Average salary in India of IIT and NIT graduates

The average salary of graduates of the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology has dropped by five % while that of the National Institutes of Technology graduates has increased by six %.

The average salaries of IIT graduates has dropped by 5% to Rs 5.88 lakh in 2009, according to the 5th IDC-Dataquest T-School 2009 Survey of 111 engineering colleges across the country.

Though the drop in the annual salary of IIT graduates has been ascribed to global recession, according to the survey, interestingly the average salary of NIT graduates has improved by 6% to Rs 4.36 lakh.

"Another reason for the drop in the annual salary of IIT graduates is that many bright students of IITs opted for higher studies instead of entering the job market," the survey pointed out.
The highest annual salary received by an engineering graduate was from Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT), New Delhi, who received Rs 45 lakh from Schlumberger, the survey said.

Due to the global slowdown, the average annual salary of engineering graduates countrywide stagnated at Rs 3.5 lakh.

But the average annual salary of engineering graduates in BPO/ IT industry was a shade higher at Rs 3.6 lakh.
