Banking services comes to halt in Bengal during All India strike

 Kolkata, 26 November (HS) : Banking services throughout West Bengal along with the rest of India came to  a halt today in response to a 24 hour nationwide strike called by the All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA), a conglomerate of all the nine major bank unions, to press for their multiple demands despite causing severe inconveniences to millions of bank customers in the present pandemic period.


But congratulating over 600,000 employees of all public sector, private and Regional Rural Banks along with those of Reserve Bank of India, including about 1,50,000 in Bengal alone, for participating in today's strike by staying away from their work for a day, AIBEA state General Secretary Rajen Nagar said  in view of the present economic situation they had 'no other option' but to resort to such a nationwide strike to press for their demands.


He however, expressed deep regrets for the 'possible inconveniences' of  large number of bank customers for the suspension of work on a working day when most of the ATMs were also closed .



 Today's  day long bank strike has been called coinciding with the nationwide 'Bharat Bandh', jointly called by 16 Left Trade Union bodies protesting against the alleged anti people policy of the union government which had reportedly brought 'severe economic distress to the common people, specially the farmers and the senior citizens', Nagar said.


He said  among their demands were immediate roll back of the proposed move for the  privatisation of several public sector banks, withdrawal of more and more outsourcing of banking work, resumption of new appointments in vacant posts and in protest against the new pension scheme for Bank employees.


Incidentally, the banking services in the country would in fact be affected not only for one day today, but for three more days at a stretch from Saturday to Monday next when the Banks would also remain closed on 28, 29 and 30 November on accounts of second Saturday, Sunday and Monday ( because of Gugu Nanak's Birthday.)
