The proposed package would be more than double his last fiscal remuneration of Rs 27.5 crore (Rs 275 million), which is nearly three-fourth or about 76 per cent of the combined pay package of the company's all directors in fiscal ended March 31, 2011.

As per Bharti Airtel's annual report, released on Monday, Mittal's remuneration rose by about Rs 4 crore (Rs 40 million) or 17 per cent from his 2009-2010 fiscal's package of Rs 23.5 crore (Rs 235 million).
