Reasoning Study Notes: Coding Decoding

Dear Readers,

Today we’ll discuss about Coding- Decoding. This topic is can fetch you marks easily but you need to know the right concepts and types of questions to practice.

In banking exams Coding Decoding questions can be asked in Data Sufficiency or there can be direct questions of coding-decoding itself. Usually 3-5 questions can be asked from this topic, thus it can fetch you easy marks with right practice.

Tips:

1. Try to focus on the thinking behind the solution.

Example 1: If GLORIOUS is coded as GOLRIOSU, code ‘JUDICIAL’?
Solution: This doesn’t need any explanation. A simple question based on observation.
As G L O R I O U S is coded as G O L R I O S U, we are that second and third letters are interchanged, again last two letters are also interchanged as shown below.
 
Using the same logic, the word J U D I C I A L is coded as J D U I C I L A

Example 2: If PEN is written as ‘+X’ and ENT is written as ‘X–’ in a certain code, how is TEN written in the same code?
Solution: The first thing to notice is that PEN has three characters while +X has only two. So two characters of PEN have been replaced by a single character. The same pattern can be seen in the case of ENT.
We must look for something common in the two of them PEN and ENT.
PEN = “+X”
ENT = “X–”
Common feature in both the above are EN & X.
So P = +, EN = X & T = –
TEN = –X

2. LETTER CODING:
Here letters are assigned codes according to a set pattern or rule concerning the movement or reordering / rearranging of letters and you need to detect this rule to decode a massage. Sometimes, specific codes are assigned to particular letters without any set pattern. Observe a few examples to know the various reordering or rearranging techniques.

Direction for example 3: In these questions the real alphabets in a word are replaced by certain other alphabets according to a specific rule to form its code.
Example 3: In a code language if TRAINS is coded as RTIASN, how PISTOL will be coded in the same language?
(a) SITLOP
(b) IPSTLO
(c) SIPTLO
(d) IPTSLO

Solution: If we compare the basic word {TRAINS} with the coded word {RTIASN}, we would see that the letters used in the word are same as in the basic word but their order of placement has been changed. Letter T at first position of the basic word has been placed at second position in the coded word and the letter R at the second position has been placed in the first position.
It means that in this question, letters of the basic word have been interchanged i.e. first letter with second, third with the fourth and so on. And thus we get the coded word. So PISTOL will be coded as IPTSLO. Hence option (d) is the answer.

3. NUMBER CODING:
Numerical code is given or value is assigned to a word. Here the only way to relate the alphabets & numbers is by associating the positions of the letters in the English alphabet. Sometimes any mathematical operation like addition or subtraction can be performed using the position of the letters. Direct coding questions can also be asked.

Direction for example 4: In this question, either numerical code values are assigned to a word or alphabetical code letters are assigned to the numbers.

Example 4: If PAINT is coded as 74128 and EXCEL is coded as 93596, then how would you encode ACCEPT?
(a) 455978
(b) 547978
(c) 554978
(d) 735961

Solution: In the given code the alphabets have been coded as follows:
P     A     I     N     T     E     X     C     L
7     4     1     2     8     9     3     5     6
So, in ACCEPT, A is coded as 4, C as 5, E as 9, P as 7 and T as 8. Hence the correct code is 455978 and therefore the answer is Choice (a).

4. MIXED LETTER/NUMBER CODING:
Some messages are given in the coded language and the code for a particular word or message is asked. To analyze such codes, any two messages bearing a common word are picked up. The common code number are picked up. Proceed in the similar fashion by picking up are possible combination of two, the entire message can be decoded.

Example 5: If ‘tee see pee’ means ‘drink fruit juice’; ‘see kee lee’ means ‘juice is sweet’ and ‘lee ree mee’ means ‘he is intelligent’, which word in that language means ‘swee’?
(a) see
(b) kee
(c) lee
(d) pee

Solution: In the first and second statement, the common word is ‘juice’ and the common code word is ‘see’. So, ‘see’ means ‘juice’.
In the second and third statements, the common word is ‘is’ and the common code is ‘lee’. So ‘lee’ means ‘is’. Thus in the second statement, the remaining word ‘sweet’ is coded as ‘kee’. Hence the answer is choice (b).

