Q:

What is the average salary in India?

A:

India is a lower-middle income country, and the average worker makes about 720 American dollars per year, or about 2 dollars per day. In terms of Indian rupees, the national currency of the country, the average citizen makes about 36,000 annually.

Each Indian rupee is worth approximately 0.017 dollars, meaning that for every American dollar, one could purchase approximately 62 Indian rupees. Most of India’s gross domestic production flows from its agricultural industries, although many information technology firms and customer service firms that were formerly stationed in the United States are moving to India to benefit from the low cost of labor.
