Various types of companies including Core companies, IT companies, Financial companies visit our campus for placement and sometimes they offer paid internships also. Generally, the IT companies offer heavy pay package of over 8-10 LPA. The foreign IT and Marketing companies also offer heavy. Some of the heavy packages in my year - D. E. Shaw (32 lpa), Amazon (27 lpa), Goldmansach (22 lpa), Microsoft (21 lpa). But core branches like mine are often not allowed to apply for IT companies. For core companies, the PSUs like BPCL, IOCL offer nearly 15-16 lpa. But other private companies generally offer below 6 lpa as starting salary.
