Not just Chandigarh, the whole nation was rejoicing over the incredible feat of a 12th standard pass out, government school educated 16-year-old young boy, Harshit Sharma, bagging a job at Google for whooping Rs. 1.44 crore, but who would have thought that IT WOULD TURN OUT TO BE FAKE NEWS.
The parents of the boy called the Chandigarh authorities to admit that it was a mistake.
What the Google had to say?
Earlier the search giant had denied having any record of Harshit being hired for any job in Google. The official spokesperson of Google said,
“CURRENTLY, WE DON’T HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON OUR RECORDS WITH RESPECT TO HARSHIT SHARMA’S CANDIDACY.”
The Uncalled Celebrations
On July 29, in a press release of GMSSS-33 it was said that their student, Harshit Sharma, got the job of icon designer with Google for Rs. 12 lakh per month. It was said as a national achievement.
It was claimed that under Google’s special programme, he would be trained initially for a year. During this period, he would receive a stipend of Rs 4 lakh per month. On completing the training, he would receive Rs 12 lakh per month and he had been asked to join by mid-August in US.
