IIML Interview Date : 4th March
Place : IIML ,Noida Campus
Wat/GD Topic : Is it society or an individual which is responsible for corruption? Plenty of options to speak in the topic and luckily our panel didn't have fish market. Everyone pitched in and put some good points. I started the GD, explained corruption problem, its effect in various sections of society and how society and individual are responsible for it. Quoted e.g. of how anna hazare movement and how delhi police feared AK when he came into power, etc. Pitched in 3-4 times.
Performance: Fair enough.
Interview: Sorry but it was long.
There were two professors, one young(Y) and one old one (O). Young prof called me in.
Me: Good Morning Sir.
O: Good Morning. So Aayush, tell me something special about yourself.
Me: Sir, I have diploma in Japanese and Italian as foreign languages but for Italian, I have not been in touch for five years.
O: Oh really. Then, translate this " Sorry, I am not fully prepared for the interview" .
Me. I can do it in Japanese Sir. Sumimasen, Mensetsu ga chotto....(then was not able to do it, I don't know why...as the young prof was keep telling Sir he will not be able to do that. Was able to do that when I got out of the room, it will be mensetsu no juunbi ga dekinakatta.. could have done that). I told that sir I am not remembering the correct word for preparation and the verb to be used in Italian will be preparare.
He said yeah okay.
O: Which place do you belong to?
O: Indore is also known as Mini Bombay. Why is it so?
Me: Told convincingly and he was satisfied.
Y: you did your graduation from?
Me: IIT-BHU Sir.
O: Allright. What did you studied in Pharmacy. Tell me what is a patent. What is the patent term in India? What is product patent and process patent? Which kind of patents India provide?
Y: Since you have done your graduation in pharmacy and now you are a financial advisor/mutual fund advisor, you have wasted your whole graduation degree.
Me: no Sir, I have not. In fact, this has given me the chance to learn about Finance. Moreover, Finance is a holistic thing and now even R&D department of pharma companies have a separate finance section as there are huge funds involved. It is a value addition to me. Y seemed convinced.
Y: okay. Tell me two things that you would ask from the ministry of finance to uplift the mutual fund industry as mutual fund industry don't have much investors now.
Me: (I was again perplexed as I don't deal much in mutual fund and compete it by ULIPs) tried to tell that 80CC limit should be extended to debt market also. Also, reduce the charges that are imposed. I told him the same that I am right now managing funds through a very unique way and generating 20-30% annualized returns.
Y: Then a long discussion on ULIPs. How do you do that? How are ULIPs better than mutual funds? How are you generating returns? What are loading charges on ULIPs? What are entry/exit loads? Don't you think it is stupidity to buy ULIPs as the insurance is very less?Also, what are direct and indirect taxes? How can one avoid indirect tax? Is increasing the service tax justified?
Me: Answered everything and they were just seeing me with a nod.
Y: Okay. So for sensex to go from 30k to 40k, what steps the government should take?
Me: Sir, the govn is already taking steps and on the right way like boosting the manufacturing sector.
Y: (Fully on to me) No, I am not convinced with that. Manufacturing cannot do anything.
Me: Infact Sir, manufacturing is the only way with which India can show its strength now. China did it. Industralized nations initially were all mfg nations.
Y: No, Leave China. Tell me a single manufacturing industry in India which is good.
Me: Sir, pharma only. It is doing very good and earns India large number of exports. Take Sun pharma. It had a name but no one thought it would buy Ranbaxy but that buy has taken it to a different level.
Y: I don't think so Sun pharma did a good thing to buy Ranbaxy. Daiichi sold it at a loss and you are buying that.
Me: Sir, I believe that it was a very strategic decision making by Sun. The huge presence of Ranbaxy in the American and Latin American region has opened the market for Sun there+ all the drug portfolio of Ranbaxy it has got in cheap.
(Changed the topic)
Y: Tell me some historical place in North-east.
Me: Sir new Jalpaigudi. It has toy train.
Y: Okay. Tell me one historical place in Southern India.
Me: Sir, Sravanbelagola in Karnataka where there is world's largest statue to bhagwaan Bahubali ji.
Y: And? Me: Sir, Rameshwaram, Madurai.
Y: Do you know Pondicherry.
Me: Yes Sir. It is also. Was under foreign colony for long time.
O: Aayush, what is your view on life?
Me: Sir, I believe that life is like whatever you gain from it you return it back to your society, your people. If you gain knowledge, you have to give it back...etc.etc. (A discussion on scholarships and money)
O: How important is money for you? Do you believe in ethics? What if in the situation where you have to sacrifice your integrity, honesty? Will you do that?
O: Aayush do you think that today's youth is digressing from its purpose and is indulged into some activities which are not fruitful (something like that).
Me. Yes sir and put forward my views on that. He was carefully listening and I put one point where Indian media is not promoting Indian culture, which I believe is one of the best. I was fully exhausted by then. He told me to give an example. I took a deep breath and told sir, may I take my time. He told sure but within 10 seconds he told time up :P.
O&Y: Thank you.
O: brilliant efforts.
Me: (while leaving) Thank You Sir.
For the last ques also, there were so many points that started rushing in my mind when I came out of interview. Don't know why it happens?
