Dear Friends,

As you are all aware there is rising unemployment in the country and lakhs of aspirants are preparing for government jobs like civil services, Rbi Grade B, State PCS, SSC and what not! There have been numerous incidents of paper leaks in many branches such as judiciary and civil. On top of that government is decreasing seats in spite of rising vacancies, state PCS exams are marred with late results and corruption. 

I have documentary evidence of all these claims. Please go through the following links:

Now, I would bring to your notice a very specific issue of RBI's changed eligibility criteria since 2014. Earlier, a general and OBC candidate needed 60% in graduation from any stream or 55% in Post Graduation in any stream. But, unfortunately RBI has rendered lakhs of aspirants ineligible even to take the exam by changing this clause. Now, general and obc candidates need minimum of 60% across 10th, 12th and graduation and post graduation criteria has been completely scrapped. This is nothing short of gross injustice to obc and general category candidates. How can one's eligibility be decided by 10th class exam or his graduation. Also, criteria for OBC is at par with general category whereas ST/SC have to score 50% in graduation.

Moreover, while almost all other important exams like UPSC- CSE require a candidate to have a graduation degree, it is strange for RBI to have such a stringent criteria for even applying for exam at a generalist post. It is anyways going to test the caliber and suitability of the candidate via a three stage test including the interview. Then, what is the point of curtailing thousands from even dreaming of clearing RBI Grade-B.

I know many of you might feel that 60% is not high at all and everyone must have these many marks in their graduation or 10th and 12th. But consider the fact that marking criteria vary hugely in various boards ranging from CBSE, ICSE and state government boards to state and govt universities and even in different streams.

Please sign this petition to demand for changes in eligibility criteria in the RBI Grade -B exam because no one deserves to be left out from applying merely based on a criteria that is itself not uniform.
