    41000 Bank Jobs Created in 2016 | Post-Wise Vacancies List Here

    number of bank jobs in 2016,bank exams 2016,how many bank jobs in 2016,how many bank jobs were filled in 2016,number of bank job vacancies in 2016The selection process for 41000 govt bank jobs concluded recently with IBPS completing allotments for successful candidates.For the past couple of years, Indian banking sector emerged as one of the leading job creators compared to other sectors.This has led many fresh graduates to appear for banking exams regularly.The answer on how many bank vacancies were created last year here.


    To compensate for the large no. of retirements happening in middle/ senior cadre, public sector banks are recruiting aggressively.


    This trend continued in the year 2015-16 as well with approximately 40,000 vacancies being created across various positions in govt owned banks.


    First, How do these Banks Recruit?

    A common selection process for jobs in 20 government banks is held by IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection).They are responsible for conducting common written exams & interview for different positions.

    Candidates who qualify finally with the necessary cutoffs are allotted to banks based on their scores.

    In this method, merit places an important role.


    A top scoring person gets a job in the bank he/ she chose as their 1st preference.The least scoring candidate in merit list is allotted as per their 5th or 6th or even last preference.


    Bank Recruitments 2015 -16

    Every year, the IBPS bank exams are held during the second part of that calendar year.So the following data are for recruitment exams conducted in the year 2015-16.


    3 major banking exams were held in 2015.They are for the following entry level posts:

    • Clerk
    • Probationary Officer  (PO)
    • Specialist Officer (SO)

    IBPS V means, the 5th year of this exam, that were conducted on different dates in 2015-16.

    how many bank jobs in 2015-16,IBPS bank vacancies in 2016


    As you can see, a total of 41,597 bank jobs were created by govt. banks.


    These openings will be filled in the current year of 2016 with qualified candidates of IBPS bank exams held in 2015-16.


    Bank Jobs: Competition is Growing

    Although vacancies are only in few thousands the response for these exams were much higher.Here are some statistics:

    • 12 – 14 lakh candidates register for IBPS PO & Clerk common exams every year
    • 9 - 10 lakh of them appear for the test

    State Bank of India does not participate in this common recruitment procedure.They issue separate recruitment notifications & select candidates based on that scores.


    So whenever an SBI recruitment notification is released, atleast 20 lakh candidates apply due to the huge brand value of SBI.There will be no SBI associate banks recruitment hereafter as they will soon merge with SBI.


    Such figures only showcase the growing interest for government jobs (such as banks, SSC, PSC etc) among Indian youth.


    Are there bank exams in 2016?

    Yes.If you are waiting to start your career in indian banks or is looking to quit your present job, planning early is necessary.


    The IBPS bank exams in 2016 for PO, clerks & specialist officers shall happen only after October.


    How many Bank Jobs in 2017?

    bank jobs in 2016-2017Since IBPS is to conduct the exams during the later part of 2016, vacancies shall be filled in the year 2017 only.


    This brings us to the next question: How many bank jobs to be filled 2017?


    The number of bank jobs in 2017 is expected to be similar like last year – which is around 11 -13,000 officers & 22 – 25,000 clerks.


    Apart from these govt. banks, many other private banks such as ICICI Bank, Federal Bank, Axis Bank etc., also conduct recruitments.but they dont require these IBPS exam scores.(see apply for bank jobs without IBPS scores)

    Not every year we see Indian railways recruiting in large numbers.That is the reason why over 90 lakh young graduates applied for the Railways RRB NTPC recruitment (CEN 03/ 2015).


    A total of 18272 vacancies were on offer that included posts like Assistant station master, Reservation clerk, Commercial apprentice, Goods guard etc.,


    As part of the selection process, online written exams were held in 1120+ centres across the nation between March, April & May 2016.The overall RRB NTPC exam review was moderate.


    It was the worlds largest online exam with candidates appearing in 74 shifts!


    Release of Results Will Take Time, says RRB

    For the past few days, many websites were spreading false news & rumours regarding the RRB NTPC exam results.


    Some even went to the extent of fixing their own dates for results, which turned out as completely bogus mainly targetted to bring desperate candidates to their websites.


    To control such false information being circulated on the internet, Allahabad railway recruitment board (RRB) has published a notice on their website about the position of pending results.


    In it, they say,


    “For NTPC posts (Graduate), examination conducted in March-April’2016, against
    CEN-03/2015, processing of results is still under confidential process. No information on this examination can be shared with the candidates at present. Candidates will be suitably informed by the administration at the appropriate time.”


    The next update on result position shall be given after 15 days, they further say.




    The official notification published on their site here should clear most of your confusion on RRB NTPC results.


    What It Means

    After reading the above statement, if you are still confused – here is a much simpler version for everyone to understand.

    • RRBs are still processing/ evaluating your results.
    • Since this being a confidential process, no information can be shared about the current status or future course of action.

    So candidates who are sending RTI enquiries also wont get any clear reply about the results.


    Untill a next update is posted on their website, we request you to be patient & not give too much importance to the false news spready around.
