IBPS Bank Joining documents



Dear Readers !! Welcome 



As we know that the allotments for PO, Clerk & Specialist Officers in the public sector banks, has been completed by IBPS.


IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) is an autonomous agency in India, which started its operation in 1975 as Personnel Selection Services (PSS).


The allotment process is a part of the CWE Selection Process. After the allotment by IBPS, now you have to wait for your respective banks to announce your reporting date. The openings can be filled next year. The joining dates for IBPS PO Joining/ IBPS Clerk Joining will be announced after 2-3 months of allotment.

At the time of reporting, you have to keep some documents with you that will be verified by the Bank Officials. To join a bank is not an easy task. The banks are very conscious about the verification of documents as there are some illegal activities involved in the recruitment process to join the bank. Even if you have secured top score in the IBPS Exam and interview, if you fail to bring any of the required document, your allotment will be canceled by the bank.


Therefore, here we are providing you list of all the important documents that should be carried by the candidates in original and also in photocopy, at the time of reporting. Check out the list of important documents.




1. Identity Proof


You must keep at least one ID proof with you at the time of reporting. This may include PAN card/Aadhar card/Driving License/Voter’s ID/Passport etc.



2. Date of Birth Proof


DOB Proof is also the most important document which is verified by officials. Usually, they verify it by referring to mark sheets but you should also carry the DOB certificate with you, as it may be possible that they will check it.



3. Documents related to Educational Qualification


You will be asked for your original documents related to your qualifications. The documents must include mark sheets of 10th and 12th Class, mark sheets and degrees of UG & PG or any other educational details if you have. The date of passing the degree exam mentioned on degree mark sheet or provisional certificate will be considered to check your eligibility condition.



4. Certificates of Computer Literacy


If you have applied for the clerical position, then it is mandatory for you that you should have studied Computer Science or IT as a subject in high school or college. You can also provide the degree of any course in computer operations/language from an institute.



5. Caste Certificate/Category Certificate


Candidates belonging to the reserved category should bring their caste/category certificates issued by appropriate authority.



Those belonging to OBC category (non-creamy layer) should bring a certificate that specifically contains a clause that the candidate does not belong to creamy layer section. It should have been issued within one year from the date of exam notification (refer date of IBPS advertisement)


PWD candidates are entitled to bring disability certificate in proper format issued by district medical board.


Ex-Servicemen must bring discharge letter along with pension payment order & proof of last held rank.



6. IBPS Online Application


You have to bring the online application of IBPS PO/Clerk/SO Exam. You should take the printout of these application forms, as it will be asked at the time of reporting.



7. Relieving Letter


Many candidates mention their experience in the application forms. If you are one of those candidates, then you should also bring the relieving letter with other documents.


All the above-stated documents are very important, as Banks have the authority to disqualify candidates from job joining if they do not provide the necessary proofs.


Be responsible, so that you don’t lose the opportunity by making silly mistakes of not bringing any of these important documents.


So make sure, when the allotment process start and you are asked to report, start collecting all these documents and keep them with you along with their photocopies at the time of reporting.


Report with confidence and All the Very Best!!

      Hello Jasbir,

      Greetings from Eduncle!

      Thanks for sharing your query with us!

      Firstly relax, and calm down your strained senses. You need not worry regarding the small spelling mistake. The documents that are taken into consideration by the IBPS authorities is the 10h mark sheet and not the MBA mark sheet (as applicable in your case).

      So, you won’t have to bear for any penalties for the same.

      All the Best for your future career endeavours!

    Hello Sir,
    I didn’t mention my past employment in my ibps po application form . I worked in a nationalized bank for 1.5 years but due to my mothers illness I had to resign the job by serving 3 months notice . I cracked the exam again and got the same bank .As I was in probation period I thought it was not required to show may be it was mistake on my part. I want to reveal it during my joining formalities and attestation form about my past employment . Will it cause any problem ? what would be the consequences of revelation of my past employment ? Could they cancel my candidature ?

      Hello Rahul,
      Greetings from Eduncle!
      As mentioned in the official brochure of IBPS PO 2017, the aspirants could submit their valid mark-sheets till 5th September only and on the other hand, the last date to submit valid Graduation Mark-sheet for IBPS Clerk 2017 was 3rd October.
      As you said that you got your complete result declared on 4th October, you might not be eligible to appear in any of these exams.
