hi,

I wanted to know the average and maximum package for a Java Developer with 2 - 2.6 years of experience in Java / J2EE development in India. I had asked my boss about my increment and he had asked me how much should a programmer with my experience should get. So, exactly how much should I be getting by now? I live in Bangalore, India.

Thanks

Thanks for replying. I know that exact figure is a "encapsulated entity". . I just wanted to know the general figure, so that I know where do I stand.

Thanks for this equation, will try to follow this one in future.. one thing I wanted to know about the experience part, if I have some extra NON IT experience, can it be added to this or is that irrelevant now?

Depends a lot of organization. I am not sure about the equation though. Best place is usually to check on Glassdoor and other similar sites.

Big sized Companies like Infosys, TCS, Cognizant,Accenture etc . around 3.5 Lacs/Per Annum
Smaller companies will offer you more.
Also, it depends on other factors like
Location: In Cities with more cost of living, like Mumbai, you get paid a bit more as compared to Bangalore
what 'kind' of java you are doing : core java/swing are lesser used than Spring/hibernate/Struts etc. So you get more for the later ones.

The biggest deciding factor is how important are you to the company as a resource.

These are a few pointers I can give.You will get more and accurate statistics on job-related websites.
One I know of is payscale .com

If your boss was not being sarcastic, then I would say this is a golden opportunity. Don't let it go.
Average salary in India usually is 1.6-1.8 times your experience. There are other factors involved as well. Both these points have been rightly mentioned above.
Suppose your salary, as per this calculation, comes to around 5 lakh. Start with 10 and settle for whatever you can. At the end of the day, what really counts is how good are you able to sell yourself and your skill set (and of course how good you really are at your work)

Hmmm.....so the people with core java were able to sell themselves and their skillset better than the ones who say they are good at spring,hibernate etc. ;)

If you are from a reputed college and are a good negotiator, you should be able to get an annual package of 2 * (years of experience). Here are some tips to negotiate salary.

Of course, this varies company and company and location to location. Find out what salary range does the company pay using a tool like Zuby.in
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
