In July, the IBPS recruitment process was put on hold by the Finance Ministry, which formed a committee to look into the demand of holding the examination in local or regional languages. The committee was asked to submit its recommendations within 15 days, following which a decision had to be taken.
Until last year, the institute held the clerical recruitment exam only in English and Hindi. Earlier this year, questions were asked why IBPS was holding exams to recruit clerks in only Hindi and English when the Constitution of India recognised 22 languages. After several such demands, the Finance Ministry decided to put on hold the ongoing recruitment process in July and formed a committee to look into the demands and recommend measures to address the issue.
In September, the Finance Ministry recommended that clerical recruitment for 12 Public Sector Banks should be conducted in 13 regional languages, apart from Hindi and English. It also clarified that Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's statement in 2019 assuring that banking exams will be held in local languages was in the context of Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) only.
