    1. Most importantly… Thank you Mrunal bhai and all others who posted their experiences. It really helped a lot. Wouldn’t have been possible without you guys!!! Thanks once again!!

      1. Got selected into Syndicate bank as PO.
        Thanks sir

      2. there is a group of po4 syndicate bank selected candidates over pagal guy . u r welcome to join that

        1. I joined. Thanks :-)

        2. Could you please post the link of the group (specific to our purpose)?

    2. your contact details?

  3. thanks a lotttt mrunal sir and everyone who helped me to get through, got selected ( ibps po )in indian overseas bank.:-)

  4. Got IDBI… any ideas when they call fr joining??

  5. mrunal sir n team thank you a lot… i am allotted Bank of india via ibps po 4

    1. Hello miss
      i’ve too allotted boi

  6. Got canara bank…….i got 54 marks bt didnt get pnb or bob ….. Anyway anyone who too got canara bank?

  7. Thanks mrunal sir….selected as canara bank po…….but in dilemma whether to join or not…..Didn’t clear upsc prelims even once ….wrote twice……..This will be my third attempt…..will there be time to prepare for civils after joining the bank or even at the time of training….if anyone knows plse reply….Also writing ssc cgl tier 2 this time which is also my second time writing tier 2…..so hoping for some suggestions……

    1. it will be very very dificult to prepare if you join…but you should join as a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush…otherwise who knows..you may not get in either.

      1. rightly said………

    2. Same dilemma. My question is whether we can breach the service bond before probation period ? I have always been unclear about the legality aspects of service bonds in India. Can someone pls enlighten me.

      I plan to join Canara. Appear SSC & UPSC. Then I will wait till final allocations of SSC atleast. Breach bond and join & then try UPSC. I have left job once and believe me it’s not easy being unemployed for like forever. Even for you turning down a job offer at such a point of time in your youth life won’t be called a very good choice.


      1. You may resign and pay the bond amount even in the probation period and it is absolutely legal.

      2. Same here .. left job an year back (being unemployed is not at all easy).. age 26 .. this would be my first civil prelims … and preparations have not yet reached the level as required ,so in dilemma if i should join or wait to give my first prelims and take some more months to prepare and accordingly able to assess myself better in the UPSC race ….nyways Got allotted to Syndicate bank & can someone guide here for the steps to be followed now as far as this recruitment is concerned ???

        1. When its UPSC dont care about the level you are at. It wont ever be enough. Just give it your best shot. Best of luck..

      3. Yes, you can leave the bank in probation period by giving notice period (normally one month) and the bond amount.

      4. In Canara Bank bond amount is Rs 25000. Which is much lesser than any other bank. If u want to quit job U need to give 3 months notice period.otherwise u have to pay 3 months salary if u want quit immediately. Bank job is more hectic and tedious. Everyday u have to stretch up to 8 in night.sometimes work in Sundays also.Everything depends on ur posting place and ur manager.

        1. Thank you prakash for the details regarding bond. This sounds to be very less as compared with other banks. Usual bond amount is 2lac for most banks. I have a doubt there.. If bond amount is 25k why would someone pay three month salary?

          Regarding the work i believe that it depends on the person also. Some people are always there in every organization who dont care about the job or the manager.. ;-)

        2. what if one joins a bank as a clerk instead of P.O. stratigically and begins I A S preparation seriously.Will it be possible then?PLEASE throw some light on it . You seem to have good knowledge about banking work.

    3. same situation with me, got pnb and writing CGL tier 2 and going to appear upsc, i heard that it is difficult to prepare for exams while working in bank…can we take extension for joining..guys please throw some light on this..

      1. Hi, i asked for extension to join IDBI bank in last year, they have not replied at that time, but surprisingly during my mains preparation, I got mail & letter from them that to join IDBI in 2nd batch…due to UPSC mains exam, I did not join it…but my another friend who also wrote mains, later joined SBI as PO was telling that its hectic schedule & wont get any time for the preparation of exams (UPSC & SSC)…SSC is better job than bank PO, try to write SSC tier 2 exam very seriously (im also writing, but I got very less marks in tier 1, so dont have hope)…if you dont mind,may I know how much you got in tier-1

        1. thanks VK for sharing your views, i agree that ssc is better job than PO, i am in the dilemma
          whether to join pnb or not , i got 105 in tier1 and iam hopeful of getting something through cgl 2014. but my friends says that i should not leave bank like pnb.. i do think that upsc cannot be cleared while working in bank as po.

