    Why PSU are so selective and visiting the campus , as per the rules there should be open examinations, do they think IITians are only the technical brains in India. there are hundred nos of very good engg colleges in india and the students are even better than IITs .Government should take immediate action and stop PSU for Such recruitment. AS per the cons ution every one has rights for applying jobs in Govt. and PSU sectors . lets their will be open examination.?. By this biased placement IITans are getting opportunities to proof them selves where as other Engg colleges are not getting chances. If the IITians so brainy then why India is importing 90 of the arms , mobiles , IT hardwares and other equipments Now a days IITians are only making the b s on ry and placement the real utilisation of the talents in R D are not happening. and White collar professors doing just commercially b ing if not then what is the ratio Of NOBEL prizes in India. The govt should control
