FIRST ROUND STARTED AT 10.30 AND RESULTS WERE ANNOUNCED AT 1.30 AND GD STARTED BY 2PM

2) GROUP DISCUSSION:

Totally out of 500 attended only 30 were short listed for GD and 10 in each batch so from GD 28 of them advanced to next round.

In GD for each and every batch there were 3 to 4 panels for us 3 panels were there.. they r helping and friendly

I was in the 3rd batch and our GD topic was “ENGINEERS SHOULD ACCEPT JOBS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES OR NOT”

To every ones surprise all 10 from my 3rd batch got thro to the next round AND 28 from tis advanced to TECH+HR single round since members were minimum and they had to finish their recruitment process in a single day so only like tis.. GD results came out by 3.30..


3) TECH+HR:

In tech+hr there were five rooms each consisted of two panels I got the room 1 where a gent and a lady were there as a panel, here s d interview wit tem:
