Hello Karishma Ji, Just a question, you have stated that you cleared IBPS however as i see that you joined IDBI under PGDBF thru Manipal. Any specific reason why not the former ? Please advise,

I just wanted to spend a year learning and studying. Earning a quick buck wasn't a priority. :)

Ok, Fair enough ! But i was advised to refrain from doing a PGDBF due to lower pay and also due to the loan from the bank to finance PGDBF which is deducted from the salary. Please can you tell us the pro's and cons of doing PGDBF thru bank and also abt whether we have an option to do JAIIB/CAIIB thru it or is it just meant for PO's thru IBPS.

Why should JAIIB/CAIIB be restricted to anyone? Anyone can do that? If you want to start earning right away go for IBPS . If you want to spend a year with books in a library it's your choice. A lot of my friends (who cleared both and yet stuck to the degree) who were brilliant in their own merit come from this degree. As far as finances are concerned, it's a very personal thing to comment upon. For me, that 1 yr in Bangalore was fruitful because I put it to really good use. For someone else it might not be the same. Hope it helped.
