SBI Clerk Result 2016 – Reasons for Delay and Updates

SBI Clerk Result 2016 has been delayed exceptionally and in this post I am going to tell you the likely reasons for delay in SBI Clerk Result 2016.

Visitors are asking this question frequently why SBI Clerk Mains Results have delayed. As you know that SBI has not announced any official reason for delay in the result however there could be a few likely reasons.

SBI had earlier declared the result of the preliminary exam promptly. However it has been a really long wait for the students as far as result of the main exam is concerned.

Development so far:

April 2016: State Bank of India had announced recruitment of more than 17000 posts in Clerical Cadre.

May 2016: As a part of SBI clerk recruitment selection process, the preliminary exam was conducted on 3 dates in May 2016 and 2 days in June 2016.

June 2016: The result of the prelims exam was declared on 16.06.2016. The main exam was conducted on 25.06.2016 and 26.06.2016.

The result of the main exam was scheduled to be declared in July 2016 however it has not been declared so far. The wait is still going on.

Rumours spread by various websites:

SBI Clerk is one of the most popular examinations of the country. All leading websites and news agencies are covering the developments. However there is nothing wrong in saying that many of the leading websites have also spread rumours on the result.

The fact is that SBI has not declared any official communication so far. The dates published by various websites regarding declaration of result are not authentic.

What is the update from SBI side? 

SBI has so far done only a tweet on this important result. The tweet published on 04.07.2016 says “SBI Main Exam Result for Junior Associates is being processed. We will come up with a notification on our website when ready”

Reasons for delay in SBI Clerk Result 2016 

Issue of conducting interview 

If you remember SBI has published that the selection process of the clerical cadre posts will be preliminary, mains and interview. Regarding interview it was published by the SBI that the phase III will be interview which will be subject to Government of India approval.

You may be aware that Last year, Government of India ordered all public sector units to stop conducting interviews for clerical level of posts. It is likely that SBI might be seeking permission from government for conduct of interview.

Following the instruction of government IBPS has also removed interview as a part of selection process for clerk recruitment.

There is possibility that due to issue of whether to conduct interview or not, result is getting delayed.

Case against SBI Clerk Result 2016

For the first time in banks recruitment SBI had barred loan defaulters to apply for Clerk Recruitment 2016. You may remember that an aspirant from Chennai filed a PIL against SBI. The PIL was filed to cancel the clerical recruitment completely.

It is possible that since the final verdict is still pending, the result may be declared after the verdict. The PIL was filed in Tamil Nadu and lawyers are on strike there. However the strike has ended recently. It appears SBI is waiting for the court’s judgment based on which they will decide on the next course of action.

 So these are the two reasons which I could make out. However there is nothing official about it. These are only likely reasons. In the mean time I urge you not to believe on rumours. Please visit only the official website of SBI for latest developments on the SBI Clerk Result 2016.
