The eligibility criteria for applying is ” educational qualifications should be  from a  recognized University/Institute  (UGC/AICTE approved) and the result should have been declared on or before 31.03.2015. (The fraction of percentage arrived will be ignored i.e. 54.99% will be treatedas less than 55% and 49.99% will be treated as less than 50%).”

The age bar according to notification is “18­-30 years of age as on 31­03­2015 (Relaxable upto 5 years in respect of Schedule Caste (SC), Schedule Tribe(ST) and Ex­ servicemen). The general category candidates born before 31.03.1985 & after 31‐03‐1997 are not eligible to apply.”

Pertinently this is bank’s third drive to recruit officers since 2008. The last being RE-2013 who are yet to complete their two year contract period. Besides, Bank also recruited Banking Associates (Clerk Cadre) in 2011 and than also absorbed few hundred who were dropped in list of RE-2013 batch as ‘contractual banking associates’. J&K Bank is the largest employer after State government. The move is being hailed as bank gives alternate space to professionals who otherwise are desirous of making their career in private sector outside the state.
