This was my 1st bank interview.
Reached there by 12:45. 3 ladies were sitting at diace for document verification .Gave me 1 form to fill. I filled it quickly and arranged my documents in the order they had asked.
Then 1 lady called my name for verification, checked all my documents by just giving a look on originals. She said aahh u r just 22 and you wd become a PO. Thats cool!! Ya but she focused on matching my signature from my written xam admit card... :) Done with all verification, she was very helpful as i did not have xerox of passing certi of 10th, 12th, she send a peon to get it done for me.
Then after lunch, we were given batch no. to stick on our pockets. At 2:30 we were called for GD. Students were divided in 10 member grp. In the panel there were 5 person. 1 lady, 3 Chief manager and 1 representative from Manipal University. He gave us topic- "Financial Inclusion- A future prospect or a social obligation "
All were stunned on listening the topic. We got 2 min. to jord down points on our pads. All spoke for 2 min individually and a discussion happened for another 10 min. Overall it was good and panel appreciated my views.
