In order to meet the requirements and needs of the I.T modernization project, Infosys Core banking Solution (CBS) will be implemented across India covering all the Post offices.

Thus CBS is a step towards enhancing customer convenience through “Anywhere and Anytime Banking”. As Finacle is integrated to all the banks in course of time, the customer can access any bank account through post office.

        Around Rs.700 crore is earmarked for this Project. Core Banking Solution(CBS) for Post office Savings Bank is being implemented throughout India. As on date, 57 Head Post offices and 11 Sub Post offices have migrated covering 64 lakh accounts.  By 31.03.2014, 700 more Post offices will be covered. All the 26,840 Post offices would be functional in CBS by 2016. About 2 billion US$ have also been migrated.

        As part of this, the Post office Savings Bank ATM at Thyagarayanagar HPO is being inaugurated on 27.02.2014 by Shri. P.Chidambaram, Hon’ble Minister of Finance, Govt. of India. This is the first ATM opened and dedicated for the nation. Four more ATMs are ready for operation. The ATMs were installed by Infosys.

3. English: Prepositions, Adverbs, Conjunctions, Direct speech, In-direct speech, Singular and Plural, Antonyms and Synonyms are in it.
 
Preparation: Local language medium students often worry and fear about English. But as the question paper is prepared keeping all language students in mind.
