Moreover, Eligibility criteria for Accounts Assistants was also changed. In previous years Notifications, A Simple Graduate is eligible to apply for Account Assistant. But from now onwards, Only those who have Degree in Management, Computers, Commerce and those having studied Maths, Economics and Statistics as Subjects in Degree can apply.
