State Bank of India to recruit 7,200
State Bank of India, the country’s largest lender, plans to recruit about 7,200 people even as nearly 8,100 members of its staff are due to retire during the current fiscal, as it seeks to increase its dependence on technology for a number of routine tasks. ‘I am trying to get a lot of technology to help my people so that they spend less of their time on activities that don’t really need a lot of thinking and knowledge. For routine stuff such as cash counting we are bringing more and more machines,” said SBI chairman Arundhati Bhattacharya, adding the bank should be able to manage with the number of people it planned to hire during 2014-15.
