The State Bank of India (SBI) seems to be testing patience of candidates who took it’s clerk mains exam 2016 by prolonging the declaration results and not notifying anything about it either. There is a lot going on right now at SBI’s career portal from PO recruitment coming to an end to the announcement of recruitment for Specialist officers, but nothing has been said about SBI clerk mains result 2016. Candidates have been in a whirlwind with the delay affecting areas of their career.
The examinations were held on June 25 and June 26 and some 3.5 lakh candidates had appeared after qualifying the prelims round. The recruitment that is underway is for selecting 18,000+ candidates on the posts of Junior Associates (JA) and Junior Agricultural Associates (JAA). Apparently, Centre’s order has removed the selection criteria of interview in clerical cadre posts but there has been rumors going around since many weeks whether or not SBI will hold the interviews. The chances of interviews are less likely since IBPS has removed it from clerical cadre recruitment process and it would be hard for SBI to get Centre’s approval for holding the same.
Many of the candidates who are awaiting SBI clerk 2016 result of mains exam, have also been participants of bank’s probationary officer recruitment and may have qualified or not. Also, most of them would also be appearing for IBPS’s PO and clerk exams. The issue over delay in results has put candidates in a fix where they don’t know if to focus on the next exams or not. The harder part is that they have already given too much time and thinking over SBI clerk by qualifying the prelims and then preparing for and taking the mains exam. So, it SBI doesn’t release the results real soon, it’s going to be even harder on the candidates.
The bank has failed to provide any update to the anxious aspirants since four weeks. Candidates feel that SBI has sidelined the clerk recruitment since it is moving on with other exams and is not even acknowledging the issue. Now, the candidates have even took the issue to social media and not to mention to flood CRPD’s office with calls everyday. The point is that even SBI’s CRPD couldn’t provide any detail or confirmation as to when the SBI clerk mains result will be declared, when Examswatch staff called them yesterday.
Candidates should keep a tab on sbi.co.in for any notification that SBI may release anyday now.
