IBPS released the Probationary Officers (PO) 2013 recruitment notification earlier. There is lot dissatisfaction over the changed eligibility criteria. Iam also feeling very sad for you guys. Even though it was a expected move, i cant digest this. How they can decide one's talent just with graduation %. PSU Banks are taking very bold decision without taking care of unemployed youth..
Now, Is possible to change eligibility criteria now?
Banks don't even think of it. They have taken this decision after discussing the matter for one year. Because of huge competition to bank jobs, they want to filter candidates and absorb best candidates in this way. We cant blame IBPS for this change. They just follow the instructions of Govt of India & PSU Banks.
Some people are saying that, they are going file a PIL in high court or some thing. But these things never work. Banks issue new criteria after looking at legality of change. This decision was not taken in a single day. It was implemented after 1 and half year. So, Dont expect any change. So, don't waste your time with those kind of things. Forget about IBPS PO 2013, if you are General candidate with less than 60% score in graduation.
You have only 2 opportunities in your hand now. 1. RRB PO & Clerk 2. IBPS Clerk
If you want to work as PO only, prepare for RRB PO. As a RRB PO, you will have chance to work nearer to or in your own town. It is never possible in PSU Banks. Salary is same for all. Only allowances differs. RRB PO's wont get petrol & lease rent accommodation allowance. All others are same for All. After working as PO for 2 years, you are eligible to write Scale 2 direct recruitment exams.
If you want work only PSU banks, you can write IBPS clerk exam, for which we can expect notification in few months. There is no % criteria for clerks. If you join as a clerk in any PSU, you will get promotion within 3 to 4 years. IF you pass JAIIB & CAIIB exams, you will definitely get promotion in 3 years at present.
So, Be Positive & Move Forward with the Opportunities you have... Share your views on this post in comments section.
