Got asked about family, why I did not get IIT in spite of having good marks in Boards, why my CGPA is lower than Board marks. He was just checking whether I get really uncomfortable. If you have cleared the technical round, this won’t be much of a hurdle.


Got selected for the job role. A HR interaction took place after selection, where they ensured whether I am comfortable with relocation and travelling often.
