Candidates who get qualified in IBPS in 2011-12 got upset when Banks had announced that graduation was the minimum criteria for clerical posts, their disappointment has been taken note of and addressed to Mr M.Balachandran who is the Director of Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS).
As a result of which three major issues are discussed which are-
1)To postpone the requirment of graduation for the post of clerk,means Non-graduates are eligible for current exam cycle.
2)To reduce the online fees which is to be submitted by the candidates each time they apply for any bank vacancy.
3)To restrict multiple selection of few candidates, so that other candidates can also get chance to appear for different bank interviews.
IBPS(Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) relaxed the Clerical recruitment criteria for the non graduates.
Banks had earlier announced that graduation was the minimum criteria for clerical posts which had upset a number of candidates who were non-graduates and had passed the common exam held for these posts. As nearly 15 per cent of the 5.31 lakh successful candidates were non-graduates.As a result of which it was decided to recommend postponement of higher eligibility criteria(Graduation) for the current exam cycle.
Also,In deference to the demands from candidates, the application fee to be charged by various banks is likely to be reduced from Rs 200 to 100 and from Rs 50 to 20.
The IBPS and banks had also discussed the phenomenon of a few candidates getting multiple offers while a disproportionately large number of lower-ranked candidates did not get any call at all.The IBPS and banks have decided to introduce some measures to restrict it by restrict the joining time given to candidates to around three weeks.If the selected candidates don’t respond or join on the due date, the offer will straightaway be given to the next eligible candidate on the waiting list.
Banks also have been told to keep a waitlist of candidates equal to the number of vacancies. Banks will conduct fresh interviews from amongst those who applied to them to fill up left over vacancies.
It has also been decided that IBPS will provide the details of the varying eligibility criteria with regard to qualification, age, etc., prescribed by different banks while calling for applications for future common written exams.
These action taken by IBPS can relax the candidates,as they are taken in favour of the applying candidates.
We wish great luck to our IBPS candidates and hope for their selection in different banks..
