I take this opportunity to congratulate Com. Nadaf for having negotiated the best ever wage settlement for the officers in the banking industry. While the officers in scales I, II & III have got two extra stagnation increments, the senior comrades in scales IV & VI have got starting jump equal to two stagnation increments. The entitlement to travel by AIR for JMGS officers on LFC and the 65% increase in Halting Allowance are unprecedented. HATS OFF TO FEDERATION.Akhauri

SBIOA, Patna Circle

The Association was registered with the Registrar of Trade Union, Government of Bihar in 1975. From small beginning in 1972 when we had only 252 members, today we are a mighty organization having over 6200 members.
Since the inception, the affairs of the Association have been directed towards securing for the Officers fair and equitable conditions of service through bipartite process. The Circle Association has been publishing a bi-monthly periodical “SUP-POWER” which is registered with Registrar of Newspapers and Publications, New Delhi. The periodical gives valuable and current information concerning the members and the Bank.
The objects of the Association is to organize and unite all officers of State Bank of India and to have collective bargaining with the State Bank Management, to secure fair conditions of work and service, to redress the grievances of members to meet the economic, social, cultural and welfare needs of members.
Your Association survives on the strength of mutual bondage amongst the members over-riding Grades and Scales. This bond is strengthened by sharing of information and keeping oneself updated with the developments, both inside and outside the organization. “SUP-POWER” is a medium of communication but the advancement of technology necessitates faster communication. This website has been conceptualized and designed to facilitate faster communication. The site is highly informative and should be a great help to the membership in remaining abreast with the developments.
The Management has also provide Intranet facility to the Association which can be assessed on the address , which is available for our members in their work environment and can be put to maximum use for remaining connected with the latest developments. The website has links to Internet Banking, EMS, all Circulars and Magazines issued by the Association and the Federation as well as links to HR Deptt. of our circle wherein members can view the pending IMT/ICT applications etc.
