The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) has relaxed the eligibility requirements for candidates looking at appearing for the common written examination for the appointment of probationary officers and management trainees.

The eligibility criteria of age and educational qualification have been relaxed for candidates who wish to appear for the written exam to be held in October.

Under the changed rules, the maximum qualifying age has been changed from 28 years to 30 years, allowing a larger number of candidates to appear for the exam.

Further, according to an official release issued on Monday, the mandatory requirement of being computer literate, that is, having a degree, diploma or certificate in computers or having computers or information technology as one of the subjects in high school, has been done away with.

In addition, the dates for registration and paying application fees have also been extended. The candidates can now register online and pay the fees online by August 17 instead of August 12 earlier, while the deadline for payment of fees (offline) has been extended to August 22 (from August 17, earlier).
