Have you thought of taking the Kickstarter or indiegogo route .Student entrepreneurs do tend to test the waters on crowdsourcing platforms , Coz i think it helps them to prepare a basic pitch and work on their technology simultaneously , with minimal intervention from investors and less risk .

For an example Check out Pure.Charger by Future Crew Team @ Kaspersky Lab on @Kickstarter http://kck.st/1tyc7YD

Did u check for Indian crowdsourcing sites ?
One reason u could be facing an issue is the density of networking startups,and tech startups is actually lesser when compared to ecommerce, utility startups and it service providers , which are now booming in our country.
The reason why crowdsourcing might suit you is you mentioned you are operating in project mode right now, and you need a very simple no frills attached approach to Transforming your project into a commercially viable product or at least a minimum viable product for a demo to industry satraps.
I do have a friend from engineering who is an experienced C programmer and a networking & security freelancer now living in Australia. In my earlier discussions he had appraised me about the challenges of starting a networking related venture in India .
Why don’t u create a pitch deck and send it to me ?
I can introduce you to my friend if there is meat in your proposal !

actually i am a last year student of comp engineering so we have to make a project by the year end so whatever ideas I had were too big for a project purpose. so I thought if any company is looking to build a new product we can do that for them under the terms that we get to represent it as our project and then we can think of improving that as a startup or a product

I’m not sure I follow you… If I understand the final year project scenario its your opportunity to intern at a company of your choice on one of their projects / sub projects with a team of your college mates, which is the BEST possible way to startup . Building a like minded team is the single biggest hurdle tech startups face.
