IBPS Clerk 2021 Exam Put On Hold By The Finance Ministry

Recently, IBPS issued an advertisement for holding an examination for recruitment in the clerical cadre of PSBs only in two languages–English and Hindi, despite the fact that 22 languages were recognized by the Constitution of India. The news report cites a statement made by the Union Finance Minister in 2019 when she had assured holding banking exams in local languages.

In the above context, it may be clarified that the Finance Minister’s statement referred to above was made in the context of Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) only. With a view to providing a level playing field to the local youths for availing employment opportunities, the Government in 2019 decided that for recruitment of Office Assistant and Officer Scale I in RRBs, the examination will be held in 13 regional languages including Konakani and Kannada, besides Hindi and English. Since then, examinations for these recruitments are being conducted in regional languages also.

In order to look into the demand for holding examination for clerical cadre in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) in local/regional languages, a Committee has been constituted to look into the matter in its entirety. The Committee will give its recommendations within 15 days. The ongoing process of holding the examination initiated by IBPS will be kept on hold until the recommendations of the Committee are made available.
