    either clause- preposition must?

    Interview will be conducted either in Mumbai or in Chennai.

    Does it work without underlined preposition in "either" clause?

    Re: either clause- preposition must?

    You need one "in" at least.

    You could say:

    "... either in Mumbai or Chennai."
    "...in either Mumbai or Chennai."

    Or your original sentence.

    The sentence should begin 'The interview will be conducted...' or 'Interviews will be conducted...'
