sponsored links

Qualification : B.Tech (ECE)

Venue : BOB, Jaipur

Date : 7/1/14

IBPS Score : 73

Panel : 2

Time : 1 PM

I reached there at 12:30 pm. Firstly i must tell u i faced the worst administration there, there was no one to receive us or to tell us what to do? all the candidates were in confusion, asking each other what to do yar?

finally we asked a peon and he told us everything.
then we waited for the doc verification.
first candidate name was called and it was me. i was the first candidate in that batch, i went for doc verification.
they are checking following things:
1. call letter with pic
2. photo id proof as attached with the admit card
3. printout of the form filled
4. date of birth proof
5. all semester marksheets
6. consolidated marksheet and degree
7. other certificates

* one important thing is that they are considering the gradration date as written on the final sem marksheet. I have completed my in 2013. the date writn on my final sem mrksheet is 1/7/13 and on consolidtd mrksht an pc it is 25/7/13. thank god they are considering the result date. so candidate who r confusd with graduation date must ensure that their final sem mrksht should be on or before 1.7.13 so i got my doc verified till 2.30 pm.

My turn came at bout 3 pm after lunch. i was a bit nervous coz iwas the first one to be interviewed. i entered the room asking permission.

there were 4 men, M1,M2,M3,M4
a circular arrangement, i have to sit in the middle of a circular table and there was a little space to enter in that circle. i said good morning to M1,M2 and M4 ( although it was afternoon then but i lost in nervousness. and M3 was busy on a call behind)

they said good morning, please have a seat.
me- thank you sir

M2- so nikhil what u have done in ur graduation>

M2- idbi is not a development bank, give me example?

provided in these accounts.

M2- ok now tell me how ur engineering revelant in banking?
me- sir i think banking is nothing but technology these days. atm, mobile banking, internet banking, cbs and many other have made banking synonyms with technology. so i think that being a technocrat it will be really comfortable for me to work in such a technical environment. moreover i can solve some technical issues.

M2- for that we have technical staff, u can just plug in or plug out a system, u r not allowed to do anything else in that.
me- yes sir its true but i mean that i will have a strong hand over other non tech graduates.

M2- yes, now that u can say.
me- yes sir

me- sir, i think it is 27 degree c

M1- oh,,no its not, u r a science student, u must aware of that. dint u suffered from fever ever?
me- yes sir i did but i dint use thermometer anytime.

M1- thats ok. now he pointed to M3 to ask.
( right answer is 37 degree c or 98.6 degree f)

M3 asked all questions from banking like a rapid fire round, as i went prepared for banking, answered all

M3- firstly tell me why u want to join banking?
me- sir i always wanted to do a job which will assure me with future growth and also stability and respect in society. And i think that bank is the most caring organisation, it takes care of its employees
in all aspects. i mean if u r working really, giving ur best to ur bank then the bank will definately take care of u. so these are the things which attracted me towards banking services. But the think that most attracted me is the fast and fair selection process and the neat and clean job. i mean there is no political interference in the selection process and u will have to work freely without any political environment. thats y i m here today.
( all of them seemed satisfied)

M3- what is monitary policy? why it is declared?
me- sir by declaring monitary policy, rbi controls the market liquidity, it is declared 2 times a year and reviewed 4 times a year and the governer has the full authority to declare it anytime. it is declared basically to change diffrent rates and so as to control the liquidity.

M3- who is the present governer?
me- Mr. Raghu Ram Govind Rajan

M3- tel me how many type of deposit accounts r there in banks?
me- sir 4 type of accounts r there- saving, current, fixed deposit and
Recurring deposit

M3- what is the basic difference between saving and current account?
me- sir in saving account the transactions are limited, it is basically to encourage the habit of saving in people. and the current account is for businessmen and firms, in these accounts transactions are not limited.

M3- tell me when was the first nationalisation done? and why?
me- sir the first nationalisation was done in 1969 and it is of 14 banks.. it was done by Mrs. Indra Gandhi in the favour of public. the goverment realised that the people wnt to avail banking services so in there faith the nationalisation was done.
