Bharatiya Mahila Bank, the first nationalised bank for women expected to be operational from November, intends to recruit 115 officers initially.

The bank has invited applications through the online mode from female candidates for 115 posts. Candidates can apply online till September 30.

The female applicants must be graduates in any faculty from any reputed and recognised university with good knowledge of the basics of computers, says an advertisement by the bank.

Bharatiya Mahila Bank proposes to complete the first six branches at Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Indore and Guwahati by October 15.

The Government has already approved Rs 1,000-crore seed capital for the women focused public sector bank, announced by Finance Minister P. Chidambaram in his Budget speech.

The Government is also on the look out for locations to set up the branches, including at Kolkata, Guwahati, Chennai, Bangalore, Jaipur, Lucknow, Mysore and Indore.

The proposed bank, to be headquartered at Delhi, is likely to be operational by November this year.

Reserve Bank of India gave its in-principal approval for the Bharatiya Mahila Bank in June and the banking company is being set up.

One of the key objectives of the bank is focus on the banking needs of women and promote economic empowerment.
