RBI Grade B Phase 2: What should be written in the Biodata Form?


This year RBI has introduced new criteria for the students appearing in the Phase 2 examination of RBI. This is something new that RBI has done this year only. The students writing the Phase 2 exam of RBI Grade B 2021(General/DEPR/DSIM) have to submit a detailed biodata form before March 22, 2021.

The RBI Grade B Phase 2 BIO-DATA form is crucial and you should ensure that the information is presented clearly. It won’t be wrong to say that the information mentioned in the RBI Grade B Biodata form will influence your interviewer even before you two meet. The information should be presented clearly so that the interviewer and you can make the most of the interview.

The filling of the biodata form requires a detailed understanding otherwise there are chances of committing mistakes. Here we are discussing the instructions and details of how to fill the form and what information has been asked from you. The chronological order represented here is the same as the sequence given in the biodata form.


The form starts with the heading of “post applied” where you have to write about your stream i.e., General/DEPR/DSIM. Write the roll number in the roll number column and the medium of interview either English or Hindi. The recent photograph should be pasted and it should be the same as was in the RBI form. The photograph should be self-attested, which means after pasting the photograph it should have your signature on it.
