IBPS relaxes eligibility criteria for CWE/PO/MT-III 2013

July 26 (TruthDive): IBPS has relaxed the eligibility criteria for candidates  looking to appear for the CWE/PO/MT-III 2013.

The Institute of  Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS), a unit of National Institute of Bank Management (NIBM) is an autonomous body that aims to develop and promote an efficient system for recruitment, promotion and placement of  professionals in banking industry. Its services are now extended to cover non-banking sectors as well.

IBPS introduced Common Written Exam (CWE) for Officer and Clerical cadres for public sector banks. Banks will have to recruit almost 7.5 lakh personnel in the next 5 years, IBPS Director Mr M Balachandran had said in May this year.

With such a huge requirement in the anvil, relaxation of eligibility criteria for banking aspirants by IBPS has been lauded by the All India Students Association (AISA) and All India Students Federation (AISF) in Patna recently.
