How to Register Preferences of Banks for IBPS Clerks II Allotments

IBPS Clerk 2012-13 Preferences Guide, IBPS Clerk II Allotments, How to register clerk preferences, IBPS Bank clerks allotment procedure, How to submit preference for clerk allotments?

The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) has conducted the online CWE and Common Interview subsequently for the recruitment clerical cadre in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) and declared the Combined Marks last week. But the tension is not over yet for those who eying the clerical cadres jobs in PSBs.

IBPS LogoWhile Mumbai-headquartered Institute is on the verge of completing its recruitment process for CWE Clerical II, bank job aspirants remain tensed on how to choose their order of preference for clerk recruitment allotment in banks.  Many of our regular readers have asked for a complete guide which will help them registering preferences of banks for IBPS Clerks II Allotments.

To be honest with you all, there is no such guideline issued by the IBPS or any participating banks to follow at the time of registering your CWE Clerical II Bank preferences.

What is the Most Important Thing for Allotments?

First and the most important thing is your Final Combined Marks (CWE Clerk Written and Common Interview Marks) released by the IBPS last week. Your preference of organization is secondary because merit will followed by preference, we have learned from our sources.

Suppose a person has scored 65 and gave his 19th preference to Allahabad Bank and a person with 60 has given Allahabad Bank as 1st preference in sch a situation the person scoring higher i.e. 65 will be given the job in Allahabad Bank.

What Are My Chances?

It’s the natural question for all candidates who got the combined marks. From the day IBPS released final combined marks, we have seen websites and bank job related groups/ pages in Facebook flooded with this question.  But the bitter truth is that the prediction is simply impossible for us or any other bank job website because of the primary reason – Neither IBPS has published any merit list nor score ranges for us to analyze the situation. They also not disclosed the number of candidates are actually eligible to submit their order or preference.

What Will be My Preferences?

As we have only one sided date i.e the State-wise, category-wise, Bank-wise vacancy list released by the IBPS – according to us, there are only two ways for qualifiers to finalize their preferences.

  • Based on Number of Category-wise Vacancies
  • Based on Your Likes

Based on Number of Category-wise Vacancies:

The IBPS has declared the Category-wise, Sate-Wise CWE Clerical – II vacancy for 19 participating public sector banks last week. There are total around 38000 vacancy for all banks.

The category-wise vacancy for each participating bank will play an important role in allotment. Choose the bank with most number of vacancies from that list as your first preference & the one with least posts as last preference.

Example: West Bengal has total of 2265 clerical vacancies. 455 seats are reserved for Scheduled Caste, 103 seats for Scheduled Tribe, 436 for other Back-ward Class, 21 seats for HI, 20 seats for VI, 22 seats for OC, 184 seats for Ex-Servicemen and 82 seats are reserved for DisXS/DXS category candidates. A general category candidates only have 942 seats to compete.

Going by the Number of vacancy for General Category seats, Order of Preference for a General/Unreserved Category candidates in this method shall be Bank of India (207), Allahabad bank(132), United Bank of India (111), Punjab National Bank (103), Bank of Baroda (88), Central Bank of India (63), Indian Overseas Bank (59), Canara Bank (50),UCO Bank(28), Corporation Bank (26), Dena Bank (19), Oriental Bank of Commerce (19), Indian Bank (10), Vijaya Bank (9), Syndicate Bank (6), Andhra Bank (4), Bank of Maharastra (3), Punjab and Sing Bank (3) and Union Bank (2).

The same logic applies for candidates of all category and all states.

Based on Your Likes:

Many of you might have some fascination/dream about some particular bank and you might want to work for them. Some would want to join a bank that has sound financials, good growth rate etc.

Important Points to Remember:

  • Whichever bank you choose – clerical appointments shall happen within your state initially and would be asked to join in a branch within your state. So your preferences need not be based on posting location.
  • Candidates will get provisional allotment based on the performance in both online test and interview.
  • One successful candidate will be allotted only one of the participating banks.
  • If vacancies remaining unfilled, those will be allotted from the remaining candidates. In such case, a wait-list will be made from where unfilled vacancies will be filled.
  • Any request for changing allotment by the candidates will not be accepted.
  • IBPS has soul right to cancel, re-allot bank-wise allocation at anytime.

You can complete your preference registration by taking into account factors as mentioned above.
