Inside campus: they gave us a blank paper and asked us to write declaration about certificates that we are submitting.
Again After 15 min (1:30pm) I was called for document verification, gave all xerox, got biometric verification done and all went smoothly. ( Note: if u are lacking any document, don't be tensed, they give time to present document within stipulated time)
After document verification, at 2:pm sharp, some of us whose document verification got completed, was called to sit in waiting chair outside panel room.
A guy before me went into the room and came out after 15 min. And now it was my turn.. I immediately took deep breathe, prayed and when the ring bell, I went in by asking "may I come in please"
