    1. My sister is has passed out this program and now with BOB...I dont see any problem...ONly thing is thr is a loan...but who minds if you a get a job and a post graduation as well...

    2. Sujith Sinha4 May 2013 14:35

      No my brother did the same program and he had lot of pressures on him becoz of that he will come at 12 am midnights sometimes. plz dont go for this. this is different from IBPS selection. the candidate who got selected from IBPS(as they come through genuine selection) will get less work as they will dominate there at banks. this is true.

    3. sujith you are talkin u can judge whether ibps or bob is genuine....grow up man..

  2. Y u say not to go for this job.

  3. bcoz u will be bonded for 7 years and in future if u desire for ssc cgl kind of jpb then u have to shelve the bond amount.....if u have not other plans in mind and u cannot crack sbi po or ibps po then go for it.

    1. I think you are not going for a Bank Job (PSU) for a shorter duration...I dont mind serving a bond if its BOB...also one break the Bond by paying the loan amount back to bank..SSC CGL is worth that...

    2. yeah.....but 9 months of training where u get only 2500 per month busy with 8hours of classes and then e learnings......then cracking ssc cgl would become a Herculean task. rather prepare for sbi po and ibps po3 where you will get the same job without bond. whereas these banks have followed this Icici bank model only for employee retention.

  4. ye bakwas hai
    ismein tumhe 3 lac ka loan lena parega
    fir 1 saal ki study hogi
    fir loan chukate rho
    + 3-5 saal ka bond bhi hoga :(

  5. govt job me bond hota h kya ??

    1. mostly hota hai/par kisi mein nahi bhi hota.

    2. advt check karni chahiye. Ye que Kisise puchne nahi chahiye.

  6. very diffult question last time....

  7. haan bob psu hai
    inhone bond rkha hua hai
    meri sister select hui hai
    usse 5 saal ka bond bharna pra
    + 3.5 lac ka loan bhi liya bob se
    fir manipal university se 1 saal ki pgdm ki

  8. 550 rupee fees hai bhai croro ka business karoga BOB is form se ....

  9. 3.5 lacs fees he kya course ki ?
    and yeloanjabardasti leni padti he
    plz mujhe sub details bataiye

  10. hi
    this is to much yaar 200 rs thik hai ..

  11. don't be serious about this...nd its all about business of plunder..

  12. Only those candidates who are sure that they can not crack IBPS PO in september, go for it, bt if you can, don't go for it, this will be one of your most foolish steps .

  13. If I plan to appear for IBPS III then anyways I will be placed next year..As exam has not yet been announced...and If somebody is just a graduate or even if he/she is in final year then this is a best option...

  14. Sanjeev Trivedi4 May 2013 14:22

    are koi fayda nhi aisi naukri krke....yr bilkul bekar hai yha job krna sale private me dimag khrab ho jata hai ..mere friend ne to join krke 7 mnth me hi chod diya...sala pressure bhot hota hai....

  15. dear friends ............
    they will do much work with us,compare to ibps selected students.they want to maximise their profits with us........never go for that.

  16. very high fees. Waste of time. Sir when will ibps issue ibps clerk allotment list. I m very tens.

  17. It is more worthful to do mba from any premier institute as one can get placed anywhere with more handsome package!!!!!!!!

  18. wat d hell is goin here wat types of commnts u guys posted here if u r intrstd in bank(psu) job first give tht BOB...exam..aftr tht speak abt d trm n cndtn rltd to d job wthout qualify a exam wthout giving a exam u guys talking lyk a nonsense tht so weird....ibps-po3 n sbi-po.clerk sbi associate n ssc exams r waited to come so first u hav a chance to give a exm wthout a ibps manner aftr tht tlk abt anythng..ths is ridiculous tlk wth no explaination....weird...

    1. if u appear for exam and qualify then u would be in a dilemma whether to join or not and finally u have to join if unemployed not knowing the future appear only if u wish to join.
      i joined icici po similarly in 2009. but was lucky enough to crack sbi po and get
      out of icici.

  19. it seems that ibps planning to introduce percentage eligibility (like 55-60
    %) to appear in exam. So, if somebody doesn't falls into this criteria then go for bob PO /

  20. What do we mean by General awareness? Is it Current affairs or Static Gk or both?? please clarify this.......

  21. bhai logo baise dekha jaye to PSU bank ko khud ki recruitment ki permission nehi dena chaiye ..lekin borada manipal school of banking ka jo scheme nikla hey is me to ultimate loss IBPS ki candidate ko hi hota hai to INDIAN BANKING ASSOCIATION ko iss pe rok laga na chaiye ...

  22. plz meri prblm solve kijiye...BIS ka form kisine fill up kiya hai kya?

  23. hey imprtant for every one ..... i want to share some information about this..... this not a good step to apply for these posts. all the posts mostly of them have been fixed in advance ... and this is only loss to you. there is bond and bank will pay you only 2500 / month ... the ibps PO 3 is far better .... and there are many complications behind this posts.. if you joined there is no assurance that you get a govt .. job ... and parde ke piche bohot kuch hai..... apply na kro is posts k lye ...po 3 aa rha h uski tyai kro september of luck...

  24. ya robin u r right mera ek frnd h uska ho gya hai... pichle batch me lkin... wo wha stuck ho gya hai ........... ibps po 2 me b ho gya tha lkin wo wha se bhar nhi aa paya....... so ibps po 3 ki tyri kro bs...... isme paise khrach krne se acha to....

