You may also want to get your postings in some specific areas or regions of the country. For this, you may have to check where the headquarters of the banks are located, to get an idea regarding your future postings.

Location Preference & Transfer Policy

Different banks will have different policies regarding transfer from one location to another, during the course of employment. Also, some banks may consider your preferences for location, while others may not work that way.  You must go through the transfer policies of the banks you are interested in to make a preference list, based on what you think will work best for you.
