Age relaxation should be given to P.H. People only....because they really need it. Any other relaxation should be given on family annual income....there are many people in general category who are financially suffering so relaxation should be given on pour family income...it is worthless to give who really don't need....our government should think pratically not politically.....so sad to say this please notice this message...its not only a message but feelings of financially week person...thankyou

Upkar Singh said...

Fair chance should be given 2 more who prepared for it & may hav better skills or specialization but not 60% marks (minimum criteria). It should b reduced to 55% timely so that guy wont to face other problem of minimum age criteria. Also consider d comments of SHIRISH PATEL mentioned above

Lokesh said...

Criteria of 60 % in graduation should be abolished Because banks r not recruiting on graduation %age . Whatever may b the % of a candidate in graduation say 60 to 99 % . He/ she ll have to Score in IBPS CWE .

Welcome Decision by Ibps! Ibps should give only 3 attempts. This will reduce coaching classes.

not a good decision, why they have reduced the age criteria, it should be 30 for GM, i don't understand this country, it speaks about Right to Equality, my question is where is the equality just on the paper of constitution, or some where else,,,, the age and percentage condition should be same for everyone,
