Now that the results of the IBPS CWE Clerks has been declared and score cards are being sent to the qualified candidates, most of them would be wondering specially the candidates who feel they have scored a little less, if they would end up getting any calls from the Banks.
Well, I would like to tell them, YES !
Unlike the Probationary Officers Recruitment, which is done on India basis, the Clerical Recruitment is done on State basis. That is to say candidates compete with the candidates of the same state. (Most likely)
Now let' say the Punjab National Bank comes out with 2000 Clerical Vacancies. These vacancies are then distributed among the different states wherever there are requirements of the Clerks in PNB.
Since, we know that PNB is headquartered in Delhi and has many branches in North India, the Clerical Vacancies will be much higher in Northern States particularly in Delhi, Punjab, etc than in states like AP, Karnataka, etc. (Hypothesis)
Say in Delhi circle, there are 500 vacancies and in Karnataka there are 100 vacancies. Now when qualified candidates of CWE Clerks from Delhi and Karnataka apply to PNB, then it is most likely that a Candidate from Delhi with a score of 150 (assume) getting the call while a candidate with a score of 170 from Karnataka not able to get the call since the vacancies in Karnataka are only 100 compared to 500 in Delhi.
This was more prevalent when Banks used to conduct individual exams for recruitment. And they used to filter candidates from the center of exam (State) they have appeared.
Now let's see how Bank's are going to call the Candidates. Maybe they will accept the center from where the candidate has appeared for the CWE as Circle for recruitment.
For the record, the SBI clearly mentions about this in the recruitment notifications:
"Merit list will be drawn up State-wise, Category-wise and candidates will be posted in the State from where he/she is appearing for the written test and will not be entitled for inter/intra-state transfer in the first 10 years of service."
