Off late it has been noticed that a lot of job opportunities are created by the private sector banks and hence many people have opted for them.

Subbarao has done well to highlight a serious anomaly in the banking sector. His plea for bridging the wide differences in the quantum of executive compensation packages payable by public and private sector banks deserves a comprehensive debate that ought to go well beyond the obvious.

STATE OF PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS<br />Experiencing a shortage of talent in high-end areas like risk management and treasury operations.<br />Salaries offered by the public sector banks are lesser than that of the private sector banks, hikes in the salary can be quite less. <br />Opportunities for growth in the career depends on the basis of seniority level, cannot expect a promotion if one does not have the right seniority level. <br />September 26, 2010: Reserve Bank of India Governor D. Subbarao “That the emoluments of State Bank of India Chairman are just a fraction of that earned by heads of largest private banks .”<br />The finance ministry has set up a committee to suggest a formula for revision in compensation of employees of public sector bank after the central bank has raised concern that low salaries could lead to attrition<br />
REASONS FOR THIS STATE<br />The range between the emoluments of those at the bottom of the hierarchy and CEOs cannot be large. Irrespective of their performance, all public sector bank chiefs and EDs get the same amount as bonus. <br />Second, the top executives' pay scales are conditioned by what the government pays its own employees. <br />The current salary structure is not attractive enough to stem attrition.<br />Private banks, including foreign banks, have no such restriction.<br />
CORRECTIVE MEASURES TAKEN <br />Government planning to announce a performance-linked incentive which will be over and above what bank employees get at present.<br />Banks will be able to earmark over 1% of their net profit for payment of incentives. At present, public sector banks can pay up to 1% of their net profit as incentive to employees.<br />The government is also going to increase the ceiling on welfare schemes.<br />There are Certain targets such as loan and deposit growth and target for non-performing assets. If the targets are met, then the incentive will be paid. <br />
performance-linked incentive<br />Any department, to qualify for financial incentives, will have to get a performance rating of 70 per cent or more on its Results-Framework Document (RFD)<br />Employees of 62 central government departments could start earning a performance-based incentive<br />It offers a secretary-level officer an incentive up to 40% of the basic salary, provided his department has met 100% RFD targets.<br /> <br /> A scorecard of 70% and less in meeting RFD targets would however attract zero incentive. However, no penalty will be imposed on the non-performing officers. <br />Formula to calculate the incentive for a secretary as well as the officials lower down. For a secretary-level officer, the incentive is proposed to be 15% of cost savings (budgeted expenditure - actual expenditure) by the department multiplied by its composite score less 70, divided by 30. <br />
