3) PERSONAL/HR/TECHNICAL INTERVIEW :-
My interview lasted for 35 minutes.
My interviewer was a kind person. He briefed me about himself saying there was no need to panic as he himself was not from CS/IT background (This eliminated the chances of him asking me to write a code).
Basic HR questions included:
(i) Why IBM?
(ii) Introduce yourself .
(iii) My final year B.Tech Project.
(iv) Are you willing to relocate?
(v) What is SAP ?
(vi) What are the challenges you might face at IBM?
(vii) Do you plan to go for further studies?
They were basically checking my communication skills and my approach to a particular situation.

Book : Quantitative Aptitude by R. S. Aggarwal.
At the end of the interview, they will definitely ask you if you have any questions for them. Do ask a couple of questions. It shows that you are interested in joining them.
A total of 176 students appeared from NIT Goa & GEC, of which 51 were selected.
MY TAKE :
If you are able to clear the initial 2 rounds, 90 % chances are there you will sail through the 3rd round.
Non CS/IT guys do not be intimidated by your CSE counterparts , all are evaluated at a fair level.
Practice makes perfect !!!
GOOD LUCK! :).
