Banks which are headquartered in the southern part of the country have more presence of women workforce as compared to banks based in other regions in India. This fact is revealed by the annual reports of public sector banks.

Presence of women workforce in banks in the southern and northern regions, present a picture with sharp contrasts. Like the presence of female employees in south based State Bank of Tranvancore (SBT) and north based State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur (SBBJ). Last fiscal, SBT had 37.77 percent of women employees whereas SBBJ had just 10.21 percent women employees working for it. It should be noted that both theses banks are associate banks of State Bank of India.

Talking about this trend, Ms. Usha Ananthasubramanian, the Executive Director of Punjab National Bank said that south India has always encouraged women's education. This could have resulted in more women seeking employment in banks as compared to women in northern regions of the country.

Giving another reason for this trend, the General Manager of Karnataka Bank, Ms. Meera Arhanha said that many banks have originated in the south and that almost every household there has a member working in the banks. She further said that north provides more business opportunities and added that south is service oriented as compared to north which is business oriented.
