How good is SBI Clerk Job? Let’s see the promotion designation of a Clerk through various steps:

  • An SBI Clerk is eligible to get promotion through two modes:

    1. In-cadre Promotion
    2. Promotion to Officer Cadre

       In-cadre promotion:
       This type of promotion is based on home postings that is a time-bound promotion:

    1. i) A special allowance of Rs. 1800 is provided along with the total salary. After 10 years of service, the assistant becomes a Senior Assistant. (This Allowance is not considered for calculation of basic pay).
    2. ii) An assistant will become the Special Assistant after twenty years of service. This post carries a special allowance of Rs 2500/- (This is considered for calculation of basic pay).

    iii) An assistant will become Senior Special Assistant after thirty years of service. This post carries a special allowance of Rs 3500/- (This is considered for calculation of basic pay).
    Promotion to Officer Cadre:

    1. i) An assistant becomes Trainee Officer after completing three years of his/ her service.

    This requires qualification of the JAIIB and CAIIB Examinations from the Indian Institute of Banking and Finance (IIBF) apart from clearing the internal written examination and personal interview.

    These officers are then put on probation for a period of two years. After the probation period and based on their personal interview, they are either absorbed in the Middle Management Grade (Scale – II) or sent back to Clerical Cadre.

    An assistant can become Scale – I Officer also in the Junior Management Grade when he/ she has completed six years of service in fast track channel or twelve years of service in normal track channel. For faster promotions, JAIIB and CAIIB qualification is also important and should also clear the written test along with the personal interview.
