May be change Interview Process for Bank Jobs

Psychometric Test to replace Interview Process for Public Sector Banks Jobs

May be change Interview Process for Bank Jobs

Just before the festive season starts, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced a happy news to millions of govt job aspirants in India. From January 1, 2016 there will be no Interviews for recruitment to central government jobs of Group C & D. This change in the selection process was informed to the nation by the PM himself during his radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’.

For the past few years, we are seeing a renewed interest among Indian youth to become bank or government employees. Due to this shift in mindset, lakhs of applications are being received whenever a new job vacancy is posted by any govt. department.
The government in turn is trying to infuse more transparency into recruitments so that they handle such large no. of people more efficiently.
“I want to announce that there will not be any interviews for non-gazette entry of group C and D in central government. This will be implemented from January 1, 2016”.
This change will eliminate corruption at lower levels as people run for recommendation after getting interview calls.  The abolition of interview will particularly help the poor who would normally fall prey to brokers”, he said proudly.
Will Bank Jobs have Interviews?
We know this question will be in the minds of bank job aspirants as many individuals who appear for SSC exams are also sitting for bank exams.
The prime minister has clearly said that the interviews are to be scrapped for central govt jobs that are categorized as group B, C & D. There was no mention about bank jobs in his speech.

Moreover, candidates who wish to work in a banking organizations must deal with customers on a daily basis. So interviews are the only way to test a person`s personality & get to know whether he/she can handle stress, knows about the banking sector, terms used etc.,
Above all, public sector banks have a separate recruitment process which is taken care by Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS). They already have only simplified hiring procedure involving a written test & common interviews.
Any current recruitments for these posts won’t be disturbed follow the earlier pattern only. The change will come into effect for notifications that are to be released after January 1, 2016.
It means interviews for bank job will continue as usual (until IBPS decides to abolish it). We will shortly confirm whether there will be interviews or not for clerical process.
