Meeting with GM HRM: In the informal discussions held with GM HRM we were informed that the amendment to PPA for incorporating the Army Graduation Certificate was being thought of and hence the same may not be made applicable in the current process of promotions. It was explained that clause 4.6 of PPA clearly lays down that the " sub-staff members who have obtained a valid degree in any discipline from a recognized University shall be considered for promotion to the clerical cadre with out any test or interview, subject to he/she has acquired the qualification after recruitment in Bank's service., due to which litigation may come. And without sorting out this issue amending the clause in Clerical to JM Scale -1 may also be faced with complaints of discrimination. He desired to discuss in the policy committee and then arrive at an understanding. Federation would continue its efforts for early resolution of the issue.
