A R Rajesh
Regional Secretary
CBOA Kottayam

Dear Sir,
We have conducted *Regional Committee meeting of CBOA Kottayam Region* at Boat Jetty Road Alappuzha on 10/06/2017. The meeting was attended by 12 (out of 15) RC members. Sri. Kishore Babu R, Asst. Regional Secretary welcomed the participants. Sri. Krishna Kumar, Regional Chairman delivered the Presidential address. Sri. Joseph James, Central Committee Member addressed the gathering. Thereafter, the Regional Secretary Sri. A R Rajesh presented the Regional sum up. Sri. Jacob Cherian, Treasurer, Sri. Akhil Krishnan, Asst. Regional Secretary, Sri. Anil D, Smt. Jyothi Lakshmi B, Smt. Sunita S, Sri.Vinod V R, Sri. Aswin Joseph and Smt. Resmi R have actively participated in the meeting.
The following matters were discussed in the meeting:
1. The amendment in the Accountability policy
The Regional Committee unanimously supported the views of our Honourable GS.

The amendment is totally against the principle and objectives of the Accountability policy.

Detrimental to the entire officer community.

It will result in Fear psychosis and officers may resort to “Escapism”.

Everyone will practice Witch hunting to escape from being penalised for the failure that will end up in Mutual disbelief among officers. Mutual accusations will spread.

Everybody will be working for finding reasons to escape, rather to find avenues for business.

THE AMENDMENT WILL TOTALLY DEMORALISE THE OFFICERS UP TO SCALE 7 AND THE BANK’s GROWTH WILL BE SEVERELY AFFECTED

Above all, IT WILL BE RESULTING IN DOUBLE PUNISHMENT AS OPAS IS ALSO DECIDED ON THE PERFORMANCE WHICH DECIDES THE PROMOTION.
TREATING THE NON PERFORMANCE AS A MISCONDUCT WOULD BE THE SECOND PUNISHMENT AND IS AGAINST THE PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL JUSTICE CAN BE CHALLENGED IN COURT OF LAW.

The RC unanimously adopted the following ACTION POINTS as suggested by our GS.
1. We must fight tooth and nail to scrap it.
2. Record our strong opposition in all the CLJMs.
3. Ensure 100% participation in the propo SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN covering all the cadres.
4. Advise every officer
to demand for KRA and record in WRITING their DISAGREEMENTS strongly if any in the beginning itself.
5. Advise every Branch Incharge to write their disagreements on THE TARGETS supported by scientific arguments backed by statistics immediately on receipt of Targets from the controlling office.

 

2.Transfers/Promotions
The Regional Committee made threadbare analysis of staff inadequacy in various branches.

Wherever only one officer and clerk is available, immediate posting of additional hands.

Ensure the availability of one more Power of attorney holder in all branches which crossed 50 crore Business.

Limiting Only one sub-staff promotee clerk in one branch.

Posting of second officer wherever Advances portfolio is more than 20 crores.

To ensure all pending transfer requests on the grounds of medical reasons are effected during General transfers.

Women’s Committee is formed for analysing matters including placements related to lady officers in family way.

To ensure 100% canvassing of new promoters in the ongoing process of promotions from clerical to officer cadre.

 

3. Suggestion for Regional level joint meeting (RLJM)*

CBOA Kottayam Regional Committee resolved to place suggestion before the Central Committee to explore the possibility for conducting Regional Level Joint Meeting at ROs on a quarterly basis. It will ensure a platform for the Regional Office bearers to meet and discuss various matters with Regional Management.

 

4. Mounting NPA under Educational Loan portfolio in Kottayam Region.*
As the Government of Kerala has also come up with financial aid for EL defaulters now the recovery efforts made by bankers are becoming ineffective. The Circle/RO top management is discouraging granting of fresh Educational loans even to eligible borrowers through verbal instructions. Now the pressure is on the branch heads to avoid EL proposals without sufficient reasons. Rejection of educational loans without sufficient reasons calls for staff accountability. The Regional Committee expressed concern over oral directions given to branch heads to turn down EL proposals. If the top management wishes to reduce EL, it is better to amend bank’s policy on Educational Loans rather than giving unethical pressure on branch heads.

 

5.Other Activities

It is decided to conduct branch visits immediately on completion of promotion process.

Visits to all other branches to be completed after the General Transfer.

The meeting concluded at 6.30pm.
