    SEBI Grade A 2022 Salary: Perks & Emoluments

    Ever since I was a kid, instead of focusing on buying the groceries that were important, I would run and find things that had some offer that let me avail of a free gift.

    I know it might sound stupid but hey, I was a kid who loved getting something extra with whatever I bought even if it was as stupid as a plastic tiffin box which had no use to me whatsoever (who am I kidding, I still am crazy about freebies).

    Naturally, I wasn’t taken to grocery shopping very frequently.  

    Not that I’m comparing my little silly quirk to the benefits and perks you will get along with your SEBI Assistant Manager salary, but in my defense, I did warn you about the jokes.  

    So these are the perks that you get if you become a SEBI Grade A Officer-  

    • Leave Fare Concession
    • Medical Expenses
    • Financial Dailies
    • Book Grant
    • Briefcase
    • Transport Expenses
    • House Cleaning Allowance
    • Staff Furnishing Scheme
    • Computer Allowance
    • Subsidized Lunch Facility

    SEBI Grade A Vacancy 

    For the 2022 recruitments, SEBI announced a total of 120 vacancies (including 3 backlog vacancies).

    Trigger warning: Generally, people get anxious while going through this part of the blog considering the number of seats available is not a lot. 

    In my recommendation, stop competing with the other applicants but start competing with yourself. 

    The day you overcome your own shortfalls, is the day you wouldn’t have to be scared about any other competition. (Ted Talk)   

    Now, the 2022 SEBI Grade A vacancy allotment is shown in the table below.
