Iam an employee of State Bank of India. I joined the bank as an Assistant (Clerical Cadre) in 2009 in Thrissur, Kerala. In the year 2014 I submitted a request to the bank for inter circle transfer to Mumbai on the grounds of joining my spouse who was recruited by Bank of Baroda and posted to Mumbai. My tranfer request was processed and I joined SBI Mumbai in July 2014. I worked for six months in Kurla West branch and then went on a one year sabbatical leave from 7/1/2015 on the grounds of taking care of my three year old son. This leave was duly sanctioned by the authorities concerned. However in the month of September 2015 my husband resigned from BOB and joined Indian Overseas Branch Coimbatore. I had requested for a transfer to Mumbai only to join my spouse. But now he had moved to Coimbatore and it was difficult for me stay back in Mumbai alone with my son . So I submitted a request for transfer from Mumbai to Coimbatore on 07/10/2015. I was supposed to join back after my sabbatical leave on 07/01/2016. I had informed my branch manager as well as the Concerned authorities in the Regional Office , Zonal Office and Local Head Office of my inability to join in Mumbai . Subsequent to the submission of transfer request I had send three reminders by registered post to my branch as well as other higher officials. I had send two E-mails also stating my helplessness to join back in Mumbai and requesting them for a speedy processing of my transfer request. I received a mail from my Branch Manager on 8/01/2016 stating that" we have to advise that as per the service conditions and terms of sanction of sabbatical leave, you have to report to branch and resume duties after completion of sanctioned sabbatical leave or you have to apply for extension of sabbatical leave for consideration. If for any reason if you have not joined and resumed duties on or after Dt.08/01/2016, your absence will be treated as unauthorised leave. You are requested to take note of this." I had informed the branch that I will not be joining on 07/01/2016 and that I do not want extension of my sabbatical leave . I am willing to join the very next day if I am given a branch in Coimbatore. There has been no reply from the bank yet and I am still continuing my leave which would be unauthorised leave in the bank records. I doubt whether this would lead to a termination of my service from the bank. How should I deal with this. Please advise.
