This IIM has 2 advantages, one is the least fees among all IIMs and second is IIM Kozhikode mentorship. IIM Bodh Gaya, IIM Sirmaur, IIM Sambhalpur, IIM Visakhapatnam, IIM Nagpur, IMI Delhi, DOMS IIT Madras, JBIMS, Sydenham, SIIB, Great Lakes, TAPMI etc. are closest competitors and options in comparison.
If a Non-IIM is offering better placement opportunities with good infrastructure, then should you reconsider new IIMs? The answer can be yes because some students are IIM tag oriented whereas a quality student will overlook the tag in front of opportunities.
The decision should be based on proper research but considering the less fee of this IIM, it definitely takes away my vote.
