What is IBPS Clerk?

IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) annually administers the IBPS Clerk exam. It is the governing body in charge of recruiting fresh staff for India’s public sector banks.

Each year, the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) conducts a Common Recruitment Process (CRP) for positions in the Clerical Cadre at 11 Public Sector Banks. In India, public sector banks are a significant category of government-owned institutions, with the Indian government’s ministry of finance or one of the state governments’ ministries of finance holding the majority of the bank’s shares.

Candidates for the IBPS Clerk position are chosen based on how well they perform in the two-part online exam. The IBPS banking exams will be administered in two stages: the preliminary exam comes first, followed by the mains exam. Thus, those who pass both of these exams are chosen for the position. 

IBPS Clerk Exam Medium

The IBPS Clerk Preliminary and Main Examinations will now be offered in 13 regional languages in addition to English and Hindi.
