Value Research, Noida : Raktim Nag and Tapesh Gopi
Infosys, Chandigarh : Manu Chugh and Deepak Jain

The final witnessed a very close battle but after some time it was a three-way game between Deloitte, BHEL, and Infosys from Chandigarh. The Deloitte team showed their class as the quiz progressed with some very good answers as they got themselves into yet another national finale.
BHEL towards the end of the quiz came up with some brilliant answers that helped them get past Infosys from Chandigarh to secure their first-ever national final appearance.
