Average package

An article in the economic times gave the following data that was some food for thought.

Average starting salary for,

IITian in India = Rs. 2.4 lacs pa

IIMite in India = Rs. 6 lacs pa

IITian in the US = $40k pa

Engg. PhD = $60-70k pa

Finance PhD = $140k pa

Of course the IT field is an exception and salaries there may not fall under this categorization and remember, this is just an average

  1. Is it now really worth to work so hard to get into IIT after facing such a huge compitition for meagre 2.4 lakhs??? An IITian does deserves more than this…
