IBPS is Going to conduct CWE for 82 RRBs across india for the post of  Officers (Scale-I, II & III) and Office Assistants (Multipurpose) in Regional Rural Banks. in Sep 2012

It should be noted that the CWE of IBPS will qualify candidates to become eligible for
recruitment. The ultimate recritment will be by each participating RRB who will
independently issue a separate recruitment notification, specifying vacancies and stipulating
the eligibility criteria, as desired by respective RRBs in terms of age, educational
qualification, proficiency in Official Language of the State/UT for which vacancy a
candidate wishes to apply, experience (if any), minimum required level of IBPS score in
each component test plus Total Weighted Standard Score etc.
Successful candidates in the CWE who have been issued scorecards and who meet with the
stipulated eligibility criteria will then be required to apply to any RRB they wish to, quoting
their registration no., roll no. etc. Each Regional Rural Bank will then individually shortlist
candidates and carry out their own selection processes Interviews etc. for final selection

A candidate can apply for the Post of Office Assistant (Multipurpose) and can also
apply for the Post of Officer. However a candidate can apply for only one post in
officer’s cadre i.e. for Officer Scale-I or Sclae-II or Scale-III.
Candidates have to apply separately and pay fees separately for each post.
