NABARD Assistant Manager - Selection Procedure

A. The selection will be in three Phases as furnished below:

* The Preliminary Examination is only qualifying in nature and is meant to serve as a screening test. Candidates who qualify and rank sufficiently high as decided by NABARD, shall be called for appearing at the Main Examination. The calling ratio for Main Exam shall be 1:25. There will be penalty for wrong answers marked by the candidate. For every wrong answer marked, 1/4th of the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty in Phase I and Phase II, both. Cut-offs in Phase I and Phase II may be applied in two stages : (i) On scores in individual tests, (ii) On Total Score

Since the vacancies are earmarked discipline-wise, merit list of candidates for each stage will be prepared discipline-wise.

B. Only such candidates who score the minimum cut off marks or above in the Main Examination will be shortlisted for interview. The calling ratio for Interview shall be 1:5. The final selection and ranking of the applicants for the post of Assistant Manager in Grade ‘A’ (RDBS) will be based on their performance in the Phase-II Main Examination and Interview, taken together. In case of candidates securing same marks their ranking will be decided as under:

I. Among the candidates having equal marks in total (Main examination + interview taken together), the candidate with higher marks in Main Examination will be ranked higher.

II. In case of having equal marks in Main Examination, candidate with higher qualification or in case of similar qualification, candidate with higher marks in graduation will be ranked higher. In case of further tie-up, the candidate senior in age will be ranked higher.

NOTE: With a view to overcoming the possibility of applicants seeking help of other applicants during the online / main exam, the Bank would be analysing the responses of applicants in the main examination with other appeared applicants to detect patterns of similarity of right and wrong answers. On the basis of such an analysis, if it is suspected that the responses have been shared and scores obtained are not genuine/ valid, the Bank reserves the right to cancel the candidature of the suspected applicants. Hence the applicants are advised in their own interest not to indulge in any unfair practice in the exams.
