Highest Paid Finance Director in India

Highest Paid.... Who do not want to be the highest paid employee in the organisation. I searched on google "highest paid finance director india" and surprised with the result. "No Finance director on the search."

The results were:
  • Mukesh Ambani's annual package $6.25 million (Rs. 25 crore)
  • Peter Chernin, president and chief operating officer of News Corp notching up salary, stock awards, pension benefits and other compensation worth $34m
  • Madras Cement’s Rajha is highest paid executive Rs24.78 crore
  • T V Mohandas Pai, director (human resources) at Infosys was the highest paid employee of the Bangalore based IT bluechip in 2006-07 and drew $58,263, which was the highest remuneration in Infosys per annum.
  • Krishak Bharati Cooperative Limited (Kribhco): The society has so far paid Rs 881.14 crore dividend to its shareholders, out of which Rs 616.05 crore was paid to the Government of India. This is the highest dividend paid by any Cooperative Society to the exchequer. Besides, Kribhco has also made a contribution to the exchequer of Rs 3527.42 crore by way of taxes, duties, dividend, etc up to March 31, 2004—again the highest in the cooperative sector in India.
  • Sujit Mundul, CEO and director of Standard Chartered Bank in Nepal, draws the fattest pay cheque with salary, allowances and bonuses adding to an impressive NRS 12.45 million (Rs.0.77 crore) in 2005-06, the Kathmandu Post reported.
  • Naina Lal Kidwai, a renowned Banking Guru, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of HSBC Securities & Capital Markets is unarguably the highest-paid women executive in India and one of the country's foremost businesswomen.
My search did not categorically show any Highest Paid Financial Controller or Director in India.

Some of articles gave a insight of salaries drawn by financial controllers across the world:

  • Personnel Today: A survey conducted by Mercer Human Resource Consulting found that US-based HR directors earn an average base pay of £99,900, with UK directors earning £90,700, and their German counterparts £88,400. In India, the average pay falls to £29,346.

Poll : Does CIMA, UK qualification add value

Poll : Does pursuing CIMA, UK qualification add value to a member of ICWAI, India ? Vote on the poll and share your thoughts by commenting the blog. Poll: Vote here I feel that if you are a member of ICWAI and you pursue CIMA, UK qualification, you are not adding any value to your skills since you will be learning the same. Once you are qualified, you are still a Cost & Management Accountant but from UK. For an employer, I would still have same skills and training on Management Accounting. However if you pursue qualification like Company Secretary or CPA or ACCA , your skills are enhanced with the knowledge gained during training and passing of exams. After qualification, you are bound to follow the CPD programs of ICWAI and other institute. In competitive world, employer look for people with multiple skills. Which one promotes you as professional better against your name: AICWA, ACMA or AICWA, ACS or AICWA, CPA or AICWA, ACCA Widgets Regards, Santosh

Learning Curve Theory

Learning Curve Theory is concerned with the idea that when a new job, process or activity commences for the first time it is likely that the workforce involved will not achieve maximum efficiency immediately. Repetition of the task is likely to make the people more confident and knowledgeable and will eventually result in a more efficient and rapid operation. Eventually the learning process will stop after continually repeating the job. As a consequence the time to complete a task will initially decline and then stabilise once efficient working is achieved. The cumulative average time per unit is assumed to decrease by a constant percentage every time that output doubles. Cumulative average time refers to the average time per unit for all units produced so far, from and including the first one made.

According to Kotter and Schlesinger (1979), there are four reasons that certain people are resisting change : Parochial self-interest (some people are concerned with the implication of the change for themselves ad how it may effect their own interests, rather than considering the effects for the success of the business) Misunderstanding (communication problems; inadequate information) Low tolerance to change (certain people are very keen on security and stability in their work) Different assessments of the situation (some employees may disagree on the reasons for the change and on the advantages and disadvantages of the change process) Kotter and Schlesinger set out the following six (6) change approaches to deal with this resistance to cha
