IBPS Specialist Officers Eligibility Issues

Published on Saturday, March 08, 2014
Many readers are asking repeated questions regarding eligibility for IBPS SO posts. As usual IBPS notification is vague and don't answer every questions.

Here are answers to some common queries 

1) Dual Specialization

It is clearly mentioned the official notification that candidates need to prove their major specialization at the time of interview. In case of dual specialization, IBPS haven't clarified it's stand. In traditional universities like PU and PAU, there is a major and a minor specialization for every degree. In my opinion IBPS can't reject candidates with dual specialization degrees. In case IBPS reject all the
candidates with dual specializations, then it will face legal consequences. IBPS have learnt a lesson after IBPS PO II protest, so they won't reject dual specialization candidates.

2) Related Specialization

Many candidates applied for SO although their specialization of degrees were not mentioned in official notification. For example - Many candidates holding "Dairy Farming" degrees applied for agricultural officer posts. Diary farming is highly related to food technology which is mentioned in official notification. In case you are facing such problems then you need a clarification letter signed by VC or Superintendent of your university stating that both these degrees are highly related. 

3) Mistakenly filled Minority religion

As there is no reservation for minority communities, if you filled your community as Muslim, Sikh or any other minority community, then you need not to worry., It won't impact your candidature, you can edit it at the time of interview.

4) Mistakenly filled reserved category

If you belong to General category and you mistakenly filled your category as a reserved category. Then your candidature is void-ab-initio. You will not be allowed to edit your category at all.
