Interested candidates are required to produce their college ID cards at the time of registration. Students are also invited to attend the talk on career prospects at NTPC.
The NTPC quiz will be conducted in two levels-regional level at Hyderabad and the national level at Delhi. Prizes worth Rs. 50,000 are to be won at the regional level competition. The top 3 teams from the Southern region will participate in the national finals to be held in Delhi on December 21, which will be hosted by the noted quiz master Derek O'Brien.
The National Thermal Power Corporation has been organising the 'Electron Quiz' since the past 5 years as an effort to reach out to students from engineering and management backgrounds. NTPC’s perspective on quizzing is that it is a non-conventional but powerful collaborative learning tool of immense potential.
