at the New Basic Pay.
5) Increase in HRA – parity with accommodation ceiling.

7) Leave – Cap on sick leave to be abolished. On the contrary, the sick leave may be tapered with lesser number of days at the beginning and more days in the latter stages of career.
8) Grid holidays – only 9 days holidays for those working in grid. Officers working in other offices get more than 20 days holidays in a year. Those Officers working additional 11 days in grid to be compensated for extra working days.

letter addressed to MD & CEO
United bank of India
Let me siege this opportunity of reiterating our age-old and unflinching faith and conviction in the principle of “Trade first and Union next”; and that till date, there has been no reason for us to deviate from this basic philosophy of our organization, which we have so lovingly cherished so long and has served as the corner stone of our solid foundation. We feel, Sir, that our Bank is at the cross roads. Unlike the previous situations, we have been thrown into huge challenges in almost all the parameters for ensuring all-round growth of our beloved Institution, which is providing bread & butter to all its employees, retirees and extending commercial & social services to millions of the customers around the nation. We are committed to play a much more decisive role vis-à-vis the growth & development of the Bank than ever before. We, on our part, shall stand committed to respond forthwith to any positive call given by you & your team of management.
The enormous multiplicity of trade unions may sometimes appear to be a hurdle in dealing with the issues pertaining to the human resources, but we have a strong belief that any issue can be resolved by mutual discussion and exchange of ideas.
Today we are submitting herewith our positive suggestions on a probable game changing revival strategy for an all-round turnaround of our beloved Bank for your kind perusal and effective consideration.
Thanks & regards,

REVIVAL PLAN FOR UNITED BANK OF INDIA
AS PERCEIVED BY UBIOEA
We are enclosing a plan for future operations for three years including current year (2016-2017) for our Bank. We have envisaged future plan for 3 years for our Bank (2016-2017 to 2018-2019) on the basis of following principles and expectations. We like to place these before the management of the Bank for their consideration and taking into account while fixing the year wise plan for the next 3 years officially. Our exercise is on the basis of our limited knowledge and as such our prepared plan for next 3 years may contain technical mistakes, which need to be corrected at experts’ level. But the principles on which out exercise is based need serious consideration at the level of management.
Principles of future plan for 3 years for United Bank of India (2016-2017 to 2018-2019):
1) We must target a reasonable & humble deposit growth rate instead of targeting an unrealistic growth rate. Having regard to the present situations of world economy as well as our economy, we have thought to restrict our deposit growth rates for coming 3 years as:
2016 – 2017: 7.4%
2017 -- 2018: 8.8%
2018 -- 2019: 10.3%
We should concentrate and focus all attentions in mobilizing retail deposits only. As a matter of policy we should avoid bulk deposits attracting special/preferential rates.
2) Having regard to the position of our Bank, particularly NPA position, and economic situation prevailing in the country, we should not go aggressively for credit growth/ expansion. In the year 2016---2017 (current year), we may restrict our credit growth to 5% only. Our mobilized resources may be deployed 42% in credit & 53% in investment leaving 5% for taking care of CRR and cash requirements. This is our suggestion only. This may be examined at the level of experts by the management.
Next year (2017 --- 2018), we may go for credit expansion and allocate more resources for credit growth. Hopefully our country’s economic situation will improve much from the second half of the current year. On these assumptions we have envisaged growth rates for credit & investment portfolios as under:
Year Credit Growth Investment Growth
2016 ---2017 5% 10.2%
2017 --- 2018 12% 3.0%
2018 ---2019 13.1% 5.9%
3) Our most important area of thrust should be recovery of existing NPA and to revamp credit supervision & follow up to a level, which we need at present, to stop slippage of standard assets to non-standard category i.e. to non-performing assets. We should target to resolve the NPA stock as on 31/03/2016 within next 3 years like:
Year NPA Reduction Target (Rs. In crore)
2016 –2017 3150
2017 –2018 3150
2018 – 2019 3170
We have also envisaged restricting slippages for standard assets to non-performing assets in the following manner:
Year Slippage Ratio
For achieving above mentioned targets in NPA recovery front and credit supervision/ follow up front, we need to organize extensive workshops on NPA recovery & credit follow up and retail credit delivery camps as well as NPA recovery camps. We request our management to consider these suggestions.
4) According to our assessment, to achieve the targets envisaged in our future plan for 3 years, we would require additional capital in the following manner:
Year Additional Capital Required (Rs. In crore)
2016---2017 500 (over 2015—2016)
2017—2018 1200 (over 2016—2017)
2018—2019 1400 (over 2017---2018)
As per our assessment, in these 3 years, our Bank may likely to generate surplus out of operations at projected level in the following manner:
Year Operating profit Net profit before Tax( Rs. In crore)
2016—2017 1700 100
2017---2018 2800 800
2018---2019 3300 1000
To comply with Basel III requirements of capital Adequacy, Bank may likely to require additional capital in these 3 years in the following manners:
Year Total Additional capital required
CRAR (Rs. In crore)
2016—2017 10.20 500 (over the level of 2015-2016)
2017---2018 11.00 1200 (over the level of 2016-2017)
2018---2019 11.50 1400 (Over the level of 2017-2018)
Part of the additional capital required can be mobilized out of net profit generated in these 3 years after taking care of tax payments and dividend payments. For the rest amount Bank have to seek help from Central Govt. and take resort to raising capital through Basel III compliant tier II bond. Our Association is ready to co-operate with the management in implementing the envisaged Future Plan for 3 years which is designed for development of our Bank aiming to protect the interests of the customers as well as employees of the Bank.
This Future Plan may require some changes at different tiers in view of latest RBI directives on Basel III requirements which may not be known to us. However, with our limited knowledge this is an honest effort on the part of our Association to show our commitment for the turnaround of our Bank and to protect the interests of the customers & employees of our Bank.
We hope that management would give due consideration.
