JAMMU, Jan 15: Members of J&K Khidmat Centres Association here today staged a protest demonstration demanding their absorption in J&K Bank as regular employees.
Addressing the protesters, the Association leader Tehseen Hussain said, in the year 2009 Khidmat Centres were started by J&K Bank with the assurances that these centres will become the centres of participation for the public.
He claimed that initially J&K Bank had promised to route G2C (Government to Customer), B2C (Business to Customer) and B2B (Business to Business) services through Khidmat Centres but the same never happened.
The protesters said that continuous exploitation and overlooking for almost a decade has compelled the professionals with Khidmat Centres to demand permanent solution for their miseries.
They also said that this negligence has put career of many well educated youth at risk so the J&K Bank should engage those associated with these Centres as employees in the Bank.
A handout of the Association claimed that in a meeting with the then Chairman of J&K Bank on May 13, last year positive signals were given to the demand of employment in the Bank for those associated with Khidmat Centres.
