Dislike. Leave it on read as long as possible.

Recently, we are seeing 2Cr+ packages being offered to IITs fresh graduates.

I'm wondering
What are the special skills IITians possess that they are par from even 10-15Yoe in other companies while being freshers only?

What work will they do at such companies that they are being offered this much?

What non-IITians with experience should do to get similar salaries?

While I'm aware that ~$100K is average to good salary for fresh graduates in US but some companies offering similar in India!
