List of the 10 highest paid Indian executives working in top companies
Indian executive salary is on par with the executives paid in advanced countries. As per Press Trust of India the highest paid salary to an executive in a private sector company, 2 years back was Rs. 10 crores. This year the salary is becoming double. Below is the list of top 10 highest paid Indian executives.
- A. M. Naik – Executive Chairman of Larsen & Toubro. Tops this chart by receiving Rs 66.14 crores.
- Vishal Sikka – CEO of Infosys. Is on number two with annual compensation of Rs. 48.73 crores. I am guessing his recent letter of disappointment to the employees was because he could not top this chart.
- Desh Bandhu Gupta – Founder & Chairman of Lupin. Missed the second place with just Rs. 2 crores. His last year’s compensation was Rs.44.8 crores.
- Sunil Mittal – Chairman of Bharti Airtel. Received a total remuneration of Rs. 27.8 crores.

- S N Subrahmanyan – Deputy Managing Director and President at L&T. Was paid Rs. 22.12 crores.
- Mukesh Ambani – Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries. Not very happy with this pay, especially when he is paying Rs. 70 lakhs per month towards electricity bill at his new residence. He received Rs. 15 crores.
