Chennai: Social networking site Facebook has offered a package of Rs 38 lakh (USD 85,000) for IIT Madras students during the ongoing placement season, a top official of the institute said.
Companies selecting prospective candidates from the country’s premier educational institute IIT Madras began on December 1.
