    what the hell has happened to tech colleges survey commities .i don’t think N.I.T.R being placed lower than any other N.I.T.s.i think N.I.T.R has got some of the best infrastructure in INDIA & it also has got the best faculties in INDIA.if anyone don’t think so then go and have a look.

  • 3. sayed s mohammad  |  August 9th, 2008 at 10:33 pm

    N.I.T. R is organizing a book fair for it’s student .N.I.T.R has really gone upto certain level .so N.I.T.R is evolving as a brand besides IITs.

  • 16. Apala  |  June 15th, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    For all of you laughing at VIT,well time to swallow the bitter truth that yes a private engineering college has risen above NIT’s..and for all of you who don’t know,VIT has had exceptional placements this year(Despite the recession)..not just IT companies but several core companies which have not visted the NITs(swallow again!) have come to VIT…A reputation needs a lot of hard work,inputs in the terms of academics as well as infrastructure..maybe the NIT’s need to brush up and catch up instead of resting on past laurels???And for the others commenting..please check the statistics before saying it’s all a money game…anyhow you are all entitled to your opinions!PeaceAll!:)

  • 17. Anonymous  |  June 16th, 2009 at 8:58 am

    I am a 2009 pass out from CSE-VIT. Currently I am having job offers from General Electric, Cisco and TCS. VIT deserves the rank it got and its time for everyone to awallow that just a ‘sarkaari’ tag after ur college wont come to ur rescue ever in your competitive career…

  • 18. Vivek  |  June 16th, 2009 at 9:51 am

    I got AIR 27982 (OBC rank 5515) in AIEEE 2009 exam.My state rank is 4400 (OBC 1134) of Andhra pradesh. Please suggest me the best NIT or IIIT college for ECE course. What about the BTech(IT)+MBA Integ. course in AB Vajpayee IIITM,Gwalior (M.P)? How is the IIITM Gwalior in placements of engineering

  • 19. charanjeet  |  June 16th, 2009 at 11:39 am

    i want to know which nit to join
    nit jalandhar or nit hamirpur

  • 20. wtva  |  June 16th, 2009 at 2:15 pm

    wel wtva! bein a passout frm VIT all i kno is it is still an underachievin institution. The tremendous potential isnt still tapped, for tht some of the idiots at the top needs to be sacked and lot of the acamedic decisions need to be reviewed n replaced by more intelligent ones. certain things frustrate u the core. the reforms at the top hasn reached the ‘teacher to student’ level Please post your comments in regular English. Thanks. Editor.

  • 21. sidhant bansal  |  June 16th, 2009 at 10:03 pm

    total crap….IIIT ALLAHABAD not in top 20….and VIT above the nit trichya and all………why do such magazines conduct the rankings which totally mislead the students.

  • 26. savoy  |  June 21st, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    I think the ranking is totally fake with regard to the NIT’s.NIT Trichy shall be ranked first and NIT Calicut the second,since being the most recent ranking of NITs in india.

    ……4 god’s sake,don’t mislead a common man! ! ! !

  • 32. cool  |  July 1st, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    all the people here lobbying for NIT and VIT know what is the truth, i know what is VIT vellore showing that TCS like company took some 300 or 400 students in tandem doesnot gurantee u good period at recession.Everyone knows pvt colleges pay for placements to company and apart from that i know what all condition VIT is having ,showing off in infrastructure doesnt show quality you must realize that.NIT are always way ahead from them and that is a fact and about ranking by india today its all crap as the more you pay them better will be your rank.Thats evident because i have never seen india today survey team etc visiting campuses for getting facts and also this year ranking we saw new colleges whose background is very bad in top ranking despite lacking all basic requirements of becoming a top institute.

  • 33. at  |  July 2nd, 2009 at 8:05 am

    wat abt nit surat …………it remains constantly on dat ranking wheras its placement,campus n everything jst excellent…………..these ranking sucks..

  • 34. COOL  |  July 2nd, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    itz really unreal 2 put vit above nit warangal and tirchy…

    anyone who made this rankin made probably made some mistake..

  • 35. NIT ROCKS  |  July 2nd, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    The truth remains, a college which ws placed at 43 in the last yr suddenly comes above premiere institutes like NIT Warangal is laughable!! And a word 2 the wise VITian girl, no need 2 tell how gud VIT is, the kindof students studying in VIT stand nowhere when face NITs and IIiTs. So stop being excited by the rankings and face the fact that itz money game and that’s it.

  • 36. vickey  |  July 7th, 2009 at 5:45 pm

    vit i know u r truth……………so better not to dance after seeing this ranking ………..vit cannot be above nit it is even worse then some state colleges ….u will get placements from money but after some time cmpny wll throw u ok!! so bewarethis ranking is just a shit

  • 37. aishwariya  |  July 9th, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    yep… for sure this is money game.. being played btw… vit and the very known magazine…

  • 42. y mahendra  |  July 23rd, 2009 at 4:31 pm

    someone over here commented that nit rourkela is better than iit roorkee.well he should know that he is wrong and this ideaology will get him to nowhere .if he thinks like this he will become one of the greatest beggars in world. we iit roorkians give jobs to nit rourkela they should be grateful to us. Crossed out by the Editor.

