The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are reportedly considering a change in their placement reporting practices by not disclosing the highest annual packages. Instead, they may focus on mean and median salary figures to alleviate pressure on students during the placement season. This decision emerged during a recent meeting of the All IITs Placement Committee (AIPC), triggered by concerns over the potential impact of disclosing highest salary figures on students' expectations and mental health. The move comes in the wake of a corrigendum issued by IIT-Bombay, revising the number of offers surpassing an annual package of Rs 1 crore from 85 to 22 due to a "technical error" in their placement report. The AIPC aims to establish common guidelines for releasing placement reports in its next meeting in February.
