DHAKA: India’s Ahmedabad student Smit Sanghvi has bagged an annual salary package of USD 1,15,000 (Rs 93 lakh) plus 125 stock options from Google, US.

This is arguably the highest offer ever that an engineering student from Gujarat has bagged, reports The Times of India.

Sanghvi has been joined by Himanshu Jindal, a computer engineering student from Delhi Technological University, who bagged the same offer from the search engine giant, making it the highest ever offer in the university.

A final year student of information and communication technology from Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology (DAIICT), Sanghvi preferred the company’s headquarters at Mountain View, California for his posting.

He says he was not counting on the massive offer given the economic gloom all around.

‘It is a dream job. All the questions were technical but open-ended, which gave me room to present my skills to the interviewers,’ said Sanghvi.
