As per the IBA settlement, bankers who have passed JAIIB and CAIIB exams are entitled to salary increments. The Banks which are following the IBA Salary structure are giving this benefit to their employees. After passing JAIIB, Clerks are eligible to receive one increment and Officers are also eligible for one increment. Passing the CAIIB examination gives two increments to clerks while officers get one increment in their salary. Apart from these flagship exams of IIBF, there are other Certificate Exams in Finance and Banking that are very helpful for the development of bankers’ knowledge & career.
