Candidates attending the interview for IBPS PO posts need to produce the necessary documents for verification by the officials concerned, failing which they may not be appointed. Therefore, it is important for candidates attending the interview to have the required certificates and documents.
Because of a few instances of malpractice during recruitment in the past, banks are now very specific on checking the authenticity of the documents produced by the candidate prior to starting work at the organization.
In spite of candidates securing high scores in the interview and the exam, it is still possible for the banks to reject their appointment when they fail to submit the important proofs required by the officials.
So to help candidates here is a checklist of the documents to be submitted. All documents should be given as photocopy and original. Original documents will be returned once verification is completed.
Documents for Verification
