This year, IIT Bombay has failed to find jobs for 36% of students. 2,209 students enrolled for placements, out of which only 1,485 secured jobs through campus.

An official from the IIT-Bombay placement cell told HT that it was a struggle "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. For the first time, registered students from the computer science and engineering branch, which are most in demand, have not seen 100% placement among those registered," added the IIT official.
