an element of exaggeration in the claims made by such institutes in the matter of placements.

I can say this from personal experience.

For the last two years running, I was part of a panel given the task of recruiting graduates from a couple of the new IITs for my employer.

Each time, we would interview between 20 and 25 final year students and select 1 or 2 or 3 from among them.

And each time, the heads of placements at both IITs would come to us and request us to select at least 6 or 7 students !! On one occasion, the head of placements at an institute went as far as pleading with us repeatedly over a week !

We came to know from other recruiters that these heads routinely request all of them to grant similar favours !

And we ended up deciding to select 2 more students in the current year and thus avoid visiting another institute !
