Years of Experience Median Salary (in lakhs per year INR)

Beginner 1.75 L to 3 L

2-3 2.4 L to 4.2 L

3-5 3.3 L to 5.5 L

5-10 4.5 L to 8 L

10+ 6 L to 12 L

Computer Engineers with specialized skills set are often paid more. In case one has the work experience of working abroad, it will pay you more. The cities also have variations in terms of salaries. Hyderabad and Bangalore - which are called as IT hubs have more salaries than other cities.

Salaries also vary according to the companies that you are working in. Some of the internet giants like - Google, Amazon, facebook pay huge amounts while the other IT outsourcing players like Infosys, TCS pay much lesser. The recruitment process in more lucrative jobs is often rigorous which is quite obvious.
