My old cousin did BTech from Manipal Karnataka and got package of 4 lpa He was good at studies and got IT at NIT Agartala but took drop to get CS in decent NIT He said that all Pvt colleges are same except BITS and I should leave VIT Vellore CS for Amity as I will also get mass package Is he true?
At first you can't compare VIT to other colleges like Amity. You didn't mentioned the year he got placed, times have changed and the placements at VIT for CSE are unmatched with exception of BITS. Vellore institute of technology ranks 15 in the nirf engineering rankings and one can't get such high ranks until it excells in each domain.
Vellore institute of technology, Vellore has an average package between 7-8 lacs currently for CSE that will definitely touch 9+ by end of four years. Last year some the top companies hiered 120+ engineering graduates with super dream packages like Microsoft 44,00,000 AppDynamics 39,20,000 D.E.SHAW 35,25,000 UDAAN 35,00,000 WorkIndia 35,00,000 Cloudera 31,33,000 Amazon 29,50,000 Motorq 26,00,000 Morgan Stanley 25,30,000 PayPal 23,80,000 WellsFargoEGS India 20,00,000.
Even the biggest mass recruiter Wipro had an average package 6.5 lacs. So your conception is not true and it is the labour you put which decides the package you will grab.
Hope it helps!!
