Major IT companies, Infosys, Wipro and Tech Mahindra, have revoked offer letters it extended to students after the companies are delaying the onboarding process for months, according to a media report. The students, according to the report, said they have not been given any grounds for rejection.
Pavitra (name changed), an engineering graduate from Bhopal, got mail on September 28 from Infosys informing her about rejection, six months after receiving the offer. “It has been identified that you are not meeting our academic eligibility criteria. Hence your offer stands null and void," according to a Businessline report, quoting the mail from the company.
