Bangalore: Offer letters from global leaders may not see much excitement further with Rolls Royce, a power systems and services provider's offer letter turning out to be fake. The offers were made to 120 graduates, mostly comprising of IIT alumni.

As reported by Economic Times, the company has denied making any such offers to any student. Reacting to the misuse of the company name, Srinivas Duvvuri, Regional Director of Rolls Royce India said, "As a company, we take any misrepresentation of our name and brand very seriously and will be investigating what happened in this case so that steps can be taken to avoid any further occurrence."

The students were very excited after receiving the offer-letters issued on Rolls Royce letterhead, erasing every doubt on fakeness. It read, "As of the discussions made by us, you have been selected as a Graduate Trainee for our organization with an Annual Pay of $92,000 or 3,85,4000 INR with a bond period of 5 years." The defaulter has also mentioned that further queries regarding the offer will be entertained only through emails. "Since he had got the offer letter and, that too, in the name of Rolls Royce, we were very happy and didn't think of foul play," V Balasubramaniam, Placement Officer Kongu Engineering College, where one of its student K Prasanna was offered. Infact, according to Prasanna, the students were asked to reach Singapore on visit visa with a deposit of 12 lakh for the bond. It was this clause that raised suspicion and finally after further queries the grim truth dawned.
