In view of such a huge reduction in the number of employees in banks, Nirmala Sitharaman directed the heads of public sector banks to fill up the vacant posts at the earliest. The officials argued that the recruitment process in banks had been disrupted due to the Corona epidemic. Banks could not be admitted due to corona pandemic. Bank heads said that the recruitment to these posts will be completed with time. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman directed the public sector banks to complete the process of recruitment to the backlog posts reserved for scheduled castes in a time bound manner.
