IIT Kanpur Student Karan Narain Gets Highest Campus Placement of Rs. 73 Lakh

Karan Narain
Agra's Karan Narain, pursuing M.Tech (final year) in computer science from IIT Kanpur, has set a new record in campus placement. He has been picked up by U.S. company Pocket Gems for an annual package of $137,000 (over 73 lakh).

This is the highest package offered to a Kanpur IITian and one of the highest in India so far.

"Pocket Gems is into mobile application development for Android and iOS. The interviews held in Kanpur were completely technical," Narain told IANS.

"I had some background in Android which could have appealed to them. It's a startup, so has only around 100 employees. They've visited all the IITs and recruited a few students from each," he added.

Narain attributed his success to his schooling in Chennai, Hyderabad, New Delhi and Agra. "All schools are different and gave me a new experience and changed my world view for the better," he said.
