Banks are one of the biggest recruiting agencies in the country as it hires for its posts from almost all the streams. But the Recruitment and selection process is a hectic task for Banks as well as for the Candidates.

But don’t worry Public sector banks are planning common interview for jobs to make the selection process much easier.
IBPS discussed with the Indian finance minister that aspirants those who will clear out the IBPS common written exam (CWE) need to appear for only one interview to land for a bank job in India. A final merit list will be declared and aspirants can choose any bank as per merit.

According to an article published in a leading newspaper dated September 27,2012, the new system of common interview may be introduced as early as this year itself and candidates who took the common written exam on June 17 may be the first to attend the common interview. Over 7.5 lakh candidates took the exam for probationary officers and the result is expected in the first week of October.

Also, IBPS is planning to waive the fee for appearing in the common interview. At present, candidates need to shell out Rs 150-250 per interview, which banks recover from candidates as the cost for conducting interviews.

Benefits if this decision is implemented:

  • Public sector banks, which recruit about 30,000-40,000 people a year on an average, expect to save time and cost once this common interview becomes a reality.
  • This decision will be helpful for all those candidates who clears the common written exam of IBPS but are not called for an interview.

The responsibility of taking this common interviews shall be given to IBPS as 20 banks are expected to give this authority to IBPS. Country’s largest lender, State Bank of India(SBI) will not be a part of the process. IBPS also conducts common written test (CWE) for these banks.
