    Hi every one, First of all many-many thanks to “incomopedia” and Sudhir sheoran who shared much valuable informations on this web site about ATC interview and I really got benefit from this. Let’s us see result…
    Here I am writing about My ATC interview which held on 13/07/16 from beginning…
    First of all get down at “Mor Bhag” Metro Station which is the AAI office (Rajiv Bhawan)
    In side, there will be biometric test (of your finger) followed by document verification and then Voice test. In Voice test they are telling to read a magazine and before that some informal talk that is also a part of the test. In view almost all candidates are being passed in voice test.
    now for the Interview…
    There are three board rooms (B1,B2,and B3) for interview.
    They asked me “tell me something about yourself that is not mentioned in the frofile form”(a profilr form have to fill over there. it is a simple form.)
    they asked about my place where I am belog from. they disscussed about my state’s politics. what are the places Mr. Modi visited recently, About AAI, what is work of AAI, how does an aircraft fly, some questions from power amplifier, networking (TCP-IP), what is the objective of ATC etc.
    I answerd well and let’s see the result.

    1. sudhir sheoran

      Thank you dear for sharing your experience. Your efforts will definitely help other guys. All the best for your result. Stay in touch.

  11. I am trying my level best,to get into this Divine Profession,By His Grace.

    Certainly Sir. I will share.

  12. Dear Sir,..
    I think my interview was beyond the frame of convention!
    Because, I was not asked to tell about myself!!
    I completed my graduation in 2011,so first they asked what I did during the past 5yrs. Then, I was asked about Kepler’s laws of planetary motion.Then about seasons,GMT,the reason for becoming an ATC,objectives and duties of ATC,Functions of AAI. That’s all!! It was very short of an Interview!!

    Waiting in huge anticipation, for a positive result!

    Once again,Thanks a lot, Sir.

    God Bless,

    Harish N

  13. Sir,
    To be Frank, Yesterday was the most horrendous day of my life so far..
    I couldn’t find my number among the provisionally selected candidates!..
    What to do sir?..
    Is there any chance of further hope?

      1. Thanks for your reply,Sir.
        I am praying to Almighty, for enabling me to find my number in the coming list.
        Once again,
        Thank you so much for your kind reply.

  14. Hello sir

    I found my roll number in the list of provisionally shortlisted candidates.Is that the final list..?
    I’m presently working as a communication skills trainer in an autonomous engineering college..And I need to inform the management well before I leave that job..
    So what should I do now..?Can I inform the management about me leaving the job or should I wait till I receive a mail from AAI..?

  15. Sir i got my name in the 3rd list of aai je atc exam (dec 2015) but till now i didnt receive any mails from aai . Kindly provide me the info about when shall i get the offer of appointment ?

  16. Sir
    When shall we expect to get interview call letters for the ATC interview for Advertisement 07/2015 which are scheduled to begin on 7 february?

    1. Keep checking your email and better utilize this time to prepare for interview. Dont worry you will get interview letter if you have qualified the exam.

  17. Sir
    I have got my interview letter. Alobg with the certificates they are asking to bring the admit card of the onlone examination held on april 24. But i have lost it. Will they allow me to give my voice test and interview

    1. Take a printout of Whatever you have application form/interview call letter and all AAI emails you have got and appear there. They will allow you. Just convince them in case needed.

    2. Visit airport India site u can still get it from there . Search under the advertisement no. In your call letter .. U will get everything. I myself got that today itself

  18. Greetings,
    I have a few doubts regarding the recruitment for ATC by AAI.
    Does the recruitment open at regular intervals?
    When can the next opening be expected for ATC?
    Thank you
    Best regards.
