Who are Indias Lowest Paid Executives

first_imgThe top executives of Indian companies appear to be offered less remuneration than MNC’s, even after the companies are listed in BSE top 100 list.According to an analysis by Mint, Chief Executive Officers of Cummins India, Shriram Transport Finance and Federal Bank were among the least paid bosses at ₹24.5 lakh, ₹48.17 lakh and ₹84.99 lakh per annum, respectively. However, the top executives who were also the companies’ promoters were not included in the list.Cummins India’s chairman and managing director Anant J Talaulicar earned around ₹24.5 lakh in FY 2014, which is said to the least remuneration. Cummins is a corporation that designs, manufacture, distribute and service diesel and natural gas engines and related technologies.Shriram Transport Finance’s Managing director Umesh Revankar is the second least paid executive with an annual remuneration of ₹48.17 lakh in the financial year ended in March 2014.Federal Bank’s MD Shyam Srinivasan is in the third position who had an annual salary of ₹84.99 lakh.Of the 20 lowest paid CEOs, about 25% of them were from banks and financial institutions. Ironically, chief executives of banks earn the highest compensation all over.In 2012, The Reserve Bank of India published the guidelines on compensation of whole time directors and chief executive officers. The report said that the policy should cover all areas of compensation structure such as fixed pay, stock, pension plan and so on. The report also added that variable pay should not exceed 70% of the fixed pay in a year.”If you add the long-term incentives paid to bank executives, their compensation levels improve sharply to take them to the top bracket of pay in the country. About 70% of companies have long-term incentives by way of employee stock options or restricted stock units,” Anandorup Ghose, consulting practice leader at Aon Hewitt told Mint.Among the 100 companies included in the survey, salaries of top executives in India ranges from ₹24 lakh to ₹30 crore.Infosys CEO and MD Vishal Sikka, who was appointed in mid June this year, has been offered $5.08 million (₹30 crore) with an additional stock options worth $2 million as an annual compensation. Currently, he is the highest paid CEO of an Indian company.Besides Cummins, Shriram Transport Finance and Federal Bank, names of seven other companies with least paid remuneration to top executives are Sesa Sterlite, Ashok Leyland, Nestle India, Tech Mahindra, Tata Global Beverages, M & M Financials and ABB India.last_img read more

Wall collapse at Indian wedding kills 24

first_imgMap of India. AFPA wall collapsed during a wedding party in western India, killing 24 people including four children, police said today.Guests had taken shelter from a storm under a tin shack that adjoined the wall when it collapsed late Wednesday, local police officer Anil Tank told AFP.”The wall and a tin shed attached to it at the marriage venue collapsed due to a storm,” said Tank, superintendent of police in Bharatpur, the district of Rajasthan state where the disaster occurred.He said another 26 were injured, 15 of them seriously.The Press Trust of India news agency said there were food stalls set up along the wall for the wedding.Rajasthan is one of India’s most arid states, but suffers frequent dust storms during the hotter months.A heatwave has swept across many parts of India in recent weeks, with temperatures reaching 44 degrees Celsius (111 degrees Fahrenheit) in the capital Delhi.Building collapses are common in India, especially during the annual monsoon season.A massive influx of people to cities in search of jobs and a shortage of cheap housing have fuelled the construction of illegal buildings across the country, often with sub-standard material.Millions also live in dilapidated old buildings that often cave in during heavy rains.last_img read more

UPDATE Emails Show Trump Jr Knew Russia Was Working To Support Trump

first_imgDarron Cummings/APDonald Trump Jr. speaks at a campaign stop with his father, then-GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, in April 2016 in Indianapolis.Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday posted online an email exchange that seemed to show the president’s son entertained an offer of Russian government help for his father to be elected president in 2016.“This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump,” said the text that Trump Jr. posted on Twitter.In the messages, an intermediary for Russian business allies of the Trumps offer what they call incriminating information about Hillary Clinton. That eventually led to a meeting between a Russian attorney and Trump Jr., then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.Trump Jr. did not seem bothered by the offer, which brought him and the campaign into a questionable legal area.“If it’s what you say,” Trump Jr. replied, “I love it.”Trump Jr. said in his Twitter post on Tuesday that he was posting the messages “to be totally transparent” and that the Russian attorney with whom he met, Natalia Veselnitskaya, ultimately did not provide Trump Jr. with any opposition research about Clinton.
