        PhD scholars receive a stipend of around 20,000 Rs per month. The Mphil program is heavily focused on research so internships are not really necessary. The professors are all really very helpful as they give out very useful advice.

        Yes, the college provided placement to the students but it is limited. When I was there I also applied for the interview and got the placement from the college but I wanted to do further studies and didn't opt for the job. many of my seniors who got placement from the campus placement drive still working in the same companies. they were very intelligent that's why according to their academic marks it was easy for them to crack the interview.

        Placement is average because the college has some countable companies who come every year to provide jobs. Yes, some of my seniors got a job in good companies. The interviews also depend on the ability of a student. Face to face interviews and English ability test is taken by the students at the time of interview. Also, pre-placement practice is provided by the management so that students won't face any issue at the time of interview.

        The placement and job opportunities in this college are very less. As only a few companies visit the campus to offer jobs to the students. Most of the students have to look on their own for the job opportunities.
