Stress is a universal human experience and is inevitable in the modern dynamic day to day life. Stress can root from any place viz.,home or workplace, public or private place. Both pleasant and unpleasant experiences can have stressful components.

It was analyzed for overall employees, highly stressed sample employees and moderately stressed sample employees and results. This study found the major role stressors for overall sample employees, highly stressed and moderately stressed employees of public and private sector banks.

The questionnaire was constructed using the occupational role stress scale (ORSS) developed by Pareek (1983). The data showed high reliability for this particular study.
