Usually training comes every 4-6 months for probationary officers after which the branch is changed.

After 6 months of joining the bank, you will be transferred to a new location. This is an exercise to make you adapt to situations and help you in understanding different fields of banking. After 6 months usually you are taught about documentation of loans. If you are in a forex related branch you learn forex related activities out there

Age Criteria :

Maximum age : 30 years

Salary of Probationary officer in Banks

The probation period is a full learning time in which you are assigned multiple tasks from cash to loans. If you learn properly in this time, then banking to come will be easy for you

During the first 12 months of joining the bank you are eligible for only 12 day leave i.e. 1CL every month which are credited to your account month wise.

After 12 months your leave account is credited with 12 CL, around 29-30 PL (1 PL for every 11 days – Sick leave & without pay ) and 15 Sick Leaves

I hope the post defines banking well for a probationary officer

Best of luck
