"Most of the prominent companies had already visited the campus for internships in August 2023 and have also registered their presence for this placement season," said Professor VK Tewari, director of IIT Kharagpur. The graduating class of 2023-24 has demonstrated great excitement and constructive faith in this placement initiative, as have employers anxious to tap into this Institute's talent pool."
