Today I am going to tell you about the SBI Clerk salary structure, allowances, perks, pay scale and CTC after the wage revision. Almost every year State Bank of India announces thousands of vacancies in clerical cadre. SBI clerk is one of the good career options if you are looking for Bank Jobs.
State Bank of India being the largest Bank of the country pays a decent salary to its Clerk. Before telling you about the SBI Clerk Salary there are a few important points which I want to tell all of you. The initial salary of a SBI Clerk may not appear very attractive but over a period there are substantial rise in the salary. Apart from the salary there are attractive perks as well as facilities available for a SBI Clerk. Aspect of job security and regulated working hours is another attractive feature of the job which cannot be ignored. Further, there are very few transfers in SBI clerical cadre hence there is an element of stability. In case of officers there are frequent transfers and the life of an officer in banks is very disturbed because of frequent transfers.
So when you are looking for a career of clerk in SBI you should take a holistic view. Salary should not be the only criteria for this job. You must also consider the aspects which I discussed in the second para of the article.
