Students from various colleges of South India protested in front of L&T Infotech, a group company of Larsen & Toubro Ltd (L&T), in Whitefield with the demand of getting their job back.
L&T Infotech had selected almost 5000 students through campus interview in 2015. L&T Infotech rolled out the offer of intent along with the salary structure to all these students in early 2015. Due to the policy of the collages, these students could not attend other campus interviews after being selected by L&T Infotech. While over 3000 students have been taken in, still 1500 students where yet to get there joining date.
In March 2016, students received an email to appear for another online assessment. Almost 90% of students who had appeared for the assessment could not qualify and were sent an email stating that the letter of intent issued earlier to them stood cancelled. There has been no such incident previously in any Indian IT services company, where the recruits were asked to appear for another round of test after campus selection.
The students have wasted their initial 1.5 years of career waiting for joining date. They are now demanding to get their job immediately and also compensation for the 18 months which they lost. Students had started to distribute pamphlets with their demands to all the IT employees of Whitefield location. They are having different plackets like “Give us the promised Jobs. Don’t Spoil India’s Talent”. Management of L&T Info tech tried their best to stop this protest. They had sent their security personnel and later they also called police. But the students carried on their protests and were not afraid at all. After 3 hours of non violent protest, they went back with a small hope to hear a positive response from the employer.
