Female bank staffers may soon get transfers of their choice
Female employees of public sector banks will soon be entitled to a major benefit of getting transfers of their choice. The Finance Ministry has asked the banks to formulate women-friendly transfer policies so that they can get transfers at places where their husbands are working or parents are living. The Department of Financial Services, sources said, has asked Public Sector Banks (PSBs) to formulate transfer and posting polices in such way so as to minimise "hardship" of women employees. "...it has been decided to accommodate as far as possible placement/transfer of married employees, on her request, at a place where her husband is stationed or as near as possible to that place or vice versa," said a communication of the Department to head to PSBs.
