General Championship quizzes[edit | edit source]

The Biz, Sci-Tech and General quizzes during the General Championships are very important events in the College. They constitute a good number of points and the respective halls battle their wits to come out on the top. Major Chandrakant Nair, the quiz master for 2018, commented that such enthusiasm for Inter-hall competitions in college is very enthusing.

The quizmasters for 2019 were Samanway Banerjee for the Biz and Sci-Tech quizzes along with Baneswar Sarker and Arindam Dutta for the General quiz.
