The Reserve Bank of India is the conducting body for all RBI exams. The entire recruitment drive, eligibility, exam dates, appointment, etc. are all managed by the Indian Central Bank themselves.

Joining RBI is a dream for lakhs of bank aspirants but the vacancies released by the body are way less in comparison to the number of applicants. Thus, the competition gets tougher with each passing year. However, with hard work and determination, a candidate can easily crack any banking sector exam and RBI is no exception.

The post of Grade B Officer is one of the highest entry-level jobs in the banking industry and candidates strive to achieve it. The RBI Grade B Apply Online procedure is completely online and no offline mode of application is accepted.
