  • Most of the firms have forewarned students about visa problems and have made parallel offers for Indian positions, in case selected candidates fail to get visas.
  • Last year, a majority of the students who were placed in US firms had to join their Indian offices or were placed in other countries.

The number of firms coming to the campus has almost doubled," said a student. Rakuten, Murata, Yahoo Japan, Sony are some of the Japanese firms that have been regular on the campus in recent years.
