Hello my friends, it's a long time I didn't have time to visit the site or do anything other then a job. Now I need your help. I am looking for testers of all kind, among others performance testers for telecom OSS/BSS system that was developed using .Net and Oracle. The salary we offer is above salaries in Eastern Europe and India but bellow Western Europe and US salaries. Recently I recieved CV where it was stated: Current CTC : 6.4 laks Expected CTC : 20 - 40 % My guess is that means: 6.4 laks + 20% = 640 000 Indian Rupees + 20% = 768 000 Rupees = 14927 Euros (www.gocurrency.com) (gross?) salary per year. Can someone let me know if I guessed well. I think I remember from our discussions that 1 lak = 100k. Also if the salary is gross amount what is the tax percent I have to subtract to see what is net salary required. Finally the last question, what are salary ranges in India for testers and .Net programmers? I hope this is right forum to ask such questions.
