The Bank Employees Federation of India (BEFI)-Kerala has demanded a Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) probe into the irregularities in the sweeper appointments made by State Bank of Travancore(SBT).
The state committee meeting of the federation said that the documents regarding the indiscretion in appointments made to the Thrissur zone have already been sent to the Central Vigilance Commissioner.
“Apart from forging certificates, bogus voters IDs were also created to get the appointment. As of now over 1000 peon and sweeper vacancies lay vacant in SBT. Temporary employees are deployed in these posts without complying to stipulated guidelines.
The appointments made by SBT has not been transparent and raises suspicion. Hence, the CVC should inquire into all the recent appointments made by SBT,” said BEFI-Kerala general secretary C J Nandakumar.
