We’ve put together an exhaustive list to help make the decision easier for all aspiring candidates. Although NITs have the same value as a new set up IIT; the brand value, campus life and placements of these NITs are far superior.


The older and more established NITs like those in Surathkal, Trichy, Warangal, and Calicut are a lot better than the most of the IITs.


We hope you won’t just go behind the prestigious IIT “tag”, but the overall career aspect that an institute offers.
