Recruitment for bank jobs will be hit badly due to the proposed consolidation of public sector banks (PSBs), and a few banks have already put their fresh hiring plans on hold.

The probationary officer/management trainee recruitment for vacancies to be filled in 2018-19 has already been impacted going by the data of the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS), which is a common recruiting agency for officers in the 20 participating banks.
In the recruitment to be conducted this year, seven banks have indicated zero hiring. Four others have not reported any intention to recruit yet. These include Punjab National Bank, Oriental Bank of Commerce, Punjab and Sind Bank, United Bank of India, India
