I had my interview yesterday at Mumbai ( Bank of Maharashtra, Bandra East). I was assigned panel IV for interview in the afternoon shift. I reached the venue and was made to wait till 3:30 pm. Then I was called for document verification which went on smoothly. I was required to produce my experience letters, all semester marksheets, degree certificates, Photo ID and Application Print out. They called me for interview by 4:30 pm and was last in my slot. I opened the door without making any noise and glanced inside seeking permission to come in. They called me in. There we four panelist which included 3 gentlemen and a lady. I greeted the lady first and gentlemen later with a smile. They all greeted back. They asked me to sit, I sat and thanked them for offering a seat. Then the interview began. M3- So Bhanu, what does your name mean ( He asked me in hindi, bhanu ka kya matlab hota hai?) Me- I replied in Hindi that my name means Sun but Bhanupriya Means Laxmi. I saw him noting down something in his notebook. M2- You have done your graduation in Chemistry and done post graduation in Finance, why so? Me- I replied I received no guidance as a child but as time went by I started to realize that I am more inclined towards managerial science. And hence I took the decision to pursue management as masters. M2- You have more than two years of work ex in private banks. Why do you want to switch to public sector banks. Me- I am looking forward for working with public sector banks as they can provide me with a fair and decent chance to grow. They emphasize on knowledge building through exams like JAIIB, CAIIB. Promotion process are transparent where as same is almost absent in private banks. Also work environment is better as compared to private counterparts be it timing or leave policy. M2 then tossed a technical question. He asked me about CASA. Me- CASA is the bread and butter of banking industry. It is the day end balance of all savings and current accounts in the bank. The stronger the casa is, the more is the lending capacity of the bank. M2- But dont you think that cost of funds is more. The operational cost in serving these accounts is much more than the interest they earn. ( It was followed by a very long elaboration) Me- I understand sir. But still I believe that the interest income of banks is more than operational expenses. Economies of Scale comes into effect. A branch which serves 100 accounts with 3 people can be used for servicing 300 accounts. So if we can increase the CASA base, banks will grow stronger. Operational costs will come down if we serve a larger base. Hence cost of funds will come down. ( I think he was not convinced but I showed no sign of losing my confidence) M3- What is KYC? ( Asked in hindi) Me- Documents which we collect from customer regarding his identity. ( I thought by replying know your customer, he will say that he already knows the full form so I went ahead with details, then he asked the full form. I replied Know Your Customer") M3- What all documents can be used for KYC Me- Replied. M3- You know about AML? Me- Anti Money Laundering. M3- What is it? Me- It is an act used to prevent and track suspicious transactions. M3- What are suspicious transactions. Me- Transactions of Rs 10 lac or more of which the source of funds are unknown. M3- Unknown? Me- Illegitimate ( he was trying to hint me..then I gave the answer terrorist activities) Then he looked convinced. M3- If we post you into any interior location, will you be able to go? Me- Definitely Sir. And thats why I have come here. M3- How will your husband be able to live here ? ( He smiled and asked) Me- He can get a maid to cook food. ( I smiled and then everyone laughed). M2 to lady panelist- Aap kuchh poochna chahte ho ? ( You want to ask something?) She was going through my documents and asked what my designation " Product Support Executive" Meant. Me- Replied. M4- Do private banks give no weight age to JAIIB CAIIB? Me- No Ma'm. Not at all. Sales is of prime importance there. Then they thanked me and I smiled and thanked them instead. and left the room and closed the door. What do you think friends about the interview. Do let me know.

IBPS PO III Interview Experience - Brajesh Name : Brajesh Thalakoti Education : B.Tech EEE (2013 Pass out) Date : 02-01-2014 Venue : Andhra Bank Head office, Pattabhi Bhavan , Saifabad.

