You can learn soft skills, reasoning, interviews skill and some basic programming skills. This will prepare you for the IT based jobs. And you can go ahead with the jobs that you wish to do in IT domain. Most likely if you have more interest in programming then you can learn C, Python and Java as that has more demand. You'd be able to get jobs in entry level position. If not technical you can do the job in the testing, tech support and the voice support. Those are also the jobs worth going after. Most likely you'd need to polish your skills so that you'd be able to present yourself for the IT career.

High pay and the growth depends on the company. Some companies have good growth. And some are steady with the business. In such case you'd have to take risks and switch companies. Most of the programming, testing and the backoffice jobs have high pay.

Do note that in the position you get placed decides the pay. Also you have to work harder and go ahead with your life. That is how you can learn how to go with the growth. It takes time but it can be done.

First please be clear about what you want and then take a suitable step towards it.
As you have already done BE with Mechanical specialization, you have better grip on that subject rather than IT field. Many times, we feel abstracted towards other things and take wrong steps. So please make it sure that you want to work in Mechanical branch or IT branch?
With Mechanical specialization also, you can get good jobs in companies like Larson & Turbo. You may add value to your professional profile by doing some short term courses like for Autocad which are designed based courses.

Apart from all that if you still want to quit the mechanical branch and want to get in It field, you can easily get a job after doing some course related to Software tools, language, animation, etc as per your choice.
But keep in mind that a regular degree always pay you more.
