HYDERABAD: "How as an administrator will you respond to the recent hooch tragedy in the state and restrict consumption of liquor in your area?" This was among the questions put to the candidates who attended the interviews for GroupI Services that began at the APPSC (Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission) Bhavan at Nampally here on Wednesday.

The interview questions ranged from the recent hooch tragedy in Krishna district that claimed 19 lives to the Euro economic crisis and its impact on the world economy.

Each candidate was interviewed for about halfanhour by a panel. The questions were asked in the language chosen by the candidate. An 11member panel comprising senior IAS officers and members of the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission, including chairman Rachel Chatterjee conducted the interviews in the morning.

According to the candidates who attended the interview, Rachel Chatterjee too asked questions in Telugu for Telugu medium candidates. Many candidates said the interview panel was very cordial with them throughout the course of the interview.

Though they had entered the interview room with some nervousness, the members allowed them to settle down before shooting questions and at the end of it, they had come out with a pleasant experience, the candidates said. The aspirants who have their interviews scheduled for Thursday gathered in front of the building and made anxious enquiries with those emerging from the interviews on the pattern of the interaction and the kind of questions posed so that they could go more prepared to face the panels the next day.
