Government clears Compassionate Appointment Scheme in Banks
Units are aware that the earlier Scheme of Appointment on Compassionate grounds on the death of employees while in service was discontinued in the Banks under the plea of a Supreme Court judgment.

We have been pursuing the issue earnestly and consistently and in October, 2012, UFBU submitted the letter to the IBA asking for extension of the Government scheme of compassionate appointments. The issue was lingering since then even though, we were informed that the IBA-Government were positive on this issue.
