Bankers to get two saturdays / month as holiday, but when ?
As per the MOU signed by IBA and UFBU with reference to Xth Bipartite Agreement, second and fourth saturdays of every month will be bank holidays. Though they will have to work the other saturdays full time.
The question among bankers that from when they can enjoy this extra holidays as it was hard previously that banks would be closed on alternative saturdays from April itself. But practically bank employees may have to wait a bit more to get the holidays.
As per information available with us, at first the final bipartite agreement will be signed, possibly within two months. Then it will be sent to central Govt. and the Government will finally declare the additional holidays. Most likely bank employees may get the saturday holidays after a couple of months only.
