In what comes as a great relief for those eyeing bank jobs, 28,118 candidates were allotted jobs in 21 participating banks by the Institute for Banking Personnel Selection (IPBPS).

In the list hosted by the IBPS, which conducted the Common Written Examination for Probationary Officers and Management Trainees (PO/MT-II), 13,442 unreserved posts, 4,415 vacancies for scheduled castes, 2,135 for scheduled tribes, and 7,608 for other backward communities, among others, were allotted to various banks according to their requirements.

For most of the aspirants this is good news because the validity of their scores would have expired next month. If they had not been allotted the jobs, they would have had to write the exam again.

With the announcement of a consolidated list, the PO–II allotment is deemed to have been completed.

Among the most competitive exams held in the country, this time about 7.50 lakh candidates appeared for the written test. Of these, 61,339 candidates qualified for the interview and 45,000 were declared successful/eligible for jobs in line with the vacancies. And, of these, 28,118 candidates were allotted jobs.

The IBPS has already conducted PO–III written examination and completed interviews. The results are expected to be announced soon.
