JOB PROFILE

RBI Assistant’s job profile includes but is not limited to the following:

File Work: As an RBI Assistant, the most common job that you have to do is to maintain files on various matters of the organization. It also includes a collection of receipts, balance tally, maintenance of ledger, etc.

Data Entry: In any private sector or public sector organization, a common job for any Assistant is Data Entry. You'll have to process and feed the data in the organization's database which is to be retrieved and used later. However, these days, with the digitalization of the banks, the job profile of an assistant is mostly related to working on the computer/laptop and entering day to day transactions.

Replying to Mails: Surely, RBI being the father of all Indian Banks, gets a lot of letters every day. So, as an RBI Assistant, it will be your duty to reply to most of them and then get it approved by your boss, before drafting the final reply.

Making RTI Applicants Happy: You will be responsible for drafting replies to all the RTI queries, forwarded by the Information Commission. Your job is to draft a reply, which is satisfactory, and makes the applicant happy and it should not be rude.

Currency Issue & Circulation: In case a new currency is released, an RBI Assistant has to take up the responsibility for its fast circulation in the country. Also, in the case of demonetization, you will be in charge of handling all the issues related to the circulation of new currency and collection of old currency.

These are the main responsibilities of an RBI Assistant. Other than these, you will be responsible for ensuring financial stability in the organization, and take up some other responsibilities like verification of banking documents and attending Government Treasury Works.

Tips to Clear

Do you know that you can make your first attempt a second or a 10th attempt without really waiting for the next notification to come. I am going to tell you how you can do that, but first understand how the chances of getting success increases in the 2nd or third attempt.

There are three things -

- Between the first attempt and second attempt you have studied more, spent more time with the syllabus, attended more classes and studied books and magazines.

- Practiced more questions, may be by solving questions from books or more chapter tests, section tests and full length mock tests.

- You got more experience and more confidence and learned to get your best score in the time

Now let me tell you how you can do all this in the first attempt itself –

1. It’s not always more that helps, more important is that you study relevant and you study that again and again. For finding the relevant information, take the guidance from other successful candidates and exam experts. Be careful that ultimately it will be a unique strategy you will carve out for you but taking guidance from those who have travelled that path will help you. The goal is to concentrate your efforts on studying what is most relevant for cracking the exam.

2. The more you practice the better you become. Practice in a time bound manner. Find out your weak areas and attempt more and more practice tests on those chapters. You will learn what type of questions you can skip and which one you can solve fast and correct.

3. Training your nerves for the real exam experience is a critical element for success. This then is the reason that the chances of getting success increases in a second or third attempt. But if you attempt every mock test like a real exam your first exam may be like your 3rd or 10th attempt. While doing the Mock Tests, treat it like a real exam. Practice when you have no disturbance, keep your phone off, tell family members that no one will disturb you when you are doing the test. Record your score, analyse your performance and monitor the progress test after test.
