[My Eclat Coach] Are you being paid right?


Naukri PayCheck is based on information from over 10 million anonymous profiles across multiple sectors. It takes your Functional Area, Experience, Industry, City, and Education into consideration to provide you with salary information that is highly personalized and relevant.




It is a neat little app.

I checked out some results for common designations and they seem to be ok. I am guessing these are based on the amounts people enter into their naukri.com profiles. Over the years that I have been a recruiter I have seen a fair share of mistakes (per month fed as per year, lakhs are wrong, thousands missing etc) but I would assume the senior profiles have lesser chances of such mistakes.

Try it out.

Leave your comments about how right or wrong naukri is for your profile or query.
