of the school where we had to sit in front of our panel .. they were calling
the candidates one by one for documents verification and then the interviews
subsequently .. I was the last candidate of my panel so i was called at around
12 pm for the documents verification .. and around 10 min. after documents
verification i was called for the interview ..

Disclaimer – There was not even a single banking related
question that was asked to me .. 😀 😀  
I Entered the room and greeted them and was asked to sit

of waiting to shower the questions related to politics .. and i was expecting

And then there were several other religious questions
asked whom mostly i did answer .. and after kind of getting almost all the
questions answered that too in a very confident way .. they said that’s all
aditya good luck 🙂

So this is how my interview went and by the grace of god
i was really very confident while answering all of the question .. 
My advice would be that don’t panic or do any extra effort
for interview .. Just go with the honesty and confidence .. They can ask u
anything .. Just keep yourself updated about the surroundings u live .. most
probably u will be asked about your hobbies or interests , strengths etc .. so
only name those things in which u have good knowledge .. yes good gk, Knowledge of
banking and good communication skills can be an added advantage but Remember
confidence and eye contact is must !!
