BANK CET, Common All India Entrance Test (CET) for Bank Jobs (PO & Clerical) from 2011
With an attempt to steamline Bank Recruitment in Public Sector Banks in India, , Indian Banks Association has launched a Common All India Entrance Test (CET) which will start from next year i.e. 2011. The exams will be mainly for clerical staff and entry-point officers (Probationary officers, Specialist Officers - Law Officers, EDP Officers , Tech. and Management Executives.
The requirement of more work force in the banks, which has increased sharply for the past few years and going to follow the same trend in coming years, forced the PSBs to opt for such an action. It’s good news for those seeking to join Public sector banks as well as for the banks themselves because the new procedure would definitely reduce the time and make it easier.
The current recruitment process in the Public Sector Banks takes almost a year to recruit the candidates. The recruitment process begins with the advertisement and then goes through examination, then interview and then finally recruitment. Apart from this so much of time before and after the examination results into mental tension to the candidates. Now, they can take a sigh of relief.
20 public sector banks have joined this…The SBI group has its own recruitment process and it will continue with it
The recruitment process will be administered by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) on behalf of PSBs, once the candidate clears the common test. IBPS will declare the results of the exam and give a scorecard to the candidates which will be valid for up to one to one-and-a-half-years. Once the validity period of the scorecard expires, the candidate will have to reappear for the exam.
Once a candidate passes the common entrance exam, all that he or she has to do is to respond to an individual bank's advertisement and appear for an interview.
The recruitment process which now takes about a year to be completed will drop drastically by a third, reducing the mental tension candidates currently go through after an exam.
Three-four such common entrance examinations are planned to be conducted every year and "this should begin in 2011," Ramakrishnan , Indian Banks Association's chief executive, informed reporters
