Para-jumble Asked :

UNTIL six months ago, no self-respecting financial consultant would travel without it: the bar chart showing that the marginal cost of Internet banking transactions was a tiny fraction of the cost of branch banking. It was the chart that launched dozens of stand-alone Internet banks. Unshackled from the cost of real property—and real people—Internet banks would, it was claimed, blow stuck-in-the-mud incumbents out of the water. However, as Roberta Arena, director in charge of the Internet forHSBC, a British banking giant, remarks wryly: “Easy to say; tough to do.”

Now Internet banks around the world are faltering. Part of the reason is that their physical rivals have become wiser, launching their own integrated “clicks ‘n bricks” strategies that offer customers electronic access as well as dark satanic branches. But they are not undisputed winners either. They are finding that the Internet is, at best, a zero-sum game.

Questions asked in Reasoning Section:

7 Box arrangement with different values :

T – 16
P – 2
V – 6
S – 20
Q – 9

Coding and Decoding

There were 5 sentences having unique words 4 in each row having 3 letter codes for each word.
The code format was "A Symbol out of *,#,%,$", "last letter of the word", "length of the word".

In RRB, as the name suggests, candidates that are recruited are posted in rural areas as RRBs have compulsion to have 80% of their banks in rural areas.

When an employee works for a RRB bank, he/she will have to work in rural areas for development and growth same as other banks located in towns and cities.

One cannot join automatically as an officer in a commercial bank from RRB. The candidate has to come through IBPS for nationalised Banks or SBI Recruitment Board for SBI officer's post.

RRBs have similar hierarchy as other banks, like if an individual starts as Assistant Manager (Scale 1) then he/she moves to Manager (Scale 2) then Senior Manager (Scale 3) and so on. But in smaller RRBs (who have fewer branches) senior level positions are not that prominent.

RRB (Regional Rural Banks) Officers/Assistants : Career Growth

As India has a sizeable rural population, regional banks become their first point of access for banking activities.

As an officer one can rise in the RRB cadre maximum up to Scale III, as senior posts are mostly filled by officers from their sponsoring bank/banks.

Many current CEOs and MDs of various government-owned banks began their career as a junior officer. With experience and performance on their side, they moved up the ladder. Consequently candidates can reach the top post as long as their commitment to serve and motivation to excel remains alive.
