Hence, a separate Transfer / placement Policy taking into account the problems of the lady officers should be designed and forwarded to the member banks by IBA

Yet another major consideration is their safety and security at different centers.

The lady Officers need to be extended the benefit of flexi-time and flexi-place concept. They should be given choice of their place at the time of transfer and placement keeping their difficulties in view. The Banks should be advised to keep one exclusive lady Officer in charge of Personnel Administration in all the Banks to attend to their exclusive issues including transfer, placement etc.

The lady Officers whose spouses are working elsewhere should be accommodated at the same place. Similarly, where the wife and husband are employed in the same bank, they should also be accommodated at the same centre. The spouse policy given by the Government should be implemented in toto.

Flexi timing as well as work from home facility should be introduced for a limited period of 3 years during the entire service.

  1. SCI increased maternity leave.
    Posting decided & normally allowed on priority.
    Sick leave & PL are sufficient for infertility.
    Definition of family: earning of dependents is normally more
    Flexi time In power of BM but ladies have to decide among herselves.
    Work from home presently system will not allow.
    SO IT MAY AFFECT THE SETTLEMENT ADVERSELY.

  2. CCL should be available to lady staff for better n proper care of their children as maternity leave alone is just not sufficient enough.
