Regardless of the surging inflation and global economic conditions, the salaries of Indian employees are likely to rise by 10.4% on average in 2023.

The attrition ratio remained the same as the last year at 20.3 percent, therefore retaining the pressure on salaries. According to the global professional services organization Aon, the trend is expected to go on for the next few more months.
