Want a salary hike? India's your place- The Economic Times: "ndia reported the highest average salary increase at 13.9 per cent, and employees in the Indian IT-enabled industry received the highest increase at 17.9 per cent, according to the India Salary Guide 2006 released by Kelly Services, a global provider of staffing services and solutions, on Monday.
