The National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) was started with the singular aim of strengthening the rural parts of India. That’s why candidates who wish to appear for NABARD exams should be ready to move to a rural area for the initial years of their employment. These days, private banks are also seeking to employ bright candidates in their rural branches. 

The NABARD exams for banking services are conducted in two phases. Phase I is called prelims. It is only a qualifying test. The marks obtained in phase 1 are not included in the final result. You need to score at least the cut off mark in the prelims to appear for the Mains (phase 2 of NABARD exams). Candidates who score well in Mains are invited for an interview. The selection is based on your performance in the Mains and interview round. 

 Separate exams are conducted for Grade A and Grade B officers. The qualifications pay scale and age criteria of the Grade A, and Grade B posts vary. Please do your research before filling out the application form. All the information is available on the NABARD official site.
