What will a career in NABARD be like? How is it different from working in RBI? Are NABARD officers posted in rural areas?
Hi, A comfortable and meaningful career is what you can expect from NABARD. National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) is an apex development bank in India having headquarters based in Mumbai (Maharashtra) and other branches are all over the country. NABARD is the apex institution for credit as far as agriculture and rural development is concerned and also does Consultancies through its wing called NABARD Consultancy Services (NABCONS). You would be dealing with policy issues of various programmes of Central/State Govts and projects relating to Agriculture as well as Rural Development, closely liaising with the State Government and the banking industry, which encompasses the entire activities in the rural areas. Pay (and almost all perks) is equal to RBI which is better than any commercial bank. NABARD has offices in all State Capitals called Regional Offices with its Head Office in Mumbai. NABARD has a Residence-Cum-Office in most of the districts in the South and majority of the districts in the North and you could get posted if you put in around 10 to 15 years service as an officer. The district posting is a single man office!! Regards
