Only five public sector undertakings (PSU) have confirmed their presence for recruitment at the premier IITs.

 
Most of the IITs had reached out to 80-odd PSUs in the country for this year's placements and expected a huge turnout after the PSUs got a green signal to conduct direct campus placements again. Their lukewarm response has left many worried, reported Times of India.
 
Incidentally, there are fewer startups visiting the premier IITs during campus placement this year.
 
IITs are keen to rope in PSUs for the first phase of placement that starts on December 1.
 
"The PSU lineup this year after lifting of the ban is not on expected lines. But we hope the numbers will rise in the coming days," a representative from the placement cell at IIT-Bombay was quoted as saying. Six PSUs have registered at the institute so far, said the student. At IIT-Kharagpur, IIT-Madras and IIT-Roorkee, too, around five PSUs have registered.
