Guy Shares How Tech Mahindra Offered Only ₹3.25 LPA Package For Software Engineers

Engineering graduates in India, especially software engineers, often face the challenge of comparatively low earnings in the global tech industry. Despite their expensive degree, skill and talent, factors like fierce competition, a vast talent pool, and cost-cutting outsourcing practices by MNCs have led to very modest salary packages for freshers. These entry-level software engineers end up earning much less as compared to SWEs in Western countries. Here is an example.

A guy named Niku Singh shared how Tech Mahindra came to their college campus for placements and offered Rs 3.25 lakh per annum (roughly 27k a month) package for the role of a software engineer. The candidate will also have to sign a 2-year bond.

Responding to this post, several people shared how these kinds of packages were offered to engineering graduates more than 10 years back. The fact that the salaries of freshers at tech companies haven’t increased despite the prices of literally everything going up every year seems unreasonable, exploitative and downright despicable.

Here’s a look at some of the reactions:

Families of engineering students pay thousands, even lakhs, every year as college fees. To see freshers receive such low packages is truly upsetting.
