BOB Interview Experience: Amit Kumar Singh
Today we are sharing the GD & PI experience of Bank of Baroda of one of our Aspirant- Amit Kumar Singh who had given his GD & PI on Jul 10 in Lucknow. Below is his experience:
My GD/PI is as follows:
My GD/PI was on 10th July, 2017 at Baroda House, Lucknow at 9:30 AM. On that day, it was heavy rain. So, one of my friend booked OLA for me. It was my first GD/PI in any public sector bank, but I was very excited to give my GD/PI. I wear black coat, black pant, white shirt and black tie. I thanked God, My Parents, Friends and Teachers for being with me and guiding me always in my Journey. Before entering, I touched the feet of Baroda House.
First process is document verification. After that, I allotted serial No. 12. I was in second group. There were 8 students in each group. I was really amazed after knowing that 2 students were absent in my group. At 11:30 AM, one Maám instructed us to stand by serial number. Then, we entered into GD room.
The GD topic for us is: “Is it ethical for doctors to go for a strike or not?” They gave 2 minutes to think and prepare. After they rang a bell, I initiated the GD. I discussed with group members, not with panel. Though it was difficult to address the group because everyone was sitting in a straight line. I tell both advantages & disadvantages. I listened very carefully what others say about the topic. At the end, I gave conclusion and say thank you to panel. Then, everyone say thank you and go out of the GD room. I was satisfied with GD. Some senior students say that you rock the GD and surely you got highest marks among all, probably 45 marks out of 50.
Then time came for PI. My PI is as follows:
Me: Please may I come in?
F2: Yes please.
I forget to say good morning. Chairman say please have a seat. I say thank you sir. But after sitting, I immediately wished all good morning Ma’am, good morning sirs.
F1: Tell me something about yourself?
F2: What is banking?
F2: What are the basic facilities provided by banks?
F2: Apart from these two facilities, what are the other facilities provided by banks?
I say sorry maam, I don’t remember right now. She replied aap bata sakte hai, take 4 or 5 seconds to think. I take the permission, can I explain in hindi. She replied yaa sure. Then, i answered correctly.
F2: What do you mean by customer services?
F2: Can you give one example?
I explain with example.
M3: What is retail banking?
Sorry sir, I don’t remember right now. Ok, No Problem.
M3: What is MSME?
I tell only full form and its union minister.
M3: isme kon kon se sectors aate hai? (Which of the sectors comes in it?)
I tell small and marginal farmers. He asked Are you sure? I replied, yes sir. He asked arey ye nahi hota hai. phir maine kaha sir isme 2 sectors aur aate hai, priority sector lending and micro sectors. phir unhone chairman se bola ki ab aap puchiye.
M4: Why you join B.tech?
I answered in hindi, because I already took a permission to speak in hindi.
M4: Why not BSNL or ONGC, why only bank?
I answered in hindi.
M4: Tell me 2 types of antenna?
Sorry sir, I don’t remember right now.
Ok you can go now.
As I stand from chair, F2 asked me, Amit what does your father do?
After that I left the room.
Overall, I think it was fine. No situational, conditional or economy question. Hope for the best. Lets see what happen!!
All the Best to all the Candidates who are about to give the GD & PI for the same.
Thank you Team BSC.
