Students carrying specific course backlog(s) may or may not be allowed to appear in the recruitment process as per the eligibility criteria of the concerned company/organization.
  • All students eligible for on-campus jobs have to register themselves online on the website of T&P Cell. Only after successful online registration, students can login to their accounts and fill-in the Student Information Form (SIF) and upload their resume. The confidentiality of password will be the sole responsibility of the student.

    Student Information Form and Resume

  • After successful online registration, students are required to fill in the online Student Information Form (SIF) and upload his/her latest resume. Students can upload their updated resume time to time by logging into their accounts.
  • It is to be noted that students who do not fill in the online SIF form and do not upload their resume till a specified deadline (which will be communicated by the TnP Cell), shall NOT be considered for on-campus placements through the TnP Cell. No requests by the students shall be entertained in this regard at a later stage.
  • It is expected that a student shall NOT add any ambiguous/ wrong/fraudulent/misleading information in the SIF form as well as in his/her resume. Verification of details will continue throughout the placement process. If, on verification, any discrepancies are found, the student would be subject to strict disciplinary action.

    Application Rules

  • After successfully filling up the online SIF form and uploading the resume, students can see the list of companies who have registered and filled in the Job-Announcement Form, along with eligibility criteria of that company.
  • Students will get the option to either confirm OR reject their participation in that company till a particular deadline. After this deadline, NO change in the students’ choices will be entertained.

    Rules of Withdrawing an Application

    Students who register online, fill in the online SIF form and upload their resume, will be able to login and view the list of companies that have filled in the Job-Announcement Form till that date, along with their eligibility criteria. The student may withdraw his/her application online from a company till a specified deadline. After the deadline, NO changes will be entertained.

    Selection Process

  • Certain bands have been decided by the T&P Cell as per the annual CTC offered by companies. A student will be allowed to take up ONLY ONE on-campus job in a particular band, excluding the dream job offer. The communication regarding the bands will be notified to the students well before the commencement of the placement season.
  • Dream Job offer will be decided dynamically.

    Student Conduct and Disciplinary Policy

  • Absenteeism policy:
    • In case a student remains absent from the recruitment process of a company for which he/she has confirmed his/her participation online through his T&P student account, strict disciplinary action will be taken against the student.
  • Using unfairmeans during any round of the recruitment process is a serious offence. Such students would be deregistered immediately and also will be referred to the concerned authorities for disciplinary action.

    Ph.D. Students

    For Ph.D. students, all policies remain the same as applicable to other students with the following exception:
  • Interviews for Ph.D. students can be conducted on any day suitable to the company as well as the candidates. Unlike the selection procedure for the rest of the students, the placements for PhDs are open throughout the year & the recruiters need not wait till December for initiating the interview process.

    General Advice

  • Students must carry their I-cards at all times during interviews & screening tests. No one would be allowed to enter the test/interview venue without the I-card.
  • The date/time/venue of the interviews will be subject to changes which, at times, may be at a short notice. Students must keep themselves well informed by visiting the T&P website (On Student Account page after logging in).
  • Students must carry a complete file with a few copies of the resume, original certificates (if possible) and copies thereof while appearing for the interviews.
