ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the high salaries of chief executive officers (CEO) in India. Compensation for executives increases as the country emerges as the fast-growing market for the world's luxury brands. The supply and demand for managers, as well as the rising trend contributed to the rise in CEO salary. When the rule imposed by the government has gone out regarding with the salaries of directors and CEOs, Indian companies pay their CEOs with the amount they like.
