Kolkata, Apr 5 (UNI) The much awaited negotiation to end the ongoing agitation in State Bank of India (SBI) branches failed tonight ending all hopes for immediate end to the nation-wide strike that entered third day.

According to SBI Staff Association general secretary Ahoke Dutta the tripartite meeting called in New Delhi by the Central Labour Commissioner with the the Union government on one side and bank employees on the other had failed because of the alleged adamant attitude of the former.

More than 2.10 lakh SBI employees of 9500 odd branches across the country have resorted to an indefinte strike from April three to press for their demand to increase the ceiling of the pension benefit and improve the amount of family pension.

However, with the failure of today's talk the strike was likely to continue for some more days before an amicable settlement was found.

Incidentally, Delhi high court in an interim order today called for settlement of the disputes by April 19.
