The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has approved the appointment of Sriram as Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of IDBI Bank for a temporary period of three months with effect from Jain's demitting office, the order issued by the Personnel Ministry said.
Sriram has been working as the MD (Corporate and Global Banking) in SBI since July 2014. He had been Managing Director of State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur. Sriram joined the government-run bank in 1981 as a Probationary Officer.
During over three-decade-long career, he held several positions and also had a stint at SBI's Singapore office. His appointment signals the government's efforts to ensure that the bank does not remain headless after Jain's appointment in the central bank.
