In the ongoing placements at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D), over 500 students were hired by recruiters by both worldwide and domestic companies within five days, the institute said on Thursday.

The hiring spree included 25 global companies with the first phase of placements commencing on Dec 1 until Dec 15 while the second one will begin in January, Business Standard reported.

The global offers came from companies in Singapore, Hong Kong, United States, Amsterdam and Japan. The institute said over 200 offers, including 20 global ones, were made on the inaugural day itself. The placement season had "kick-started" on December 1 with more than 200 offers including 20 worldwide ones were made on the inaugural day itself. "We also strive to ensure that all kinds of students get a chance to be interviewed", Anishya Madan, placement officer at the training and placement cell of the institute, said.

Among the national recruiters, a maximum number of offers (30) came from INTEL while the Indian Space Research Organisation, a government body, participated among the recruiters on the first day of placements.

The IIT Delhi claims that it follows the precedent because it feels that undue publicity to packages have the effect of "devaluing" national placements over the global ones.

I.N. Kar, Professor-in-charge of placement at IIT Delhi said: "Placements had started on a very optimistic note this year".

The drive saw over 300 organisations across sectors handing out 500 job vacancies that have been registered and awaiting placements within the next few days. Nikhil Chaturvedi has got an offer with Microsoft at their Redmond office in the US. The first phase of placement season has started on December 1.

The IIT Delhi also feels that mentioning high-value packages in placements will have a devaluing effect on core jobs over finance and consulting jobs.
