Leave a Comment
India's largest bank, State Bank of India (SBI) has released recruitment notification for the posts of Probationary Officers for the year 2018. There are 2000 posts in total. In banking sector, SBI PO recruitment is considered to be most attractive and toughest recruitment (when compared to IBPS and other banking exams). As we have around 3 months time, with proper planning and hard-work, you can easily achieve your dream job. Here we are giving you the list of important books for SBI PO 2018 preparation. This list has been prepared by Sunaina Mondal, Assistant Manager (Scale-I) at State Bank of India (Selected in SBI PO 2016) and Aparna Pasupuleti. We are also giving the links to buy these books online so that you can buy the latest editions in lesser price.

Why to go for Standard Books instead of All in Ones ?
There are a number of books for banking exams available in market. The problem with these books is, they only change the cover title according to the exam. The content will be same for almost all banking exams (either it may be IBPS RRB, SBI PO or SBI Clerks). Working with these books wont be suffice for PO level exam, that too for the toughest exams like SBI PO. So if you can afford, always go for standard books instead of All in One remixes or just work with Previous Papers.

Bank Of Maharashtra CEO Removed : A C Rout is the new head

Leave a Comment
The Board of Directors of the Bank of Maharashtra decied to remove the arrested Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer Ravindra P Marathe and Executive Director R K Gupta from all functional responsibilities with immediate effect.

The development came nine days after the Pune police's Economic Offences Wing (EOW) arrested Marathe and Gupta in a case of around Rs. 2,43 crore fraudulent loans extended to the Pune-based DSK Group.

According to a statement released by the board, Executive Director A C Rout has taken over the responsibilities of MD & CEO. Rout was heading bank operations in absence of Marathe and Gupta and had presided over the bank’s AGM on June 21. It was unclear whether Rout was taking temporary charge until further arrangements could be made or it would be a long-term tenure.

Last month, the board of PNB divested executive directors K V Brahmaji Rao and Sanjiv Sharan of their powers in connection with the USD 2-billion fraud perpetrated by billionaire diamond jeweller Nirav Modi.

Allahabad Bank too take away all the powers of its CEO and MD Usha Ananthasubramanian, former chief of Punjab National Bank, in connection with the same fraud.

Essay : Reservation Policy in India - Does it Need Review ?

Leave a Comment

Reservation Policy in India - Does it Need Review ?

Overview
  • What is equality ? 
  • Caste system in India. 
  • Reservation policy taken by our Constitution. 
  • Mandal Commission report. 
  • The basic idea of reservation.
  • The change in the policy of reservation. 
  • Actual application of the policy is needed.
Two thousand years ago, the great philosopher Aristotle said, "Injustice arises when equals are treated unequally and also when unequals are treated equally". This profound statement is what lies at the heart of equality-a fundamental human right. Every human simply by virtue of being a human being is entitled to equal treatment.

The most significant, pervasive and violent discrimination in our country is the centuries old caste system. It was abolished by the Constitution in 1952 and untouchability was declared a crime. There was a category of people called dalits outside this system who were discriminated and treated as untouchables. They were thus given reservation by the government.

Reservation in India is the process of setting aside a certain percentage of seats (vacancies) in government institutions for members of backward and under-represented communities (defined primarily by caste and tribe). It is a form of quota-based affirmative action. Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and other backward classes are the primary beneficiaries of the reservation policies under the Constitution with the objective of ensuring a 'level' playing field.

Public Sector Banks account for 85% of Frauds : RBI

Leave a Comment
In it's recently released Financial Stability Report 2018, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced that the Public Sector Banks (PSBs) accounted for a staggering 85 per cent of nearly 6,500 fraud cases, amounting to more than Rs 30,000 crore.

Top 10 banking frauds in 2018 alone lead to a financial loss of Rs 10,000 crore. Banks had reported nearly 5,000 frauds amounting to Rs 20,000 crore in fiscal year 2017.

In recent years, frauds reported (For more than Rs 1 lakh) in the Indian banking sector show an increasing trend both in terms of number and quantum. In terms of the relative share of frauds, PSBs have a disproportionate share (more than 85 per cent) significantly exceeding their relative business share,” the RBI report said.

While the bulk of the total frauds were loan related, card and internet banking frauds also contributed to the sharp rise, alluding to the underlying vulnerability of technology-based delivery channels.

The Financial Stability Report (FSR) also highlighted that fraud reported in PSBs under prompt corrective action (PCA) is in excess of their relative share in credit.

The report also pointed to significant information asymmetry between external auditors and internal stakeholders, and its consequences on the quality of internal oversight.
