Banking preference for IBPS Clerk and PO Exam

Banking preference for IBPS Clerk and PO Exam
While applying for IBPS PO and Clerk exams, there will be a great doubt between the candidates is that how to fill the banking preference. You can decide it by certain factors
1) Preference based on top banks
2) Preference based on Proficiency of Official language or Local language
3) Preference based on hometown
4) Based on Head quarters
5) Preference Based on Number of Branches
Based on Headquarters of the banks-
The headquarters can be one of the criteria for choosing a bank. This is because whatever bank you chose, you will find more number of branches in the state where the headquarter is located. Now if we take the example of Bank of Baroda, it has more number of branches in Gujrat and the probability of getting the posting in Gujrat increases. So you can chose accordingly.
Following is the list of the banks with their headquarters. You can take it as a regional preference that can be near your place. As an example, suppose you reside in UP and you get the posting in Gujrat, then its okay and if you by mistake chose a bank that has a reach in Southern India, then it can be harder for you to accommodate and same is the case for vice-versa. So it's better to review what you have in mind.

Based on the area of your choice-
If you want to get posted exclusively in metro cities you should go only for banks such as ECGC, Bhartiya Mahila Bank, IDBI etc. And if you are comfortable with any other postings Tier II, III cities you can choose other options.
