Public sector banks plan common interview for jobs

KOLKATA: It may become a lot easier to get a job at nationalised banks. Banks are planning to have a common interview that could open up opportunities in one go in many banks for candidates, who now have to give multiple interviews for jobs in various banks.

Public sector banks, which recruit about 30,000-40,000 people a year on an average, expect to save time and cost once this common interview becomes a reality. As many as 20 banks are expected to give the mandate to Institute of Banking Personnel Selection, or IBPS, to conduct the common interview on their behalf. IBPS also conducts common written test for these banks.

Senior bank executives said the governing body of IBPS had come up with the suggestion and the member banks gave their in-principle consent to the proposal at a meeting held on September 14. Banks are now required to get the respective board clearance before they give IBPS the final mandate. This looks a certainty as the selection body is run by senior bank executives with Bank of BarodaBSE 0.97 % chief MD Mallya being the chairman, while Punjab National BankBSE 1.84 % chairman KR Kamath, Canara Bank's S Raman and IDBI Bank's RM Malla are some of the members. 
 The new system may be introduced as early as this year itself and candidates who took the common written exam on June 17 may be the first to attend the common interview. Over 7.5 lakh candidates took the exam for probationary officers and the result is expected in the first week of October.

"Standardisation of the selection process will reduce the workload for banks," said a governing body member of IBPS. "The present system is not time and cost-effective." IBPS director AS Bhattacharya declined to comment.

In the present system, a few top candidates appear for multiple interviews of different banks and they tend to get offer letters from most banks. The next lot gets the opportunity only when the first lot is absorbed, making the hiring process lengthy.

Sources said that IBPS is planning to waive the fee for appearing in the common interview. At present, candidates need to shell out Rs 150-250 per interview, which banks recover from candidates as the cost for conducting interviews.

State Bank of India will not be part of this common selection test, although its chairman Pratip Chaudhuri is a member of IBPS governing body. Reserve Bank of India executive director R Gandhi and financial services joint secretary Umesh Kumar are also members.

IRDA to develop mechanism for faster approval of policies

NEW DELHI: Sector regulator IRDA will soon develop a mechanism for faster approval of insurance policies and encourage companies to come out with low premium products for increasing insurance penetration, a senior government official said today.

"Roadmap has been agreed upon for faster approval of products (by IRDA)," Financial Services Secretary D K Mittal told reporters here after a meeting between Finance Minister P Chidambaram and IRDA Chairman J Hari Narayan.

The meeting dealt with issues relating to increasing insurance penetration and augmenting investment flow into the infrastructure sector.

Some decisions are expected by today or tomorrow, Mittal added.

"The meeting discussed how to increase insurance penetration, how insurance companies can do more business, how better products can be introduced at lower premium, and how more investments can flow into infrastructure sector," Mittal said.

The insurance companies has been demanding from the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) faster clearances of products filed with it.

At a meeting with Chidambaram, relaxation in investment norms to help the sector earn more premium was also discussed.

The Finance Ministry is now looking at the possibility of relaxing norms for insurance companies to attract more funds for the infrastructure sector as part of efforts to prop-up the sagging economy.

As per estimates, the investment corpus with the life insurance companies is around Rs 13 lakh crore. Of this, only 20 per cent currently goes towards the infrastructure sector.

As per the current Insurance Regulatory Development Authority (IRDA) norms, insurance companies can invest only in highest rated 'AAA' or 'AA' credit-rated debt paper.

Life insurance companies are allowed to invest up to 50 per cent in government securities, 15 per cent in infrastructure bonds and 35 per cent in other investment grade corporate bonds and equities.

The regulator is at present mulling options to allow sector companies to invest more in non-AAA rated securities, including 'A+' and 'A' papers of corporates.

Last year, the Department of Industrial Policy had favoured allowing life insurance companies to invest in greater quantity in non-AAA rated debt instruments to encourage flow of funds to the infrastructure projects.

India needs about a trillion dollar investment in the infra space during the 12th Five-Year Plan (2012-17).

Facebook 'gifts' launch, users can send presents to each other

NEW YORK: Facebook is rolling out a service called Gifts which, as its name suggests, lets users send chocolate, coffee, socks and other real-life presents to one another.
Facebook Gifts launched Thursday to a subset of users in the US and will roll out to more over the coming months as people begin to send gifts to each other.
Users will be able to click on a "gifts" icon on their Facebook friends' pages on Facebook's website or on Android mobile phones with iPhone and iPad versions expected to come soon.
The icon will also show up on the right side of users' Facebook pages with the notifications for friends' birthdays, weddings and other life events. For example, if your friend's birthday is coming up in two days, you'll now see a "give her a gift" link and the gift icon next to her name and photo.
Clicking the icon will display presents users can buy, such as a Starbucks gift card, cupcakes or a teddy bear.
The recipient will be notified through Facebook to enter a shipping address for the presents. In some cases, they'll be able to select their own cupcake flavors or size and style of socks. They can also exchange gifts for other items if they don't like chocolate or don't wear socks.
The move represents Facebook Inc.'s first real foray into e-commerce. The company will take an unspecified cut from each item sold. On Thursday, possible gifts included gourmet ice cream, Andy Warhol prints, flowers, organic dog toys and spa packages.
Facebook Gifts is the result of Facebook's acquisition of Karma, a 16-person startup based in San Francisco. Facebook bought the company on May 18, the day of its rocky initial public offering. Karma's mobile app let people send gifts to their friends on the go.
Lee Linden, the former head of Karma, is now head product manager for Facebook Gifts, which he says incorporates "the heart and soul of the Karma experience."
"We think gifting is a form of communication," he said.

