Bank of India To Recruit 4,500 this year- CMD Vijayalakshmi R. Iyer.
Bank of India (BoI), a state-owned commercial bank with headquarters in Mumbai, plans to recruit about 4,500 personnel both in the officer and clerical cadres in the current year, the Chairperson and Managing Director (CMD) of the bank Vijayalakshmi R. Iyer said.
While commenting on non-receipt of call letters by thousands of bank aspirants who had cleared the common written exam and the common interview conducted by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) and alloted to Bank of India (BoI), 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.”
She also said banks normally recruit about 30 per cent more staff than required to meet contingencies as many candidates who take up bank jobs only to quit in a short time.
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.
