Hi, every one I am done wid GE and interview and my venue was Hyderabad. I had my shift at 10 AM. Document verification went through fine and some of the candidates did not have proper caste certificate format so they were asked to give an undertaking for that.The Officials were very co operative.

GD Topic-  “Should agriculture sector be given top priority or manufacturing sector for the growth of our nation?”.

It was a good experience in the beginning but it turned into a fish market; everyone was cutting off everyone and it got messy but at last, we all got to a conclusion. I spoke about 3-4 times. The people there told us that it is a misconception that the person who speaks first or last gets more marks. They told us they were just there to check our skills. Then we were given another task. 

Group Exercise –  What should be done to acheive food surplus?

A few of the key tasks among the list were: impose fine on wastage, technology, reduction of exports, corporatization etc. It didn’t go through fine. We gave 2 priorities only. After the round was over they appreciated us and told that it was one of the best GDs they have seen and told a panelist told us that he is happy as he felt that India’s future will be great on listening to our words.