  • 47. puneet  |  September 7th, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    dont ever believe in india today ranking..
    ITs totaly absurd..

  • 48. dark lord  |  October 10th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    This is totally CRAP…..

    wat r vit n jadavpur doing so high in da rankings???

    i personally had da xperience of visiting VIT n interacting wid sum studnts n teachers………sum teachers wer just MTech passouts……most of da students wer dose who cud not make it 2 IITs n NITs…..all VIT has is a good-looking campus…… severely lacks in human resources……………it’s NOTHING compared 2 most NITs

    jadavpur has good faculty n infrastructure……..but da work culture is missing…..dere is severe politics……….several unions vie wid each other 2 recruit freshers……..inter-union violence is quite common, upsetting academic schedules…..many of da faculty dont teach in JU but in private colleges on kolkata on a part-tym basis, giving dere scheduled JU classes a miss……….elections r quite violent …booth capturing, bashing up rival candidates n voters…..posters competing 4 wall this an educational institution or a political battleground in a naxalite region??

  • 49. shubham  |  October 14th, 2009 at 3:16 pm

    no need to comment anything on the ranking, just recommend people to visit this site and India today will automaticaly pay for it, guys just think that NIT trichy and warangal admits student who get ranks under 5000 in AIEEE , compare from VIT, ask the students of VIT if they would had got an oppertunity to get admitted in NIT trichy or warangal, which they would had opted?
    its true that IITs are the best but top 4 NITs are not a bit less than them..


  • 50. saugata  |  December 6th, 2009 at 4:48 pm

    hi i am in class 12 ryt now and i aspire to study in nit..i want to take computer scince..which is the best nit for cs?? i live in kolkata so nit durgapur is a convinient option fro me..but i want to go for the best..giv a reply soon..

  • 52. Agnivo  |  December 11th, 2009 at 7:39 pm


    Anyway i will just name few of the companies that have already visited the campus this year..ADOBE,AMAZON,TEXAS INSTRUMENTS,DELOITTE,TATA MOTRS,MARUTI,IOCL,BPCL

    want any more names??…there are plenty

    last year one student went to Stanford for higher studies and there are many students in the top 20 US colleges.One of my last year senior is at IISC.He stood first in GATE 2009

    To All plz dont listen to crap about JU its not in such soup as described by that “dark lord”.Yes there are rooms for improvement,it dosnt promote itself etc..but it is certainly after the top IITs,BITS Pilani,NIT T & K.

    U can google for reliable sources to gather info.

  • 53. Agnivo  |  December 11th, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    Sorry i meant to say NIT W and not K
    DCE is also a good college

  • 54. Nitin  |  January 20th, 2010 at 10:13 am


    So much acid over rankings! I agree that these polls do not talk much. I mean if you go to a poll of Business Today or Business India or India Today or some other mag, all will have different ratings.
    While money may be behind these ratings (I am sure govet colleges like IIT/NIT wont be paying ), the methodology itself is sometimes questionable.

    Fact is that irrespective of what you feel and say about your respective college, IITs and NITs form the top cream. Obviously not all NITs come to take top honours and good colleges like DCE, PEC would also come to top if they agree to participate. Please note that these ratings are ONLY for colleges which have agreed to participate in rankings, else BITS Pilani should have definitely been there.

    IITs are definitely the cream, for the fact that their entrance exam only permits the best brains to get in.

    Some state colleges are good but they take a back seat in national surveys because of lack of awareness and more important, they not having a pan-indian culture. However, there are cases where state collesges score over the respective NIT of that state. COEP being an example, though the advantage is because of Pune being a city that it is.

    So, I suggest, rather than throwing acids over each other, get the facts and perceptions straight. Rather than believing above rankings to get jubiliant or unhappy, check out the facts yourself!


  • 55. Arunesh  |  January 25th, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Well !!! Junat know the truth. No need to spit the beans. Just answer a simple question.
    Have u seen any VITian being CMD/CEO or president of any recongnisable companies.
    IITians & Most NITians rule the top notch place. Above all, the level of students entering into VIT has no match with those getting into IITs/NITs

  • 56. karan  |  February 3rd, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    IIT roorke gives jobs to nit rourkela doesnt make iit better……..infact their students tach u…..what say???

  • 57. ehsaan  |  February 10th, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    guys, vit definitely has a shiny prospectus and gud campus
    i donts know if it has the same level as nit wrngl and trichy as far as education goes

    anyways, lets wait for the 2010 ranking n see how much mny vit has… if it dint giv all of it 2 India Today already, that is//

    and vitians
    just bcoz u passed out of it and got gud jobs doesnt mean it is better college than nit trichy,w etc.
    these have been around even b4 ur fathers were born…
    sure urs might be a gud collg
    but not better than them
    but these are govt colleges who dont worry about rankings…
    n dont pay magazines lyk ur collg does
