Banks Employees Hiring: There has been a huge decline in the number of employees in public sector banks. The number of employees has been decreasing continuously over the last 10 years. Now the government has asked government banks to prepare a recruitment plan to overcome the shortage of employees.
Last week, bank heads held a meeting with top officials of the Finance Ministry, in which banks have been asked to prepare an action plan to increase the number of employees. The Finance Ministry has asked banks to prepare a blueprint for making appointments on a monthly basis. The Bank recruits employees through Institute of Banking Personnel Selection.
Number of private banks doubled
In 2012-23, the number of employees in public sector banks was 886490. Which has come down to 770800 in 2020-21. At the same time, the number of employees in private banks has doubled. The number of employees in private banks has increased from 229124 to 572586 during this period. The biggest decrease has come in the number of bank clerks and subordinate staff. In 2012-23, there were 398,801 clerks in public sector banks, whose number has come down to 274249, while the number of subordinate staff was 153628, which has come down to 110323. At the same time, the number of officers has increased from 334061 to 386228 in the same period.
Shortage of stock in public sector banks!
Public sector banks have one employee for 1000 customers. Whereas in the private sector there is one employee for 100 to 600 employees. From these figures, the shortage of employees in public sector banks can be estimated. Employees have not been recruited in proportion to the number of branches that banks have opened in a decade. According to RBI data in March 2021, the number of branches of banks has increased by 28 percent in 10 years and has increased to 86,311.

The Finance Minister said that till December 1, 2021, out of the total sanctioned posts in public sector banks, 5 percent i.e. 41,177 posts are lying vacant. The Finance Minister said that according to the information received from public sector banks, 95 percent of the sanctioned posts are filled. The posts which are vacant are lying vacant due to reasons other than the retirement of the employees.
