Ya it's a good Question, I see many people have this problems when they get multiples of offers from different companies " As a Recruiter I Always Advice you to tell the truth that if your not  interested in the Current offer because you may have another offer Which can be better than this so that the HR Team may Hire someone else or they may also  give you better Compensation to feel you comfortable "
Openly speaking if you give valid reason for decline the offer the   HR Team  may look for other resources by not wasting their time and you too can also focus on your opportunity. So always think like a professional and go Ahead in your career...
Remember not to give any false statements because it may lead you to difficult situation ...

Genuinely thank them for extending the offer and appreciate them for the time they have invested in evaluating you. Give reasons why at this time you are unable to consider the offer they have made, end your note with a positive tone.

Evaluate all your options before you choose to decline an offer, make sure that your reason for declining an offer is compelling enough. Remember that the people involved in making you an offer have spent time and effort in extending one to you, therefore be polite and courteous. State the reason why came to this decision truthfully and professionally,  a mismatch with the role offered, salary or even that you found some other role that is closer to your aspirations. Sharing the reason is helpful for the company, if there are too many declines the company can take some remedial actions. From your part, don"t leave the declining too late, that puts immense pressure on the entire bunch of hiring team who worked on your offer and sets the company back by a few months.

Understand that declining an offer is a very normal thing and you don't have to feel guilty about it. Think of the hiring process as a mechanism where both the company and the candidate are evaluating each other. However, it is important to share your decision as early as possible without keeping them in the dark, so that they may continue pursuing other candidates too.

Don't delay it. As a recruiter, I have seen too many offers declined at the last moment (sometimes even on the day of joining!) That's not professional at all. Declining an offer within a reasonable time frame is perfectly fine. If you are a great candidate, we already know that multiple companies will be pursuing you.

Before declining the offer, be absolutely sure about it. Thank them for the offer and give them a brief reason for declining. Be appreciative of the hiring process and the time they have spent to interview/ hire you. In case there is some specific positive feedback, feel free to share that. for example, you can say "I particularly appreciate how prompt you have been to respond to all my queries". Also, if someone had referred you to that job, (they may not have been directly involved in the hiring process), be sure to call and update them on your decision.

The best thing to do while declining an offer is to keep it short and simple. Tell them that you are accepting another offer, thank them for their time and offer to stay connected on LinkedIn.
