Why this trend of poor IITs Placement ?

Experts have attributed the downward trend in IIT placements to the global economic slowdown.

The official from IIT-Bombay’s placement cell told HT it was tough “to invite companies to the campus compared to last year due to the global economic meltdown”.

“Most companies were unable to accept salary packages pre-decided by the institute. It took many rounds of negotiations before they agreed to come over,” he said

The effect can be felt by IIMs too as the placement was not 100 per cent because of the global meltdown.
