Dear Shefali,
One cannot exactly depict what sort of questions will be asked in any particular interview, it all depends on which kind of traits are required for that particular profile for which the person will get interviewed, in addition of this it also depends on interviewer to interviewer that how he will interview you. Well in general interviewer focus broadly in two main areas, first what sort of work you have done in your prior assignments and how you managed your assignments there second how capable you are in managing the future assignment if you get short-listed,
As HR generalist profile holds a broader concept, here you need to have hold on almost all domains of HR starting from recruitment till statutory compliances. So I will suggest you try to have an hold on what you have done in your 2.6 yrs of experience along with what all major areas you need to be proficient for the profile which you are getting offered in the interview.

Mr. Raman has given you quite a detailed syllabus to be prepared for interview. I am sure if you prepare it honestly, no-body is going to have an edge over your competence. BUT........ if you want to go for a precise one, just prepare on the following lines, hope this will suffice, though sky is the limit for candidates who are seeking job :-
HR professional is expected to have knowledge of following :- Pay Roll system, IR machinery, grievance/dispute redressal, HR practices, HR policies, Recruitment, Training, Performance appraisal, Balance Score Card (It is a very recent concept, so prepare it), promotional policy, Leadership, Team building skills, event management skills, communication skills - Reading, Writing, speaking, Some important Labour Welfare Acts - ID Act, PG Act, Factories Act, Shops & Estb. Act, PF provisions, Employees' Compensation, terminal benefits etc.
Good luck.
