Round 3:Technical HR 1
Interviewer asked lots of questions from different domain. For me he asked me two solve two codes , codes were easy. One was to count the frequency of character in a given string, other was to check whether the given IP address is valid or not. Then he switched to Web Services, then asked about DBMS, then some web development related questions, asked about software development lifecycle. This interview went for approx. 1 hour.
Round 4:Technical HR 2
This was easy, based on the interview 1, whatever is your strong domain, they will ask questions from your strong domain only. This interview went for 20min.

HR was very friendly, tell him everything frankly and do not lie.
5 out of 27 made till final HR.
