Large Scale Coverage In Operations Of Baroda Rajasthan Gramin Bank Fortified With Merger
Due to the 1976 Act of Regional Rural Banks, passed by the Government of India, a number of gramin banks came up in the country. Almost every state in India had one or more such regional rural banks established to provide banking facilities in the villages for the benefit of the common men. This went on to give a financial independence to the customers of these banks, who could not avail deposit accounts and loan and credit facilities. Capitals for their business and operations were received from the central and state government and a public sector bank. It was a great way to reach to the poorer sections of the villages and semi urban areas.
- Formation and merger of Baroda Rajasthan Gramin Bank:
In the state of Rajasthan, a number of such Gramin banks could be found, which means that hundreds of villages had one or more of such Gramin bank branches. Among the different options of Gramin banks available in Rajasthan, the Baroda Rajasthan Gramin Bank was an important rural bank sponsored by the Bank of Baroda and works under the central government. The BRGB came into force in 1976 and till 2013, it had about 270 branches covering about 13 districts in the state of Rajasthan. It operated from the headquarters in Ajmer.
In the year 2013, it was decided that the Baroda Rajasthan Gramin Bank would be merged with two other Gramin banks of Rajasthan, namely Rajasthan Gramin Bank and Hadoti Kshetriya Gramin Bank. Together, these three would be named as Baroda Rajasthan Kshetriya Gramin Bank, with headquarters in Ajmer and sponsorship by Bank of Baroda.
- Officer and assistant jobs in plenty:
From time to time, Baroda Rajasthan Gramin Bank had an influence on the job scenario in the banking sector. With a huge network of branches of this bank, it is a prospective opportunity for those candidates, who are seeking banking jobs. They can apply for the posts of officers in different levels of Group A cadre, such as Specialist officers, probationary officers and different levels of management scale officers. Also, there are multipurpose office assistants who are recruited through the entrance exams. These posts are usually published in a good number, giving opportunities for many candidates to find a job of their choice.
- Road through IBPS open for plentiful avenues:
IBPS or Institute of Banking Personnel Selection is an autonomous body in the country, which has been given the charge of conducting Common Written Exam or CWE for selecting candidates after the written round. While IBPS is looking after the recruitment process of many other nationalised banks, it has also been given the charge of conducting CWE for RRBs in India, twice in a year.
After the CWE, candidates are provided with the qualifying Total Weighted Score or TWS. Depending on the cut offs proposed by the Baroda Rajasthan Gramin Bank, interested candidates can submit their applications, which will allow them to appear in the interviews leading to the final selections of the candidates. This is the road to a bright future of these candidates, who had aspirations for banking jobs in the country.
Millions of villagers in the state of Rajasthan have been benefited by the efforts of the Baroda Rajasthan Gramin Bank, as it provides opportunities for them to avail deposit accounts, loan and credit facilities and various other facilities. Also, candidates with the wish to find good bank jobs can submit their applications, whenever the advertisement for the vacancies of the particular bank is published.
