IBPS Regional Rural Banks Officers (RRB)
Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) is an autonomous agency in India. In 1984, IBPS became an independent entity at the behest of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and Public Sector Banks. In 2011, IBPS announced a common written examination (CWE) for the selection Officers and Clerks in Indian banks.
IBPS CWE is now mandatory for anyone who seeks an employment in 20 public sector and regional rural banks. IBPS periodically accepts exam applications from the candidates on their website and the exams are organized at various locations in the country either in online or offline mode. SBI conducts its own recruitment exam and does not consider IBPS CWE.
The eligibility conditions to apply for these common examinations have been recently changed as per the approval of the Government of India. The minimum age to apply for PO and clerical exams is 20 years and the maximum age is 30. The minimum educational qualification is a degree from recognized university.
Additionally, applicants to the Specialist cadre are required to have a professional qualification in Law, Accounting, Agriculture, IT or management sector. A certificate in computer operations or knowledge in computers has also been mandated for posts other than specialist officers.
