Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) is all set to release the Grade A Recruitment 2022 official notification soon, especially in the upcoming week. Notification will be issued through the online mode, on the official website sidbi.in. As of now, very few details are known about this recruitment drive. In fact, candidates are also confused about the selection process i.e., will it contain one stage or two stages. However, experts speculate a 50-50 possibility for both options.
As per experts, the SIDBI Grade A Notification is expected to release on or before March 06, 2022. Moreover, the selection process may have two stages i.e., preliminary exam (stage 1) and mains exams (stage 2). There is also a possibility of the recruitment drive comprising only one stage. Either way, the written exam is likely to be conducted in the third week of April 2022.
SIDBI Grade A 2022 Number of Vacancies
Previously, SIDBI had conducted the Grade A recruitment drive in 2014. At that time, candidates were shortlisted to fill-up a total of 80 vacancies. As of now, the bank has not provided any clarity on the number of vacancies this year. However, experts are predicting an increase in vacancies due to tough competition. Whether or not this speculation comes true will be known once the notification comes out.