Which branch? Me: EEE sir, Electrical and Electronics. M3: Do you read news paper? Me: Yes sir. M3: What are today’s news? Me: India has cancelled Augusta-Westland deal. M2: Why did they cancel? Me: I din’t went through In detail sir. M3: Some one might have told you headlines.. Me: No sir, I read The Hindu, as I’m coming from warangal today, I dint get into detail. M2: Ok. Tell me yesterday’s news? Me: Editorial on Arawind Kejriwal’s water promise, he promised to give 700litres and implemented it by giving 666liters for house hold having pipe connection. M3: Do you think is it correct? Me: yes sir, but he had promised only to those who have connection, but didn’t take into consideration about other people. M3: But, how can he give water without pipe connection? Me: Yes sir but he should improve network in those areas such that all people will be able to receive water, also his condition that whoever uses more water should pay amount for the total water used is also good because that inculcates saving habit. M3: Ok, What other promises did he fulfill? Me: To decrease power tariff by 50% and implemented it. M3: Do you think it is correct? Me: Yes sir, it is correct. M3: Who will pay the remaining subsidized amount? Me: State govt. It’s Tax payers money. M3: How this scheme is correct then? For example per unit cost of 6/- is fixed na? Mean while he got a call on his mobile and informed M2 to follow. Me: Sir, per unit cost is fixed depending upon cost of production, distribution and wages all taking into consideration, the distribution companies have shown irregularities in those, showed high costs thereby increased per unit cost. So he approached CAG, and they accepted to audit them, so after audit per unit cost will be decreased and burden will not be on tax payers. M2: Ok. In rural areas we are giving loans to agriculture and they are not repaying and we are incurring losses. Should we stop lending them? Me: No sir, we shouldn’t stop lending, because agriculture is priority sector and it is back bone of our country, so we shouldn’t stop lending them, they are unable to repay because of droughts and floods. M3: Don’t you think there are willful defaulters? Me: Yes sir, some may be. M3: Then we should stop lending to agriculture? Me: No, sir, because of some willful defaulters we shouldn’t stop lending to whole agriculture as it is priority sector, but willful defaulters should be stringently punished. M2: Ok, what is priority sector? Me: It means which fulfill basic human needs and essential one’s and agriculture, education, micro enterprises come under priority sector. M2: Who is an NRI? Me: NRI means Non Resident Indian. He may be a indian person living in a foreign country or indian origin person born in foreign country…Sorry sir I was not sure. M1,M2: Ok… M2: Recently rupee value has depreciated why? Me: Due to Current Account Deficit. M2: What Is Current Account Deficit? Me: The difference in exports and imports for example we import gold and crude oil, we have to pay them in dollars and our foreign exchange reserves are decreasing and we have to buy dollar from outside, so there will be demand for them thereby increasing their value and subsequently decreasing rupee as it will become costlier to buy dollar. M2: Ok..Do you know about food security bill? Me: Yes sir, it gives food security to 67% of the indian people of them 75% are rural and 50% are urban. In this year some 120000 crores are kept aside for their incremental cost. Now they are asking M4 to ask. M4: What’s your specialization? Me: EEE sir, M4: You are B.tech. Then why did you choose banking? Me: Sir, it all started when I was in B.Tech 3rd year, I developed interest towards banking and finance, so I thought MBA in finance will help me and prepared for MBA entrance exams for an year, but due to changed financial circumstances I have to take up job, anyway after joining job I will join an MBA degree through distance education so that I can fulfill my interest. M3: Your name is Brajesh. Are you from AP only? What is meaning of your name? Me: Im from AP only sir, it is one of the many names of Lord Krishna. M3: Ok, You are from Warangal. What are famous places in Warangal?

There were 4 person in the panel. 2 Aged, 1 mid age and one woman. She didn't asked me anything but she and mid age person were writing something continuously. Both of the old men only in the panel did the questioning part. Me: Good Morning All of you sirs and Ma'm. O1: So Mr. Diwakar Kothari, Let us all know about you, your family background and educational achievements. Me: After introducing myself completely I elaborated Educational qualifications and Family background step by step as they requested. O2: Your father & brother are in bank. Any special thing about those banks ? Me: PNB is the first Indian bank established in 1895 and is the one of the largest banks in India. And Bank OF baroda is the india's international bank having the maximum numbers of overseas branches by any nationalized bank. And both of the banks are in the top5 on the basis of their total assets. O1: Good, You know the benefits of having banks in economy? Me: yes sir. Because of the banks in india people now have a habit of saving, with the help of that money banks lend money to those people and firms who need it at thier Interest rate. Living standard of people rises. and Because of this banks maintain a large amount of money to invest it at RBI Resulting the economy to get strengthen . M1: What is the benefits of Rural branches of any banks ? Me: As us having urban needs, rural branches fulfill the needs of farmer or the people involved in micro and small business field. they take deposits there and then use that money to lend loans to the farmers for their various kinds of agricultural needs. O2: Tell us about the RBI in brief. Me: RBI was establised in 1935 under Reserve bank of india act 1934. After Independence in 1949 it became the nationalized bank and gained the power to control regulate all the banks and to maintain the money flow in the market by revising the monetary policy time by time. O1: what happens in Monetary policy? Me: Sir, RBI has to maintain the money flow in the market. Whenever the amount of money increases in the market, RBI Sell govt securities to the banks. Due to that excess money moves to the RBI when banks buy them. Same when its amount decreases then RBI purchase it from banks. O2: RBI Purchases those securities, the rate at which it happens, what do we call it? Me: Repo Rate sir. O1: You know what is the repo rate now ? Me: Yes sir, its 7.75 % now. Woman and the mid aged man gave a look to each other and both of the old men joined them and with a smile the most aged person told me "ab aap ja sakte hain diwakar ji" Me: "Thank you very much sir and ma'm. It's been really nice talking to you" My Suggestions : So I used only those terms in the interview which I already knew. Never use any word whose meaning you can't clarify in front of them. Never shoot guess answers at them. Smile, even if you don't know the answer. Just simply say " I don't know " rather than confusing with wrong answer to show them your false confidence. Be confident about your rights and honest about what you don't know. And all the best to all of you.
