IBPS To conduct common examination for the posts of gramin bank or RRB'S
IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) has become a buzzword among the candidates seeking jobs in Public sector banks in India. In 2010, government of India decided to conduct a common written exam for recruitment in Banks and gave this responsibility to IBPS. Now, IBPS has been given another task of conducting Common Written Exam for Recruitment in RRBs (Region Rural Banks, also called Gramin Banks).
RRBs were set up in the country to ensure sufficient institutional credit for agriculture and other rural sectors. While there were 196 RRBs in country in early 2000s, now there are 82 left. Many Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) were joined together to give them more strong financial background.
According to All-India RRB Employees Association, there will be good amount of recruitment in RRBs in coming years. Currently, IBPS conducts separate written exams for various RRBS whenever they need to recruit, this used to be a lot of rework and headache for IBPS. But now, there will be a common written exam for posts in all RRBs.
To revise, process will be same for recruitment in RRBs as that for PO and Clerks posts. Candidates will get scorecards after passing the written exam that will enable them to attend various RRBs Interviews if they meet the cut off set by the bank.
Note that unlike PSU banks , RRBs belong to a particular region within a state that will naturally become their eligibility criteria. It means candidates belonging to a particular state and knowing the local language will be applicable for the job Interviews in RRBs.
