SBI–An indiscriminate fury let lose by them:

Let us talk of ‘bhookh insaan ko Ghaddar bana deti hai’….., the famous lines of Gopal Das ‘Neeraj’, the renowned poet of the modern era to trace the most intensive pangs of miseries certain blocks of people are tortuously undergoing in our country India –they very much include the ones being the families belonging to the deceased employees from State Bank of India ruthlessly denied as they are the benefit of compassion based appointment in the Bank. The sad irony is that it is quite happening under the very nose of the current incumbent-in-charge as the Chairman of the Bank Arundhati Bhattacharya who happens to be a woman, a woman traditionally applauded for her compassion and kindness in the country since ages. Compassion and kindness, it is said, springs up from their very heart.

Provision of such appointments is very much there called compassionate Appointment Scheme. In practical terms such an informal provision dates back to the days when this Bank was known as Bank of Bengal, one of the three Presidency Banks under the then British rule. It’s history and I need no indepth digging to justify my say. As on date the provisions for such appointments do exist as re-endorsed by the Government of India years back but the Bank has opted for a negative twist to the sheer setback to the members of deceased employee’s family and the relative requests for compassion based appointments are outrightly turned down on a printed proforma always kept handy as a cruel ritual. There is none to bother even the least to honestly peruse the merit part of the individual case with the result that the bereaved family members are forced to starve hankering for some source of sustentation.

By and large several of the management wings suffer from a negative propensity of relishing the plight of their subordinates along with their families irrespective of any reason or rhyme. Possibly a massive revolt is the only answer to such a barbarism.
