In notification exam date is not mentioned, how u r saying that it is in august.
also i have doubt that how much time period will we get to prepare for mains after phase 1 or we have to start now itself ah.
also they mentioned that phase 2 marks will only consider for interview. is it so there is no consideration of phase 1 mark for final selection,
it is just a gate to enter the main exam ah

A big thank you (..Dil se) for your guidance and help Sir.
I just want to know how importantly is banking experience required to score in rbi grade b interviews?
I have heard people say that rbi grade b rejects freshers in the interview stage because they value officers with post-probation banking workex only.
please tell me how true is this?
please..
i would definitely love to thank you beforehand.

It is mentioned in advertisement that there is horizontal reservation for disabled candidate.
Can some one clarify what does it means ?
If a person is both OBC and Disabled, will he get reservation within reservation ?
I am asking because UPSC does not follows this kind of policy.
