Interview & GD Experience – BOB Manipal 2017

Hello and welcome to exampundit. Here is an Interview Experience shared by our follower “Yet another aspirant” of BOB Manipal 2017.

my interview was scheduled in ‘sarvodaya hotel’,patna as it is my hometown.

i was called at 2 pm but i reached at 1 pm (yet the last one to arrive).

after successful fingerprint and document verification our group of 8 members(1 was absent and 1 was not allowed due to fingerprint mismatch) was called for group discussion.

firstly we were all told to introduce ourselves one by one in short.(there was no language barrier we were free to speak either in hindi or english)

then we were given the topic ‘agricultural loan waiver is good or bad?’

we were given 1 minute to write on the topic and 1 minute to share our points individually. then the open discussion started.

i was against farm loan waiver (thanks to my regular editorial reading i had many points to share)

as expected gd became a fish market from starting so i decided to pull myself back . i attempted to speak 12-13 times and was successful 4 times. in my final attempt i kind of summarised the whole discussion where i told that there are 2 solutions and both should be implemented simultaneously .
1- for short term the interest rate should be further decreased and time period should be increased for those who are really in need of it.
2- for long term agricultural productivity should be increased with use of latest international technology so that we do not face such problem in future.(i knew that this is my last chance to speak so i did not want to waste it).

they were quite impressed with me even when i neither started the gd concluded it and they told the person who concluded that he should have included my points.

after gd we were called for personal interview by the same panel.(all conversation in hindi)
