IBPS PO 3: The Big Fight Against New Eligibility Criteria

IBPS PO 3 – The Big Fight Against New Eligibility Criteria. IBPS PO/MT 2013-14 New Criteria.

The tussle among banking aspirants, Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS), Ministry of Finance (MOF) and Banks regarding imposing 60% criteria in graduation & bringing down upper age limit to 28 years does not seem to be ending. Banking aspirants has been conducting nationwide protests across the country, specially in Delhi, Bihar, Lucknow etc. Few candidates have moved to the court where as others are holding protests.

khandelwal committee on banking reformsChairman and Managing Director (CMD) of Canara Bank Mr. Dubey and CMD of Bank of Baroda Mr.SS Mundhra faced the protest of banking aspirants in Bihar, both of them assured to take up the matter with IBPS. According to sources, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sri Ravishankar Prasad has met finance secretary Rajiv Takru and opposed this criteria, finance secretary gave him assurance to look into the matter seriously. While students are still going on with their protest both online & on streets. Even though many local news channel has telecast this news & protests but it seems the voices of jobless youth is yet to reach our big media houses or national channels who find more interest in celebrity affairs than an issue of youth ,which may bar lakhs of students from sitting in the recruitment process of one of the largest recruiting sector in India.

Detailed finding have been found that contrary to the belief 60% in Graduation for the post of Probationary Officer (PO) in fact was not one of the proposals of Khandelwal Committee report, the report suggests that eligibility for Clerical Cadre should be Graduate and for PO diplomas in banking can be made compulsory, while government has accepted the new criteria for clerk, they rejected committee’s recommendation regarding PO and instead implemented 60% in graduation criteria which is now under scanner,while there has not been any positive response from IBPS, many students association like AISA, RYA, ABVP has come out to support banking aspirants which indeed is helping them to strengthen there protest,in coming days it is to be seen whether government takes back this criteria completely or try divide & rule by may be decreasing percentage criteria to a certain extent, if aspirants keep up there momentum may be a positive outcome can be expected for everyone.

    Entrance is important for choose a perfect candidate -no % criteria

  2. hope soon the old criteria will be restored. hats off to aspirants of lucknow & patna where the protest has been on a large scale.I wish same level of protest had come from all parts of the country. wishing everyone good luck in their goal.

  3. truly said admin::khandelwal proposed banking diploma for officer but ibps changed it to stupid criteria of 60% in graduation. ibps is such strange & stupid body. even banks have no clue about criteria change. in patna students protested in front of cmd(they were in patna for official visit) of canara & bob ,both cmds told them they have no information about criteria change. it can be said that only ibps is responsible for criteria change.

  4. I will request to everybody in the country to protest and file petition one by one in the court, not only for IBPS PO but also for IBPS RRB, specially oppositions in the centre, Khandewal committee cant not take decision by itself, people elect government not government to people, Moreover decision by the government which affects life of lakh of people mere by government itself is not right decision of government. Government should understand problem of lakh of people. Its not not just we clear paper or not, its about platform which is pulled back by percentage and age criteria. Please its my request to Opposition Parties in centre help us.

  5. IBPS is not the Government to take decision by itself, they should ask to people before passing a Law into cation, IBPS administration should be removed from the designation.

  6. Every body is having through mental harassment because of IBPS ill decision, IBPS is taking decision of divide and rule, but i assure we all are one whether they make differences in %, age and Degree and all policies of IBPS. If IBPS would be at centre, than what will happen of country. Moreover they have shattered dreams and thrown water on everybody preparation. whatever will be the decision IBPS is enjoying by making this Divide and rule. there are not capable people in the administration. Shame on them.

  7. IBPS is making competition before examination, Sab lad ke mar jayege, IBPS ko ban kar dena chahiyye, IBPS ko bahar fanko, IBPS padhne valo ko disturb kar rahi hai, Itna shochk hai agar poltics ka IBPS ko to unko election ladne chahiye. please government do something about IBPS official.

