  1. How come the placements of the last batch averaged 12 lacs? The figures are fudged up.
    Moreover, almost 40% of the last batch remained unplaced in the batch.
    And one of the placement members of XPGDM works as a superseding authority, accountable to none and acting in a high handed manner.
