IBPS Is Entrusted Now To Conduct Common Written Examination (CWE) For Regional Rural Banks (RRBs)
Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS), as we are aware, is the apex authoritative agency engaged in employee selection, training and skill development along with undertaking research for human resource procurement and development. Earlier IBPS was entrusted for recruitment of Probationary Officers (PO), Management Trainees (MT), Specialist Officers (SO) as well as Clerical cadre in all nationalized banks and their partner institutions.
On the onset of ongoing reforms, IBPS has accepted to conduct Common Written Examination (CWE) for recruitment of Clerks, PO and Officers for various Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) operating in India from 2012. As the controlling authority for RRBs, NABARD (National Bank for Agricultural and Rural Development) will supervise the whole selection procedure. At present there are 82 RRBs operating in India and IBPS will extend its recruitment examination service to all these banks at central level. All aspirants and eligible candidates may apply online through IBPS to fill up the online application form for PO, Specialist Officers, MT and Clerks. The RRB selection process and the comprehensive syllabus are expected to reach to the candidates in a near future.
All aspirants interested for a job in RRBs need to take up IBPS examination from now onwards. IBPS examination 2012 will be crucial and mandatory for all cadres of employment in RRBs in India. IBPS was conducting recruitment examination for all the 21 Public Sector Banks except State Bank of India (SBI) and its associate Banks. (For SBI and its associate banks recruitment you can appear in their specially conducted selection examination)
With this new responsibility now IBPS has come up with new responsibility mandated from all the public sector banks (except SBI), RRBs and many other private banking institutions. This initiative will help in centralization of selection procedure as well as maintaining a unique standard for selection of Officers as well as Clerical cadres in India.
