According to me average salary/package of our College (GNDEC Ludhiana) is approximately 2.5-3 Lakh per year. But I get 5th rank to this college in Punjab with include IIT and NIT. Also it is Autonomous.

Fees and Scholarship

Fees are high as compared to the government-funded university and office work is slow so there will be a little difficulty in getting documents for education loan

Academics & Faculty

Class timings are good, they give funding for the project but no idea and it's like cut copy paste they give generalize marking. Only a few teachers can teach without book others are just dictating book in class. Overall experience wastage of time if you aren't having any plan what to do after bachelor's .if you are planning to go new Zealand or Canada after bachelor's it's perfect
