Next time agree and negotiate after you get the initial offer.

You are right...! Knowing that the IT industry is now offering good packages and that too the call was from CTS, I just gave her the number which I had in my mind thinking that CTS can afford it. But my assumption was wrong. Lesson learnt.

Eventually they won't find anyone good and might have to hire at 20 lpa.

Hope so..!
