So let’s talk about M.Tech placements in IIIT A.

Before you question my authenticity , I’m the current placement coordinator of M.Tech at IIIT Allahabad so you are reading the most accurate stats and opinions.

Disclaimer : Note that the following answers are purely personal.

Question : What’s the average CTC of a M.Tech IT Student(2020 Passing out batch) at IIIT Allahabad?

Ans : Average : 14Lakhs.
Highest : 34Lakhs.
Lowest : 6Lakhs.
Median CTC : 11.75Lakhs.
Placed / Unplaced : 67 / 13

Question : Does that mean every student is making 1.16Lakh/Month (14Lakhs / 12 = 1.16 Lakhs) ?

Ans : No, that’s far from the truth. There is a huge difference between CTC and Net Monthly Take Home. For example, if a famous company offers 29.5 Lakhs in CTC, it doesn’t translate to 2.45 Lakhs/Month. The take home is somewhere between 1.14 to 1.20 Lakh/Month.

Question : Wait, where did the rest of the money go?

Ans : That’s where the game is. This company which offered 29.5Lakhs might be giving 16 to 17 Lakhs as Base Package(Take home per year) and 1 to 2 lakhs of Joining Bonus + Relocation Bonus (Paid one time at starting) and rest everything is RSUs or ESOPs which will vest in anytime between 1–5 years.

Question : I have heard B.Tech’s placement is great and M.Tech’s placement is shit, How true is this?

Ans : No, If a company has allowed M.Tech then they do not differentiate based on degree. They want to hire good programmers and many times M.Tech students could not compete with their B.Tech peers. However, things have changed this year to a minor extent. In my batch(2020) we had a few quality programmers who performed on par with B.Tech students if not better.

Question : Hey Sumanth! That’s all fine but not all companies allow M.Tech students, or do they?

Ans : Yes, not all companies allow M.Tech students. However all top companies starting from the likes of Amazon, Flipkart, Walmart, Uber, etc. allow M.Tech students sometimes even with higher CTC than B.Tech students. Out of around 140 companies that visited for the 2020 batch, M.Tech students were allowed to sit in 70+ companies. If you still think that 70 opportunities are not enough for you to land a great job, I would say be positive and focus on the opportunities available at hand rather than worrying. Even If you are a decent programmer I have got no doubt that you will work wonders and surprise yourself with the CTC you would draw.

Question : Fine sir. I accept now that there are enough opportunities however, are B.Tech students too strong with their coding skills ? Sir, do we even stand a chance against them?

Ans : Competition is strong. There’s no denying that, but no one ever has all the advantages. Let’s figure out ways to get those lucrative offers!

There are a total of 300 questions. Once you solve all of these standard questions, you will walk into an interview confidently knowing that you will do well.

Question : But sir, I have heard the course structure is hectic. Will we get anytime to work on coding?

Ans : Yes, the course is a bit time consuming compared to other colleges (24hrs of classes per week plus assignments on top of them), but my batch did very well at placements despite all this. Instead of being pessimistic, let’s use time smartly and balance academics + coding.

Question : Sir, my score is xyz and my category is abc. Can I get a seat in IIITA?

Ans : Please check the cutoff on gatecse website or CCMT website.

I have written the same post on medium and will keep on updating it as and when I get new questions. You can check that out too.

That’s all for now. If you have any further doubts you can reach out to me on facebook. I would like to thank my friend Bavani for helping me edit this post! :)

Given below is the official notification released by MHRD. Rumours are that fee hike would be $900 \%$ i.e. Rs. $50000$ per semester and also the scholarship will now only provided to only deserving students for M.Tech $2020$ Batch onwards. Just writing this blog so that everyone could become aware of it before giving GATE exam. No offence.(Who am I to offend it).


Ministry of Human Resource Development

Reform in M.Tech. programmes of IITs

Posted On: 29 SEP 2019 6:24PM by PIB Delhi

The Ministry of Human Resource Developments has issued a clarification regarding the news relating to the hike in the fee of M. Tech programme in IITs. The HRD Ministry has clarified that the decision of the Council of IITs to accept the recommendations of a three Member Committee on reforms in the M.Tech. programmes in IITs is based on the following facts:-


  • There is no fee hike for the existing students.
  • For new admissions, hike will be gradual over a period of three years or more, as will be decided by the respective Board of Governors of IITs.
  • Needy students will be provided necessary financial support.
  • All concessions and scholarships for SC/ST/OBC and others will continue without change.
  • The fee hike will discourage non-serious students, who after a few months of stay in IITs, leave the programme midway to take up employment or to prepare for competitive exams.
  • This drop out in the middle of the programme leads to wastage of coveted seats on the one hand and denies opportunity to other serious and meritorious students, on the other.
  • IITs will offer only those programmes that have demand in the market.  This will ensure immediate placement after completion of the course.
  • Good and deserving students will be provided Teaching Assistantship/Scholarship.
  • The fee for the M.Tech. programmes in IITs have not been revised for a long time whereas the cost per student has gone up substantially.

The Ministry has assured to all future students who will come to study at IITs that no student will be deprived of opportunity for education because of weak financial condition.

$-$ With Love from MHRD
