Since 2012, RBI announced 4694 vacancies while it hired 315 for offices in Kolkata zone, which is 6.7% of total vacancies.
KOLKATA: Reserve Bank of India's leftist employees union, which is agitating against the mangement's hiring plans, has called on West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday and sought her support in their fight.

The union dubbed RBI's hiring plan "discriminatory" as the management announced merely 11 vacancies in Kolkata zone out of 926 vacancies overall. This is part of RBI's recruitment drive for "assistants" wherein it has notified 419 vacancies in Mumbai, 67 in Chennai, 34 in New Delhi among others.

The vacancies announced in Kolkata zone is even less than in a small centre such as Jammu, a union member said. Kolkata zone includes RBI offices West Bengal, Sikkim and Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

"Such scanty number is clearly an injustice to the highly educated, unemployed youth of this region. This is unbecoming of a pan Indian institution like RBI," All India Reserve Bank Employees Association general secretary Samir Ghosh said in a letter dated December 23 to Governor Shaktikanta Das.

He was part of the team that visited the chief minister Tuesday. "She has agreed to write to the finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on this matter," he told ET.

Since 2012, RBI announced 4694 vacancies while it hired 315 for offices in Kolkata zone, which is 6.7% of total vacancies.

"During this period, the number of retirees from class III and assistant managers (who are promoted from Class III) is much more than the intake," Ghosh told ET.
