The placement season will begin on December 1, later this year.
Offers have been pouring for the final year students as an outcome of internships which the students went for during the summer recess.
"This is an encouraging sign for us that companies recognise our students' hard work and motivation during the internship," said Debasis Deb, Professor in-charge of the Career Development Centre at IIT Kharagpur.
According to him, several factors like versatility, wide choices in course curriculum available through flexible academic programmes, dedicated and experienced faculty strength and a strong presence of the alumni across most of recruiting organisations resulted in the huge number of PPOs.
IIT Kharagpur has also received over 200 internship offers for the pre-final year students for the summer of 2018.
The institute authorities expect to cross the tallies of past years in internship offers for the academic year 2017-18, the release said.
