sponsored links

Name : Devinder Babool

Qualification : B.Tech Electrical

Venue : PNB Circle Office, Ludhiana

Time : 8:30 AM, Panel-III

Hi, I am Devinder Babool from Amritsar, Punjab. I would like to share my interview experience held on 9th Feb, 2015 at PNB Circle Office, Ludhiana, Punjab. I reached the venue at around 8 AM. They allowed us to enter at 8:30 AM. There on all the candidates were segregated on the basis of panel number. Mine was Panel-III, so I was directed to go to third floor of the building.

Document checking began after half an hour. They were very strict about the document verification. So, I would suggest you must take each and every certificate whether mentioned or not and specially the category certificates, and mark sheets of all the semester of your degree. I was among the first five candidates they chose for document verification. It took about an hour or so for full document verification and then I was instructed to sit and wait for my interview. Meanwhile they gave everyone a piece of paper and told us to write few lines in local language i.e. Punjabi about anything. :D

Finally my turn came around 11:45 am. So, here comes the moment I was waiting for so long..
I gently pushed the door and asked, May I come in Sir??
Panel members: Hanji, yes come in Beta…

There were total 5 panel members. (4 Male, 1 Female) All appeared to be retired personalities.
 I stood for a moment, and then they asked me to have your seat.
Me: Thank you, Sir.
(Whole interview went in local language i.e. Punjabi plus mixture of Hindi and English)
M1: Kitho aye ho Devinder ji? (From where you have come?)
Me: Amritsar, Sir.
M2: Gave me a newspaper and told me to read one paragraph.
Me: read it.. (it was in local language)
M1: asked me about my hobbies which I mentioned on the paper.
Me: Told listening music…
M1: Which kind of music?
Me: Mood boosting songs :D here the comedy started :P
All started laughing.. Bhai yeh mood boosting songs konse hote hai ji.. (which kind of songs are these?)
Me: haha told Sir, which could cheer you up during our low times..
M2: To beta koi aise b songs hote hai jo khushi se dukhi kr de..? :D
Me: I said yes sir hote hai, but who want to be sad, everybody wants to be happy.
Everybody started laughing and said “han yeh bhi bat bilkul sahi hai, dukhi kon hona chahta” (agreed saying, well you’ re right who wants to be sad, everybody wants to be happy)
M1: you have completed your graduation in 2013, so what you’ve been doing since then?
Me: Sir, I met with an accident in Dec 2013, it took 2-3 months for me to recover and after that I worked as Site engg. For L&T project that was under my Dad at that time for 1 year on contract basis.
Then suddenly M2 asked me: Beta tumhari qualification to B.Tech Electrical hai aur ap yaha bank k interview me, muje yeh chakar samjayo? (Your qualification is B.Tech Electrical and then why are you appearing for bank interview?)
Me: I told Sir, Mera Electrical me shuru se interest nai tha.. Unfortunately I got Electrical trade according to my rank in AIEEE that time and moreover I was the 1st one from my family to persue a Degree so there was no one to guide me which branch to choose, so my dad being in this department told me to go for electrical. So, I always wanted to change my field after my graduation and I took guidance of my uncle who motivated me to go for career in Banking as it is one of the fastest growing sector in India with more stable growth and job security.
M1: You have done graduation from such a reputed colg. Of India, then you can get placed at reputed companies like TCS, Infosys Accenture etc.. Will you leave bank job then?
Me: No, Sir I won’t.
M1 insisted suppose you got selected and they are offering handsome package then?
Me: Even then I won’t.  Moreover I have less percentage(55.4%) in my graduation and their criteria is always 60% + so that’s why. (looked satisfied)
Now the real interview started J
M1: What is the term for Rajya sabha member and how it’s elected?
Me: Sorry, Sir I don’t know ( as I was not fully sure )
M1 again: How about lok sabha?
Me: Again Sorry sir, I don’t know  L
M2: Who is the Home Minister of Punjab?
Me: I tried to remember but coudnt recall at that time so I said Sorry Sir I don’t know that either.
M3 to Both M1 and M2: smiling said I think he is not interested in Politics
Me: Smiling said Yes sir, I don’t follow politics much only ther person in news.
They all said very politely, Don’t worry, koi bat nahi hum kuch aur puch lete hai (don’t worry, we’ll ask something else)
M4: Beta apne KYC norms k bare me suna hai? Kya hote hai yeh? ( Have you heard about KYC norms, what are they?)
Me: explained with all details (happy with my ans)
M2: What is PMJDY?
Me: Answered
Then asked me about Financial Inclusion as I mentioned PMJDY was a initiative of Financial Inclusion.
Answered it confidently with all facts and figures.
M1: What is inflation and how it is controlled?
Me: Answered as I prepared it.
M3: What is Wi-Fi?
Me: Explained
M3: Internet to chelate hoge? Kya ky surf krte ho? (what do you surf on internet?)
Me: I said sir I surf various websites like I did all my preparation from the websites I follow like that provide me all the current news and every detail and preparation material for exams. (he was very happy to know)
M1: Beta you have a good knowledge of banking so why clerical cadre then?
Me: Sir, I have made many mistake in my life and learned a lot from them. Like I mere degree time par basics weak reh gaye the to I wasn’t able to succeed in my studies. So mai bank me b basic se start krna chahta hu taaki age jaakar badi position par koi pareshani na aye muje.
(everyone smiled and nodded)
M1: Very good beta, All the best, you can go now.. J
F1 didn’t asked me any questions, she was just observing me the whole time.
Me: Thank you sir and left the room. J

My interview took around 10-12 mins. (longest of all my panel), other usually took 5-7 mins.
Hope it helps.
Do comment and tell me how my interview went.
All the best to everyone who are going to have interviews in coming days. May god bless you J

All the best to all of u ..
