Reportedly the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS)’s recruitment test for Officer Grade 1 and Office Assistant can now be given in English and in the regional languages of the applicants. Meanwhile this was stated by the Ministry of Finance through a tweet late on Friday night, after massive outrage by pro-Kannada groups over the compulsion of giving IBPS exams either in English or in Hindi.

Previously on Thursday, the IBPS issued a notification containing the details of the examination. Perhaps one crucial detail stood out glaringly those writing the exam would have to give a mandatory English and Hindi proficiency test. Hence this has angered several pro-Kannada activists and politicians in the state with former Chief Ministers Siddaramaiah and HD Kumaraswamy lashing out against the BJP government both in the centre and the state.



Moreover on July 4 this year, Nirmala Sitharaman also announced in Parliament that recruitment exams for Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) would be held in 13 regional languages, including Kannada. Recently the IBPS released the notification on Friday and stated it had no changes with respect to the language policy. Earlier in 2014, the BJP government had issued a notification stating that IBPS exams can be conducted only in Hindi and English languages and prior to this notification, the exam could also be conducted in regional languages. Further the latest recruitment advertisement mandates a Hindi and English proficiency test.
