SBI PO Selection Procedure: Important Points

The candidates should keep in mind the following points related to the SBI PO selection process:

• Biometric Verification: To ensure an error-free and secure selection procedure for SBI PO 2021, the bank may digitally capture the thumb impression of the candidate. This is done to verify the genuineness of the candidates. Any inconsistency in the biometric verification will lead to rejection of the candidature and punitive legal actions. Candidates are thus advised not to apply any kind of external matter like ink, Mehandi, chemical, etc. on their hands.

• Number of Attempts: The maximum number of chances is fixed for each category. Candidates who have used up all the chances are not eligible to apply. Appearing in Preliminary Exam is not counted as an attempt but appearing in Mains Exam is counted.
