Question for Indians


#1

Just want to know what’s a respectable salary in an India. I am not talking about salaries of people in IITs/IIMs - but for the average person - say, someone with an engineering degree from a regional college and working at an IT company, 10 -15 years experience. And mention in Rupees please, not in dollars :slight_smile: How much does an average middle class/ upper middle-class person make in our country?

(I really don’t know, because I have been out of touch with what’s happening in the rest of the country and don’t have too many contacts/friends, also the information on the internet is not consistent, so this is an honest question).

Wouldn’t this vary from region to region? I mean I don’t know anything about this so I am nosy and interested, too.


#3

Yeah, I live in Bangalore, which is one of the most expensive cities, next only to Mumbai and Delhi…I am sure smaller cities and towns are are less expensive and lower salaries.


#4

Thing is, I don’t know what I make from freelancing is an average salary/good salary/great salary…because I really don’t know how it’s like in India. When I read newspapers, they go on and on about how IIT//IIM grads were signed up by a big company for $100k and then you have stories of how tens of thousands of people applies for a government peon’s position…so what about the average person? There’s so much conflicting information!
