Interview & Group Discussion Preparation for PGCIL

How do I prepare for it?

Power Grid Corporation (PGCIL) is one of the most reputed Maharatna PSU in India and a dream company for many technocrats. Getting the interview call from such a reputed PSU is a matter of great pride for candidates, as a very high rank is needed to get an interview and group discussion (GD) call from PGC. Interviews and GD are very important steps for the final selection in the company.

The interview consists of two main components. HR questions and technical questions based upon practical exposure are asked in the interview. HR questions are based on your profile, CV and bio-data and consist of your academic and personal background. There are questions related to PGC as well. Referring to the PGC website is very important for answering the questions. Many times, questions are asked related to your B. Tech. Or M.Tech. projects, internships, job experiences, etc. If you have any career gap, then questions will be asked to you related to those as well. Why only PGC was asked is a very important question.
As far as group discussion (GD) is concerned, it is very crucial and often eliminating in nature. If you don’t score above the minimum mark (normally 40%), then you may get eliminated from the process. Though GD is not difficult there is a need to practice these very well. YourPedia provides the best platform for students to practice the GD and prepare really well for the expected topics which may be provided for GD. With the practice of a couple of GD sessions online with mentors of YourPedia, candidate will develop the confidence to clear this stage. There are many students who go without any such practice and eventually can’t perform nicely in the GD.
The topics in GD to be asked in Power Grid Corporation interview are of two types. One that is static and generic in nature and can be asked. Other types of questions asked are related to current topics, such as the repercussions of India becoming the most populous nation in the world. There are ten to fifteen current topics that are most important, and the probability of GD being asked about these is very high.
