After 5 mins I got my result and I had cleared the tech. Then comes the HR. I am directly writing the questions as the answers may differ individually.

Tell me something about u?
Tell me something about TCS?
U have presented a paper on missile systems, tell me something about it?
He took a project and asked me why I used Access in it and its database implications slightly.
What r yur strengths?
Do you know about the bond with TCS?
What if we send u to Pakistan or timbaktoo?
(be prepared for such question and smile a bit rather than laughing heavily on such questions)
do you have any questions for us?
I asked 2 questions:
1. What will be my job profile and how do I see my chances of growing in yur organization?
2. How do u see that yur clients are satisfied with yur services and what r the parameters that help u in doing it?

So these were my set of questions. Wish u all the best.
