Today, an electrician earns as much as an engineer

electrician-at-work

In a country where engineering degrees are chased by many an aspirant, salary statistics thrown up by a leading staffing solutions company come as an eye-opener.

The starting income of an electrician, who is unskilled and perhaps has just cleared Class XII, is Rs 11,300 per month while a desktop engineer, who is an engineering graduate, earns only around Rs 3,500 more. What’s more, the desktop engineer’s salary rises by about the same margin as the electrician’s over a period of time—to about Rs 19,000 in five years, and around Rs 30,000 in eight years. So in about eight years, the electrician too would be comfortably earning over Rs 26,000 per month. Narrowing this salary gap is the severe shortage of workers like fitters, welders, electricians and plumbers on the one hand, and the growing number of engineers trying to get into the IT sector.
