In the next round of banking secotr consolidation, Delhi based Punjab National Bank (PNB) is likely to take over Andhra Bank, Allahabad Bank and Oriental Bank of Commerce (OBC). The process of merger will start in coming 3 months. The new government, which is going to be formed soon will make decision about this merger process.

To reduce bad lonas, the Indian government has been trying to consolidate its banking sector by merging smaller regional public-sector banks with larger government-owned banks. Merging banks is also meant to create superior lenders which can size up to global competitors.

In the year 2017, the government merged India's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) with its five associate banks viz State Bank of Patiala, State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur, State Bank of Raipur, State Bank of Travancore, State Bank of Hyderabad as well as with Bhartiya Mahila Bank (BMB).

Later the government merged Bank of Baroda (BoB) with Dena Bank and Vijaya Bank, making it India's 2nd largest bank beating private sector lender ICICI Bank.

Last year, the government engineered state-owned Life Insurance Corp's takeover of IDBI Bank, a step to ensure that the bank with one of the highest levels of bad loans on its books is well capitalised.

In banking sector, SBI PO recruitment is considered to be most attractive and toughest recruitment (when compared to IBPS and other banking exams).

    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.
