Thank you BA for the support.
It was my first interview. I was a little bit nervous. I arrived at the centre at 12.15 pm. At 12.45pm they let us go in. There were 25 candidates in a batch. At the time of documents verification they gave us a sheet of paper to which a printed sheet was attached. My sheet contained a paragraph about Jayaprakash Narayan. It was in odia (regional language). After documents verification they sent us in batches to the 4th floor. My serial number was 10. My turn came at 3.35pm. I entered the room.

There was an oval shaped table. I asked may I come in sir. But madam was sitting close to the door.
There were 4 male members and 1 female member in the panel.

M1: yes, come in, come in.
Me: good morning, madam (mistake)
Soon I realised. And after a second of pause I said good afternoon sirs.(I got more nervous because I made a mistake at the entry)
