Suzuki Motors has hired over 460 students of Industrial Training Institute (ITI), Berhampur, as a part of its offline campus drive amid the coronavirus pandemic. The selected candidates will join the company with a package of Rs 19,400 per month, ITI Berhampur principal Dr. Rajat Kumar Panigrahy said today.
