How to fill Bank Preference in IBPS PO and Clerk
Well, almost two years in a row, I find students perplexed over the best banks under IBPS. Talk about filling up the form, and almost everyone is confused about how to fill up the preference list for the exam.
Last year, I was perplexed, too. But this time around I was quite clear on how to fill Bank Preference in IBPS PO and Clerk.
Without further adieu, let me quickly tell the best banks under IBPS PO and Clerk as of 2014.
- Bank of Baroda
- Bank of India
- Punjab National Bank
- Union Bank
- Canara Bank
Apart from these five top banks in India, almost every other bank (under IBPS) is the same. Some people may raise eyebrows that I have placed Punjab National Bank in the third place. This ranking is purely based on assets/deposits. Punjab National Bank was on the top till 2012. However, in 2013 Bank of Baroda took over as the top bank. In 2014, Punjab National Bank again slid one rank to occupy the third position. In terms of domestic assets/deposits, Punjab National Bank is still on the top. But taking into account foreign assets, Punjab National Bank is on the third position.
It’s predicted that several mergers is going to happen in coming years. Choosing any of the above mentioned banks will secure your future as your seniority list may not be affected. With any other banks, I wouldn’t be so sure. These five banks will not be merged. However, rest of the banks may get merged with these five.
But, if you have other preferences, you may tweak this list to build your own list. For example, if you want a posting in South India, you may opt for Andhra Bank, Vijaya Bank, etc. If you don’t want posting in rural areas, IDBI is your best bet! And the list goes on and on!
With two years of rural posting, you’ll have good chances of promotion. So, select a bank that’ll benefit you long term.
This was an analysis of the Best Banks Under IBPS PO and Clerk. I hope this analysis will help you fill Bank Preference in IBPS PO and Clerk next time. If you’ve anything that you want to share regarding this topic; some ideas, opinions or disagreement maybe; let us know in the comments.
