The salary of an Architect varies on the basis of educational backgrounds, their skills, expertise and experience. If you are starting your career as a fresher, there is a lot of scope for you. Although your earnings will depend on various factors like - business situations, your career growth and performance. But we can talk amount in general and calculate the earnings. Let's try to figure out the amount that you can earn in the next five years.

1. As a fresher you can get a salary of Rs. 20,000 - Rs. 40,000. Considering the average amount you will be earning Rs. 30,000 per month which makes it 3.60 lakhs per annum. In the first two years you will make a sum of Rs. 7.20 lakhs

2. With experience of two years the salary gets increased to Rs. 30,000-50,000 which means in the next three years, on an average - you would make 4.80 lakhs per annum. That means - 14.40 lakhs in the next three years.

3. Therefore the total earnings for an architect (average estimate) is around 22 lakhs which is not bad at all.

Please note the point again that your expenses will also determine many things. If you don't spend a penny and save all your money - you are good to buy a Mercedes Benz B Class. Wish you all the best.
