Interview Reached the venue by 12 pm and I was the first person to get my biometric and certificate verification done , went cool. They are friendly . My serial no was 17 , so thought it would take around 6 pm to complete my interview , but luckily they called not by serial no. but by some random order and I was given no. 4 .

My turn exactly 3 pm . Entered the room , smiled and wished them.

Total members : 5 ( 4 Male , 1 female )

I wish them , they offered to sit , thanked them and sat . I was abt to introduce myself with all the stuff I prepared but then asked M1

M1 : So, whats ur name ?

M3 : After demonitisation though initially there was some problm like money shortage n all , it settled and everyone feel comfortable . whats the reason ?

M3 : Ok , what are the major exports and imports of India ?

M2 : Why are u saying small currencies , u haven’t said UK, Japan, China currencies ..
Me : Sorry sir , i didn’t recall that time and answered those 3 currencies correctly and they felt ok, good.

F1 : She wasn’t asking just observing me .

M4 : He seemed like asking questions like now and then , just once I think that too not a question , just supporting remaining panel members’ questions .

M1 : He gave me a water bottle and asked  to market it .
Me : Little annoyed, but did my best .

M1 : These days po is no less than sales executive so i ve asked u to market it , most of u ppl are having a myth dat bank po is just a deskjob like we can work simply sitting in the bank .
