IT highest-paying sector in India: Study
NEW DELHI: Information Technology sector employees get the highest pay in India with a median gross hourly salary of Rs 346.42, while those in the manufacturing sector get paid the least at Rs 254.04, says a report.
According to Monster Salary Index (MSI), the IT sector is the highest paying sector in India, but only 57.4% are satisfied with their salary.
BFSI sector comes in second with a median salary of Rs 300.23. The relatively higher remuneration reflects the high level education of workers with 16-17 years of schooling, the report noted.
“The IT and BFSI sectors have always been among the highly paid in India but it is surprising that over 50% of employees in both these sectors are least satisfied with their salaries,” Sanjay Modi, Managing Director of Monster.com India said.
