Applicants are advised to submit the following along with their application:-
Relevant copies of your Birth/Academic certificates;
iii. Any other relevant information; e.g. Curriculum Vitae.
Not confirming with the recipient: Always cross
check with the listeners, whether they have received
the correct information or not. For instance, if you
are sharing some important contact no, do make it
a habit to verify the number with the receiver whether
the receiver has noted it correctly or not. Use words
like "Did you get it? "Am I Audible?" in between the
conversation. Try to find out whether the listener is
getting your message or not. Take pauses in between,
simply don t rush.
Make a habit to spell out words. If you want to pass
on your e-mail id to your team, it is better to spell
out each word of the email account. Another effective
way is to break each word into alphabets, like ant can
be communicated as a as in alpha, n as in Netherlands,
t as in tango. The error rate will definitely go down
and the communication will be more effective.
Not understanding the mood of the recipient: Try
to understand the interest or the mood of the second
party and read the mind of the other person. Don t
just start speaking, understand the mood of the other
person first and then share the information. If you
think, the receiver is in the pink of his moods, don t
give him sad news, he will never bother to listen. Wait
for the correct time and then communicate if you
want your communication to create an impact.
Low pitch and tone: Sometimes even the pitch and
tone can play a communication barrier. Your content
might be accurate, crisp and even related, but if your
pitch is low your information will never reach the lis-
teners bang on.
The tone has to be crystal clear and loud for passing
on correct information. Remember to give the correct
pause after each sentence and don t forget the punc-
Remember you are communicating not only for the
first benchers but the people on the last bench are
also a part of the communication. Be loud and clear
but don t shout.
Impatient Listener: The listener also has to be patient
enough to absorb the complete information and then
respond accordingly. Always jot down your points and
start off with your queries once the sender is through
with the communication. Don t just jump in between
the conversation as it leads to unnecessary confusions,
misunderstandings and conflict and the communication
never reaches any conclusion.
Different cultural level: In any organisation, an indi-
vidual can never think on the same line as his boss
does. There is always a difference in their thought
process. The work pressure, lack of transparency
between the team members are also the barriers which
lead to an ineffective communication. These barriers
are called internal barriers.
Thus to conclude, any obstacle which comes in
between an effective communication are called com-
munication barriers. They result in distortion of the
message and the goal is never accomplished. External
barriers arise from the external environment and exter-
nal factors where as internal barriers are present within
the individual like tensions, work pressure, high expec-
tations, peer rivalry etc.
It is of prime importance to get rid of the above
barriers for an effective communication and the proper
flow of information between the sender and the receiv-
