/data/obderechange is a directory.
permissions should be handled as per the policies of the sys admin (usually via SELinux ).

Which distro is on ftp server?

If it's Unix, then simply add user bsnlobd to main group of /data/obderechange directory.
~$ ls -ld /data/obderechange
drwx.... owner group .... /data/obderechange
~$ usermod -G <group> bsnlobd

Check this how to chroot or jail users,
If you are running vsftpd then open /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file and umcomment/add the below entry
Then reload/restart vsftpd service. Thats it.
Check this if you wanted to change existing user's home directory?.
