      There is no mention of Probation by RBI. It is implied that the job doesn't have any Probation Period.

      I personally feel that PO is better than Assistant.

      One, PO has better Designation. PO is an officer but Assistant is clerical in nature.

      Two, PO also has better salary and Package.

      Three, POs have faster promotions chances.

      Only advantage offered by Assistant job is local and permanent Posting.

      Grade B Officer is an entirely different job. It is far better than a PO. chances of promotion are also very good. I don't have near ones in the job but from the sentiments of some of the successful people I could say that it is one of the best starting level post in Banking. You can contact Manish Tiwari who is a Grade B Officer and is an active social networker on Orkut @ http://www.orkut.co.in/Main#Profile?uid=5831897939573142694

      I think there are only 2 options hindi or English. Please check it out. The option you check won't make any bad impression. It should be valid.

      I don't think that there will be any provision for Tamil as a medium.

      I think that there was clause that you should have done your graduation from the region you are applying to. Please check it with the Board.

      Hello Gurpreet, nice hub.. I read and commented on your few hubs few months ago. Can you kindly help me with the names of some best coaching institutes of India for BANK PO.

      I tried preparing for it by myself but after failure in RBI Assistant and UIIC I am losing hope. My last PO exam was also not very good.

      I live at Calcutta, but I can relocate to any place in the country. I think relocating is necessary so that I can concentrate completely in studies.

      I have been following your hubs since months and now I trust you for this. Kindly suggest and help.

      Regards

      Hi rish,

      Thanks for trusting me. But I am not in a position to help you in this regard. I have never prepared or appeared for a PO Exam. Only advice I can give is that New Delhi and Patna are 2 best places for Govt Job Preparations. New Delhi mainly for Civil Services and Patna for Subordinate Services and Banks.

      POs carry better promotions but the work culture is not good. Moreover you will have to undergo several transfers (some to far off places) for getting promotions.
