The United Forum of Reserve Bank Officers and employees has announced that its members will observe two days mass casual leave on September 4 and 5, in a bid to press for their long-pending demands over pension-related issues.

According to a press release, United Forum on Monday held a silent demonstration near the RBI office here which witnessed the participation of various leaders.

"To express deep resentment at the attitude of the officials of the Government of India, RBI staff members have waited too long and the limit of patience is crossing and are left with no alternative but to observe two consecutive days strike action ( Mass casual leave on 4 and 5 September, 2018)," it said.

The forum will also submit a memorandum to the respective regional directors of all RBI centres on 27 August.

The demands include updating of pension for contributory provident fund retainers and allow CPF/ additional provident fund for those recruited from 2012, among other demands.
