Group Discussion is more a technique than a conventional test. In fact, it is one of the most important and popular techniques being used in a number of Personality Tests. Conducted as a screening test, the mains aim of Group Discussion is to screen the candidates on the basis of their verbal and analytical skills.

The topics in group discussion range from current affairs to topic of philosophical value. Some of the examples of Topics in Group Discussion are:
Personal Interview is conducted to know about the candidates over a more personal note. Questions are basic and no surprises take place in the interview. Here is an excerpt about Interview experience of Garima Bharti, 99.99% in CAT 2014.
Ans. Born and brought up in Delhi. Final year of graduation. NSS Volunteer – social involvement. Learning Bharatnatyam for seven years. Talked about my two internships – Delhi Metro and gas power plant.
Ans. Combined cycle. Two gas and one steam.
Ans. I don’t know.
Ans. The bill charges 5 rs per unit. So must be around 3-4 rs per unit.
Ans. Me: don’t know exactly but In the case of gas turbine, the process is faster due to instant combustion. So, probably gas turbine.

Ans. Freedom of speech is a subset of expression. It refers to only verbal expression. Expression is a broader term and can be through variety of means like cartoons, dance, paintings. Opinions are thoughts, they may or may not be expressed.
Ans. No. there should not be limits. But people must be made aware that they should use their rights responsibly.
Ans. we as a society learn from our mistakes. And I think this message is clear now.
Ans. No. it is not practical because Delhi is very small geographically and will not be financially sustainable if made a state. Moreover, lot of central government machinery is in Delhi like the MPs and foreign dignitaries visiting. Hence, Centre must have the power to control them.
There are two main reasons why Delhi people want statehood. One is law and order i.e the Delhi police is not answerable to Delhi CM. and land issue – state gov. needs permission from centre on land usage. DDA is not under state gov.
I think there are better ways to resolve these. Regarding police, one department of police can be made to report to CM. and regarding land- more representation of state in DDA and already some steps have been taken in this direction.
Ans. Thankyou sir, this one is fine. (picked a toffee and went)
