Google offers IIT student Rs 1.7 cr

Software giant Google has offered an annual package of Rs 1.7 crore to a Jaipur boy pursuing his engineering from IIT Mandi in Himachal Pradesh.

Shubham Ajmera, 23, is the second student to be offered such a huge pay package this month. Ten days ago, Jaipur-based Astha Agarwal was offered an annual package of Rs 2 cr by Facebook.

Shubham is pursuing his last semester of engineering from IIT Mandi, and is currently interning with a prominent company in Bengaluru.

He will join the job as “Software Engineer In Test” at the Google headquarters located at Mountain View in California. “Shubham had given an online test for this position, which was followed by five rigorous rounds of interview. After he cleared all the tests, Google offered him an annual package of Rs 1.7 crore.

He will join in May next year,” said his father K C Ajmera, chief manager with National Bearing Company in Jaipur.

Shubham was offered good jobs by two other companies as well, but he has decided to join Google, added the proud father. Jubilations are on in full swing at Shubham’s residence in the Sanganer area of Jaipur.

Mother Sunita and other family members said Shubham had cleared IIT entrance exam in 2011 ranked 4,289. He was slightly dissatisfied with his performance as he was aware he might not get admission in any of the prestigious IITs with that rank.

“Shubham was clear that he would not waste another year preparing for IIT. He was keen to take admission in computer science, and IIT Mandi was the best option,” said his father.

In college, Shubham started focusing on strengthening his skills in the subject of his core interest.

“Whenever he came home for vacations, he would spend time with books on computer science and IT that were not part of his curriculum. He was crazy about the subject since school,” said Ajmera.

Shubham has now become a source of inspiration for his elder brother and sister, who are preparing for chartered accountancy examinations.
Shubham could not be contacted over the phone.
