Mumbai: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday announced its decision to conduct a re-examination for recruiting Grade B (Gr B) officers at select centres in particular cities in Kerala. The phase-I of the examination to recruit grade B officers was conducted by the RBI services board on August 16. However, the widespread floods in the rain-ravaged state led to a decline in attendance of candidates in a few centres.

According to a statement by the apex bank, “the Board has been receiving representations from aspirants requesting for an opportunity to appear at the examination in light of the conditions in the state.” The bank added, “Having examined the matter, the Board has decided to conduct another examination at a few centres in selected cities in Kerala for the benefit of candidates from Kerala who could not appear in the examination held on 16th August.”

While the RBI will announce the exam date shortly, the bank stated that candidates who have already appeared in the examination held on August 16 cannot re-appear for the exam. “Accordingly, the date for ‘Phase-II or Paper-II and III’ examination, scheduled on 6th or 7th September 2018, will be rescheduled and the revised dates of the examination will be notified separately,” the statement added.
