It seems, even the IIT geeks cannot resists the charm of the government sector.

The most recent get placement drive held in IIT-Kanpur turned out to be an eye opener for many HR pundits, where the clear winner was government companies, as most of the students preferred government jobs over the hefty packages offered by private multinational IT firms.

Several students accepted the job offers from government run organisations like Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and energy and gas majors like Bharat Heavy Electronics Limited (BHEL) and ONGC, said sources.
According to sources,students were not much interested in joining IT companies that offer huge packages of Rs one crore and above.

They mostly chose government firms paying a decent salary packages around Rs 20 lakh annually with all sarkari benefits.
