Abbreviations (Banking & Finance)

Hello Friends,

We hereby provide you list of Abbreviations important for Banking exams. Please note that in competitive exams questions pertaining to abbreviations would either be straightforward –  eg. What is the full form of FRBM? Or it might be twisted – eg. What does letter ‘F’ stand for in FRBM?

However more important is to memorise these abbreviations with an alert mind, as while attempting these questions in the heat of examination condition you might get into a dilemma within similar sounding/meaning options.

Example of Dilemma:

(Q.1) What is the full form of ‘FRBM’?

  1. Financial Responsibility and Budget Management
  2. Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management
  3. Fiscal Resources and Budget Management
  4. Financial Resources and Budget Management

Those candidates, who have prepared the abbreviations without an eye for detail, may easily get confused between ‘Fiscal & Financial’ or ‘Responsibility & Resources’. Thus it is advisable to pay attention to every letter within the abbreviation.

We hope this compilation will be helpful for your preparation.
