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
