 Almost all key IITs across the country have got a reason to rejoice as the number of public sector undertakings (PSUs) queuing up to conduct placement camps has gone up significantly, The Economic Times reported.

The recruitment process at IITs begins on December 1.
 
The report stated that the country’s oldest IIT at Kharagpur is going to witness participation of 13 PSUs this year compared to four in the previous year. Indian Oil, HPCL, BPCL, and BEL are some of the major PSUs participating in the placement drive.
 
 “There will be participation of seven PSUs this year at the Guwahati campus against three last year. “The Madras high court dismissing a plea against direct recruitment by PSUs could be a reason," Kaustubha Mohanty, placement chairperson of IIT Guwahati and convener of the All-IIT Placement Committee, was quoted as saying. 
 
Debashis Deb, placement chairperson at IIT-Kharagpur, said that Coal India recruited 31 students last year. At IIT Madras, eight PSUs have confirmed participation, the newspaper reported. "The new entrants this year are Coal India, ONGC, HPCL, Midhani (Miniratna) and BEL," said Manu Santhanam, chairman of placements at IIT Madras.
