IN VIEW of the problems being faced by Government employees and officers in drawing salaries and other Government payments due to the ongoing bank strike, the State Government has made alternative arrangements.
Orders to this effect have been issued to all heads of departments, divisional commissioners, district collectors, treasury officers and sub treasury officers by the Finance department.
In addition to State Bank of India, some branches of Central Bank of India, Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, State Bank of Indore, Union Bank of India, UCO Bank and Allahabad Bank have been authorised to do government transactions.
These branches have been authorised for making payment of salaries to employees and for other Government payments and receipts.
In case of departments the cheques of which have already been issued by treasuries but the Drawing and Disbursing Officers have not deposited them in the bank for payment, the treasury officer would replace the name of the State Bank of India by the bank included in the attached list and return them to the Drawing and disbursing officers.
The officer would, in turn, would present the cheques to the branch of the bank for payment and the payment would be made as per rules.
In cases where treasuries have not issued cheques to offices, the cheques for payment ranches of the authorised banks. These branches would ensure necessary arrangements for deposit of the challan for the payable amount to the State Government, so that the taxpayers have no inconvenience in depositing the amount.
The authorised bank branch would send the statement of income and expenditure of the State Government every day to the nodal branch, which would in turn send it to the Reserve Bank of India, Bhopal. The arrangement would be in place till continuation of the strike of the officers and employees of the State Bank of India (SBI).
