IBPS Bank Joining Documents


Dear Readers !! Welcome!!


Every year, IBPS recruits candidates for the posts of Probationary Officer and Clerk in Public Sector banks through IBPS PO and IBPS Clerk examinations. 


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/IBPS Clerk will be announced after 2-3 months of allotment.

Documents Required for Joining in Banks


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.