Example 6: In a certain code, ‘786’ means ‘study very hard’, ‘958’ means ‘hard work pays’ and ‘645’ means ‘study and work’. Which of the following is the code for ‘very’?
(a) 8
(b) 6
(c) 7
(d) Cannot be determined

Solution: Based on the same logic as used in the above question, the code for ‘very’ can be found out to be ‘7’, hence the answer is choice (c).

5. Coding decoding questions can also be asked in following types, these types were recently asked in SBI Exam and it puzzled many students. But if you read the instructions carefully and practice it, you can easily solve it.

Type: Symbols and Places of Digits

Example 6 : Triangle represents ∆ (1) and circle represents ○ (0). If triangle appears in unit's place then only its value is 0. If it appears in 10's place its value is 1 and when it appears in 100’s place is doubled to 2 like that it continues. Questions based on this
For example:
∆ ○ =0+0=0
∆○∆∆∆= 8+0+2+1+0=11

6.1. How will you represent ‘29’ in this code language?
(a) ∆∆∆○∆∆
(b) ○○∆∆∆○○
(c) ∆∆∆∆∆∆○
(d) ∆○∆○∆○∆
(e) ∆○∆∆○○ ○

Solution: (a)
∆∆∆○∆∆ = 16+8+4+0+1+0=29

6.2. What will be the code for  ○∆○∆○∆○ ?
(a) 12
(b)74
(c)21
(d)16
(e)4

Solution: (c)
○∆○∆○∆○ = 0+16+0+4+0+1+0=21

Type : (Tabular) Coding based on Conditions

Example 7: In each question below is given a group of numbers separated by comma (,). They are followed by four combinations of letters/symbols numbered (1), (2), (3) and (4). You have to find out which of the given combinations correctly represents the group of numbers based on the following coding system and mark the new code of that combination as the answer. If no condition is applicable coding will be according to the table.  If none of the four combinations correctly represents the group of numbers, mark ‘None of the above’, as the answer.

Conditions:
1) If the first number is a prime and the last number is a composite number then their codes are to be interchanged.
2) If both the first and the last number is Prime both are to be coded as $.
3) If both the first and the last letters are Composite and in between there are two or more Prime numbers then Prime numbers are to be coded as A.
4) If the first number is composite and the last number is a prime number, both are to be coded as the code for the composite number.

7.1.  4, 17, 88, 16, 3
(a) #,K,&,$,#
(b) A,K,&,$,#
(c) A,K,&,$,A
(d) $,K,&,$,$
(e) None of the above.

Solution: (a)
In 4,17,88,16,3 the first number is a composite and last is a prime; so codes will be according to condition (4).

7.2.  44, 11, 4, 2, 8
(a) $,S,#,C,$
(b) A, S,#,C,A
(c) B, S,#,C,@
(d) @,S,#,C,B
(e) None of the above

Solution: (d)
Given set of numbers are 44,11,4,2,8, here both first and last numbers are composite and there is only one prime number in between them. Hence no condition will apply and the codes are according to the given symbol table.

Study Notes: Banking and Finance

Today in the study Notes we are Discuss about NABARD

(NABARD)

(National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development) set up as an apex Development Bank by the Government of India with a mandate for facilitating credit flow for promotion and development of agriculture, cottage and village industries etc.

CHAIRMAN

Dr. Harsh Kumar Bhanwala, Chairman, NABARD, is a Post Graduate in Management from IIM, Ahmedabad

HEAD OFFICE-

HISTORY

At the instance of Government of India and Reserve Bank of India (RBI), constituted a committee to review the arrangements for institutional credit for agriculture and rural development (CRAFICARD) on 30 March 1979, under the Chairmanship of Shri B.Sivaraman, former member of Planning Commission, Government of India to review the arrangements for institutional credit for agriculture and rural development.

The Committee, in its interim report, submitted on 28 November 1979, felt the need for a new organisational device for providing undivided attention, forceful direction and pointed focus to the credit problems arising out of integrated rural development and recommended the formation of National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development(NABARD).

The Parliament, through Act,61 of 1981, approved the setting up of NABARD. The bank came into existence on 12 July 1982 by transferring the agricultural credit functions of RBI and refinance functions of the then Agricultural Refinance and Development Corporation (ARDC). NABARD was dedicated to the service of the nation by the late Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi on 05 November 1982.

NABARD was set up with an initial capital of  100 crore. Consequent to the revision in the composition of share capital between Government of India and RBI, the paid up capital as on 31 March 2015, stood at  5000 crore with Government of India holding  4,980 crore (99.60%) and Reserve Bank of India 20.00 crore (0.40%).

It has 336 District Offices across the country, one special cell at Srinagar. It also has 6 training establishments.

MISSION

Regional Rural Banks (RRBs)

Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) were established in 1975 under the provisions of the Ordinance promulgated on the 26th September 1975 and followed by Regional Rural Banks Act, 1976 with a view to develop the rural economy and to create a supplementary channel to the 'Cooperative Credit Structure' with a view to enlarge institutional credit for the rural and agriculture sector.

 

The Government of India, the concerned State Government and the bank, which had sponsored the RRB contributed to the share capital of RRBs in the proportion of 50%, 15% and 35%, respectively. The area of operation of the RRBs is limited to notified few districts in a State. The RRBs mobilise deposits primarily from rural/semi-urban areas and provide loans and advances mostly to small and marginal farmers, agricultural labourers , rural artisans and other segments of priority sector.

The RBI in 2001 constituted a Committee under the Chairmanship of Dr V S Vyas on “Flow of Credit to Agriculture and Related Activities from the Banking System” which examined relevance of RRBs in the rural credit system and the alternatives for making it viable. The consolidation process thus was initiated in the year 2005 as an off-shoot of Dr Vyas Committee Recommendations. First phase of amalgamation was initiated Sponsor Bank-wise within a State in 2005 and the second phase was across the Sponsor banks within a State in 2012. The process was initiated with a view to provide better customer service by having better infrastructure, computerization, experienced work force, common publicity and marketing efforts etc. The amalgamated RRBs also benefit from larger area of operation, enhanced credit exposure limits for high value and diverse banking activities. As a result of amalgamation, number of the RRBs has been reduced from 196 to 64 as on 31 March 2013. The number of branches of RRBs increased to 17856 as on 31 March 2013 covering 635 districts throughout the country.

Sources of Funds

The sources of funds of RRBs comprise of owned fund, deposits, borrowings from NABARD, Sponsor Banks and other sources including SIDBI and National Housing Bank.

Owned Funds

The owned funds of RRBs comprising of share capital, share capital deposits received from the shareholders and the reserves stood at  19304 crore as on 31 March 2013 as against  16462 crore as on 31 March 2012; registering a growth of 17.26%. The increase in owned funds to the tune of  2842 crore was mainly on account of accretion to reserves by the profit making RRBs. The share capital and share capital deposits together amounted to  6174 crore of total owned fund while the balance amount of  13130 crore represented reserves.

Recapitalisation of RRBs

(a) The Chakrabarty Committee reviewed the financial position of all RRBs in 2010 and recommended for recapitalisation of 40 out of 82 RRBs for strengthening their CRAR to the level of 9 per cent by 31 March 2012. According to the Committee, the remaining RRBs are in a position to achieve the desired level of CRAR on their own. Accepting the recommendations of the committee, the GOI along with other shareholders decided to recapitalise the RRBs by infusing funds to the extent of  2200 Crore. The shareholder wise proportion (GOI/Sponsor Banks/State Governments) is 50:35:15 respectively. 

