Over 45,000 bank job aspirants who cleared the common written examinations for probationary officers and clerical posts conducted by the Institute of Banking Personal Selection (IBPS) last year are up in arms over the alleged delay in recruitment and lack of transparency.
These candidates, who have joined to form a group, will stage a protest at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on December 19, the aspirants’ forum said in a statement.
“For the last one year we have been left in the lurch, waiting for jobs. We have been given rankings/scorecards which are valid till March 2014. But only some of them have been given jobs, while over 30,000 are still waiting,” said M.V. Mohan, one of the 15,000 candidates who have qualified for a probationary officer’s post and awaiting appointment.
The aspirants allege that IBPS and banks are not responding to any queries and this is affecting their careers.
