SSC Jobs: What can you Apply?

Having known the recruitment dates, the next question in your mind will be – What jobs are available for qualifiers of these exams?


Based on previous year intake, we have compiled a list of posts that are regularly notified through competitive exams of SSC.

  • Lower Division Clerks
  • Grade “C” and Grade ‘D” Stenographers
  • Assistants in the various Ministries/Departments (Govt. of India)
  • Inspectors in Central Excise & Income-Tax
  • Sub-Inspectors in CBI and Central Police Organisations
  • Junior Engineers in CPWD
  • Statistical Investigators
  • Section Officer in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department
  • Divisional Accountants, Auditors and Accountants under the Office of Comptroller and Auditor General of India and other Accounts Departments
  • Tax Assistant (Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) & Central Board of Excise and Customs)

No Interviews: As you can see, the commission mostly announces recruitment exams for Group B, C & D cadre positions in various ministries/ depts. of Indian government.

The Indian PM Shri.Narendara Modi recently announced that selections for group B, C & D will not have any interviews.

So the final appointment for the above mentioned posts will be based on your scores in written examinations only.No interviews would be conducted.


Bank Jobs vs. SSC Jobs:

ssc jobs vs bank jobs,bank jobs or govt jobs,ssc jobs vs bank jobs,should i choose bank jobs over ssc jobs This is one of the biggest question that we encounter whenever any SSC notification is published.


Infact, there is nothing called SSC jobs since SSC is just an organization like IBPS that fills vacancies in govt. departments through respective selection process.


Incase if you wish to compare, it should be taken only as bank jobs VS govt jobs filled through SSC.


But since 60,000 bank jobs were created last year in public sector banks across India, the comparison is unavoidable.


Are salaries in bank jobs & govt jobs same? – is one another doubt that seems to haunt many youngsters searching for opportunities in govt sector.


To answer it, here is a quick comparison - so everyone can understand & benefit:

  • Bank employees don’t come under the government payroll directly, although banks are owned by Govt. of India.
  • Salary hikes/ wage revisions are announced by the government after a pay commission.They are meant only for those directly employed by them & NOT for those in public banks.

The salaries for bank employees are negotiated between the management, employee unions & government officials once every 3 years.Bankers salary may increase in 2017, as talks are set to begin soon.

  • This is the reason for regular strikes by bank employees.
  • Employees in a bank have to deal with customers daily while its not a necessity in other govt jobs (except few depts.)

Finally, bank jobs cannot be compared with those filled through SSC as their profiles, & responsibilities are completely different.


We feel this article would have given you an overview about the upcoming SSC exams in 2017 & what type of govt jobs are to be filled, while also answering some of your long standing doubts.

Not Repaid Loan? You Are Not Eligible for SBI PO Recruitment 2017

Every year, the SBI recruitment is one of the biggest competitive exam that is held to fill Probationary Officer & Clerks. But the eligibility for SBI jobs are quite different in many ways including some new rules being introduced for applicants.One of it is related to loans & credit card dues wherein candidates who had defaulted in repayment are ineligible to apply for clerical or PO recruitment in SBI.


State Bank of India being the largest public sector bank in India is also one of the biggest employment generator in banking sector.It is the reason why every bank job aspirant in India looks forward for jobs to be announced by SBI.


While the recently released SBI PO recruitment 2017 notification has increased the hopes of candidates, they are also concerned about some conditions.


SBI Clerk & PO Recruitment: 2 New Rules to Note

There are certain eligibility conditions for candidates to fulfil if they wish to apply for SBI PO or SBI junior associate posts.


In addition to the normal criteria, there are two new rules which many would have seen in the online application form:




1) Repayment of Loans: State Bank of India, a popular public sector bank is asking about the candidate`s credit history for recruitment.In their official notification, SBI says,

“Candidates with record of default in repayment of loans/credit card dues and/or against whose name, adverse report of CIBIL or other external agencies are available are not eligible for appointment.”

It simply means - If you had taken education loan/ home loan/ vehicle loan/ personal loan/ credit card loan & are not repaying it regularly or defaulted (missed) repayment – you are not eligible to apply for these PO posts.


Even if you had availed loans from any other bank & not repaying it regularly, SBI will still not allow you to join their bank.


How loan repayment affects you?

CIBIL (Credit Information Bureau) is the company that keeps track of every individual`s repayment record of loans.This information is provided to them by banks & other financial institutions every month.


With this info, CIBIL creates a credit report & provides scores (also called CIBIL score)for every person who availed a loan.

  • If you are paying the EMI/ dues promptly without any delay, your score would increase, placing you in safe zone.
  • Incase you are defaulting in repaying the loan regularly or has not repaid the loan/ credit card dues fully for a long time, your CIBIL score is lowered.

A low credit score means bad credit history.


No bank will offer you any loans the next time & even if they do sanction, it would be at a much higher rate of interest.




How SBI is going to use CIBIL score?

State Bank of India has not detailed the exact manner on how they intend to use credit score data in recruitment.But they look very serious to not allow loan defaulters to become their employees.


The possibility is, SBI may verify the CIBIL scores of selected candidates before appointment as part of their background verification process, just like private banks


2) Complaint Against Your Character: This is another criteria that we are seeing in SBI recruitment for the first time.Here is the exact condition from their advt:

“Candidates against whom there is/are adverse report regarding character & antecedents, moral turpitude are not eligible to apply for the post.

It means – Those who are having bad conduct character report in their name are not eligible to apply for these jobs.


Any pending police case or enquiry filed on account of bad behavior would also come under this category.With increasing number of frauds reported in banks, SBI doesnt want to take any chances & prefers to hire people with clean records only.


Political Parties & Unions Against this Rule

Political leaders & bank unions had already slammed SBI over this rule ever since the notification was published, terming the condition as ‘unconstitutional’.


C.H. Venkatachalam, general secretary of All India Bank Employees' Association (AIBEA) told IANS,

"A fresh graduate cannot repay his education loan if he does not get a job. If organisations like SBI bar such candidates even from applying, then how can they repay their loans? The condition is obnoxious & unfair and should be changed”.

Regional parties in the state of Tamil nadu took up this issue during the recent elections & condemned the bank for framing such rules.


S. Sudhakar, general secretary of the Communist Party of India (CPI) wrote a letter to the union finance minister Arun Jaitley urging him to intervene & scrap the condition of SBI that prevented education loan defaulters from applying for clerical recruitment.


But the Union government & State Bank of India have remained silent till now.


Although there was opposition from public over this condition since last year, the SBI PO recruitment 2017 notification also restricts loan defaulters from applying!


Many candidates had taken educational loans but couldnt repay it on time due to unavailability of jobs.With this new rule, young unemployed graduates are going to find it tough to appear for SBI jobs & recruitments as well.


Will other banks also implement such a restriction or not will be known after the IBPS bank exams are announced.
