Subject: Disbursement of salary for the month of February 2017 on 27th February 2017 on account of nation-wide bank strike on 28th February 2017.
The United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) has given a nationwide strike call on 28th February, 2017. Banks are likely to remain closed on that day and even files for the e-payment of salary for the month of February 2017 which is due for 28th February, 2017 may not get processed resulting in salary of Central Government employees not being disbursed on 28th February 2017.
There being banks holidays on account of Maha Shivaratri (24th February, 2017) at many places, 4th Saturday (25th February, 2017) and Sunday (26th February, 2017), Hence, salary e-payment files processed on PFMS/COMPACT should be uploaded today i.e. 23rd February, 2017 with NPB of 27th February, 2017. If such files have already been uploaded with NPB of 28th February, 2017 the same also would need to be changed to facilitate payment of salaries on 27th February, 2017.
All Ministries/Departments are requested to take necessary action to upload their salary payments e-files latest by 23rd February, 2017 with NPB of 27th February, 2017 so that salary to the Central Government employees is paid in time.
All accredited banks are also requested to follow the above directions and release the salary for the month of February 2017 on 27th February 2017.
