Suggestions : I would like to suggest all the aspirants to read news papers and discuss Topics with you seniors, family and friends. I really wanna thank and Akash Gautam for his blog. These people have given platform for Banking aspirants to come and share their experiences. Interviewers are really friendly if you are confident. They just want to see your patience and the way you react to their questions. Be patient and Prepare well about Yourself and be prepared because they will ask questions from your life and experiences only.

We are very thankful to Shelza Khurana on behalf of our readers and team members for her great contribution and analysis. We wish her great success in her interview.
