8. The company may also, if interested, conduct selections for summer internship during this period.
9. T & P departmentmay advise the companies to conduct a presentation before the recruitment process for final placement of students. This will provide ample time to the students for making a considered decision in joining the company. Early conduct of Written/Online test may facilitate the company in earning an early slot for final placement.
10.In case the company finds it inconvenient to visit the campus twice for going through its complete selection process, it can be accommodated to carry out the entire selection process, including PPT, during final placement season on a mutually agreed date. However, in such a situation it may not be possible to accommodate the company in the early days of the final placement season.
11.The final placement process (Aptitude Test/Technical round/Group Discussion (GD)/Interview) shall start during or after the end of 7th semester of B.Tech/ 3rd semester of MBA/5th semester of Diploma.
12.The company shall visit the campus on scheduled date and conduct the Written/OnlineTest/GD/Interview as part of their selection procedure during the slot assigned to them. It is important to understand that, on the same date, another company may be scheduled before/after hours and any shift is bound to cause inconvenience to our self and others as well. So, the T & P departmentmust be very careful in organizing such events on the same day.
13.The Institute shall follow“One Student One Job” policy, other than low paid jobs.
14.B.Tech/MBA students – One student is allowed to secure only one job if the gross package is more than 2 lakh per annum for B.Tech/MBA students. If the gross amount offered is less than or equal to 2 lakh per annum, he/she is eligible to apply for a company whose gross amount is more than 2 lakh per annum. And therefore after one secures a job with gross greater than 2 lakh per annum, one would be automatically deregistered from that day onwards.
15.Diploma students – One student is allowed to secure only one job if the gross package is more than 1.2 lakh per annum for Diploma students. If the gross amount offered is less than or equal to 1.2 lakh per annum, he/she is eligible to apply for a company whose gross amount is more than 1.2 lakh per annum. And therefore after one secures a job with gross greater than1. 2 lakh per annum, one would be automatically deregistered from that day onwards.
16.As more than one company would be visiting the campus, there may be a possibility that one student secures more than one job on the same day. Therefore,
Each eligible student will be required to fill up his/her individual preferences in advance for each placement day, ranking the companies he/she has applied to/ has been shortlisted on a particular day, in the descending order of his/her choice. The preferences are editable till a day before by 23:59 hrs.
- These preferences shall be used in case:
- The student gets selected in more than one company on the same placement day.
- A company wants to make an on-the-spot offer to the student before the selection procedure for the day is over.
- In case a student gets selected in 2 or more companies on the same day, then the company ranked higher in the preference order of the student will be the one where the student would be finally considered placed.
- In case a student does not fill the preference order for a placement day, then the allotment will be down by the electronic system and he/she will NOT be allowed to continue to appear for the placement process of the other companies.
- It is therefore advised that one MUST register their preference ASAP.
- Dream Company – The students will be offered only one opportunity for their “Dream Company”, in case they have any, to appear for, during the entire process of final placement. This will be in addition to the company where he/she has already been selected, but not joined. This will be applicable, only when the candidate has not received any previous offer with an annual package of Rs. 3 Lacs per annum. If a candidate has already been offered and accepted, any job with Rs. 3 Lacs or more annual package, then that offer would be considered his/her “Dream Company” offer, and he/she shall be out of the Placement process.
- In case a company does not give its final selection list on the same day it visits the campus, then the students will be allowed to appear in other companies visiting on subsequent days till they finally get selected. However, if a student has already been selected by a company that came on the subsequent day & the company that deferred its decision also makes an offer to him/her later on, then:
- The student will be given an option to choose between company of the previous day and the company of the day.
19.In case the result of the company (which deferred its selection process) gives its result on a day later than the day when the student was selected by another company, this late offer will be rejected and the company would be informed.

Students with multiple offers will be required to finalize their option for one company and inform T & P department within half an hour from the end of the slot. His/her choice would be informed to all the concerned companies. In this situation, to ensure that the company does not suffer on the front of recruitment, the company is suggested to prepare a list of students, in order of their merit, who can be kept waitlisted. Any drop out from the main-list will enable movement of the waitlisted candidates to the list of selected candidates and the company will be informed of the same.
21.The company is required to send offer letters to T & P department, who will then hand it over to the concerned students. Such letters are expected to reach the department before the end of final semester of B.Tech/MBA.
22. Acceptance of offers:
- Selected students would get the offer either in hard copy or through E-mail. After this stage the student would be required to accept the offer by accepting the same either through duplicate hard copy or e-mail within 24 hours of declaration of the result. In case the offer is not accepted within 24 hours, the same would get communicated to the company through its online account with T&P.
- Whether one accepts or does not, one would not be allowed to participate further. It is advised that the students accept the offer immediately through the T&P department.
