SRINAGAR: All the major banks operating in the state have agreed to start the local recruitment drive after Finance Minister, Dr Haseeb Drabu suggested to them that it will help them in boosting their Credit Deposit ratio and also create employment avenues.
The Minister asked the bankers to explore ways to exploit the local potential during a special session of State Level Bankers Committee. The banks like State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank and Kerala Bank agreed to the suggestion of exclusive local recruitment. Aditya Kohli representing HDFC bank informed the Minister that the bank has 73 branches in the state and almost all employees are local. We have around 900 employees in our banks here and all are local. As we expand we will surely be recruiting more local people, said Kohli.
