Deferred Placement Policy

IIT Delhi introduced the deferred placement policy this year, a step which was welcomed whole heartedly by the student community.

The Placement Saga

Another Placement season. Another season of lucrative offers for some and heartbreak for others. Only this time around, there were a little too many heartbreaks.

Amongst the many who apply for it (leaving out those whose grade sheets weigh too less in numbers to make them eligible for a semester abroad), only a few get through and the shattered dreams of the rest compel them to question the procedure and they do deserve an answer to “why not them”.
