    Had an aptitude test. Later had to talk about any general topic of our interest for checking our communication and accent (appeared to be just a formality, people with worst possible communication and accent also cleared this round). Later had final round with an entire panel where the discussion was about past experience, what do I know about this company and why do I want to join this profile, some generic questions and puzzles.
