Best Bank Preference Order for Filling Up IBPS PO 2018 Application Form?

IBPS recently released the notification for the vacancies of Probationary Officers in the Public Sector Banks of India and there are a total of 4252 vacancies for this post. The registrations have started already and you all must have started to fill up the forms too. While filling up the application form, one comes across a step that asks her to tick mark the banks on the basis of her own preference of banks in which she wants to get posted. This is quite a difficult task for many as they don't know what should be the right choice of banks. One has to be very careful while filling up this part as she gets her posting on the basis of her preference only. Also, she will not get transferred to a different place before completing a certain period of time. So, aimsuccess.in is here with a post that discusses the details of filling up the bank preference order of the IBPS PO application form 2018.

Banks Participating In IBPS PO Recruitment 2018


Following are the PSBs participating in IBPS PO Recruitment as per the official notification. You will have to make your choice from the list of these banks:

Allahabad Bank Bank of Maharashtra Dena Bank Oriental Bank of Commerce UCO Bank
Andhra Bank Canara Bank IDBI Bank Punjab National Bank Union Bank of India
Bank of Baroda Central Bank of India Indian Bank Punjab & Sind Bank United Bank of India
Bank of India Corporation Bank Indian Overseas Bank Syndicate Bank Vijaya Bank

What if I prefer the bank that has not yet declared the number of vacancies? Will it affect my selection?


All the banks that have not yet declared the number of vacancies yet will declare them in dribs and drabs by the end of this year. So, you can apply for the banks that have not yet declared the number of vacancies and it will not affect your selection in any way.

Make your choice on the basis of the headquarters of these banks


To choose a bank on your preference list, its headquarter should be given the topmost priority. Every bank has the maximum number of its branches in the state its headquarter is located in. For example, Bank of Baroda has the maximum number of its branches in Gujarat. So, if you prefer this bank, probability of you getting posted in Gujarat increases. Although this bank conducts its recruitment process through PGDBF Programme at Manipal University, one can still put it as her first preference in the IBPS PO 2018 application form. Keep it in mind that a bank that has decided to recruit through this recruitment process will sooner or later declare the number of vacancies that need to be filled up for this financial year.

So, this article by Adad247 is intended towards guiding the candidates to fill up the bank preference list of this year's IBPS PO application form. We are also providing you with the headquarters of all the banks that are participating in this year's IBPS PO recruitment process. You can make your choice on the basis of these headquarters as this will help you get posted in your native state or the state you prefer to be posted in. The other thing that one should keep in mind while making the choice is the work culture of the bank. So students, act smart while filing up the form as not choosing the right bank may result in accommodation problems, etc. Here is the list of banks that you should go for on the basis of the states that you prefer to be posted in:
