The upcoming year is going to see a new face of recruitment in public sector banks (PSBs). The PSBs have decided to opt for a common platform for recruitment of aspiring bankers into their guild. The need of bulk workforce in banks for the next few years has prompted them to adopt a method of common test for selection of candidates.

Once the candidate clears the common test, the recruitment process will be further administered by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) on behalf of PSBs.

"Once a pool of eligible candidates is created, banks can recruit on tap," said Dr K. Ramakrishnan, Chief Executive, Indian Banks' Association.

To begin with, 20 PSBs will join together for opting this test method as a part of the recruitment procedure. The largest lender of the country, State Bank of India and its associate banks have however not agreed to be a part of this process as of now.

With time, IBPS also plans to conduct pan-India tests for specialist officers in the fields of agriculture, information technology, accountancy, and law.

1. The State Bank of India and its associate banks have once again shown that they are better than 20 PSBs in understanding the need of the hour - recruiting better talent by using their own methods of assessment.