  25. Guys I read all your comments and I see that lot of you are condemning the positions offered by BOB...I personally feel that considering so much competition around.. I feel this is not a Bad Option...and BOB being considered as one of the top 3 banks I see no problem in doing this course...Anyways the course will be over by next June/July 2014...and IBPS PO III joining will also be filled around that time so this can definately be considered as an option..Even if it is a Bond,,,thn serving bond with BOB should not be a problem..We can not compare this with similar problem with ICICI or Axis Bank....
    I only see positive:

    1. We dont need to prepare anything our bid to prepare for IBPS PO III will take care of this exam.

    2. Although Age limit is less (26 years) but the Final year students or those who have extremely less marks can also apply...

    3. Good option to do 1 year higher PG prog as suited by Banks..fees for this Course is Rs. 3.15/- lakhs (all inclusive of boarding, Lodging and course fees, other fees, etc.) at a highly concessional Interest rate of 8% only. No other costs...Today if you are doing MBA from any reputed B School this is minimum you are paying and that to without any job guarantee...Here I am getting a PSU Job in one the best bank.

    4. Earn while you Learn (Stipends): A stipend amount will be paid to the students during the entire duration of the one year course.
    Rs. 2,500/- p.m. during the nine months Campus period, and Rs. 10,000/- p.m. during the internship period.

    5. Lot of people are talking about Loan amout..Guys they are kind of giving Bonus to you if you serve for 5 yars. The entire loan amount will get paid back to you....and additional 1 lac if you are thr for 7 years....

    6. Few Clarification Service bond is not of 5 years or 7 years it is 2 years. And if somebody is leaving bank after 2nd year the amount of loan needs to be paid back which I think is Normal for a bank to ask for. Problem occurs if somebody leaves the bank within 2 years..Total cost of leaving would become around 5 Lacs...including stipened which they paid and cost of giving you training and also loan amount...

    6. Go through the entire prog details.... it excellent...

    Rest I know I am increasing my competition by giving this insight into the program...But I feel as noone should get misled by misleading comments...

    Thanks and all the best

    1. Great...Thanks for clarifiying...

    2. abe q logo ka pagal bna rha h lgta h tu.... bob walo me se hai soch rha hai or log b fase.......

    3. prabhu plz... dont misguide people... this prog sucks.. ppl joining it will become lifeless...

    4. thanks,for information but i have one doubt i read full condition carefully for exam patten but they don't mansion negative,pls give the informatin


  27. all of you guys get the hell outta here........from bankersadda........

  28. It is a good program dont afraid of this

  29. bhai muje koi batayegaa ki bank ki tayari ke saath saath aur bhi yatari jaise ki LIC AAO aur PATWARI yaa phir CGL EXAM ki tayari karna sahi rahegaa ki nahi....pls acche se soch ke batayee ye kisi ke career kaa sabal hai bhai....?

  30. The above mentioned opportunity is cool but I have not 3.15 lac to pay I already have some previous loan to pay. Candidates who can afford, must go for this as it ensures 100% job after only one year diploma. No hassles at all what say...

  31. lots of spam happening around.....can any of the student pursuing this course or those who have completed give a clearer picture abt this course as well as life after joining BOB after this course....Thnks in advance.....!!!!

  32. I'm final year student, so what should i fill in the qualification of this form? Please help me...

  33. Guys, I have mailed at

    All u r requested to send the same to IBPS.
    Dear Sir,
    I want to know from you that the Nationalized Banks which comes under the control of IBPS for recruitment purpose,
    Are they authorized to recruit individually?
    This is a BIG QUESTION and I am asking on behalf of all those students who are qualified in IBPS P.O 2 session 2013
    and waiting for any further vacancies. I am one of them.
    Because, Recently “Bank of Baroda” is recruiting for P.O 2013 with 300 vacancies for the post of P.O but in a way to
    take exam, then all the qualified students will have to do a 1 year course in Banking and Finance and after completion, all
    those will become P.O in the same Bank.
    I am asking IS IT A JOKE?
    If “BANK OF BARODA” is having 300 post vacant for PO then why they are not hiring from your wait listed candidate
    IBPS P.O MT 2 / 2013.
    Just to Earn Money Bank is making Fool of us and forcing us to do a course for 1 more Year paying 3.15 Lakh.
    As per my knowledge, Bank of Baroda comes under IBPS for recruitment of P.O.
    Sir, If one Bank succeed in hiring the candidates in this way, then all other banks will follow them and our future
    will be ruined. And there will be no mean of giving and qualifying IBPS Exams furher.
    Some of us are communicating to go through RTI(Right to information ACT) or CIC (Central Information Commission)
    to file a complain against this.
    Please Suggest some measures that we can take against this injustice.
    Sir, This is totally injustice with all waiting candidates already qualified in IBPS PO 2.
    Sir, I request you to please take some necessary action as soon as possible for our better future.

    Your’s Faithfully

    and reply me if u have mailed at
    thanx. i am also filing RTI on this matter. any body wants help then contact me at my mail given above.

  34. guys dont read the negative comments... ye sala ek hi ladka hai jo bar bar keh raha hai ki mat join karo. so that competition kam ho jayega... sala corrupted mind. i will suggest you to come forward and study hard and do join this course, chutiye logo ki mat suno.
