Maharashtra's State Level Bankers' Committee (SLBC) is likely to meet the state's chief secretary on Wednesday for allowing bank employees here to use local train services, a source said. Since Monday, Western and Central Railways have resumed select local train services in the financial capital to ferry those providing essential services as identified by the state government.
Bank employees, however, have said that they are not being allowed to use the suburban train services as they are not in the list of essential services provided by the state.
The issue will be discussed tomorrow during the meeting with the chief secretary of Maharashtra, said a person familiar with the matter.
The SLBC convenor in the state is the Bank of Maharashtra.
On Monday, Maharashtra State Bank Employees Federation (MSBEF) wrote to the state's chief secretary, requesting to allow bank employees to use the suburban train services.
We earnestly request you to please extend this service to the bank employees to enable them to report to their duties regularly. This will also facilitate extending full-fledged banking services to all, the letter said.
