At the call of All India Regional Rural Bank Employees’ Association (AIRRBEA) about 70,000 (seventy thousands) officers and employees of 82 Regional Rural Banks (popularly known as Gramin Bank) working at around 17,000 (seventeen thousands) rural branches in all the States of the country including the employees and officers of Haryana Gramin Bank observed Strike today i.e. 8th June, 2012 with the following long pending demands:-
1) Parity of Pension

3) Regularization/absorption of part-time/daily waged workers in RRBs.
4) Withdrawal of Govt. order on H.R. Policy
5) Representation of workman and officer in the Board of Management.
In spite of the specific direction of the Hon’ble Supreme Court to extend parity of wage structure to the RRB staff, more specifically by Hon’ble Karnataka High Court and Rajasthan High Court to extend parity of pension benefits, Govt. of India has not yet extended the benefit of pension to the RRB staff.
AIRRBEA has been demanding for the constitution of National Rural Bank of India with State level RRB under it with the amalgamation of all the RRBs exclusively for rural and agricultural credit on delinking the RRBs from Sponsor Banks.
All the above noted demands are long pending with Govt. of India.
