Hyderabad: Sneha Reddy, a brilliant student of IIT Hyderabad, who graduated from the reputed institute this year made headlines when she bagged an INR 1.2-crore per annum package with the tech giant Google. Setting new records, this is the highest package ever to be bagged by any student in the history of IIT-Hyderabad since it was first established in the year 2008. Until May, the highest package offered to a student was INR 40 lakh per annum with the average package being placed at around INR 11.5 lakh.
Chosen for the notable Google Intelligence Project, Sneha Reddy has earned the medal under the reputed ‘Excellence in Academics and Co-curricular Activities’ and received it from the honorable President Ram Nath Kovind. She has bagged a total of four gold medals.
Sneha Reddy successfully completed four rounds of tests conducted by the tech giant recently. After acing every round, she needed to travel to the United States for the final round. She couldn’t make the trip, unfortunately, due to some unforeseen circumstances. However, Google decided to hold the test for her online owing to her brilliant performance in the previous rounds. Also acing this, she bagged the whooping INR 1.2-crore per annum package.
Surprisingly, Ibrahim Dalal, the student topped Sneha’s batch, managed to bag a package of INR 35 lakh per annum. While also with Google, Dalal’s package is one that is considerably less than Sneha’s. Dalal also has earned the medal for scoring outstanding CGPA for this academic year.
