“In the posting that they go to (officers), if they are unable to speak the language, then it’s not an all India service at all. And, they are only causing greater discord, as they are interacting at the branch level with the customers,” the FM said. If there are people getting recruited from a particular state, whatever number that may be, they should, as much as possible be deployed in that state, the minister said.
“If you have a surplus from that state, yes, please move them to any other point.”
According to the Common Foundation Training programme, after completion of one-year of training, officers will not be given independent charges. Furthermore, after 15-20 years of services, the senior officers will undergo a four-week training so that saturation does not set in.
The minister also suggested to the Indian Banks’ Association to roll out a similar training exercise for their clerical staff.
