Effective communication bridges differences and encourages problem- solving!
Communication, interaction, discussion…. These are some of the central elements of a human society without which no progress is possible. While ability to speak is a normal, high- quality speaking ability is a benefit which only few humans have. When we talk of any professional field it is the “high- quality speaking ability” that is taken into consideration.
The professional field on which today’s article focus is Indian Air Force. It is one of the most honored branch of Indian Armed Force. With the motto of “touch the sky with glory” Indian Air Force is an integral part of the nation.
Its objective is to safeguard Indian Airspace by carrying evacuation, search and rescue operations, and relief operations whenever needed.
This branch with its high standards requires a talented staff for which it conducts a particular entrance exam. The exam involves written tests+ interview+ G.D.
It is the third tier, the G.D round that links effective communication to Indian Air Force. Just as any professional field Indian Air Force requires Officers who are proficient in communication and can appropriately convey+ understand the message. To test this particular ability, I.A.F carries a G.D session.

It is conducted on the 2nd day of selection procedure and checks your basic ability to interact; knowledge about current affairs and your manner of conduct after all Indian Air Force Officers must be decently presentable.
