    1. Hello Avisha,

      Well Yes, IMU Kolkata no doubt is very good. But other institutes like tolani, samundra etc have good placement records. But a candidates should personally check, the records before coming to any conclusion, as market is flooded with cadets these days. Under 200 rank is good.
