The starting salary level differs a lot and varies on multiple factors such as:




1. location of the job (where you will be working, it is more in Bangalore, Chennai and less in Delhi-NCR and hyderabad)


2. company where you are applying


3. your roles and responsibilities


4. tools knowledge


5. need/urgency with company


6. company domain (companies in networking, telecom, and embedded world offer more salary as compared to others)




it also depends on:



1. job title (API/SDK writer get more salary as compared to normal technical writers)


2. your past experience, if you are from tec support background, chances are yo will get higher starting salary as compared to your peers.




It can vary from 2.00 - 5.00 lakhs (INR) per annum. Average starting salary as per STC India survey of year 2012 is 2.6 lakhs.For more details, you can refer to the various salary surveys of STC-India.




I hope this information is of some help to you.
