Me-I answered it well
M2-What is commercial banking?

M3-Your father is not a good branch manager! How do you react to this.
M1-As banks are opened for profit motives,should banks open branches at rural areas
Me-I answered it well
M3-They asked about my name Sabya—I knew only 2 arjun and gandiv
M3-Again asked me if i called you as falguni samal how would you react to this.
Me-I said though the name sounds like female centric but beautiful name,i should definitely think why my father mother miss this name…they laughed.
M3-Why banking job?
M3-Why clerical job?
Me- I answered it gracefully.
Once they said ok you may go now then suddenly they asked me to sit down and M2 made me understand that in practical life you may feel dejected finding undergraduates and graduates in working place then he told me after 2 years you can take promotions.
Then M1 asked me if we give you job and you left to join SBI
Me-I told sir i have not applied for SBI Then M1 said Mr samal nice to talk to you.
I do not know what will happen but i feel little bit satisfied…so one thing i feel if you answer confidently they are definitely going to ask many questions but remain calm.Please friends tell what is my chance. As in IOB they told me best of luck but result is zero.So i am apprehensive this time. So share your thoughts
I wish you all the best
