My observations:

Cordial environment 

Chairperson, was interested to know about my current job and indirectly wanted to understand that how could I prepare while I was working. Some case study related questions were also asked to check practical understanding.

Questions on application of Geography were there but few questions from engineering background. Board focused more on my opinion rather than factual knowledge. I think being humble during interview is a very important virtue. At the fag end of the interview, I thanked all the members, pushed the chair back which bought a pleasant smile on face of members.
