Reasons are not very difficult to find. According to IBA, the PSU Banks would need about 400000 staff in the coming two years. How great an opportunity is this for youths and how to cash this raining opportunity is the subject matter of this piece of writing!

Jobs in private Banks

As the economy is advancing, the majority of the private sector Banks are also expanding their business continuously. For this reason their appointment related activities have jumped up manifolds. Normally in private Banks, the appointment procedures and posts are different compared to the PSU Banks. These Banks appoint the MBAS in finance and accounts on higher positions. Preferences on its lower levels are given to those graduates who are post graduate diploma in Banking and finance.

For the appointment in the PSU Banks, a graduate in any stream is eligible but the diploma holders in Banking and are given preference.

Reason of boom of jobs

After the IT sector, Indian Banking Sector is going to appoint employees in huge numbers. There are two reasons of it. The first reason is that there were no new positions filled in after the retirement of the Banks’ employees since a longish time as a result, the Banks were feeling manpower crunch at its each levels. The second reason is that the majority of Banks are expanding vastly, for which a huge staff strength is needed to man the vast networks of Banks.

Measure of job boom

According to experts, after IT, Banking is the sector which would provide jobs in enormous numbers. In this game is included both the public and the private sectors Banks. These appointments are going to be held at every levels of Banks- fresher level, mid level, and senior management levels. Majority of Banks these days are expanding with a faster pace. The Banks have to make fresh appointments in order to keep pace with its expansions sprees.

Estimated vacancies in the Banking jobs

According to one estimate of the Indian Bank Association (IBA), PSU Banks alone need four lacks new staff within the coming two years. Foe example, whereas Bank of Baroda (BoB) is going to appoint 5000 employees in the current financial year, the biggest loan provider Bank of India- the State Bank of India had appointed over 20000 employees on its jobs just the last year rounds. SBI is planning to appoint 10000 more jobs this year too. Union Bank of India too is going to appoint 4000 employees this year. The total strength of the public sector banks employees as of this moment is 10 lacks, but majority of these employees will retire in coming two years compelling Banks to make fresh appointments in enormous numbers.


The IBPS last year had appointed 48000 employees last year. It is expected that the appointments going to be held this year is going much greater in volumes than ever before. The situation compared to before has completely changed. The persons appointed earlier used to retire from the same Banks. There were no job hopping thence! Not now! Now appointees begin job hopping very soon after joining the Banks.

Taking into accounts the position of demand and supply which runs under huge chasms, the PSU Banks are not going only to campuses to appoint employees but are relaxing the hard rules of the services as well. For example in the State Bank of India, the minimum qualification for the post of PO earlier was a graduate with at least 65% marks at the graduation level itself. Now it is opened for all the graduates irrespective of the percentages obtained at the graduation examinations
