Govt raises maximum tenure of PSU banks’ CEOs to 10 years to retain talent

The maximum tenure of CEO and MD of public sector has been increased to 10 years, a move that will help the government retain the best talent in the banking sector.

As per a government notification dated November 17, 2022, the term for the appointment has been extended to 10 years, from the earlier 5 years, subject to superannuation age of 60 years.

Earlier, the MD or executive director of a public sector undertaking (PSU) bank was eligible for a maximum tenure of 5 years or 60 years whichever was earlier. This is also applicable for whole-time directors of all Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs).

“A whole-time director, including the managing director, shall devote his whole time to the affairs of the nationalised bank and shall hold office for such initial term not exceeding five years and extendable up to a total period, including the initial term, not exceeding 10 years, as the may, after consultation with the Reserve Bank, specify and shall be eligible for re-appointment,” it said.

The amendment would be called Nationalised (Management and Miscellaneous Provisions) Amendment Scheme, 2022, it added.

The has the right to terminate the term of office of a whole-time director, including the managing director, any time before the expiry of the term specified, by giving him a notice of not less than three months, in writing or three months’ salary and allowances in lieu of notice.

The decision of the government would help to retain the talent who rise to the ladder of whole-time directors at a very early age of 45-50 years.

Presently, there are many whole-time directors of who entered the board at a young age. The amendment would benefit them.
