Guidelines by the AIPC (All IIT's Placement Committee) to the Recruiters
In order to have a mutual benefit and to have a long
term association, the AIPC has indicated the following guidelines to the recruiters. All the
recruiters are requested to kindly stick to these positively to have a smooth placement process.
- PPOs: In order to have a mutual benefit, it is highly desirable that the status of the
PPOs be informed by the last week of August. This is for students selected for intern through on
campus internship hiring process by the recruiters and after successful completion of the
- Short listing as well as selection criteria: If a company has any reservation to
shortlist / accepts students with arrears/backlogs, the company needs to inform the same in
advance in the job notification form. The company should clearly spell these criterions in the
job notification form such as: active/ cleared backlogs, year gap, bond, medical fitness
- Requirement on bond: If the policy of a company requires signing a bond as part of the
joining, it is highly desirable to specify clearly at the time of registration (on the
registration portal in the JNF).
- Representation during the Pre-assessment tests: At least one representative from the
company and/ or on behalf of the company should be present in the campus during pre-assessment
- Medical tests and Visa: Regarding medical tests and visa delay issues, it will be
beneficial that the recruiter informs students in advance through Placement/CDC/CCD office.
- Time duration: The maximum time for any pre-assessment test (online or off-line) is 90
minutes. Under certain exceptional cases another 30 minutes may be considered. For a single
company, a student can appear for personal interview for a maximum of two hours which must
include multiple sessions along with break in between and no single session can go beyond 45
- The placement test should be held on campus under the supervision of respective placement
office. Generic tests like hackathon, code challenge, case competition, buddy session etc. will
not be recognized as placement process and a company cannot recruit through these means as a
part of official campus placement.
- Key information on the offers made:
If a company makes offers during the placement session, the following key information may be
provided along with the offer letter:
- The details on the salary structure (including take-home salary) based on the CTC
- Joining location
