Hi folks, I have been working in Singapore for the past 2 years and i am looking to relocated to Chennai in a PM capacity.. I have around 11+ years of experience and 3 years as PM. I am in the process of evaluating what CTC should i opt for and i am going nowhere, i am also not sure what kind of market is there in Chennai at the moment.... any nerds could help?

Don't know myself, but welcome to JavaRanch and good luck with the job hunt.

You have been a bit sparing with the details; you might get better responses with more details.

Market in Chennai is both good and bad.
There are a lot of IT companies comping up in the various tax exempt zones identified. However recruitment at this time is fair slow due to the general slow down in market.
Bigger players (cannot take company names due to forum policies) will keep taking folks in, however you may not get the CTC you expect.
If your priority is moving to Chennai NOW (or even changing your job NOW) be ready to negotiate on your CTC. However if your priority is only MOVING to Chennai, you might want to wait until the market picks up a little.
Try going through consultants they shall be of help. Here is a link (not sure if i'm allowed to provide this here)

thanks for the responses.. i have decided to move to chennai but i have given myself a timeline of 3 months.. ya.. i too feel i wont get the CTC i need at this stage.. but i have time in my hand as i am not in a great hurry but having plans to move before October.. In the meantime i am appearing for my PMP exam during September.. hope that enhances my chances of clinching the CTC in my mind.. but it looks like most of the good opportunities come from bangalore.. but i am in a position only to move to chennai and nowhere in india.. thanks once again for your time mates...
I agree. Here's the link:
