The process of booking train tickets online is pretty similar to the RBI Grade B Online application process. In both processes, you need to be thorough while giving in your information and details. Similar to filling a railway booking form carefully to book your train ticket, being careful while filling in your RBI Grade B application form is key to a successful RBI Grade B registration.
You see, even though the process of the RBI Grade B online application is fairly straightforward, there are a lot of students who fail to carry it out correctly.
You might be shocked to know this, but I have met hundreds of students over the years who have made mistakes while filling in their RBI Grade B application form, and therefore got some or the other detail wrong in their RBI Grade B apply online process.
Thus, I have dedicated this article to help out students to avoid mistakes in their application forms by sharing a detailed step wise process to apply online. Along with that, I have also shared the information about the documents needed when filling the application form, the application fees, and the important dates pertaining to the online application window.

Talking about the RBI Grade B application fees payment, this is something without which your RBI Grade B registration 2022 can never get completed.
The Application fees payment is often the final step of any RBI Grade B online application process and can be done from the opening date to the end date of the application process.

- Debit cards (Visa/ Maestro/ MasterCard/ RuPay)

Now, to address the elephant in the room here, i.e., the fee amount, refer to the table I have given below.
|CGPA||Aggregate Percentage of Marks||Fee (in INR)|
|SC/ST/PWD||Intimation charges only*||100|

*SC/ST/PWD candidates need to pay the intimation charge of 100 INR only to successfully register for the RBI Grade B exam. They do not need to pay the application fees.

RBI Grade B Apply Online 2022 – Steps
So, let’s address the most important topic of the online application process.
I have written down below, the steps on how to fill the RBI Grade B online application 2022. I have divided the whole process into 10 steps. These will make it super easy.
Fill Registration Form
Step 1: Go to the official website of RBI – rbi.org.in. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on opportunities@RBI.
Step 2: On the page that opens up, you will have to hover on current vacancies. When you’ll do doing so, a drop-down menu will appear, click on vacancies in that drop-down menu.
Step 3: Next, a new page opens up, here click on “Recruitment of Officers in Grade B- DR (General), DEPR/DSIM-2022”.
Step 4: On the page that opens up, click on Online Application.
Step 5: After you’ve clicked the online application link, a new page opens up where you’ll have to click on “Click here for new registration”.
Fill Application Form
Step 6: On the page that opens up, fill up all your details like Name, Email ID, Mobile number, etc. When you’re finished filling up the information, click on save and next.
Note: After clicking on save and next, you will get a registration number and password. It will automatically get generated and you have to keep it safe.
Why I say that is because it’s a government website and you don’t want to go through the hassle of regenerating the password in the middle of your preparation.
Step 7: Now the photo and signature section will open up. Fill in all the details as required.
I have mentioned the rest of the details below. The details that you would need to fill in as well:
|Photograph||20-50 KBs||200 X 230 Pixels||JPG or JPEG|
|Signature||10 - 20 KBs||140 X 50 pixels||JPG or JPEG|
|Left - hand thumb impression||10 - 20 KBs||140 X 50 pixels||JPG or JPEG|
|Hand Written Declaration||20 - 50 KBs||140 X 50 pixels||JPG or JPEG|
Step 8: Here, as the next step, you’d have to fill in your personal details, educational qualifications, your job experience, and a few miscellaneous things like the Phase 1 exam center. When you’re done filling in the details click on save and next.
Note: I would recommend you to go to the center in a nearby city if you live in a remote place. This is an important thing to remember as the exam takes place online.
I say that because I have seen cases where the system at the center shows some error or the center is too dingy. This is the last thing you want after you are well prepared for the exam.
Step 9: Now a preview of the online application will appear on your screen. Check all the details very carefully.
If you find any mistakes, go back and correct them. Finally, when you find everything correct in the preview, click on “final submit”.
Step 10: After you have clicked on final submit, a page opens up where you will have to upload a left-hand thumb impression and a handwritten declaration stating that all the information and documents that you’re providing are correct, true, and valid.
Once you’re done uploading click on save and next.
Submit Application Fee & Print out E-Receipt
Step 11: After you have filled in all the aforementioned details, you can finally go on to finalize your registration by paying the registration fees using your debit/credit card, internet banking, cash cards, mobile wallets, etc.
Step 12: Once you are through with paying the registration fees, you will receive the ‘e-receipt’ as proof of successful fee payment. Keep it safe.
