Google, the network and services giant, hired two BITS Pilani students for a whopping annual package of Rs. 1.44 crore, the highest Google has ever offered in the country. The package has also become the highest offer made to any Indian student in 2013.
The two students are Thoppilan Romal Devassy and Kannan Sunder, both natives of Mumbai and seventh semester students of the computer science branch in BITS, Pilani. More than 100 students participated in the interview and appeared for seven technical rounds and one written examination which were conducted in the campus.
