It has come to the notice of this office that United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) has called for a nationwide bank strike on 30th and 31st May 2018. Banks are likely to remain closed on that days and even files for the e-payment of salary for the month of May 2018, which is due for 31st May 2018, may not get processed, resulting in delay in disbursal of salary to Central Government Employees.
2. All the Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs (Independent Charge) are, therefore, advised to consult their accredited banks in this regard and if any delay is foreseen in disbursement of salary on 31st May 2018 by the accredited banks, due to strike, necessary instructions may be issued to all the field PAOs/DDOs to upload salary payment files of Central Government Employees with NPB date as 29th May 2018 (last working day for bank, if strike materializes), and ensure that same reaches the banks latest by 25th May 2018.
3. This issues with the approval of Competent Authority.
