NABARD Grade-A Exam 2021: The Grade A officer exam conducted by NABARD probably ranks at the top when it comes to syllabus depth. The syllabus is so vast that you just can’t cover it with regular study material. It would be best to have good books by your side, especially for Economic and Social Issues, and Agricultural and Rural sections.
NABARD is a bank with a defined niche in the banking industry that will focus more on the topics that are of key importance to them. It is not a regular bank and, anyway, comes under the ownership of the Indian Finance Ministry.
Many interested aspirants would have felt lost once they had a first look over the syllabus, especially of phase-2. But this article will gain you back your confidence as we will reveal high-quality reference books which will help you immensely in your NABARD Grade A preparation.
