Biased and Foul play in SBI PO final result - 2016-17/19

This petition had 1,036 supporters

This petition is on behalf of many bright students who were deserving to be SBI PO this year ( 2017) but suffered due to the great flaw and foul play in the system.

We, students, appeared for SBI PO Interview and Group Discussion process this year at various centers across India LHO. We performed very well in our GD and PI. Moderators were very much impressed by us and also gave positive feedback. We had our interview for around 15 minutes, but in the end, people who had bad interview experience are now all selected.

Yesterday(25-10-2017) scorecards were out and we were shocked to see that majority of us who had an excess of 15 - 20 marks in mains exams were short of less than 1 marks in Interview to clear the final merit. 

The most absurd thing about the result is that without any prior intimidation SBI decided to waive off sectional cutoff this year, whereas in their circular its mentioned that there will be sectional cutoff. Now if they had no sectional cutoff why was the timing allocated for every section in mains examinations differently. They should have allowed us to do our paper in without any time barrier for particular sections. How can they remove sectional cutoff? Why they fixed the time for particular sections differently? SBI belongs to people, and not to few people with malicious intent.

It's very much evident from the scorecard pattern that seats were already confirmed from the back door, and deserving candidates are given fewer marks than cutoff deliberately. This made the path clear for the officers sitting in the higher hierarchy to get their own candidates clear the examination.


1. No transparency in way of allocating marks in Interview and Group Exercise round.

2. Deliberately low marks given to good and deserving candidates to eliminate them.
3. Sectional cutoff eliminated all of a sudden without any prior notice and information. This has affected the results in a great way.

4. The number of vacancies reduced suddenly from that mentioned in the circular.


We challenge SBI to take interview again with transparency and award marks judiciously. Don't play with future of students who are deserving just for your personal gains.
