Avnish Chhikara, 22, had to pay his B Tech fees by giving home tuitions and now he has got a job in Amazon for an annual package of Rs 67 lakh. He said that he would study 10 hours a day after returning from his engineering coaching. This was also the time he applied for an internship at Amazon for a monthly stipend of Rs 2.4 lakh.
Avnish said, "There were times when I had no money to pay my university fees, but I managed somehow, partially by giving home tuitions."
He was offered a job soon after his internship was completed, and he claims that his pay is expected to increase to Rs 1 crore in the coming year. He hopes to inspire and motivate other students through his hard work and dedication.
Prof Anayath, DCRUST the vice-chancellor was full of admiration for Avnish and added that he was happy that a student from a low-income family had accomplished this milestone through hard work. He also hoped Avnish's narrative would inspire other youngsters to achieve greater heights.
