  1. Do you have any information on the next ibps exam date in 2020? I heard that IBPS is going to stop the recruitment after the amalgamation of banks.

    • The amalgamation of banks may slightly reduce the total number of opportunities but I don’t think it is going to affect IBPS recruitment. It is a good change as the selected candidates get opportunity in a big and better bank which has a lot of branches and business. Regarding your question, you may expect the next IBPS exam registrations start around the dates as given the article.
