BANGALORE: Members of the All India Bank Deposit Collector’s Workmen Union have urged the nationalised banks to increase their commission percentage from the existing 2 per cent to 3 per cent.

Speaking on the occasion of 4th Trilnel All India Conference 2012 on Saturday, they said that nationalised banks had been neglecting their demands for past several years. “We are being neglected despite a Karnataka High Court order to regularise the service of deposit collectors. Banks should implement that order,” said H D Ashok Kumar, general secretary of the union. “Our earnings are less than a daily wage worker. We get a salary of Rs 750 per month,” Shivananda Babu, a pigmy collector said.

M Shivanna, member of the National SC and ST Commission and Former Member of Parliament who presided over the event agreed to take up the matter with the Labour Department.