    4. Hi if u r dreaming for civil services,do not join Bank. I am working in Bank its impossible to get time

      1. 100% correct & I agree you, If you have interest in doing civil service, dont join bank job…try for it sincerely…moreover you wont get any time for preparation

      2. Prakash , what if one joins as a clerk instead of P.O. Will it possible to get time for studying for I.C.S.

      3. what are the working hours of a bank kindly specify

    5. Hi Rajiv…dont worry, in UPSC civil service exam, Prelims is the toughest stage I believe…I cleared it in my 3rd attempt (my other four friends also cleared it in their 3rd attempt) & quite confident that I will get interview call, so dont worry, but before joining bank job think twice, SSC is much better & if you get place in central secretariat, only 5 days work, very good chance to prepare for CSE…for this reason I turned down the offer of IDBI bank…best wishes

      1. i agree with you completely, but since upsc is time consuming and expensive exam , you better need some good pay job in hand (most preferably via ssc- CS ,ED).so i think one should secure job via ssc for job as well as financial security..and continue preparing for CSE. but in my case i got pnb and it is hard to leave such bank and iam thinking about it…your views.

        1. Hi sumit, if you want to aim for high, you have to take some risks..more risk, more benefit, I turned down the offer of IDBI bank PO, which did not have any bond regulations, but I do not regret for that…last time i wrote SSC tier 2 also, missed final selection narrowly by 3 marks…dont worry you got good marks in Tier-1, write SSC tier-2 as good as possible…if you got selected through SSC then leave your bank job & immediately start preparing for UPSC…with one-two years of serious preparation, UPSC exam can be cracked by anyone…its my personal view that bank job is not suitable when you want to prepare for Civil services…best wishes

          1. thanks vk, i also think on the same line…and that is my plan..best wishes to you.

      2. Hi vk… Actually I got IDBI this tym… Nd I do want to make my career in banking… Can u pls tell me when do the call the frst batch for training.. I mean approximate timeframe…

        1. First you should undergo medical exam(you will get reimbursement once you join the bank) & document verification…I underwent it in Apollo hospital of Chennai, later you will get appointment order through both post & mail…I got joining date on August 18 in Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Banking & Finance in Hyderabad…it will take approximately 2-3 months…IDBI is good bank & 2nd highest salary after SBI…good luck

          1. Thnx brthr.. :-) I hope medical xaminations isnt too deep nd elaborate unlike we hv in armed forces jobs…?? Nd one more yr.. Do they keep originsl docs with them for verification?? Its just dat I want to be sure once dat I am FINALLY selected(enough of this provisional thing ;-) )..so dat I can prepare fr jaiiib etc. next…

        2. No medical examinations is just for formality…some 6-7 tests are there (for around 1000 rupees)…& all are normal tests like BP/Sugar/eye/hearing etc…more importantly they wont keep our mark sheets with them, they just verify & give you back

          1. Thnx buddy… :-)

          2. hey vk bro,
            kindly reply my query

            i’ve got boi (bank of india), i have a physical deficiency in left hand but less than 40% (only 16% deficiency), so i do not avail any sort of quota, i got recruitment under general category itself

            will there would be any problem during medical examination regarding my physical deficiency
            what should i do ??

            Please reply soon, thanks in advance bro.

          3. Hi vk….I have hearing problem ….i cannot hear almost 95% of my right ear and my left ear is normal and healthy…..will it create any problem?

          4. sir plz tell joining date of PNB clerk ??

      3. Thanks VK for your encouraging words.

        1. you should be fit as permost civilian jobs medical guidelines…if there is any problem you should file a writ in high court against the employer…either they should take you as a normal candidate, if not then you should get resevation benefit under Persons with disabilities Act..in either case you win.

        2. If employers deny you employment on this ground it is a violation of your fundamental rights under A.14 and 16 of the constitution, courts will definitely give you justice, don’t worry and don’t go down without a fight if it comes to that.

      4. Hi VK….I am also preparing for Civil Service Exams….please share your study plan for prelims….If possible, could you send me any PDF to my mail regarding the preparation of prelims…plz reply…

  9. Thanks a tonne to Mrunal Sir and his team who are working day and night to help others from low economic background or directionless people to understand the scenario of various stages and facets of life.
    Although we may never be able to congratulate face to face but i personally wish if there is any means to help your organisation to continue such quality work forever so as to continue this social service forever for GenX and implore other community memebrs to contribue in some way or the other …!!!

