GENESIS OF THE COLLEGE

As advised by RBI, a conference of Chairmen of 20 small banks having their registered offices in the states of Tamilnadu, Kerala and Karnataka (erstwhile Mysore) was held at Madurai in May 1971 under the Chairmanship of Dr R K Hazari, Deputy Governor, Reserve Bank of India. The proposal for starting a joint staff training college for the benefit of small banks in the above three states was considered.

A steering group with members from RBI and few south based banks was constituted. Sri. M T Krishnan Nair, then Chairman of South Indian Bank Limited was a member of the committee. Based on the recommendations of this committee, Southern India Banks Staff Training College (SIBSTC) was started at Coimbatore on 25.10.1972.

The College was inaugurated on 25th October 1972 by Dr R K Hazari, Deputy Governor, Reserve Bank of India in the presence of Sri. Sunder Ram Shetty, Chairman, Vijaya Bank, other Chairmen member banks and dignitaries from Bankers Training College (BTC) Mumbai and National Institute of Bank Management (NIBM) Pune.

SIBSTC was constituted as Society and Registered on 08.02.1972 by Registrar of Assurances, Coimbatore, vide Sl. No 7 of 1972. The College was originally situated at Coimbatore, above Bank of Baroda Branch Building.

With a view to enlarge the activities and to harness the expertise available with other institutions, the college was shifted to Bangalore in July 1989 at Ulsoor. The college started operating from premises at Ulsoor, Bangalore from August 1989 to June 2007.

From June 2007 till November 2013, the college operated at Jayanagar Premises in Bangalore.

With a view to provide better facilities to the participants and also to enhance the training reach, the college, in November 2013 shifted to new premises on Shankara Math Road, Shankarapuram, Bangalore and is presently operating in this premises.

Exceptional performance of the College in the years 2015 and onwards created a huge demand for the Trainings in the College and therefore a need had arisen to acquire one more property with Hostel facilities nearby the existing premises. Accordingly, with the permission of the Governing Board, College acquired SBI Staff Training College (erstwhile SBM STC) in August 2018.

Presently, the College is operating in 2 premises, one in Main and the other one in Annex
