtra Officers’ Organisation (BOMOO) took strong exception to theaction of the bank management in suspending the official even before the FIR pertaining to
abetment of suicide was lodged against the said official and demanded for escalating the matter withthe highest level in the Government and other concerned bodies

With militant greetings,
Gramin bank staff to strike work on June 30,2015.
Gramin bank employees in the country are on a warpath against the Union government,
protesting against the proposed disinvestment in the rural banking sector.
They will go on a nationwide strike on June 30, demanding that the BJP government withdraw from the move to privatise the gramin banks.
“You cannot expect the rural sector to be served well if the bank is privatised. The private sector has only one aim: profit. The gramin banks too will go that way,” they said.
