The time has arrived for numerous candidates to realize their dream of working in a public sector bank.With the registration starting for choosing bank preferences, aspirants are just one step away from appointment as probationary officers.Bank job recruitments have moved on fast lane currently compared to previous years mainly due to the new selection process.
Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) responsible for conducting common written examinations for vacancies in government owned banks held the CWE II in June 2012
As a first - common interviews were arranged for exam qualifiers & those successful in these processes were eligible for final selection.
Choose Your Bank!
Few weeks ago IBPS had published the complete list of 22400 PO vacancies available across banks.See below for category wise openings:
- General/ UR – 11058
- OBC – 6062
- SC – 3409
- ST - 1886
Candidates will now have to mark their order of preference for all the participating organizations from February 20 to 28, 2013 at their website here

Gone are the days when individuals had to apply for each bank & wait for long time to know their results.Common selection procedure has been implemented which not only reduces workload but also completes the recruitment in record time.
For example, see what happens after you register your choice
- The order of preference is registered in system against your roll number
- Your final combined score (CWE + interview), preference given & no. of vacancies in that bank are taken into consideration
- A computer system then completes the allotment as per merit
Candidates shall be intimated about their appointment via email/sms along with details of reporting & joining.
When will I have to join?
Since allotments are done automatically by systems, the final results should be out by 2nd week of March itself.
Though joining formalities vary with each organization it could most probably start within few weeks of sending appointment orders.
Only when their requirement is not urgent it could take little longer for you to get inducted.Unlike IT companies, selected people wont have to wait for years to join.
Do I have to posses any more eligibility conditions?
From the looks banks may not release new or additional criteria at this stage for the below reasons,
- All vacancies are in common pool
- No announcement has been issued till now by banks for registrants to alter their choices
- Govt.`s order to follow uniform procedure
Having said these, since HR policy matters are governed by banks they have the right to bring changes at any stage.So more clarity on this front can be expected in the next few days.
