I am excited as well as nervous too for the interview; I leave the home at 10:30 a.m. and reached the venue by 11:00 a.m., they ask me to wait near the reception, after 15- 20 minutes they called us for Documents Verification.

The verification process was very strict for OBC aspirants; few candidates are sent back while some asked to come next day or after 3 days with proper documents and their interviews will be rescheduled.
