The bank has set up the CoE keeping in mind it employs 2,800 people with disability — about 1.4 per cent of its overall employee strength — and also to be of service to other public sector enterprises and banks. The CoE has been set up by the SBI Foundation.

Explaining the rationale for setting up the CoE in Bengaluru, SBI Chairman Arundhati Bhattacharya said, “At this point, this will be the only centre… Bengaluru has a lot of experts who can give us the right kind of inputs to get this centre moving in the right way and, thereafter, we will see how it goes.”

The centre initially will be ‘training the trainer’ and it is expected to create the training modules or programmes.
