Mumbai – Symbiosis and VNIT clinch West Zone

The West Zone finale is always a battle between heavy weights from across this region of India. The battles of the past have been tense and close. It seemed no different this year as eight outstanding teams lined up to take strike.

  • VNIT Nagpur: Pranjal and Pawan
  • ITM Navi Mumbai: Aritra and Aditya
  • Symbiosis Pune: Arjun Krishna and Ashish Vasvani
  • BITS Pilani Goa: Bhargav and Ananth Kachroo
  • SVNIT Surat: Abhijeet Singh and Ronak Bhattacharya
  • MICA Ahmedabad: Ms.Sukhada Chaudhary and Aditya A
  • IIM Indore: Senajit Chake and Arindam Paul
  • TISS Mumbai: Sandeep Banga and Sachin Deshpande

The honours after the early rounds were fairly even but as the quiz moved from one round to another with quizmaster Pickbrain setting a brisk pace, the teams from Symbiosis Pune, VNIT Nagpur and TISS started moving ahead of the rest.

In the next couple of rounds BITS Pilani Goa campus and ITM scored making the quiz a really close fight for the two slots in the national final. In the final round with Symbiosis and VNIT still ahead of the rest a spate of negatives by the other teams ensured these two marched into the national finale.

The guest of honour NS Rajan the Group Chief – Human Resources and Member of the Group Executive Council of Tata Sons appreciated the excellent performance of all the teams and wished them well to embrace a bright future.

WINNER : Symbiosis Pune – Arjun Krishna and Ashish Vasvani
RUNNER UP : VNIT Nagpur – Pranjal and Pawan
