According to a press release, bank employees and officers across all branches in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh today staged demonstrations against the bank administration over pending pension cases and several other issues.
Bank Officers Association general secretary Ravi Bilgaiya and Workmen Union’s general secretary Pramod Naramdeo said the apathetic attitude of the bank and Government towards the pending pension cases of the past 12 years was highly disappointing.

In order to launch a formal agitation, a delegation of the bank employees would present a memorandum to the administration heads of the bank and also to the Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Governor of Reserve Bank of India to apprise them of
their problems and demands. Officer’s Association’s President P K Shrivastav, Workmen Union’s President G C Jaiswal and senior office bearers A N Banerjee, R C Vyas, Gopal Rathore, Tariq Ansari, O P Borana, J S Uppal, Arun Bhagoliwal, Pankaj Saxena, Hameed Ullah Khan, Suresh Chavaria, J D Mishra, Sunil Shrivastav, Anil Vashisht, Niranjan Verma and others along with several officers and employees of the bank participated in the protest today.
