All Government Banks Are Closed From 8 - 15 March
A reputed government bank official says that between March 8 and March 15, work in public sector banks is expected to come to a complete halt. Actually Sunday is March 8. After this, banks are closed in most states due to Holi on 9-10 March.
The Union Bank Employees' Federation of India (BEFI) and All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) of state-run banks are on a nationwide strike from March 11-13 over their demands. Banks will remain closed due to the second Saturday and Sunday on 14 and 15 March.
Accordingly, it is not possible to do any work in the second week of March. The official further informed that some states do not have Holi holiday on March 9, due to which work can be done partially.
Bank Employees Are On Strike Due To This
A union official said that the bank employees are going on strike to demand their salary. Actually, the salary of bank employees and officers is revised every five years. Under these rules, the government had revised the salary in 2012, but after that no action has been taken on it.
The bank unions had also demanded two wiki off from the government. But this demand has also not been met. That is why the bank employees have decided to strike once again.
