I am Sunil and i am an IT Professional with around 2.3 years of exp. in IT sector. But due to some family constraints i am preparing myself for the next IBPS IT OFFICER exam. But i have a concern.
Should i apply for IT OFFICER SCALE 1 or 2? (Although IT OFFICER SCALE-2 requires 1 yr of exp and i have 2.3 but I heard from some1 that IT OFFICER SCALE-2 doesn't have much vacancies and even if we clear the written they prefer candidates from banking sector only at the time of interview) Are the rumors true?
I also would like to inform that i belong to SC category(will this help me?).
And, As we know IT OFFICER SCALE -1 has more vacancies compatibly to SCALE-2 but there is a ransom difference between the SALARY AMOUNT. So i am kind of diverted towards SCALE -2 but quite confused due to all these rumors.
So please friends help and guide me towards the right path.
An immediate reply would be much appreciable.
