The placement process at IIT Guwahati is being conducted in virtual mode this year, too. Last year, only the coordinating committee members were physically present on the campus while the volunteers were connected virtually. This year, the entire coordinating committee and a majority of the volunteers are present on the campus to coordinate the entire placement process. The students (either on-campus or off-campus) are participating in virtual mode.
