TRAGIC DEATH OF A SECURITY GUARD : HE DIED DEFENDING THE ATM MACHINE AT THE COST OF HIS LIFE :

BANK’S MONEY SAVED:
(Written in connection with the murder of an ATM guard this morning at Badda)
1. You can not imagine what is the salary of a guard in the Banking Sector of Bangladesh. In one very strong bank with astounding CSR & benevolent activities it’s less than Tk 6000/00 after the deductions of Advance Income Tax. This particular bank, where the incident had taken place were paying all inclusive Tk 8000/00 per guard monthly for the last 11 years.
2. On the Eve of Eid-Ul-Fitr minus the guard his family might be in possession of Taka 1/2000 maximum as Bonus. Govt. had fixed Tk. 15,200/- as the minimum salary of a Security Professional. 95% banks have declined to pay this amount. Sonalil Bank has declared openly in the media that they have made a profit of Tk 3000 crores last year. They pay a Service Charge of only tK 630 per guard. Where as a pair of shoes costs these days Tk 800-1200.
3. Security Guards are not considered as Human Being. Most of the “Well to Dos” think they do not need anything other than to go to the toilet just 1 time in a Day as they hardly eat anything to discharge anything worth. You will be totally disoriented if you are to imagine a security guard’s meals in a Day. His living accommodations ; his family life ; his marriage; his children etc etc etc.
4. Elite Force has lost most of it’s business being vocal and vociferous to Advocate the Minimum Wage for a Guard. One bank enlisted 22 Vendors to get the rates even lower & lower. We are also incidentally one of the BIG defaulters, waging war against 800 security companies in the country to lower our price under extreme trying conditions. But fortunately we have some Premium Guards who are paid over Tk 1 lac + – by some Multi National clients. Alhamdulliah we have been able establish our Brand Value in the market, but the survival battle is Un ending !
@@ Only the Honourable Prime Minister may be able to fix things in this country- No one else for sure.
