What is SBI CBO Recruitment 2021-22?

Circle Based Officer, CBO in SBI is equivalent to Assistant Manager post, however, SBI CBO is not equivalent to the Probationary Officer post. State Bank of India has recently come up with the new Circle Officer post to address the issue of all India-based officers which is leading to a lot of HR-related issues.

The Probationary Officer appointments across the country are subject to frequent transfers as well as out-of-parent circle postings which results in severe HR issues like imbalance and attrition. Thus, to resolve this issue, SBI has come up with this innovative solution to create a circle-based officer post bound by the circle and will be posted in the same circle for a minimum of 10 years or 15-20 years at max.