(b) As on 31 March 2013, an amount of  2015.86 crore has been released to 37 RRBs in 20 States. The released amount includes GoI’s contribution of  1003.92 crore, State Govt's contribution of 303.59 crore and Sponsor bank's contribution of  708.35 crore. The recapitalisation is complete in respect of 35 RRBs (5 in Odisha , 3 in MP, 2 in Uttarakhand, 2 in Jharkhand, 2 in Chhatisgarh, 2 in Bihar, 2 in Maharashtra, 3 in West Bengal, 5 in Rajasthan and one each in Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Tripura, J&K, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat & UT of Puducherry). GoI share 7.99 cr. is pending in respect of Manipur Rural Bank. Mizoram State Government has partially released  0.50 crore in respect of Mizoram Rural Bank and  2.80 crore is pending. Two State Govts. viz. UP(2 RRBs), & J&K (1 RRB) have not released any amount in respect of 3 RRBs operating in their states. Out of 35 fully recapitalised RRBs, 3 RRBs viz. Central Madhya Pradesh GB, Manipur Rural Bank and Mizoram GB have not achieved CRAR of 9 per cent as on 31.3.2013.

Deposits

Deposits of RRBs increased from  186336 crore to  211458 crore during the year registering growth rate of 13.48 %. There are Thirty three (33) RRBs having deposits of more than  3000 crore each.

The Regional Rural Banks (Amendment) Bill, 2014

The Regional Rural Banks (Amendment) Bill, 2014 was introduced by the Minister of Finance, Mr. Arun Jaitley, in Lok Sabha on December 18, 2014.  The Bill seeks to amend the Regional Rural Banks Act, 1976. 

The Regional Rural Banks Act, 1976 mainly provides for the incorporation, regulation and winding up of Regional Rural Banks (RRBs). 

Sponsor banks:  The Act provides for RRBs to be sponsored by banks.  These sponsor banks are required to (i) subscribe to the share capital of RRBs, (ii) train their personnel, and (iii) provide managerial and financial assistance for the first five years.  The Bill removes the five year limit, thus allowing such assistance to continue beyond this duration.

Authorised capital:  The Act provides for the authorised capital of each RRB to be Rs five crore.  It does not permit the authorised capital to be reduced below Rs 25 lakh.  The Bill seeks to raise the amount of authorised capital to Rs 2,000 crore and states that it cannot be reduced below Rs one crore.

Issued capital:  The Act allows the central government to specify the capital issued by a RRB, between Rs 25 lakh and Rs one crore.  The Bill requires that the capital issued should be at least Rs one crore.

Shareholding: The Act mandates that of the capital issued by a RRB, 50% shall be held by the central government, 15% by the concerned state government and 35% by the sponsor bank.  The Bill allows RRBs to raise their capital from sources other than the central and state governments, and sponsor banks.  In such a case, the combined shareholding of the central government and the sponsor bank cannot be less than 51%.  Additionally, if the shareholding of the state government in the RRB is reduced below 15%, the central government would have to consult the concerned state government.  

The Bill states that the central government may by notification raise or reduce the limit of shareholding of the central government, state government or the sponsor bank in the RRB. In doing so, the central government may consult the state government and the sponsor bank.  The central government is required to consult the concerned state government when reducing the limit of shareholding of the state government in the RRB.

Board of directors:  The Act specifies the composition of the Board of Directors of the RRB to include a Chairman and directors to be appointed through the central government, NABARD, sponsor bank, Reserve Bank of India, etc.  The Bill states that any person who is a director of an RRB is not eligible to be on the Board of Directors of another RRB.

The Bill also adds a provision for directors to be elected by shareholders based on the total amount of equity share capital issued to such shareholders.  If the equity share capital issued to shareholders is 10% or less, one director shall be elected by such shareholders.  Two directors shall be elected by shareholders where the equity share capital issued to them is from 10% to 25%.  Three directors shall be elected in case of equity share capital issued being 25% or above.  If required, the central government can also appoint an officer to the board of directors to ensure effective functioning of the RRB.

