Content: In an attempt to further our understanding about job crafting behaviors in an Indian scenario, an extension of the phenomenon comprehension study was carried out. The phenomenon comprehension study explored the instances of job crafting behaviors in a limited sample of rural banking employees. Due to an inadvertent, unavoidable, overemphasis on rural banking employees and in the wake of equating the balance, more instances of job crafting were explored in co-operative and other banks in a metropolitan area. This extension study was conducted by taking into consideration more banking sector employees from banking employees working in an urban area (Mumbai metropolitan area) and comparing their job crafting attitudes with the rural ones. For this study, standardized scales endorsing two different approaches to measure job crafting behaviors (viz. Slemp & Vella-Brodrick, 2013; Tims, Bakker & Derks, 2012) is being administered and is being coupled with a focussed group discussion with a limited number of employees. Since, it is also a work in progress, we speculate that there will be certain subtle differences in the attitudes, satisfaction and levels of engagement of urban banking employees. These conjoint studies will help us understand the differences and variations in the manifestation of job crafting behaviors and pave way to execute plans for further research.
