Good discussion. Lasted for around 15 minutes. No fish market. Everyone got a chance to speak. Well summarized.

Little discussion over my family background
Expected to be aware of everything around you.
Asked for the adjacent colleges of DU (motilal nehru and ramlal anand) (cudn't giv this answer) and also mind it whether you say college or university
. They were very particular about every term you speak. Try not to say random stuff.
P1: What have you prepared for this interview?
M: Nothing much. General awareness just (Didnt wanted to get grilled on economics stuff). Told them about the FB group ....from where I went through last year's experiences. Got grilled again you didn't made any effort to go through the institute you are going to appear by P2.
Did a little beating around the bush but admitted that I didnt put much effort from myself.
P1: questions on general awareness like finance minister, prime minister and all of india. Asked about the lieutenant governor of delhi (cudn't answer this 😠 they waited for sometime for me to come up with the answer but I didn't knew the answer) Chatted a little on arvind kejriwal.

P2: Random stuff on general awareness like recently we celebrated women's day. when and also some television stuff that telecast that day?
P1: What do you know of RBI?

M: Said I like to keep my hands at everyfield.
P2: got a lecture by P2 on why one should not only specialize but also have an overall development in every field.
