If you are also seeking recruitment in the one of the most renowned and reputed State Bank of India (SBI), here is a very significant update regarding the recruitments to be conducted this year.
What are the new guidelines by SBI for future recruitment processes?
Recently, SBI has introduced a new provision in the identity verification process of the recruitments. According to this recent amendment notified by SBI, it would be compulsory for all the future job applicants to present forth their Aadhaar card to validate their identity.
Yes, now it has been made mandatory for every person to have the Aadhaar card if he wishes to get recruited in SBI. This new rule will come in effect from 1st July, 2017.
What does the notice states?
According to the notice issued by the recruitment and promotion department of SBI, it would be necessary to furnish his/her Aadhaar for ascertaining their identity, which is one of the most crucial step in the recruitment process.
In case the applicant has applied but still has not received his 12 digit Aadhaar card number, he can attach his 28 digit Aadhaar enrollment number also. This will be made mandatory for all the job aspirants who will apply on and after 1st July, 2017.
SBI will operate the Aadhar card number to verify the biometric information taken at the time of interview or medical fitness test or examination or reporting during the joining, with the one that is already stored on the Aadhaar server to authenticate the identity of the recruitment applicant. All this will be done in order to enforce the different contingencies of the Section 57 of the Aadhaar Act 2016.
The date of implementation of the provisions and the regulations covered under the Aadhaar Act, 2016 (Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) is based on the official notice that is issued by the official Government Gazette.
What are the exceptional cases of this provision?
This new provision is applicable impartially to all the states as well as the union territories of the nation. However, there are some parts that are exempted from this provision. The states of Jammu and Kashmir, Meghalaya and Assam are the exceptions and kept out of the circle of this provision.
In place of Aadhar card, the applicants belonging to these states can present their voter ID cards/ driving license/ passport or any other official document as specified by SBI in their recruitment notice to validate their identity. 🙂
