Next 11th Bipartite Settlement Meeting between Bank Union and Indian Banks Association is scheduled to be held on 5th May. Modi Government may gift increase in salary to bank workers keeping in view the upcoming Loksabha Elections. Government has started its efforts to convince angry voters of service class by targeting bankers first. After rounds of meeting between IBA and Bank Unions, the matter of Increase in salary of around 10 lakh bank workers is still pending since November 2017.

Central  Government has already written a letter followed by reminder to complete the wage negotiation process by 1st November 2017. But there is no significant development after rounds of bipartite meetings held between IBA and bank unions.

Demand for 25 percent increase in Salary

Bank Unions have demanded for 25 percent increase in salary in earlier meetings held between bank unions and IBA. But Indian Bank Association has not given any hint on what they want to give.

Around 10 Lakh Bankers to get benefits

With the implementation of 11th Bipartite Settlement, around 10 lakh bank employees across the country will get benefited. Government will also get benefits in upcoming Loksabha Elections.

Implementation History of Bipartite Settlement

Looking at the implementation history of bipartite settlement of bank employees, it is clear that salary revision never implemented on time and is being always delayed.