The Act specifies the term of office of a director (excluding the Chairman) to be not more than two years.  The Bill raises this tenure to three years.  The Bill also states that no director can hold office for a total period exceeding six years.

Closure and balancing of books:  As per the Act, the books of a RRB should be closed and balanced as on December 31 every year.  The Bill changes this date to March 31 to bring the Act in uniformity with the financial year.  

At present there are 56 RRBs in India (There is no RRBs working in Goa and Sikkim)

How to fill preferences in IBPS PO – 6?

As many of the students are constantly bombarding the queries related to bank preference for IBPS PO 2016. So, we are providing here the Preference List of the banks based on various criterion which you can use for reference while filling the application form . These data are based on various market research and the choice of the students aspiring for a job in the banking sector.

At first let us provide you the list of participating organisations i.e. those organisations which will be recruiting employees through the IBPS PO 6 Examination.

The table clearly states that 20 banks participating but only 14 out of them have provided the number of vacancies in their banks for PO through IBPS PO 2016 examination, and 6 have not provided any vacancy. But please note that at any stage of the recruitment process, any of those 6 banks can disclose their vacancies.

Now, lets see that what can be the possible criterion for a aspirant to prefer a bank? 

(I) Based on Headquarters of the banks

The headquarters can be one of the criteria for choosing a bank. This is because whatever bank you chose, you will find more number of branches in the state where the headquarter is located. Now if we take the example of Bank of Baroda, it has more number of branches in Gujrat and the probability of getting the posting in Gujrat increases. So you can chose accordingly.

So, we are providing here a list of banks and their headquarters. You can take it as a regional preference that can be near your place. As an example, suppose you reside in UP and you get the posting in Gujrat, then its okay and if you by mistake chose a bank that has a reach in Southern India, then it can be harder for you to accommodate and same is the case for vice-versa. So it's better to review once what you have in mind.

(II) Based on the area of your choice

This choice was available last year, but, this year no such bank having offices only in metro cities is participating in the recruitment process.

(III) Best Choices for North India ‐

States: Delhi, Punjab, UP, UK, J&K, HP, Haryana

1. Bank of baroda
2. Punjab National Bank
3. Oriental Bank of Commerce
4. Allahabad Bank
5. IDBI Bank
6. Punjab & Sind Bank
7. Canara Bank
8. Central Bank of India

(IV) Best choice for East & North East India

States: Odisha, West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand

1. Allahabad Bank
2. Bank of India
3. Bank of Baroda
4. UCO Bank
5. United Bank of India
6. Canara Bank

(V) Best Choice for West & Central India

States: Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Gujarat, MP, Chhattisgarh, Goa

1. Bank of Baroda
2. IDBI Bank
3. Dena Bank
4. Bank of Maharashtra
5. Canara Bank
6. Indian Overseas Bank
7. Corporation Bank
8. Central Bank of India

(VI) Best Choice for South India

States: Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala

1. Andhra Bank
2. Indian Bank
3. Vijaya Bank
4. Indian Overseas Bank
5. Canara Bank
6. Corporation Bank
7. Syndicate Bank

(VII) On the Basis of Banking Mergers and Central Government/PSU's

And now based on the location of Headquarters, number of branches and number of vacancies we are providing here a preference list of banks which can be used by the candidates while filling their form:

Bank of BarodaPunjab National BankCorporation BankBank of IndiaDena BankBank of MaharashtraAllahabad BankCanara BankCentral Bank of IndiaIDBIOriental Bank of CommercePunjab and Sind BankUCOUnion Bank of IndiaUnited Bank of IndiaVijaya BankAndhra BankIndian BankIndian Overseas BankSyndicate Bank

(VIII) In the end, the choice is yours:

After all of this, it is you who has to take the ultimate decision. So do review everything and analyse your choices before filling the form.

Disclaimer: All information given above are based on independent analysis and evaluation made by Bankers Adda. We do not take responsibility for any decision that might be taken, based on this information.
