In a city like Bangalore for 4+ the CTC can go upto 8.5L in normal circumstances.
My friend just went into a consulting company and got this salary.
But getting a higher salary would be possible with product development companies and with startups who are big on hiring.
There are pros and cons of the same.
Pros are that getting into startup gives you loads of direct exposure to the technologies and the entire process of delivering the product from the requirements to the production deployment.
But the cons on getting a very high salary is that after a time, most of the companies are not able to afford you as there is some parity levels at the established organizations.
So choose the company that you want to work with and also give an equal weightage to the quality of work and the salary. It will help you gain more in future.
All the best for your future.