Fighting sexual harassment at work

In today's corporate environment, its inhabitants are put under various kinds of pressures. Arshie Chevalwala speaks to experts about one such nuisance, sexual harassment

Effects of sexual harassment can vary depending on the individuality or personality of the recipient, and the severity and duration of the harassment. Often, sexual harassment incidents fall into the category of the "merely annoying." In other situations harassment may lead to temporary or prolonged stress and/ or depression depending on the recipient's psychological abilities to cope up with it, and the social support or lack of it for the recipient. Victims who do not submit to harassment may also experience various forms of retaliation, including isolation and bullying.

"Coping with harassment at work is a very stressful task. What really helps is support from the management. It is vital that companies provide a nurturing environment where victims feel confident enough to approach them and report an instance," suggest Rupa Dutta (name changed), an employee who was subject to harassment at work.

Dr. Arvind Gupta, consultant psychiatrist, Max Hospital talks about the common effects on the victims. He says, "Some of the psychological and health effects that can occur are depression, anxiety and/or panic attacks, sleeplessness and/or nightmares, shame and guilt, difficulty concentrating, headaches, fatigue or loss of motivation, stomach problems, eating disorders (weight loss or gain), alcoholism, feeling betrayed and/or violated, feeling angry or violent towards the perpetrator, feeling powerless or out of control, increased blood pressure, loss of confidence and self esteem, withdrawal and isolation, overall loss of trust in people, traumatic stress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), complex post-traumatic stress disorder, suicidal thoughts or attempts, suicide."

Common psychological, professional, financial, and social effects of sexual harassment and retaliation pointed out by Dr. Gupta are:

- Psychological stress and health impairment
- Decreased work performance as a result of stress conditions; increased absenteeism in fear of harassment repetition
- Firing and refusal for a job opportunity can lead to loss of job or career, loss of income;
- Being objectified and humiliated by scrutiny and gossip
- Defamation of character and reputation
- Loss of trust in environments similar to where the harassment occurred
- Loss of trust in the types of people that occupy similar positions as the harasser or his or her colleagues, especially in case they are not supportive, difficulties or stress on peer relationships

Weakening of support network, or being ostracized from professional or academic circles ( friends, colleagues, or family may distance themselves from the victim, or shun him or her altogether). Thus, sexual harassment is a known menace of today's corporate environment and employers are taking active measure to prevent and contain bad behavior. Pragya Kumar, HR head at concurs, "Sexual harassment is one of the key employee grievances today and knows no gender bar. Corporates must conduct annual workshops and regular training sessions for the employees wherein they are taught the importance of maintaining a congenial working environment, keeping it a safe, happy and secured one. We ensure a close monitoring of the work places and a free and transparent interaction with manager and as well at the employee level in order to keep a tap on the decorum. To keep a complete check on such issues cropping up at the workplace, we have incorporated policies that ensure an environment that is conducive for the growth of our employees in every aspect."

Steps to prevent sexual harassment 
- Get high-level management support Obtain high-level support from the chief executive officer and senior management for implementing a comprehensive strategy to address sexual harassment.

- Write and implement a sexual harassment policy

- Develop a written policy, which prohibits sexual harassment in consultation with staff and relevant unions.

- Ensure that managers and supervisors discuss and reinforce the policy at staff meetings. Verbal communication of the policy is particularly important in workplaces where the literacy of staff may be an issue.

- Periodically review the policy to ensure it is operating effectively and contains up-to-date information. (c) Provide regular training and information on sexual harassment to all staff and management

- Conduct regular training sessions for all staff and management on sexual harassment and the organisational policy. This training should be behaviourally based which means it should increase knowledge and understanding of specific behaviours that may amount to sexual harassment under the Sex Discrimination Act. Regular refresher training is recommended.

AC train fares to increase by more than 3% from October 1

NEW DELHI: With the exit of Trinamool Congress from UPA, finance ministry has decided to levy service tax on AC rail travel and freight services fares, which are set to increase by 3.7% from October 1.

Fares of AC first class, executive class, AC-2 tier, AC-3 tier, AC chair car will go up by 3.7% from October 1 and a notification to this effect will be issued on Thursday, a senior railway ministry official said.

The decision for levying service tax on AC classes and freight and auxiliary services was taken on Wednesday at a meeting between railway minister CP Joshi and finance minister P Chidambaram.

The service tax will apply to tickets issued in advance for journeys to commence on or after the date of its implementation. In case of tickets already issued excluding service tax, it will be ensured that the same is recovered either by TTEs in the train or by the booking offices before commencement of journey.

In case of cancellation of tickets by the passengers, service tax will not be refunded by railways, the official said.

On concessional tickets, service charges will be 30% of the total fare.

The service tax is 12.36% but after the abatement of 70% it will be 3.708% on passenger fares in AC classes and freight.

Passengers travelling in AC classes were brought under service tax from July this year as per the Finance Bill 2012 but the levy had since been kept in abeyance because of opposition by the TMC.

Freight rate will also go up by 3.708% from October. However, auxiliary services rendered at stations like catering and parking will have to bear the burden of 12.36% as there will be no abatement on these services.

Service tax on freight was announced in 2009-10 Union Budget but then railway minister Mamata Banerjee had protested the move.
