The Na­tional In­sti­tute of Bank Man­age­ment (NIBM), which came into be­ing in 1969 at the time of the na­tion­al­iza­tion of banks, to­day caters to the man­power needs of the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor banks as well as other fi­nan­cial ser­vices in­sti­tu­tions, in­clud­ing co­op­er­a­tive banks, NBFCs and pres­tige or­ga­ni­za­tions like NPCI and CI­BIL. The in­sti­tute was formed with the sup­port of the gov­ern­ment of In­dia, Re­serve Bank of In­dia and State Bank of In­dia and was func­tional from Mumbai, but its cam­pus was shifted to Pune in 1985. As of now, most of the se­nior officers of the pub­lic sec­tor banks, in­clud­ing MDs, have ei­ther been trained or have been as­so­ci­ated with NIBM.

Says Dr K.K. Din­gra, di­rec­tor of NIBM: “Dur­ing the cur­rent fi­nan­cial year from April 2017 to Oc­to­ber 2017, we have con­ducted 101 train­ing pro­grams, of which 46 have been for in­di­vid­ual banks (in-com­pany pro­grams) and 2627 par­tic­i­pants have ben­e­fited, of which 1465 are from in-com­pany pro­grams.”

Re­cently, the in­sti­tute or­ga­nized a work­shop on In­sol­vency and Bank­ruptcy Code 2016, which at­tracted a large num­ber of par­tic­i­pants. For­mer fi­nance sec­re­tary Ashok Lavasa had ad­dressed the par­tic­i­pants.


The in­sti­tute of­fers cus­tom­ized train­ing pro­grams for bank­ing profges­sion­als from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal. It has col­lab­o­ra­tive train­ing pro­grams with Kel­logg School of Man­age­ment (USA), Frankfurt School of Fi­nance and Man­age­ment (Germany) and Asian In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment – School of Ex­ec­u­tive Education (the Philip­pines). Dhin­gra says the in­ter­na­tional train­ing pro­grams the in­sti­tute is con­duct­ing cover a va­ri­ety of top­ics such as as­set-li­a­bil­ity man­age­ment, fi­nan­cial man­age­ment with the fo­cus on risk man­age­ment and Basel ac­cords – II & III, cor­po­rate gov­er­nance, etc. “Dur­ing 2016-17, we con­ducted 5 in­ter­na­tional pro­grams such as In­dian Tech­ni­cal and Eco­nomic Co­op­er­a­tion Pro­gramme (ITEC), Special Com­mon­wealth African As­sis­tance Pro­gramme (SCAAP) and Colombo Plan (CP), wherein 161 par­tic­i­pants at­tended var­i­ous cour­ses. Of the to­tal 5954 par­tic­i­pants, there were around 873 par­tic­i­pants from smaller economies like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Mal­dives, Afghanistan and some of the African coun­tries too” he elab­o­rates.

For the pro­gram cal­en­dar 2018-19, the in­sti­tute pro­poses to hold pro­grams on is­sues con­fronting the bank­ing in­dus­try, par­tic­u­larly in the area of in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy like as cy­ber frauds, data an­a­lyt­ics, IT gov­er­nance be­sides lead­er­ship de­vel­op­ment pro­grams.


In 2003, the in­sti­tute in­tro­duced a 1-year Post-Grad­u­ate Pro­gram in Bank­ing and Fi­nance. “It is heart­en­ing to men­tion that this pro­gram has, right from its in­cep­tion, been able to achieve 100% place­ment of its stu­dents. Cur­rently, we are run­ning 2 batches of PGDM con­cur­rently,” says Dhin­gra.

The in­sti­tute is iden­ti­fied by IBA to con­duct e-cer­tifi­cate cour­ses, as man­dated by the RBI. In It started of­fer­ing these cour­ses in Septem­ber 2017on top­ics such as credit man­age­ment, risk man­age­ment, trea­sury man­age­ment and ac­counts and au­dit. The course was for­mally in­au­gu­rated by Dr Vi­ral Acharya, deputy gover­nor, RBI.


The in­sti­tute brings out a va­ri­ety of pub­li­ca­tions in the form of books, jour­nals, re­ports, mimeo­graphs and work­ing papers in tan­dem with its re­search and train­ing func­tions. It has 2 quar­terly jour­nals – Pra­j­nan and Vin­i­maya. Dhin­gra says dur­ing 2016-17, the in­sti­tute’s fac­ulty was able to pub­lish 13 re­search papers in the Aus­tralian Busi­ness Deans Coun­cil (ABDC) ac­cred­ited jour­nals un­der B & C cat­e­gory and 7 ar­ti­cles in other jour­nals.


The in­sti­tute has un­der­taken re­search projects for var­i­ous gov­ern­ment in­sti­tu­tions and mul­ti­lat­eral agen­cies It has con­ducted re­search in as di­verse ar­eas as com­pe­tency as­sess­ment val­i­da­tion of ICAAP, credit guar­an­tee scheme for education loan, cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion sur­vey, al­ter­nate chan­nels and pay­ment prod­ucts, or­ga­ni­za­tional re­struc­tur­ing, and train­ing need anal­y­sis. Re­search projects are also un­der­taken on top­ics such as im­pact of im­ple­men­ta­tion of Ind-AS on credit rat­ings of bor­row­ers; branch risk profile; for­mats for con­duct of risk as­sess­ment un­der RBIA; op­er­a­tional risk cap­i­tal es­ti­ma­tion un­der BIA and TSA; credit man­age­ment; cus­tomer seg­men­ta­tion anal­y­sis; and fi­nan­cial aware­ness among gen-next. “Re­cently, we have com­pleted re­search projects on ‘im­prov­ing ef­fi­ciency of re­tail pay­ment sys­tems in In­dia’, ‘com­pe­tency map­ping’ for some pub­lic sec­tor banks,” says Dhin­gra.
