State Bank of Indiat will recruit about 10,500 employees during the current financial year to manage the growing business of the bank.
“This year, the bank would make 9,500 clerical level appointments and nearly 1,000 probationary officers to be inducted,”  SBI Chairman  Pratip Chaudhuri  stated.
The process would be completed by Dussehra, he added. According to the annual report of SBI, overall staff strength declined by 7,452 employees during the last fiscal.
As on March 31, 2012, the bank had a total permanent staff strength of 2,15,481, which included 80,404 officers, 95,715 clerical staff and the remaining 39,362 were sub-staff.

As stated in my blog earlier, a situation has arisen in all PSUs the need for new recruitment. Instead of engaging contract workers, new recruitment should be done. The unions have to pressure strongly for the same.
