The recent Delhi-Gang Rape Case has affected the placement cell, where girls have denied jobs in Delhi. Recently a a B.Tech student from IIT Guwahati got a placement with a package of Rs 7.5 INR in an MNC in Delhi, yet she declined the job offer, despite the fact that after rejecting this job offer she will not be able to appear for further job interviews.
Delhi Gang Rape Case is not the first gang rape case, but this horrific act has shook the country into remorse and the girls are now opting for jobs in safer cities and declining Delhi as the option. The student reported that one of her friends is a resident of Vasant Vihar, Delhi who feels scared and unsafe to step out after sunset, when the place is so unsafe for the people living there then how can I feel safe living there hence I have decided not to go with the offer.
Also many of the students, who have been given an option for the cities between Delhi and Mumbai, have opted for Mumbai. And have asked that they would like to avoid Delhi and go for Mumbai.
Career is important but on the cost of life?
The youth is becoming aware and intelligent, the girls have to take smart decisions and help themselves till the government and the police turns up to their help and safety.
