Will a clerk from IBPS get time to study for UPSC?

A lot of people here apply for the IBPS PO post & think they can prepare for UPSC too while working? Is it possible to do the same as a clerk? Because even though the salary of a clerk is basically less than half of a PO it would still be good to have some money in hand. Do clerks have to work for a longer time than POs in banks?


  • the job role of a clerk is much less than that of po.you are expected to work only from 10-5 strictly.
    if you can manage your boss,you can leave a bit early too.
    a bank po has more duties.clerks work only during official hours.
