The delay last year was attributed to non- placements of some students till the convocation ceremony.Is the reason same this year also? A professor wishing anonymity admitted that there are some students who have not been placed as yet and said that the institute would support them till they get jobs of their choices. He, however, chose to remain non- committal on the issue of nonrelease of placement report.

He sidestepped the query saying placement office could only comment on it. Generally, all the IIMs release placement reports ahead of the convocation ceremony so that during the ceremony, it could be announced that students were not only moving out with the diplomas but also with job offers.
