Anything is possible. I have seen people with zero technical skills minting money and really talented ones not doing that good. It would depend on how much you are able to impress your prospective employer and how critical their requirement is.

Going by pure maths, this might be a bit difficult. I think the general rule of the thumb is 1.6 times the experience would be the salary.

1.6 times the experience is too low...I don't think thats the average salary for a java developer in India

As suggested by Manish, anything is possible and it depends on the individual.

This is right - at least in our team. you don't probably get paid 8 LP for 2+ experience in an Indian MNC (at least in Chennai!)

Harsha - I said probably.. that doesn't mean you cant get... it depends on your skills... all the best...

but first prefer a good project that adds to your acclaiming technical skills.... good salary don't guarantee you good projects as well...

In India, salaries in other fields are increasing fast while salaries in IT are decreasing. I am not talking exceptions like if you have this skill you can get that salary. I am talking general. Other fields are attracting me a lot. I heard salary in Pharma, some HR heads, earning more than IT with less hard work. It may be grass always looks green at other side.

Regardless of whether 1.6 is the correct multiplier, out of interest, what is the range where this rule of thumb applies?

For example, this wouldn't make sense on the low range, regardless of the multiplier, as that would imply someone with two years makes twice as much as someone with one year of experience.

I agree on this...IT, especially outsourcing model, seems to be losing the sheen of late in India because of huge demand/supply gap as a fallout of financial crisis...
