Is ₹1 lakh monthly salary a big deal for young professionals?
Young professionals tell how they manage with the salary that has been a benchmark for a successful career.
Hyderabad resident Surya Chaudhary earns a little over ₹1 lakh every month, a milestone he aspired for since the beginning of his career five years ago.
While he is able to afford a comfortable lifestyle with that salary, he says it is conservative when compared to what he had expected.
“I cook my own breakfast as the maid charges ₹1,500 extra," he says.
In FY23, Infosys is expected to hire 50,000 people from college campuses.
Chaudhary starts his day with a trip to CultFit gym (it cost him ₹10,000 for a four-month subscription).
He commutes to work by an electric scooter, which he bought in January for ₹90,000, after he was asked to return to the office post pandemic.
“My office is only 5 km away but cab fares have soared, and cost ₹120- ₹150 even for short distances,"
