Percentage criteria varies for each company and is decided by the company itself. But most companies look for 60% through out. Some companies look for 60% only in B.E, but setting this criteria depends on the company.
You will have a chance to attend interview in many companies so you don't have to worry. When you get the opportunity give your best. Percentage criteria is set just for filtration as they get numerous job applications. All that is important to get a job is your knowledge and confidence. Also communication skills to some extent.
Usually companies will have a written aptitude test in first round. So you should be good in aptitude as well to qualify for further rounds. Once you have qualified 1st round, they test your Technical skills. So work hard in aptitude and improve your Technical skills and you will definitely get a job.

Since applications for jobs are submitted taking the last qualification as eligibility criteria, the percentage of last qualification matters. However the most important factor to be considered is that the jobs are never offered on the basis of percentage of marks alone. Many other factors, the most important being technical competence, attitude and personality traits matter.
The author should search for jobs and follow the procedure prescribed for the same, keeping the percentage factor aside. In case there is any written examination, then the marks scored in that examination will be a crucial factor. Generally it will be possible to know about the nature of job by going through the published advertisement. Focused attention should be paid on such aspects as during the personal interview, in case called for, more questions related to the nature of job are likely to be asked instead of the whole syllabus studied during the degree course.
From practical point of view, it is advisable that any available job should be joined even if that is a low paid one , job location is away from the comforts of home and the company is not a MNC. Simultaneously, efforts maybe continued for getting a better job.

The perentage criteria varies from companies to companies and when they visit for college placement some of them have few rounds like aptitude, group discussions and personal interview without considering percwntage and backlogs of the students.
But the big conpanies which comes under maharatna and navratna like BHEl, Power grid corperation of India,SAIL,GAIL,NTPC,ONGC e.t.c also consider a student on the basis of GATE examination.
Some companies also provude AMCAT exams results also a way to get entry in them.

Each MNC company has it's own criteria for the off campus hiring. In case of experience based hiring, there is no set criteria for the education and your experience gets you through the interview.

Most common criteria found on the job ads is -

1. 60% aggregate in the graduation
2. 10th and 12th 60%

In some cases the percentage of the 10th and 12th are ignored. And that depends on the company. Not all of them are same. In some companies the hiring is based on the interview performance too, so the percentage are often waved.

Some companies that hire the post graduate students may require their post graduate percentage. In some cases those hiring the MBA graduates will ask for the CAT marks too. So it depends on the companies. But most of the companies requires 60% on graduation. It is the requirement for most of them.
