Why SBI changed IFSC codes?

According to the bank’s managing director (retail and digital banking), Praveen Gupta, “Some of our old associate branches are getting merged with SBI branches. When that merger happens, the IFSC codes get changed,” Gupta says, “Customers have been informed about the change in IFSC codes, but internally also the bank has mapped them to the new codes.”

“Even if some payment comes based on the old IFSC codes, it will get mapped with the new codes. It will not cause any problem to any customer,” he added.

IFSC Code

Indian Financial System Code, or IFSC, is an 11-digit alpha-numeric code used to uniquely identify all bank branches participating in any RBI regulated funds transfer system.

The IFSC code is required to transfer money from one account to another using RTGS, NEFT or IMPS methods.

Does the Postal Operative staff are being en-Slaved by its Administration?

All the Postal Operative Offices facing the problems of Shortage of staff, Outdated Electronics, Very Poor Power Back-up, Poor Network Connectivity, Pirated and Non Certified Softwares, Not responding and user-enemy state of Finacle server, CSI and RICT migration issues. 
Even with the Acute-Shortage of Clerical Staff, The Administration sets 'Most Important Priority' for all the Targets and Various Statistical Reports so they demanding everything should have to be Achieved and must be Submitted without any Delay. Eventhough the Administration receiving so many e-Mails, Several Notices by the Unions, RTI Enquiries, Public Complaints, Departmental Requisition regarding the problems faced by the Postal Operative Office; Not only they simply delaying/rejecting to settle those Requests but instead of settling those Issues they only Focusing on Conducting Drives In the name of "Mela", "Fiscal Year Target", "Special Day", "Special Week". Also the Administration demanding all the PA & GDS to achieve the target or force them to open Self Accounts and give pressure by 'Repeated Phone Calls', "Circulars', 'By-Name Notices', 'Drive Meetings', 'Drive Visits' to acheive the targets of SB, RD, SSA, PMSBY, PMJJBY, APY, RPLI, PLI, GOLD BOND, PHILATELY, Western Union, IMO, MOBILE MONEY, POS SWIPE, FRANKING, e-Post, BD Revenue Target etc.

Due to the Shortage of Postal Clerk Leave gets Rejected/Reduced and still a Postal Operator have to work '6 days a week' while the Administration got only '5 days a week'. Also The Administration rejecting the Postal Operative Union's proposal of 5 days a week to the Operative Staff by quoting the following reason (i.e), "The Public will severely affect otherwise they will find the Alternative". So, then for the 6th day, Why don't they provide OTA otherwise Why don't they Withdraw the '5 days a week' to the Administrative Offices if Deparmental Revenue and Service is their Primary concern. In addition to this, they are Over-Burdening the work of the Leave, Vacant place on the shoulders of the Other Operative Staff 'without' giving any Substitutes. i.e., If a Postman or Gds applies for leave then an arrangement is there as a Substitute but for a Postal Clerk there is No Arrangement! Nor those Vacancies filled for several years.

DOPT trying best to clear backlog of promotions: Dr Jitendra Singh : PIB

DOPT trying best to clear backlog of promotions: Dr Jitendra Singh : Press Information Bureau

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) is trying its best to clear the backlog of promotions which had accumulated for several years. He said, while the Government led by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi follows a policy of zero tolerance towards corrupt and non-performing officers, at the same time it is also supportive towards performing officers of integrity.
Dr Jitendra Singh was responding to a delegation of Central Secretariat employees who called on him here today and sought his intervention for timely promotion of lower grade staff members. They also submitted a memorandum on behalf the Central Secretariat MTS Association, wherein it was submitted that many of the lowermost working professionals in the Government of India get deprived of even single promotion during their entire service tenure.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, in order to bring in the ease of governance as well as objectivity in empanelments, the government has, in the last three years, improvised upon the procedures so as to ensure that there are no subjective preferences involved in carrying out the promotions. The procedures have been made more hi-tech using sophisticated technology tools to minimize the human interface, he added.

He said that in the past, every government took credit for bringing in a new legislation or rule while this government has done away with nearly 1500 rules which were either obsolete or had become irrelevant with the passage of time. All this is meant not only to ensure effective and timely delivery of outcomes for the public, but also to enable the employees to perform to the best of their ability, he added.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, he himself personally feels disturbed to come across cases where some of the employees working in the lowest rung of administration spend their entire service tenure of 30 to 35 years without securing a single promotion. He said, he has discussed the issue with all the senior officers in the Ministry and several innovative means are being evolved to avoid stagnation at middle and lower rungs of administration.

Dr Jitendra Singh also regretted that in a large number of cases, stagnation in promotions was the result of litigation amongst the employees themselves and even though the DoPT tries its best to put forward its view in the court of law, the delay becomes inevitable.
