Public Sector Banks in India to hire 63,200 people this year: Finance Minister P. Chidambaram

Public Sector Banks (PSB) in India will hire 63,200 people in the current financial year, finance minister P. Chidambaram said Thursday. Nearly a third of these vacancies will be filled by the largest public sector lender State Bank of India alone.

Finance minister P. Chidambaram at a media conference after meeting heads of public sector banks and financial institutions here in New Delhi said “There is huge job opportunities for young men and women in banks… public sector banks will hire 63,200 people this year.”

The country’s largest bank SBI will alone recruit 20,000 clerical staff and 1,200 officer level employees.

Besides, other public sector banks will hire 22,000 officers and 20,000 clerical staff in this fiscal.

Chidambaram said there were a total of 84,489 vacancies in the public sector banks at the end of the last financial year, of which 63,200 posts will be filled up in 2012-13.

The finance minister said the fresh recruitment will be in clerical as well as officers’ positions.

“It’s a very attractive career, and young men and women must take advantage of it,” he said.

Chidambaram said private sector banks were also likely to increase their headcounts in the current financial year.

  1. really this is marvellous news

    Sir,
    No doubt it is a very good news for the bank aspirants but again the IBPS & the SBI has changed its eligibility norms by lowering the age from 30yrs to just 28yrs for the general candidates for the PO posts. This will surely affect the general candidates. 
                      As such there is so much unemployment crisis and over that the IBPS is going on putting one upon the other conditions. Instead of increasing the age limit, it is lowering it. The SC, ST & OBC’s have no effect because as such they are getting age relaxations and reservations. The one who will suffer are the general candidates. Atleast it should be 30yrs for all govt. jobs officer post.

  3. Good News for All Aspirants.

  6.  WRONG
    “sbi n public banks to fill 63200 vacancies by march 2013”

     BUT
    TILL NOW SBI FILLED CLERK=20000
    IBPS FILLED CLERK=26314
    TOTAL=46314
    THIS WAS FILLED BY APRIL 2012-NOV 2012
    TOTAL TIME REMAINING=4 MONTH
    AND VACANCY REMAINING=[63200-(20000+26314)]=16886
    IBPS ALSO FILLED PO DEC 2011-OCT 2012=19420
    LET THIS FINANCIAL YEAR 2012-2013 IBPS FILLED 9000 PO
    THEN FINAL VACANCY=16886-9000=7886
     
    SO sbi n public banks to fill 7886 vacancies by march 2013
