IBPS was formed after India nationalised its banks in 1969. The banks needed to expand their branch network across the country to make it more accessible to their customers. This required more staff and recruitment through advertising proved unsatisfactory. The banks then asked the National Institute of Bank Management (NIBM) to create a selection testing process through which they could hire competent candidates.
