NABARD Grade A 2024 Eligibility Criteria

With the official notification for NABARD Grade A 2024 isn’t out yet, the details regarding the latest eligibility criteria for NABARD Grade A 2023 has been provided.  

The primary eligibility requirements for the NABARD Grade A exam can be broken down into two major categories – Educational Qualification & Age Limit.

The eligibility of NABARD Grade A is not that tough when we compare it with all the other government exams in India.

It gives you a chance to make your dreams come true without judging you on the basis of your past educational qualifications. So let’s jump right in.

NABARD Grade A 2024 Eligibility Criteria: Educational Qualification

The latest education qualification criteria is as follows:

a) You can apply for only one discipline in NABARD Grade A (RDBS/ Rajbhasha/ P & SS). In case you apply for multiple disciplines, only the last application submitted will be considered valid and fees against all other applications will be forfeited. I have mentioned all the different disciplines in the vacancy section above. Having said that, if you want you can check the NABARD Grade A selection procedure.

b)The NABARD Grade A 2023 eligibility criteria given in the notification has been released on the website of NABARD.In the detailed PDF everything about Eligibility criteria is given.

Note: If your final year/semester results have been declared after 01 September 2023, you are not eligible to apply for the NABARD 2023 exam.

PostMinimum Education Qualification
GeneralGraduation -You need to have at least 60% marks in graduation - (SC/ST/PWBD applicants - 55% in graduation) Many students ask if 60% marks in Graduation should be in each semester or average. Well, relax. It’s an average of all semesters.
OR
Post- Graduation - You should have an aggregate 55% marks in Post-Graduation (SC/ST/PWBD applicants - 50% in post - graduation) MBA/PGDM.
OR
CA/ CS/ICWA OR Ph.D. from Institutions recognized by GOI/UGC.
Equivalent CGPA/ OGPA/ CPI or similar terminologies allotted on a 10 point scaleAggregate % of Marks
6.7560%
6.2555%
5.7550%
5.2545%

For candidates who have CGPA as marks scored in their graduation or post – graduation, can convert their CGPA score into percentage using the formula provided in the table.  

NABARD Grade A 2024 Eligibility Criteria: Age Limit

As per the latest NABARD Grade A age limit criteria, you should be between 21 and 30 years of age as on 01-09-2023 (you must have been born not earlier than 02-09-1993 and not later than 01-09-2002) to be eligible for the exam.  

The age limit for eligibility criteria, i.e., 21 to 30 years of age is likely to be same in the notification for NABARD Grade A 2024.  

Relaxation in Upper Age Limit:

CategoryAge Relaxation
SC/ST5 years
Other Backward Classes (OBC) Candidates3 years
Ex-servicemen (including Emergency Commissioned Officers/Short Service Commissioned Officers) provided that you have worked for at least five years.5 years
Emergency Commissioned Officers/Short Service Commissioned Officers who have completed their initial period of assignment of five years of Military Service but whose assignment has been extended beyond five years and in whose case, on selection, the Ministry of Defence issues certificates that they would be released within 03 months from the date of receipt of an offer of appointment.5 years
Family members of victims died in the1984 riots5 years
Persons with Disabilities (PWBD)General–10 years
OBC–13 years
SC/ST–15 years

NOTE: No Cumulative age relaxation will be available to any applicant.

I have seen students clear their graduation at the age of 19. If you are one of them, you are not eligible for the NABARD Grade A Exam.

This was all about NABARD Grade A Eligibility Criteria. Now let’s move on to Grade B Eligibility Criteria.

NABARD Grade B 2023 Eligibility Criteria

The eligibility of Grade B exam is somewhat similar to that of Grade A exam. The only difference lies in the percentage marks you require.

Since NABARD Grade B is a post higher than NABARD Grade A, so it is obvious that you will require a higher percentage in your Post-Graduation to be eligible for Grade B.

As per the NABARD Grade A 2021 notification, you would only be able to apply for Grade B 2021 only if your final year/semester results were declared on or before 01-07-2021.

NABARD Grade B 2022 Eligibility Criteria: Educational Qualification

To be eligible for NABARD Grade B you require the following educational qualifications as mentioned in the table below.

Experience: A student is required to have a minimum 03 years’ experience (SC/PWBD – 02 years) in sectors like Banking, Finance, Agriculture & Allied and Rural Development is essential. Experience should be gained after Post graduation.

NABARD Grade B 2022 Eligibility Criteria: Age Limit

As per the 2021 age limit criteria, you should be between 25 and 32 years of age as on 01-07-2021 (you must have been born not earlier than 02-07-1989 and not later than 01-07-1996) to be eligible to appear for the exam.

But don’t worry if you don’t come in this age group as NABARD provides certain age limit relaxations.

The relaxations in the upper age limit are exactly the same as the relaxations provided for NABARD Grade A Exam.

I hope that this blog helped you understand all the different aspects of NABARD Grade A & Grade B officer eligibility.

I will take this blog further but before that, I would like to continue my story of Leh. When I was booking a ride for Leh, I realized how expensive it was.

My hobbies were not very pocket-friendly. It was like my 2 month’s income and I was hesitant.

I asked myself “Is it worth it?”.

Indian parents always teach us to save the money we earn and they are not wrong.

I just kept on asking the same question in my head but I realized that this makes me happy and I booked it.

If you have some hobbies which require some money, don’t worry. NABARD will get you covered.

The salary given by NABARD is good enough to cover your daily expenses and enjoy your hobbies once in a while.
