This was followed by document verification. Done without any hassle since all my documents were in order.
After that I was taken to the place where the interviews were going on. My turn came after 15 mins.
3M and 1F (1 male had gone out. he came back when my interview was done)
Wished them and the head of the panel asked me to take a seat.
F1: So you did your schooling from St Francis College?
Me: Yes ma’am.
F1: What did you do after school?
Me: Ma’am I have done my bachelor in arts in English and Economics (actually i have a 3 year gap because I went to do engineering but I wasn’t able to complete it. I had a feeling that she wanted me to say that but I didn’t because there is no point saying things that are not being asked)
F1: Why do You want join banking sector?
Me: Bank offers tremendous growth opportunities and it is a respectable profession in India. Also it is a secure job.
F1: Ok so you’re looking for career growth?
Me: yes ma’am.
F1: What will be your profile and what will u do while working in the bank? told
F1: let’s say that a new rrb branch is about to come up in a village. then how will u inform people about it and get customer?
Me: ma’am i would set up an ultra small branch and take the help of influential villagers like the panchayat members and others so as to tell the people that saving their money with bank is a better option rather than converting their money in gold assets and taking the help of moneylenders who charge high rate of interest. I would tell them that I’m there to help them and they can get better profit by investing their surplus money with a bank.
F1: Ok so what’s the head of the panchayat called?
Me: sarpanch. they’re very influential and people listen to them. also Sarpanch nowadays are educated and liberal and they know that the govt and banks are there to help them out.
F1: ok so now we will talk in Hindi also.
Me: sure ma’am
M1: so u did economics ?
Me: yes sir
M1: ok so tell me what is gdp. told properly
Me: tell me the gdp base year and current growth rate of gdp. i was a lil confused about the exact figure so i said “sorry sir i don’t know”
M1: ok tell me how are banks helping the country.
then they asked me to go
Before going i told the head that i had met him once before in ibps clerk interview.
I maintained eye contact throughout and i wasn’t nervous at all( previously gave IBPS clerk and SBI PO interview)
i just forgot to smile all the time. i did smile at regular intervals though.
I found it quite easy. I might be wrong but the panel looked tired also.
III) IBPS RRB PO:
VENUE: PNB IIT ,gomti nagar,lucknow.
PANEL MEMBERS: 1F +4M.
I reached the venue at 7 am…thinking that I would be the first one to reach but there were already many candidates present there..and all of them in perfect corporate looks..amazing a sight!!!
Then they let us enter the institute at 8 am.By 9 am I was done with biometrics.They made us write our own name in both English and Hindi and also a number in words (eg.teen hazaar chaar so(3400) ) in same languages.No paragraph ,no newspaper sort of writing.After this,documents were checked and i was nervous because i was not having my final year mark sheet but a colg certified internet copy of mark sheet. Mam who was checking my documents asked me to give my pass certificate but i never knew that pass certificate of both 10th and 12 th was required..So I have not brought them.but incidentally i found my 10 th pass certificate and presented to her..By that time I was nervous,very nervous and somehow i don’t know what happened i started crying a bit..mam comforted me saying…beta koi baat nahi pass certificate nahi hai toh..it’s not that much required.but i realised that the outburst was because of the interview pressure and then i was relieved and feeling light and enthusiastic.
