Bank of India plans to recruit about 4,500 personnel both in the officer and clerical cadres in the current year, said Vijayalakshmi R. Iyer, the bank’s Chairperson and Managing Director.
Commenting on non-receipt of call letters by thousands of aspirants who had cleared the bank exams and the interview, she said “there has been a slight delay in the process. They will be getting the letters in due course.”
She said the banks indicate to the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS), which is entrusted with the task of selection, the number of officers they need. The question of sending call letter may only be “a small aberration… and I don’t see any other reason for it.”
On reports of many candidates who take up bank jobs only to quit in a short time, Vijayalakshmi Iyer said banks normally recruit about 30 per cent more staff than required to meet such contingencies.
It was possible that the selected candidates might not join a particular bank for some reason. But since they had gone through the entire selection process, it may not be that they did not prefer a banking career.
