New Delhi: The government is preparing for the privatization of two public sector banks. Sources say that before privatization these banks may bring attractive voluntary retirement scheme (VRS) for their employees. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, while presenting the budget for 2021-22, proposed privatization of two public sector banks and a general insurance company. Sources say that the acquisition of these banks by the private sector through attractive VRS projects will be of immense benefit.
Sources say the purpose of VRS is not to forcibly evict employees, but to benefit employees who already want to retire. They will be able to get attractive financial package for this. The task of identifying banks for privatization was entrusted to the Niti Aayog. The commission submitted the names to a high-level committee headed by Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gowda.
