In the ongoing placements at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D), over 500 students were hired by recruiters by both worldwide and domestic companies within five days, the institute said on Thursday.

Chennai: In a bright start to the placement season, students from IIT Madras has got 540 offers from 144 companies in the first four days which is an increase of 10 per cent compared to previous year.

"However, some students, who bagged global placements on December 1, preferred to opt for other options in India", the institute said, as quoted by Hindustan Times. "We also strive to ensure that all kinds of students get a chance to be interviewed", Anishya Madan, placement officer at the training and placement cell of the institute, said. The placement season had "kick-started" on December 1 with more than 200 offers including 20 worldwide ones were made on the inaugural day itself.

"The worldwide offers came from companies in Singapore, Hong Kong, the US, Amsterdam and Japan". We try to ensure that all kinds of job profiles get a fair representation in the roster.

The statement said chipset maker Intel made the highest amount of offer with 30 placements while the Indian Space Research Organisation, a government body, was among recruiters that participated in the first day of the drive.

The IIT Delhi claims that it follows the precedent because it feels that undue publicity to packages have the effect of "devaluing" national placements over the global ones.

I. N. Kar, professor incharge of placements, IIT-Delhi, said placements this year started on a very optimistic note and he hoped that the trend continues for the rest of the placement season.

Over 300 organisations across sectors offering over 500 job roles have already registered for placements in the coming few days.

IIT-Delhi has decided, as a policy, not to mention high-value packages in its placement information.