  8. Pichale Ak saal me jo IBPS ne Nuksaan kiya uska harzaaza kaun bharega, ak saal to IBPS vo IBPs so falla dimka , unke upar to maan hani ka dava bi karna chahiye.

  9. what abt the students with technical background….. Protest against IBPS …!!! they should cancel new criteria

  12. Thanku Bihar, lucknow and delhi for your major contribution.

  13. New rule 60% aggregate in graduation is not good for Student’s career and life,Pls change this rule……..

  14. online application will started 22 july. just one day remaining left. once online registration started then we can’t do anything.

  15. I HAVE 3 POINTS………………

    1. THERE SHOULD BE DIFFERENCE IN ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA BETWEEN CLERICAL CADRE & OFFICER CADRE.

    2. IN IBPS1 ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR CLERK WAS 10TH /12TH /GRADUATION

    BUT IN IBPS2 IT WAS CHANGED TO GRADUATION.

    THEN WHERE YOU WERE??????????

    3. MOST IMPORTANT

    BEFORE IBPS, WHEN BANKS INDIVIDUALLY RECRUITED THEIR OFFICER POST, MANY BANKS FOLLOWED THE CRITERIA 60% IN GRADUATION.

    EVEN IN IBPS1, MANY BANKS FOLLOWED THE SAME CRITERIA 60% IN GRADUATION.

    SO WHY NOT NOW??????????

    • qki tb wo common exam nai tha or ab banking sector me jyada boom h or ha sbi me tba po k lye grad and clrk k lye kewl 12 thi jo ab bhi h or tb har student ko pta tha k 60% pr hi form bhr skte h lekin ibps ne nya criteria rkha jsme or student b from bhr skte the jab yehi crietria rkhna tha to fr ibps k jrurat kya thi fr 2no ibps me b starting isi crieteria se honi chye thi tb hum log koi objction nai krte pr ab ye sisha sidha pasy looten ka trika h ok

      • they are playing with our future or jb sbke fufture k sth khilwad hga to kisi ek k against jane se kch nai hta jsy k tum

        • ibps 1 me jis bank 60% rkha tha usne bd criteria reduce kr dya tha koi b bank ka advt uthkr pd lena ok

    • Its easy for you to say at a secure position, but the scenario is not as easy, you have to look in the history and its effects on lakhs of aspirants, aspirants like me and thousands are fighting against wrong decision of mgt. eg. we judge our development by the way of technological advancement and ultimately GDP and profit, So lakhs of condidates and their followers future is vanished, these are the consequences, Aspirants are positive for their sake thats how majority of groups retaliating, you have to wait for the consequence till than we cant fairly say anything. we are a particular group of less privileged aspirants, and think not you thats it. Moreover we wants to remove IBPS from beginning. you should also stands for fight against evil. its not about gain or loss its about rights.

    LUCKNOW:
    Banking aspirants and students, led by the All India Students
    Association (AISA), staged a protest against the Institute of Banking
    Personnel Association (IBPS) here on Friday .

    The protest march
    from Kapoorthala crossing t o Vivekanand Polyclinic was against the new
    IBPS norms that restrict the age limit of candidates for banking
    examinations to 28 years. The students also criticised the qualifying
    norm of a minimum of 60% marks in graduation.

    Nitish Kannaujia,
    secretary AISA, Lucknow University said, “The lowering of age limit
    from 30 years to 28 years would bar several aspirants from taking the
    examination. Moreover, setting a minimum 60% criteria in graduation for
    all aspirants is also an absurd idea and is against the larger interest
    of students.”

    The protestors demanded that their demand to
    lower the age limit and not to fix a minimum 60% criteria be accepted by
    the district magistrate and forwarded to the concerned minister.

    The aspirants said that the joint examination for banks conducted by
    IBPS was taken by a lrge number of students all over the country. “All
    those who do not fare well in graduation and fail to get a first
    division should not be barred from taking up the banking career,” said a
    protestor.

    Sudhanshu, a member of AISA, said that a meeting
    with the DM had been fixed and the letter would be submitted to him on
    Saturday.
