These jobs offers the highest salaries in India






Bengaluru pays the highest salaries and  it is hardware & networking professionals, not techies, who bag the best pay, says a LinkedIn salary study based on the data on its platform.

The average weighted compensation in Bengaluru is Rs 12 lakh a year, followed by mumbai and Delhi-NCR at Rs 9 lakh each.

Hardware & networking jobs fetch about Rs 15 lakh a year (weighted average, as per importance) while software jobs fetch about Rs 12 lakh, and consumer jobs Rs 9 lakh — making up the three most paying industries in India.

The hardware jobs being paid highly are not the traditional ones, but those in the area of chip design and newage networking, experts said.

Shivananda Koteshwar, head of design R&D at semiconductor tools company Synopsys India, said in the area of VLSI (very-largescale integration), salaries have exploded because a lot of chip design implementation has moved to India.

VLSI is the process of creating an integrated circuit (IC) by combining hundreds of thousands of transistors or devices into a single chip. He said this was particularly true for physical design engineers. “Just 2 years ago, their salaries were 3-times their years of experience, nowadays it is 4.5 to {5|to five} times the experience,” Koteshwar said.

On networking, V C Gopalratnam, CIO (international), Cisco, said the network is at the centre of a maelstrom of change taking place in enterprises and forms the foundation of digital transformation.


“As massive amounts of data continue to be distributed ever more widely, customers are facing challenges around complexity and security. to address this, there is a lot of innovation happening in the networking space and it is {increasingly|progressively|more and additional} becoming more sophisticated. And as the sophistication of networks increase, the demand for networking roles and skills are increasing,” he said.
