New Delhi, July 18 The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has summoned the General Manager (HRM), Indian Bank, for refusing to withdraw discriminatory guidelines for recruitment of women staff. The bank had allegedly framed rules which stated that if a woman candidate is three months pregnant, then she would be considered as ‘temporarily unfit’ and would not be given immediate joining upon her selection. The Delhi women's panel has taken suo-moto cognisance of media reports which stated that such guidelines were framed. DCW Chief Swati Maliwal has also written a letter to the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) seeking its urgent intervention into the matter. In response, the Indian Bank informed the commission that no new guidelines were issued by them on joining of women candidates in the state of pregnancy. They had rather adopted the existing guidelines issued by Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT).
