I understand your intent, but unfortunately the rules are not negotiable. No company names please.

I have 4 yrs experience in java. One company in Bangalore called me for a techlead interview recently. But I idiotically lost the interview.

After gaining 5 yrs of experience, you should be in a position to negotiate for a technical lead position. Try the forums at [Astroturfing removed --MH] where you can ask company specific feedbacks

Lead position is possible with a 5 year experience and it depnds on how well you do your interview and how much you learned and accomplished in those 5 years.

Guys,

I work for top investment bank in Mumbai. I am also under similar kind of dilemma.
My manager has offered me a choise b/w tech. lead/team lead position. I have 4 yrs of j2EE work exp, I am confused b/w the role/resposibilties in these position. Seniors are requested to guide me on this?.
will Team lead postion will take me away from technology side, I will remain confined to budgeting/task allocation kind of boring stuff. or can I carry tech. things also in parallel to routine activties of team lead. all comments & suggestion are welcome.
..thanks

Why don't you ask your question to your manager?

Ask your manager if it is a hands-on team lead position. Team lead role can vary a lot from project gto project and company to company. I worked for an insurance company as a team lead where most of my time was in meetings and making technical decisions but it was fully hands-off. I enjoyed team lead roles requiring to build vertical slices and then get team members to follow in addition to other responsibilities like development plan, test plan, release management etc.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
