Interview Experience
The questions asked were from basic electronics which encompassed DSP, Communication Systems, DSD, and Microprocessors. A few questions were from the final year project and they asked how I could apply that in a Power plant. They asked about power grids and power distribution but I said that being a electronics student I do not have much knowledge of such power systems. Then questions were from latest trends of development in communication fields and what is 3G, GPS, GSM and all.It was a easy interview with highly placed and experienced persons. Although I was tensed at first while entering they asked me to feel comfortable and started with simple questions first which anybody can answer which helped me to build up some confidence. Later they carried on with some more technical questions and HR questions.Overall it was a nice experience to sit in front of a panel of seven highly placed officials and answering to their questions.
Round 3

Interview Experience
The HR person was asking the same question to almost everyone, that is "Tell me about your family background?".

      The interview process is pre selection based on CGPA basis. They wont give much importance to your CGPA in the
      interview. Interview performance alone matters in the selection. Maintain proper dress code, show them how a
      Professional student looks like and get a good impression. In case of PSU's they observe each n every aspect including your facial expressions etc. You need not tell all questions correctly, but try to answer those questions with a Supportive reason. If you don't know the question, don't become nervous.. just tell them that I don't have idea on the topic. Make sure that you are well equipped in at least two subjects. As far as my self is considered I have studied Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer and IC engines. I have also referred the Projects whatever I have executed. Before leaving they have given a compliment to mine that "You have good academic background".

They made us comfortable to talk in either Hindi or English.In fact they cracked few jokes as well in front of students to make them feel comfortable.
