To get a salary comparison, job-seekers are needed to give details of their profession, current salary and working hours.
This will be reworked every six months. Biju Varkkey, professor of IIM-A who is involved at the project said that IIM-A researchers are handling the India data where raw data is filtered to rid it of extremes.

Especially, in age groups where adequate data is not available, IIM-A researchers have used constant multipliers to correct and smoothen the data.
