Government clears creation of new ED slot in public sector banks

KOLKATA: Large state-run lenders like Bank of Baroda and Punjab National Bank will get a third executive director (ED) on their board from next April, while smaller banks like Dena or United Bank will get their second ED.

The government has just cleared the Khandelwal Committee's recommendation to this end, two chief executives at state-run banks said. Banks with more than Rs 3 lakh crore business are considered as large entities.

The government has created the new slot in six large banks and said the third executive directors will be responsible for human resource development and technology.

Bank of India, Canara Bank, Central Bank of India and Union Bank of India are dubbed as large banks and will benefit from this move. This is in step with the director-HR position that exists in public sector undertakings like ONGC, Indian Oil, HPCL or BPCL.

"Creation of the ED position for HRD is an important step in the banking industry as this will help in bringing human resource development under board's direct attention," said AK Khandelwal, who headed the HR reform panel and submitted a series of recommendations in June 2010.

The government has also created a second executive director's position in five small banks having a business of less than Rs 1.5 lakh crore. Bank of Maharashtra, Dena Bank, Punjab & Sind Bank, United Bank of India and Vijaya Bank fall in this category and their second ED will also be responsible for HRD and technology. All these banks have one ED at their top deck at present.
