Computer Literacy:

Some banks insist that the candidate should posses working knowledge of computers before joining the bank and few banks mention that the desired computer skills may be acquired within six months of joining the bank. If a candidate has not studied computers as one of the subjects in school/college, the candidate must possess a valid diploma (basic applications) in computers.

Language Proficiency:

Public Sector Banks:
Since clerical cadre recruitment would be on State-wise basis, the candidate may also be required to possess proficiency in the Official Language of the State/UT for which vacancies he wishes to apply.

Regional Rural Banks :
For Office Assistants (Clerks) and Scale-I Officers ---- Candidates are required to possess proficiency in the Official Language of the State/UT in which RRB is located and must have passed "local language" as one of the subjects at Matriculation/Xth Standard

As every bank is free to decide the eligibility criteria for its officers or clerks, the candidates must read the notification carefully and ensure their eligibility before making an application.
