After Flipkart, L & T Infotech has withdrawn 1500 students offer letters from various colleges. According to the report, these students have now gone on a fast to protest against the move made by the company.
L&T Infotech, which earlier offered jobs to as many as 1,500 students, later withdrew the offers citing poor performance. A student quoted in the report claims that the company sent an email saying that their performance was not up to the mark, so the offer was being cancelled.
Many students who were relying on the jobs to repay their education loans are now burdened by repeated calls from the banks.
Earlier, e-commerce major Flipkart had deferred joining dates for campus hires from Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad and Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) citing restructuring of its businesses. According to industry and HR experts, the scenario might bring a lot of pressure on reputation, success and unpredictability of the educational institutions concerned as it disturbs their placement track record.
