IBPS PO EXAM 2021, Eligibility, Dates, Exam Pattern, Syllabus, Salary, Application Fee, and Form Filling Process


This year it has been a tough ride with job cuts, industry shutdown, pay scale reduction, stress of work from home due to the global pandemic of Covid19.

But, there has been one sector which more or less kept working and was least affected by it which is the Indian Banking Sector. Banks were still open during the 3 months lockdown through which the country went and the workers kept on putting their work ensuring a smooth operation of finances.

Unfortunately a sizeable number of Bank Officials fell prey to the virus too. Some came out of it, some succumbed but the Indian Banking Sector ran smoothly. Ensuring that the common man didn’t had to suffer in this pandemic.

That’s why in India the role and place of Banking are very important. And to make it going “Institute of Banking Personnel Selection” holds the exam for Probationary Officers (PO) and many other posts.

Like every year this time also the exams for PO were held and next year’s notification for 2021 has also come out and we at Stoodnt.com are there to put every possible information out there for your convenience.
