Bank officers are victimised only because judicial process is delayed

Government framed policy for posting of bank employees in Villages as also for posting in North Eastern States to promote rural banking and to help development work in rural areas and North Eastern states is more often than not misused. Whenever self interest of an executive is not served by an officer he issue transfer order for him for either remote villages or for critical branches located in North East States Obviously management of banks have always misused this excellent policy to discard non-flatterers and to torture those employees who do not indulge in corrupt practices and who do not implements bad orders of the executives.
RBI or any investigating agency on honest inquiry will find that some officers have been working in villages for two or three decades whereas flatterers of the top officials of the management have been allowed to work in Metros for decades together. When an officer do not provide gifts to General Manager, he is posted in North Eastern States on the plea of Non Performance whereas those who commit fraud or indulge in irregular credits but always provide golden gifts to GMs, DGMs, AGMs in the name of some function either of inauguration or customer’s meeting are allowed to remain in big towns.
Some officers are simply creating bad advances and some others are constrained to recover the bad advances merely to save the corrupt officers from punishment. This is why loans or advances become Sub Standard in one or two years of its disbursement. It is also a bitter fact that such bad advances are concealed by gifting Auditors and inspectors and treated as good advances till the sanctioning officer wither is promoted or get safe exit from the bank. Honest workers are made scapegoat for the misdeeds of big executives.. It is undeniably truth that excellent results exhibited through annual balance sheets are due to devoted work of good performers and it is they who are salvaging banks from the misdeeds of bad officers. As such shining balance sheet of a bank should not give conclusion that the results shown are hard work of top officials sitting in AC rooms but that of field workers who are head of a branch and who is doing hard worker even under acute manpower shortage. In banks manpower is adequately provided only to flatterers even if he has caused banks crores of rupees. Until RBI or CBI catch hold of corrupt executives and punish the evil performers and at the same time award those officers who have been whimsically kept away from promotions and unless good officers are given respectable posting and promotions one cannot imagine of any rise in intrinsic value of any bank
On the contrary PSU banks are facing erosion in intrinsic value due to dirty implementation of apparently good HRD policies. In the name of Interview any employee can be deprived of and denied of promotion. Power makes executive corrupt if the decisions made by them are not transparent and subject to review. Root cause of persistence and promotion of such corrupt officers is due to the bitter fact that even courts fail to provide justice in decades together and this is why management bosses indulge in whimsical promotions, arbitrary transfers and postings.
I request bank officers to send their personal experience and story of corrupt officers to me at so that such illustration may be incorporated in PIL to be filed in the court. These information will be helpful in seeking information from bank under Right to Information Act to expose the true colour of officers who have been holding top posts in the bank and who have been getting continuous shelter from Banking division, RBI and Ministry of Finance. The aggrieved officer may also send the real story about them, how they have been cheated by their bosses, how they have been denied promotion and how they have been given always critical posting. After all how long you will bear with injustice in fear of repercussion from higher authorities. One has to come out of imaginary fear and expose the true picture of bad officers. How long meritorious and talented officer will face humiliation and posting against their dignity.
I will come with name of AGM,DGM ,GM,CM and BM and tell the officer community and Government of India how reign of injustice prevails in the banking industry. I need your cooperation in making a strong case against some of CMDs who are recognized as star performers but under the shelter of such CMDs ,their left and right hand officers who themselves are facing CBI charge sheets are exploiting power for self interest.
