Bringing cheers to lakhs of bank employees, the government has accepted the long-pending demand of workers to declare second and fourth Saturdays holidays, with effect from September 1.

Starting today, banks will be closed on 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. Last month, the government had accepted the long-pending demand of workers to declare second and fourth Saturdays holidays, with effect from September 1.

“The notification regarding Saturday off has come. It is effective from September 1,” All India Bank Employees’ Association (AIBEA) General Secretary C H Venkatachalam told PTI.

At present, all PSU and private sector banks work half-day on Saturdays.

“This is a welcome move. This will be a big relief to employees and I hope that this will improve the productivity of employees,” he said.

In case of a month having five Saturdays, banks will be closed only on second and fourth Saturdays.

                          The staff have not gained anything substantial in terms of working hours - except to get some Saays off. Presently they work for 4 hours each Saay = 208 hours of work on Saays in a year (52x4). Hereafter they will get 2x12 = 24 Saays off. In other words they will get 96 hours off. But they will work for 8 hours in the remaining Saays i.e 52-24 = 28 Saays. i.e They will work for 28x8 = 224 Hours. Hence they work for 224-208= 16 hours more in a year.

                            The working hours have been increased more than the amount of hours people were earlier working. In other words, the Banks had all 4 or 5 Saays 4 hours work. They agreed for 8 hours of work on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Saay (where there is a 5th Saay in a month) and opted for offs on the balance two Saays i.e 2nd and 4th Saay. So in fact they got more hours of work.

                              This demand has been there for the past 20 years or so and was agreed to long ago. It was only pending finalization of detailing. To say that it is Modi's vote bank politics may not be correct.

                                almost all govt offices remain closed on EVERY saay. Earlier there were half days in bank on saay. now 2 and 4th are holiday but remaining all saays are FULL WORKING DAYS. Banks didn't got 2 holidays. There were 4 half days, now its 2 full working and 2 holidays

                                  Chandu lives in a world of illusion. Doesn't know even machines too need rest. His comment that no work to be pending till task ends shows his third cl mentality. If so, then mostly no one will get time to spend with family. Seems eating too much Maggie has taken its toll on his brainless mind

                                    First there should be a study on whether five day working week in govt offices has increased productivity or not. If such study carried out, it should be in public domain.

                                      Instead of 2nd and 4th Saay, it should be 1st and 3rd Saay so that on 2nd Saay , bank transaction can be done by those who have only 2nd saay as off day in the month