  10. Frnd plz clarify my doubt……

    I m jat by caste and my dob is 02 aug 1984. I was having obc certificate and applied for nabard in obc category as there was age relaxation of three years for obc. Having cleared both grade a and grade b phase 1, got call letter for phase 2. Now recently supreme court has scraped jat reservation. Though i m sure that i will be counted as general candidate for phase 2 result, but the doubt remains that m i even eligible or not because i m 31 years old.

    Sincere n quick replies are welcome.

    1. Don’t worry friend, you will have the benefit of reservation, SC says about it

    2. Hi Amit…could u tell me how much questions u attended in the prelims of NABARD…..and how was the paper….i mean difficulty level of paper..plz reply…

  11. This website helped a lot to succeed through the means of self study….Started Preparation in August 2014 and today I have been selected as a PO in PNB through IBPS and also got selected as an AO in UIIC.
    Thank you for providing such a valuable service to the students like us.

  12. selected as po in idbi
    please mention pros and cons of this bank??

    1. Me too got IDBI… Info I got frm my sources suggests d biggest pros are a very cooperative management regarding HR policies and a sort of corporate culture at even branch level… Cons doesnt seems to be much apart frm the fact that it isnt one of the biggest banks in indian banking sectr…

      1. cngrts pankaj… me too got idbi. u r frm which state???

    2. They are completely govt. owned. I have talked to them about this and they say it is a bit different than other PSBs which you realise only when you join it.
      Second, their approach is more like private sector banks. Remove that tag of govt. owned from their boards, everything about them will appear like private sector banks including the branch architecture, behavioral approach and aggressiveness to do business.
      They even hire groups of salesman to acquire new accounts and fixed deposits.

  13. Chaudhary bhai ….congratulations…..aapka written mein kya score tha…
    And interview mein

    1. Bhai overall 47.60 h… Intrw m 70 nd written m 84… Yr written m km reh gye kaafi…

      1. Koi na yaar…..ye to mila……aage job ke sath try krte rehna….agar kisi doosre bnk mein jana hai to……

        1. Bank to badhiya h yr.. No issues with dat..par prob h ye jat obc reservation waali… Coz I am selected under obc category..ab pta ni idbi waale bhi obc hi consider karenge ya nhi.. Bs isi baat ki prob h yr..

      2. chaudhary bhai , I also have 84 in written n 54 in interview n not selected

  14. Guys – Anybody got into Union Bank of India? Provide some information on that if you have any…

  15. Guys ..one social question…..would u mind if a Muslim boy and hindu girl marry with their own choice or vice what ….what would be ur reaction


      1. Even I had thought so in the same way .. …but on ground zero situation is so bad …I didn’t even imagine in a dream ..fundamental rights are crushed ….I think we need another 100 years to actually implement our constitution in spirit rather than in letter

        1. While studying Indian constitution we feel so much nicer because it’s the best in the world …but it’s implementation is just done by the courts when the provisions are violated

    2. Now Don’t start love jihad on MRunal s website!! Find out some other platform

      1. Bro …love jihad is just a political creation to put hatred among people …….Please think in a liberal way ..

        1. If I assume you are a Muslim boy, then i wound request you to include LIBERAL word in Islamic dictionary…. Never seen any Muslim girl marrying Hindu guy in general public… Neither your original question includes VICE -VERSA!!!

          1. I have no issues with u bro …problem is myself not in a right path .regarding Islamic teachings..and for the vice versa I would have left the choice with the individual ..no interference

        2. even getting married in the same hindu category is also difficult. have you ever given thought to it.

    3. If you have good job earning more than 30K per month no problem. If he is a cycle mechanic or some jobless fellow then it is a problem irrespective of any religion. So for that follow Mrunal tips/studyplans and study hard honestly and crack civil services

      1. thank you buddy …..but I feel even that is not possible in India …its easy only if we have millions of dollars ….otherwise for the others fundamental rights have to be sacrificed

    4. Bhai this website is meant only for preparation purpose if you have these type of social and personal problems just google ,you will find numerous website and blogs

      Kuchh to common sense lagaya karo ki kaun sa problem kahan pe post kiya jaaye

      Its my humble request to all ,please dont make this tupe of post

  16. thanq very much mrunal sir…alloted syndicate bank as po


  18. got Bank of India in Probationary officer . anyone got the same?

  19. If you have good job earning more than 30K per month no problem. If he is a cycle mechanic or some jobless fellow then it is a problem irrespective of any religion.
