“There will be no impact on the service conditions of the employees and there will be no retrenchment following the merger,” Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said.
BoB also finalised the share swap ratio for merger of Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank with itself.
As per the scheme of amalgamation, shareholders of Vijaya Bank will get 402 equity shares of BoB for every 1,000 shares held.
In case of Dena Bank, its shareholders will get 110 shares for every 1,000 shares of BoB.
The government in September last year had announced merger of Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank, with larger peer BoB. The merged bank will become the country’s second largest public sector bank (after SBI) and will “help create a strong globally competitive bank”, the government said in a statement.
