The appointment of managing directors to state-run banks might be delayed by two months as search committees were yet to be formed, said an official at Bank Division.
The banks yesterday sent letters to the Division seeking its representatives for three-member committees, said official sources.
As per the government decision, five state-owned banks will form three-member committees to search for “non-political” MDs. Each of five committees will have a representative from Bank Division.
In a circular, the Bank Division asked the state-owned banks this month to formulate three-member search committees.
As per the circular, the committee will select three candidates for MD post and send the selections to the Bank Division. The division will pick one from them for appointment.
The bank will seek consent from Bangladesh Bank for the final selection before appointing.
