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,

  1. All vacancies are in common pool
  2. No announcement has been issued till now by banks for registrants to alter their choices
  3. 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.
