RBI Grade B Admit Card

Topics Covered: RBI Grade B Admit Card, Admit Card Dates, Phase 1 & Phase 2 Admit Cards,  Interview Call Letter, Steps to Download Admit Card,  Details on Admit Card, RBI Grade B Exam Centres, Phase 1 & Phase 2 Exam Centres, Interview Centres, Documents Required at Exam Centres & Interview Centres

Without beating around the bush, let me start this article by stating that the RBI Grade B admit card is the most important document that a candidate can carry with him on the day of the exam. That is because without an admit card, the candidate won’t even be allowed to enter the exam center.

Let me state some examples to put things into perspective. Take for example your voter ID card. To cast your vote on an election day, it would be imperative for you to carry your voter ID card along with you to the election booth. If you don’t, you won’t be allowed to enter the premises.

Another example to better understand the function of the RBI Grade B admit card can be that of entry passes. Similar to RBI Grade B admit cards that are needed to enter the exam center, to enter any professional level conference or symposium, a participant would be required to carry his entry pass with him. If he doesn’t, he won’t be allowed to enter.

To put things formally, the RBI Grade B admit card is an important document that serves the purpose of validating your presence in the RBI Grade B exam hall.

Now to briefly Talk about the release dates of the RBI Grade B admit cards, they are released almost 7-10 days prior to each of the phases of the exam.

Having said that, I guess by now you must have figured what this article is about. In this article, I have written in detail about the RBI Grade B admit cards, and several other related topics such as the RBI Grade B Phase 2 Admit Card, RBI Grade B Phase 1 Admit Card, & RBI Grade B Admit Card Download.

So, without further ado, let us begin.

The Phase 1 admit card can only be used to appear for the Prelims exam. All candidates who submit valid application forms are issued Phase 1 admit cards.

That said, the RBI issued about 2 lakh+ Phase 1 admit cards for the mains or the Phase 2 exam in 2021.

RBI Grade B Phase 2 2021 Admit Card

The 2021 RBI Grade B Phase 2 admit cards were released on March 20th, 2021. That said like the phase 1 admit cards, the RBI Grade B 2021 Phase 2 admit cards were also available for download from the official website of the Reserve Bank of India.

However, before that, let me just quickly state that if you want to know about the Phase 1 and Phase 2 exam pattern and syllabus, you can click here to know more about the RBI Grade B syllabus and exam pattern.

RBI Grade B Interview 2021 Call Letter

To begin with, let me inform you that the RBI Grade B admit cards for the interview rounds are generally known as interview call letters, so we shall be referring to them by the same.

This differentiation of the names, viz-a-viz, call letter for the interview round & admit card for the mains and prelims round is solely to avoid confusion between the two.

That’s because, by the time of the interviews, the initial Prelims and Mains admit cards become useless.

That said, since the interview round is the final stage of the RBI Grade B exams, you will be called in for your interview and document verification via the call letter.

All RBI Grade B interview call letters are sent to the applicants on their registered email IDs only. The call letters are never sent by post. Therefore, I’d advise you to keep your RBI registered email ID running till the final results are released.

Given below are the dates for the release of Interview call letters for the 2021 RBI Grade B exam:

Documents Required at Exam Centres

It is compulsory to take your admit cards with you to the exam hall, i.e., the RBI Grade B Phase 1 admit card to the Phase 1 exam hall, and the RBI Grade B phase 2 admit card to the Phase 2 exam hall.

If you do not take your admit card along with you to the exam hall, you won’t be allowed to give the paper, but I guess you already know that.

Long story short, here are the documents you’d require to carry to your exam hall:

  • Your Admit Card
  • A valid ID proof document
  • A passport size photo of yourself

Note: You can carry anyone, from the Valid identity proof documents that I have listed below:

  • Voter ID
  • Adhaar Card
  • Pan Card
  • Driving License
  • Passport etc

PS: Make sure to carry the identity proof which has your date of birth mentioned on it. Also, make sure to carry the same passport size photo that you had uploaded during the application process.

Documents Required at Interview Centres

If you qualify for the interview round, you will be required to produce the following documents for verification at the interview centre. You must carry the original of each document as well as a photocopy of it:

  • Print out of the Interview Call Letter
  • Original Attestation Form with affixed signed photographs
  • Govt. issued ID Proof such as Aadhar Card in original and photocopy
  • All Educational mark-sheets and certificate
  • Bio-Data Form (1 original & 6 photocopies) in prescribed size with signed photographs
  • OBC/SC/ST Candidates also need to carry the original caste certificate along with its photocopy
  • EWS Candidates also need to carry the original Income & Asset certificate along with its photocopy.

Conclusion

So, if you have come all this way till here then I’m assuming that you must have read all the information that I have provided on this page like How to avail the admit card and at last the list of various exam centers.

All these topics are really important for you to know if you are planning to appear for the upcoming examination. I hope the content has clarified all your doubts related to the RBI Grade B admit card. Take care and God bless!
