The drastic PHAILIN has affected Odisha severely and severe flood thereafter, so people are not even able to escape from the flood as it surrounded them. How the candidates will be able to cast their IBPS PO-III exam in the 19th and 20th of October.
So very kindly requested to IBPS to reschedule the first two dates.

horrified “
2 What a waste of my tax money”, I thought, walking past the people having free Californian Chardonnay.

Commenting through an anonymous ID, and thinking yourself a King, create your own blog buddy, don't spoil the public discussion forum. You are a weak guy & here for gaining sympathy. But you have forgotten one thing, discussion forum is not of IBPS, it is owned by Bankers Adda. OK.
