PSBs are much ahead of Private Sector Banks in expanding overseas presence, accounting for over 90% of 171 overseas branches as of FY13.

Banking credit is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17 per cent during 2012-13 to 2016-17. The banking and NBFCs are expected to generate around 1.5 million new jobs between 2013?14 and 2016?17 on account of business expansion, retirement primarily in PSBs and entry of new banks in the private sector.

The sector currently employs over 2.55 million employees and is slated to employ more than 4.2 million employees by 2022. This implies additional creation of 1.6 million jobs in the nine-year period.
