India Post needs to apply afresh to Reserve Bank of India for bank licence

NEW DELHI: India Post will have to apply afresh to the Reserve Bank under differential licence guidelines if it wishes to start banking operations. According to sources, aspirants, including the Department of Post, will have to apply once again after guidelines on differential bank licences are issued in the next few months. 

India Post was one among the 25 unsuccessful contenders for new bank licences. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) last month granted licences only to IDFC and Bandhan Financial Services Pvt Ltd. 

The applicants also included state-run IFCI and private sector Anil Ambani group and Aditya Birla group, Bajaj Finance, Muthoot Finance, Religare Enterprises and Shriram Capital. Recently, RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan had said it is committed to freeing entry in banking. 

"We just announced two new commercial bank licences after a rigorous vetting process. We are examining this experience, and after making appropriate changes, will announce a more regular process of giving licences - what has been termed licenses on tap," he had said At present, there are 27 public sector banks and 22 private sector lenders in the country. 

"The RBI can take more of a chance with new players if they get the licence to open only a small bank or to conduct only one segment of banking business. Such differentiated licences - licences with restrictions on the geographical reach or the products offered by a new bank - can generate more organisational variety and efficiency," Rajan had said. 

Small banks tend to be better at catering to local needs, including needs of small and medium businesses, he had said. A payments bank, which will take deposits and offer payment and remittance services but be constrained to invest all its funds in safe instruments such as government securities, could be very synergistic with other existing services, he had said. 

"For example, the proposed Post Bank could start as a payment bank, making use of post office outlets to raise deposits and make payments," he had said. New bank licences were issued by RBI in April to IDFC and Bandhan after a decade. Before this, the central bank had awarded licences to Kotak Mahindra Bank and Yes Bank in 2003-04.

   Excerpt of 'The Times of India' Mumbai edition dated 22/5/2014

Why is Annual Increment denied to employees retiring in June?

Until 01.01.2006, the date of implementing employee’s annual increment was fixed on the basis of his/her date of appointment or promotion option. After the 6th CPC, it was decided that 1st July of each year would be the uniform date of implementation of annual increment for all Central Government employees.
Employees who are appointed after January 1st are not eligible for that year’s annual increment on July 1. They qualify for annual increment only the next year.
The revised pay rules said that “If an employee is on leave or is availing joining time on the 1st of July, the benefit of annual increment in pay will be drawn only from the date on which he resumes duty and not from the first of July. Each year, employees who retire in the month of June are not given the annual increment of the year since they do not report to work on 1st July. Only those employees who resume duty on July 1st are eligible to receive the annual increment. Or, the day they report back to work is taken as the date for implementing the annual increment. Since there are no possibilities for the retired employees to return to work, they are not considered as qualified to receive the annual increment.
The revised pay rules states that only those who have been receiving the same basic pay continuously for 6 months are considered as qualified for annual increment. According to the another rule of qualification for increment, the person should have complete one year in service after receiving the annual increment. Therefore, despite being qualified, these employees are denied their annual increment.
There is an order that states that those who retire on July 1st should complete the retirement formalities in the month of June.
Instead of strictly looking into such technicalities, it would be a nice gesture on the part of the Government to extend the benefits of annual increment to those senior employees too who retire from service in the month of June.
