On 26th May, a group of 6,500 candidates who sat for L&T placements in Chennai between September to November 2014 in Chennai were provided offer of intent letters. While they outlined that they weren't legally binding, they were sent subsequent letters and told to wait as they would be accepted in batches. With this offer of intent however, came a congratulatory mail. “You are now part of L&T Infotech.”  A series of letters followed detailing batchwise recruitment procedures based on ranking and academic performances. 

On 3rd March 2016, the remainder of the students received mails to sit for an unscheduled assessment test that earlier batches didn’t. This, the students claim, had questions that toested those at the level of already having been placed in a project. “Neither were we trainees at this point, nor did we have a single day of experience at L&T.” A confusion with the hall tickets ensued – the words “if shortlisted” sent everyone into a tizzy. A third party company Himentor, came into the picture here clarifying that this was a mistake. It was simply an assessment and “not a recruitment drive”.

On April 7th 2016, approximately 1,500 students across the country received mails saying they were rejected due to their performance in the test.
