Salil Parekh, the newly appointed CEO of Infosys, will get about half the compensation received by his predecessor Vishal Sikka, who quit in August after a three-year stint.

 

Parekh, a former Capgemini executive, is the second non-founder CEO of the Bengaluru-based software exporter.

The CEO is being paid a total compensation of Rs 260 million.

This, still, is low compared to the Rs 480-million package that Sikka commanded.

Here is a look at the salaries of top IT firms’ CEOs:
