IBPS Clerk Bank preference

After cracking IBPS clerk interview you have to decide bank preference.I have created documents to help you make the decision.The data is taken from Reserve Bank of India so it is genuine.Two factors are important while deciding bank preference

  • Location — Number of branches bank have in your state.The more the number of branches bank have in your state better it is.It increases chances to get posting near your residence.I have created a free download document for you.
  • Bank Growth — The bigger the bank the better the facilities.If the bank business grows year after year better it is for you.I have created a document to address this point as well.

Now you can download the files from links provided below (3rd and 4th). The third file lists 5 banks with maximum number of branches (along with number of branches in your state). You should copy all the five banks corresponding to your state.Now search those banks in second file.Second file lists all banks in order of their profit last year.So you can easily found biggest banks and banks growing fast.

So biggest and most profit doing banks should be given preference (with maximum number of branches in your state). In case you have any confusion feel free to ask me using comment form.

    Hi Mam,

    I have successfully qualified IBPS CLERK IV and have been called for interview. I am a 2008 graduate in English honors. In my application, I have mentioned work experience of 9 months, wherein I have worked with a magazine as an intern after my graduation.

    What should be by answer when they ask, “What have I have been doing from 2008 up to 2015?”

    I had previously qualified IBPS CLERK III, both written and interview but couldn’t make it to the final list. Should I mention that or not?

      The date you have passed graduation which is written on degree certificate is important.It does not depend on time you made application for the certificate.So in your case you are eligible

    Hi Madam,
    I have been shortlisted for interview for IBPS clerk-4.When I was applying for it I put my 1st preference was Allahabad bank.
    So, please could you tell me the best answer to convince them on my preference

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Just read about Allahabad bank.It is one of the largest bank and operates majorly in eastern India

      1. Esha Upadhyay

        I just scanned website and does not seem to be Government bank.You can go through the website and look for the same

  48. sree

    hai. I got general doubt on entering the interview room.How to enter the room by holding the certi. file in one hand and walking with hands free or hold our hands in obedience and walk.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You can carry documents in one hand nothing wrong in that.You should be natural there is no need to change walking style

  50. Rajesh

    Hello madam
    Right now i am working in private MNC software company.But I didn’t mention this in my ibps clerk application form.After i join in the bank is ther any possibilities to find my previous experience by the bank.I mean with the help of PAN number or PF account of my private mnc company..I am really worrying on this..Please answer for it..

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      This is not a problem.Before joining bank you will resign your previous organization and will not be on its payroll so it will not be a problem

  51. sathish

  52. Sushant Mithari

    Hello madam is it necessary to carry resume while going fr interview or our online application is sufficient? After doc verification do we have to show certificates to interview panel? I hv one doubt about my name on documents
    My full name is Sushant Janardan Mithari. But on all of my educational certificates right frm Xth to MA my name printed is Mithari Sushant J. My father’s full name hasn’t appeared due to some mistake in past. However I hv put my full name in IBPS CWE application.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

  55. manasa

    hai mam.Iam married and we settled in hyderabad.Now I was qualified in ibps clerk4 CWE.But if they ask me a question ” Your husband job is in hyderabad.but you will not be posted in hyderabad only.then how can you justify to your job and to your family life?”

  56. Priyanka

    Hello Mam,
    I hav been selected for interview of clerk IV ibps exam.
    One of the condition to appear for interview is to submit “NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE” from current employer. I m working in a co-op bank & they are not ready to give me “NOC” for interview (they are stating that they are not coming under govt sector to give Noc”).
    I hav already mailed about this to ibps for guidance in this situation but i hav nt got any reply from them.
    Will this “NOC” create a problem for me at interview?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      If they say NOC is not required then you can go ahead with NOC and mention that to IBPS.Have they given it in written

          1. Priyanka

            they (employer) say they will not even reply to my mail regarding my mail for asking for noc

          2. Esha Upadhyay

            Are you in Government organization or private one? IF private one then NOC not required.

  60. rohit

    hello madam,
    i am hotel management graduate and i was working in hotel since last 3 years.
    generally, candidates are been asked questions related to their graduation subjects, so what might be the relative questions they may ask to me.

    my attempt was 164 and im expecting 115 to the least, cutoff in maharashtra is 88. so what are my chances in final selection.

    thank you…

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      This is competitive exam so selection chances can not be forecasted easily based on marks of your own.

  68. Raju

    Hello maam..

    I am a B.Tech graduate.I cleared IBPS clerk exam .I have a previous 10 months banking experience as a clerk in HDFC bank.I resigned it due to high sales targets and high work pressure.I resigned 6 months ago.I have completed my graduation in 2012.Kindly suggest me a proper explanation for leaving the previous organisation, so that i can convince the interview board.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Preparation for IBPS Clerk exam can be cited as one of the reason.When exams approached you thought of dedicating more time in studies so left the job and focused on preparation

      1. Raju

        One of my friend with a similar situation appeared for the IBPS clerk last year.When he cited these reasons they asked that What is the point in resigning the clerk job in one bank and preparing the clerk job in another bank as the packages are almost same.Kindly suggest a good reason.

        1. Esha Upadhyay

          Now tell them difference of working in private bank as clerk and Government Bank as a clerk

  69. monika

    hello ma’am
    i clear ibps clerk exam….my querie is that at the time of filling application form i mention my PG qualification detail…but after ibps clerk exam my college inform that there is some calculation mistake in mark-sheet n they want back…know i have new mark-sheet…percentage and date know changed and also in new mark-sheet “revised marksheet” is not return.so is there problem occur during document verification.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Do you have any communication proof about mark sheet revision.During pre interview document verification you can tell them this and get the data corrected this will not be an issue

  70. Mohit

    Mam, I am Mohit…I am from haryana…I am very weak at speaking English…what should I do in interview…should I say I can’t speak English or should I try….also my Hindi has haryanvi accent…will it be a problem…please reply

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      IBPS interview language is English and local language most of the times.Also you do not have to be very fluent.Speak with confidence and slow to avoid any mistakes.It should be understandable

  71. Veera

    hello mam, My name in 10th, 12th, CMM, Provisional and degree certificate is MADINENI VEERASEKHAR, but in semester wise mark memos it was printed as VEERA SEKHAR M. Is there any problem with this during document verification…..

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Does all semester marksheet have same name? If that is the case write a application to university for change of name and carry application receipt during interview for safety

      1. Veera

        upto 3rd year marks memos it printed as VEERA SEKHAR M and in final year marks memo it printed as like in 10th and degree certificate

        1. Esha Upadhyay

          Then it should not be a problem but getting the name corrected from university will be good

  72. Pritha Ghosh

    Mam i have a poor percentage in my class 12 examination.What reason should i give if during interview they ask me about it

    Hi madam,
    1.Do i need to carry a character certificate for the interview?
    2.Self attested copies means ,we can sign on the xerox copies and carry them or we need to get it signed by a govt employee?

    1. Nivas

      Self attested means attested by self
      Gazetted attested means attested by Gazetted officer.
      So you need to sign on your documents not gazetted officer.

  110. Karthika

    Hi madam,
    I have a doubt, for my ibps po interview i answered all questions (all from banking) except one. while answering towards the end of answers they also spoke along with me like a discussion. At the end the main person told me that ‘ i think you have studied something’ i said ‘yes’ and then he again asked ‘did u go for any coaching’ i replied ‘yes’.
    what did he mean? is it a positive response or negative? is this a sign of passing interview?

          Please believe my words as I appeared IBPS interview in previous. THEY WILL NOT ALLOW YOU IF YOUR OBC IS IN State Government format. SHOULD CARRY CENTRAL GOVERNMENT FORMAT ONLY WITH CREAMY LAYER MENTIONED. No of people were rejected due to OBC only.
          You can call me on my no. if you have any queries 8885665995

    Hello mam,
    i have cleared ibps clerk-4 exam from maharashtra & shortlisted for an interview which are going to held in next month. my problem is that i am currently studying mtech but i didn’t mentioned it in application form. so should i tell them at the time of interview or not? I really need this job. but if i hide it from them then can any problem occur?

    1. prince kumar

      I m also facing the same problem. But we should hide our higher education. Cause if we will disclosure the more qualification, they will put up more question. We can say that after our b.tech. we were preparing for the government service. No body can’t regret our this excuse.

      1. Anurag

        In officer level bank exams also we should not mention abt mtech?

    2. Anurag

      So u told abt ur mtech to them?
      Suggest me also , should I mention post graduation in bank exam or not.

        Hi mam, recently i went uttar pradesh for getting sc certificate in ibps format, but since i am married and stay in haryana so my interview is in haryana, so my sc certificate made in uttarpradesh will create any problem in interview, will they allow me to give interview..

          As per IBPS notification Caste Certificate issued by the competent authority in the prescribed format as stipulated by Government of India in the case of SC / ST / OBC category candidates.

      Sales job with low salary and career growth are the reason you want to switch to Bank


    I had graduated from dehradun in 2012. I have got all my Marks Sheet of graduation and Provisional Certificate given by the University but I DONT HAVE ORIGINAL CERTIFICATE OF GRADUATION as delay in issuing due to first Uttarakhand Massacre and Secondly some Legal Case against college for entering additional words in certificate. They will issue the certificate in the next 2-3 months time. Will I be allowed in the Interview of IBPS CLERK scheduled on feb 2015 ?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Provisonal certificate will help but you need to give written application that you will produce the original later


      Giving an Application for Certificate Submittion date will work in the Site ?? If so , then its a relief for me .
      Thanx Ma’m.

  168. Trisha

    Hello Mam,
    I am from Kolkata and have been shortlisted for IBPS Clerk interview. I have graduated from an institute here which is affiliated to PTU. I have not received my final semester marksheet yet but I do have the internet generated copy of my marks card stamped with the seal of my institute and attested by our HOD. I also have the provisional certificate, but the one issued by our college and not the university. Will those work? Also what documents should I ask for my college so as to furnish the proof of passing graduation before 01/09/14?
    Waiting anxiously for your reply.

  190. Priyanka Bhattacharya

    Mam, i have been shortlisted for the ibps po 4 interview, i have done masters in english literature, since it is so vast i’m worried about what kind of questions they might ask from my subject…
    and if they ask why i want a bank job after doing m.a. in english then what should i say?
    one more thing that i wanted to know is whether they ask questions from honours subject only or from optional (pass) subjects as well?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      IBPS personnel will not ask questions from Honours or pass.If they do then it will be basic questions.After MA in English teaching is one option which you do not like so you are joining Banks.

    Mam I am S.K. Dubey,I have 6 year of teaching experience in engineering college.but it is a private job and i want a permanent job thats why i went for banking.Now i qualified IBPS 4 Po exam,but i am very much tenced about the question that why you want to join bank,why you want to leave your teaching.Also i have done M.Tech.,so they ask about my over qualification.please mam suggest me how to convince them,because i dont want to lose this job.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Having 6 years of experience in teaching and MTECH does make the matter worse.Why have not you tried Government teaching job will be one of the questions

      1. s.k. dubey

        mam for getting government teaching job there is requirement of P.hd. and i dont want to pay more 4 or 5 years for this,thats why i am not interested in government teaching job.also mam i am not interested in teaching,its my optional field.i like to do government job like bank or any engineering job like bsnl jto etc.mam i know it become worse for me but still i want some convincing answer.please mam i am helpless for this.I know any question which is related to my job,about banking or about current gk, definately i am able to answer,but this point making me tenced.please help me mam.

        1. Esha Upadhyay

          That is why I asked you previous question.Now you can say I am in Private teaching field and it is not stable field.Over the years I tried doing phd so that I can get good Government teaching job.But that did not work out well.So I am switching to Banking job.

    I want ask a question.
    I have applied to RRB assistant(clerk) and qualified the exam.
    My problem is that i am overqualified.
    I have done my B.Tech and after B.Tech i have 1 year gap then i have completed my M.Tech in Instrumentation this year. I could’nt get a job because there are very minimal jobs in this sector and I want to do a Govt job.
    What should i explain to them. It’s very very hard to explain. I will be most thankful if get a good understandable answer to this question to give to the authorities. Plzz help

        1. Esha Upadhyay

          It depends how you handle it but it will be disadvantage..They will always feel you might give up the job for other opportunity.This is the real problem

  203. pratima chaudhary

    i m a bcom student with 6 months of work ex in icici bank.My designation was customer service officer.My ques.to u is tht if i called for a clek interview,they will surely ask me tht y do u want to join as a clerk as u already worked as an officer.
    I am not getting a perfect answer for this.Kindly assist me

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Is your salary as customer service officer in ICICI bank greater than that offered to Bank Clerk.If not then you can use it to create answer

      1. pratima chaudhary

        thanku for the reply.But,i guess that salary of an officer is more than a clerk.So,how shud i frame my answer.

        1. Esha Upadhyay

          What was your job role as Customer service officer? The point is you need to convince them IBPS Clerk is better job than your current one or there is solid reason of joining as Bank clerk by ditching your current job.

    I got job as a clerk in corporation bank. joining dates are yet to announce. I have also applied to rrb APGVB Clerk now. my query is which of these two jobs is best. As rrb clerk is in SBI sponsored bank. in future govt holding in PSB is going to transferr. so our mark as a public sector employee may lost. what are the chances of implementation of nachiketh more committee recommendations..please help as I got job with your guidance.. I am from village background so not able to decide by myself both scores in IBPS is 130

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You have only applied for APGVB Clerk if you get selected then you can move there.If not stay with Corporation bank.Banking is core industry so Government will have control over the public sector banks.Corporation bank is good enough bank so be happy.

    Hello Mam.. please must reply I am soo very tensed! :'(
    I have provisionally allotted in Indian Overseas bank and unfortunately I did not know before the exam that candidate has to submit KBC Certificate in IBPS prescribed format
    Hence I had given OBC certi in state gvt format at the time of interview
    I later on came to know about IBPS prescribed format and I thought I would not get allotted because of this but I did..

    Now I know that Banks do check all the documents that Candidates provided and then further send offer letter

    Now I am in extreme tension whether I will get offer letter or not ?? Will I able to join the bank??

    Please please if you can suggest me anything Please :'(

    Will they contact my company too for verification of character and all….as when i left my company i gave them a reason of being sick….so i do not know what my company people will tell bank about me,,,will their answer matter too much for bank……

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Background verification may take place and usually verifies whether you have stated everything correctly or not (experience and other behavioral aspects). But leaving company reason will not be an issue.

    Hi Mam,

    IBPS clerk III results were declared yesterday. West Bengal cut off for allotment 64 and for reserve list 63.4 . Unfortunately, i got 63.2. They have mentioned that people not selected or not in reserve list would not be considered further for any proceedings.

    I just want to know is there any chances of being selected as technically i didnt fail. What if reserve list for 10 percent is exhausted or vacancies are higher ? In that case will they cosnider us ? Please do let know.

      aap soft copy mail kar sakte hai aur allotment ke waqt apne paas rakh sakte hai..sabhi se ye form fill karaya jata hai agar aap ke paas koi document nahi hai

  265. vinay kumar

    mam i have already described you complete picture my interview in my previous post ,do i have chance of getting through.do i get selected…

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      I replied you on Facebook.But just to post here.You have missed some basic questions but answers banking one.Since this is competitive exam and selection depends on performance of other candidates you are in consideration of getting job.

  266. yogita

    thanks madam. i think apart from that everything went well. yes they asked me can i read kannada newspaper. i said no but i am in the process of learning and it will take some time. but i can frame small sentences as i have already started learning kannada. and told that i bought my kannada spoken book also. then they asked me to say one line in kannada. i said but with a little mistake. (instead of my… i used I in kannada). they corrected me. i said sorry and promise them to learn as soon as possible.

  267. yogita

    hello madam,
    i gave my interview in bangalore. it was simple. but due to one reason i am little worry. since i have only basic knowledge of kannada so i was giving my interview in English. one member of the panel asked me something in Hindi and i replied in English. i knew that answer should be given in that language only in which question is asked. but since i was in south so i replied in English. and after that he became angry and asked do u know Hindi? why are replying in English. i am north indian. i was shocked and said sorry sir then spoke in Hindi that i know Hindi. then he said its ok. did it create negative image of mine? will they reject me? my marks is 109. cut off is 63.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      This is one little mistake but it also depends on interviewer how he takes it.Overall if everything went well in interview then there is no reason they will reject for this one mistake

  268. dharmesh

    i have done interviwe 11 feb in gujrat but my interviwe was not good my score is 68 & cutt of 47 for ST.my qlifiction is b.com & m.com.if any chace for job i am very bad filling that…so my chace….mam plz tell me.

    Questions they asked

    2)What is Inflation? A) The situation where production is less than demand is called infaltion.

    3)Difference between SBI & other banks? i started saying that A) SBI is the largest bank in india with number of branches and one of the oldest among all the banks,earlier it was know as imperial bank of india before RBI came into existance.(they were not satisfied with my answer).

    4) Head quarters of SBI and Imperial bank of India..A) SBI HQ is in Mumbai..Imperial bank of india (With doubt fully i said Mumbai).

    5)Capital of Uttharkhand and frm where it has separated? A) Capital is Deharadun, but i couldn’t answer frm where it has been separated.

    6)Who controls Stock exchange? I couldn’t answer this question.

    7) Role of banking in indian economics? A)It controls inflation,circulates money,generates income from Interest rates,provides loans.

    This is how interview went on and every thing was in my local language(Telugu).

    Madam,can u please judge my performance and please tell me weather i have any opportunity of getting into clerical or not.

    Please mam consider my request.
