Addressing to protesters, in favour of various Corporation Bank Employees Unions leaders alleged that the merger of Public Sector banks would mean closure of 6 banks which would disaster for the growth of economy of the country. BJP government at the centre had unveiled a mega plan to merge ten public sector banks into four to create fewer and stronger global-sized bankers as it looks to revive economic growth.

Government may call is merger which have been built up over the years will disappear from banking scenario. We are opposing the merger of banks. We will organize various protest programmes against the merger or amalgamation of banks.

Due to merger of banks could possibility of unemployment in the country. The reducing bank branches will reduce the right of the people of urban areas.


While maintaining there was no immediate fear of retrenchment since the banks were already facing a crippling staff shortage? We are in a situation when bank branches are closing down and yet it is not like the weak banks have been merged with strong banks. What are the criteria for compatibility? They asked.

The most important thing is that you need economic stability, mergers will not bad to revival. It doesn’t have any logic behind it. We see the banks from within, this will not help, they added.
