Rashi Bagga, a B.Tech student of the International Institute of Information Technology Naya Raipur (IIIT-NR), has scripted history by securing a job package of a whopping Rs 85 lakh per annum. This is the highest package offered to any student of IIIT-NR in 2023.

Rashi's achievement is not just a personal triumph but marks the highest salary package ever accepted by a student from IIIT-NR, thereby setting an unprecedented benchmark in the institute’s placement records for 2023.

Interestingly, Rashi Bagga was already offered a good package by another company a few days ago but according to a India Today report, Rashi Bagga was interested in appearing in other job interviews and she ultimately succeeded in bagging a record job offer.

The IIIT media coordinator said that Rashi Bagga was interested in appearing in other job interviews even though she was satisfied with her earlier job offer as well. According to reports, the same company which has selected Rashi Bagga this year had selected Chinky Karda from IIIT-NR last year for a package of Rs 57 lakh per annum. The salary offered to Chinky Karda was the highest package in her batch.

Another student of IIIT-NR, Yogesh Kumar, has also succeeded in receiving a job offer of Rs 56 lakh per annum for a software development engineer role. Yogesh Kumar has landed a job offer from a multinational company.

In 2020, an IIIT-NR student, Ravi Kushashwa had bagged a job offer of Rs 1 crore per annum from a multinational company but he could not join the company due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to IIIT-NR’s placement office, the average CTC for this year's batch has been revised to Rs 16.5 lakh per annum and the median CTC was Rs 13.6 lakh per annum.
