Shillong, May 04 (UNI) The State Bank of India (SBI) will need 8,000 officers in the next three years, said Mr Shantha Raju, general secretary of All India State Bank Officers' Federation (AISBOF).
''The SBI will need about 8,000 officers in the next three years.
Hopefully, there will not be a problem in fulfilling the requirement, as the management is taking adequate measures such as campus recruitment at prominent educational institutions,'' he told newsmen here last night. His remarks came ahead of the executive committee meeting of AISBOF here today.
He maintained that the voluntary retirement scheme for the SBI officials has resulted in resignation of a large number of officers.
''About 7,000 officers have already quit under the voluntary retirement scheme. The scheme brought an opportunity to many people who wanted to leave due to growing pressure of technological upgradation and several other reasons,'' said Mr Raju.
However, he rejected that a large number of officers were quitting to join the private sector banks.
''Some may have joined the private sector banks. However, their number is quite negligible and the attrition rate in SBI is not that serious,'' he said.
