Guidelines on reservation policy, various guidelines issued by Govt. of India/Others from time to time, administrative exigency, etc. Vacancies given in this adverti sement are indicative. Provisional allotment shall be done on the basis of final vacancies to be reported by the Participating Organizations. Candidates should not claim indicative vacancies as final for provisional allotment. No change in the data already registered by the candidate in the online application form is possible. A candidate belonging to SC/ST/OBC category, who is selected on the same standard as applied to General category candidates will be treated as own merit candidates. Department of Personnel and Training vide O.M. No. 36011/1/98-Estt. (Res) dated 1-7-1998 clarifies that only such SC/ST/OBC candidates who are selected on the same standard as applied to general candidates shall not be adjusted against reserved vacancies. In other words, when a relaxed standard is applied in selecting an SC/ST/OBC candidate, for example in the age limit, experience qualification, permitted number of chances in examination, extended zone of consideration larger than what is provided for general category candidates etc., the SC/ST/OBC candidates are to be counted against reserved vacancies. Such candidates would be deemed as unavailable for consideration against unreserved vacancies. Own merit candidates of reserved category will be adjusted against the vacancies of unreserved category and will be given provisional allotment first treating them notionally as reserved category candidates as per their preference of participating organisations. Please note that such a candidate will not be adjusted against a reserved post. However his/her provisional allotment to an Organisation shall be done by treating him/her as if he/she is a reserved category candidate.
Merely securing combined scores higher than the last allotted unreserved category candidate does not entitle a reserved category candidate for provisional allotment under unreserved category. Even though the candidate had not availed any relaxation applicable for reserved category, such candidate will be required to obtain a minimum score in each test and a minimum total score prescribed for unreserved category candidate for the online test and combined score higher than last allotted unreserved category candidate.
In the event of two or more candidates having obtained the same score, merit order is decided as per date of birth (the candidate senior in age is placed before/ above the candidate junior in age), as per the prevailing practice.
The provisional allotment is subject to the candidate fulfilling the criteria for Participating Organisation and identity verification to the satisfaction of the allotted organisation. This does not constitute an offer of employment. In case it is detected at any stage of the recruitment process that, the candidate does not satisfy the eligibility criteria his/her candidature/ chance in the process shall stand forfeited.
As the provisional allotment will be made to participating organisations on merit cum preference basis, once the provisional allotment is made, no request for change shall be entertained. Any request for change shall result in cancellation of candidature. Further, a candidate who is provisionally allotted will forfeit his/her candidature/ chance for the process if he/she does not avail the offer of appointment from the Participating Organisation.
Issuance of offer of appointment including terms and conditions, formalities for verification, joining etc. is solely the decision of the Participating Organisations and shall be final and binding. IBPS shall have no role therein. Any queries in this regard shall be directed to the participating organisations only. A reserve list to the extent of approximately 10 percent of the vacancies under each category may be kept, subject to the availability of candidates. This does not guarantee provisional allotment to/recruitment by the Participating Organisation(s)/ other financial organisations. In the event of Participating Organisations/ other financial organisations providing further vacancies during April 2016-March 2017, provisional allotment will be carried out for the candidates from the reserve list. However, if no vacancy is furnished by the Participating Organisations owing to exigencies or otherwise during the validity period, the candidates under the reserve list will not be considered for provisional allotment. The reserve list will expire automatically on 31.03.2018 without any notice. Candidates who are not provisionally allotted or not in the reserve list will not be considered for any further process under CWE PO/MT-VI for vacancies for 2017-18.
The decision of IBPS in provisional allotment of Organisations shall be final and binding upon the selected candidates. However IBPS reserves the right to cancel, reallot Organisation-wise allocation/ change the process depending upon exigencies or otherwise.
