In the job letter from IndiGo which she suspected to be fake, Amruta was asked for pay Rs. 2,500 as refundable deposit. She tagged Mumbai Police and IndiGo Airlines to her tweet for clarification wondering if the letter is a fraud.
IndiGo Airlines responded to Amruta confirming that the confirmation of job interview, that is, the letter and the SMS is indeed a fake and that IndiGo had not asked people to pay Rs. 2,500 as a deposit.
IndiGo said, “Hi! Please be informed that this is not issued by the company”.
