    The company came to our college for campus hiring,conducted a written test,then Group Discussion followed by Technical n HR interviews. Written test was tricky but not very tough...consisted simple but tricky quantitative questions.GD mainly focused on political topics,but its not likely that they always give such kind of topics in all varsities.Technical interview was nice,not very hard to pass,not very easy.
