    Thanks for these questions. How can we prepare for Static Banking questions (covering almost every topic)?

    1. For static banking u can refer our quizzes. We have provided topic wise quizzes. Which cover almost everything

      1. Cherry

        Besides quizzes, any other material/pdfs I should refer to? Something that covers all data related questions about ATMs, Payment banks, small finance banks, and everything else that’s crucial for this exam.

        1. Payment and small finance banks topic is covered in those. About ATMs we will add.
          We will provide more sets. U can start with already provided ones.

          1. Cherry

            Sure. Thanks 🙂
