Actually I got in as Cr Officer in another Bank. And between RBI Assistant and Officer Scale 1 their is 5-6 years of difference. No Doubt it was not that easy decision considering the Brand Name and Treatment to HR, by RBI.
RBI Assistant interview mainly focuses on recent news regarding Banking Industry.It also asks questions about recent RBI announcement and candidates thought on them.So you should be familiar with banking terms and terminologies.Along with that understanding of common terms like CRR and Repo rate is very important.I have covered these in my Banking Awareness app.
Apart from Banking related questions you will have profile based questions.For example if you are from a particular city or region then they may ask you about that region or city.So you should take a look into your profile and try to figure out the questions they may ask you.
Most of the candidates do not do this exercise.They do all the stuffs but do not dig in their profile to figure out possible interview questions arising from their profile.So your first step should be evaluating your profile for possible questions and then learning the banking stuffs.
I have compiled list of interview tips and HR based interview questions in my IBPS post.You can read the IBPS posts for preparation tips on written test as well as interview.You can also download the interview questions and tips document from the links given below
