1 US Dollar = 0.48370 Cyprus Pound
that means 1 Cyprus pound = apprx. 2 US $
and 1 Cyprus pound = 98 Indian Rupees(Assume 100 for timebeing)
so you are getting 12,000 Cyprus pounds.Subtracting Food,Tax,Car etc,if could save 3,000 pounds means 300000 India Rupees .
Go to Cyprus.

Where in India do you get 4L/pa for 1 year exp?
Where are you supposed to relocate for Amdocs? I believe amdocs has its operations in India as well.

In Cyprus for 12000 pounds,there will be 20% income tax.Also 6.3% social security+3% for defence and others.
So for one year,income will be 80% of 12000 - 6.3% of 12000+3% of 12000
Your total income will be 8484 pounds.
Food+Car+housing+entertainment =? may be half of above at the most.
You have 4000 pounds ,almost 400000 Indian Rupees.

Hi All,

Thansk for all the response... I would like to give nmore information,....

I currently get 4 lakhs /annum from oracle and the job is in Cyprus. One important thing is that I am engaged to be married and my fiance is getting 3 lakhs and is with IBM. If I move, it would mean that she has to quit her job and come with me...

So, in India effectively we are drawing 7 lakhs /annum of which I can comfortably save 4 lakhs.... I also heard that there is some provision of getting ones spouse into amdocs theo some refferal or something... I am not sure if this is true...

So considering that currently only I have been offered a job there.. any insite into how the job market is in cyprus... would it be a wise decision to move to cyprus would be greatly appriciated...

And one more thing... How much would it cost 2 ppl to stay in Cyprus... ( assume non-lavish lifestyle)

Thanks a ton...

hi Kabana,
I am Vijay. I have written the Amdocs test through
the consultancy called SearchHouse. They are recruiting fresh engineers
to Amdocs Cyprus with posting directly in Cyprus itself.
Am confident of getting called for the interview.
I wanted to know what type of questions were you asked
in the interview and how to prepare for it.
Is there any bond that you have to sign with Amdocs.
Right now I have a TCS job in my hand, in case I get the Amdocs
should I leave TCS and join Amdocs. Please reply.

Cyprus Tax


Sorry for my ignoance guys, but where is this Cyprus?
Arjun, you seem to know quite a lot about taxes and expenses there.
Is it really possible to cover all expenses within 40000 pounds?

Before catching a jet to Cyprus,remember that foreign workers may need to work longer hours.More than 7 hours a day and 6 days a week.Cyprus is contravening Human Right Acts.Foreign workers are NOT given annual increases.
See the last letter
Why Amdocs is hiring now?
So those who work for TCS should not have any problem! .
Those who like 'modeling' should its not a problem. .

No idea.But lets investigate few items so we can get an idea how much these Cyprus going folks should purchase 'here' instead of spending money 'there'.

(Chrome plated Soap box-- priced at 1pound thats 98 rupees,Kabana,what are you going to do?purchase 'here' or 'there'?)


This is toilet pater stand(chrome plated) priced at 4 pound.
Furniture anyway you need to purchase 'there'.

This is dinner plate priced at 4 pound(I think one should carry plates from 'here')


You need to eat cake and puddings on week end?price-1 pound,I think 'there'.


Sleeping bag--29 pounds(You can't carry it from 'here').
I think now you got an general idea how much it costs in Cyprus.

hi Arjun,
how come you know so much about Cyprus???
and how did u come across that annual increase for foreigners.
i went through that page and its shocking. But I guess
when u work for Amdocs bulk of the time will be spent away from Cyprus
in the adjacent European cities and others. Because most of their
work is mostly onsite. So ppl. should not have a problem. and Arjun
where are u currently working. and which is better TCS or Amdocs to work.

. No.I was working in Electronic City for sometime but not now!

Google Search.I really don't which one is better TCS/Amdocs.I think those who are not married should try Amdocs-Cyprus atleast for a year.Amdocs as all people have said is Product company unlike TCS which is pure offshore I think.Writing on resume that you worked in Cyprus for amdocs definitely will not hurt.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
