After 19 public sector banks and some old generation private sector banks, Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) will join the common written examination (CWE) bandwagon for recruitment process.
Finance Ministry in a communication to individual Regional Rural Banks said the Institute for Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) will conduct a Common Written Exam (CWE) for recruitment of officers and staff in the 82 RRBs across the country.
The CWE score card, which will be valid for a year, will be the basis for selection of candidates in the individual RRBs. Depending on vacancies, individual RRBs will invite the candidates who have cleared the CWE to apply for selection. Final selection will be made by the RRB concerned as per applicable procedure.
