Hi Friends

This is SAURABH ARORA,SASTRA university, I am from Instrumentation background. I had attended for the Engineers India Limited (EIL) exam on 15th March, 2009 in Chennai. Before that I want to reveal one thing, before few days I have searched for the EIL papers, I got some idea by the sample papers of 2008 posted by some people. So I am uploading this after I attended for the exam. I think it may be useful for anyone, and will clarify your doubts regarding how to clear the exam, and nobody can guess cut-offs as they take away the papers also with them after exam.
