Your boss probably thinks you are already overpaid. How do you know s/he isn’t wrong? That’s why, Naukri PayCheck.
One of the reasons we change jobs, move cities, or get a higher education is to earn a higher salary. Sometimes making such changes requires a leap of faith and involves trade-offs that are not easy, and we ask, “Is it worth making this change?” – and we seek that answer in the size of our paycheck . Even those of us who are not making any change ask, “Am I being paid right? What can I do to earn more?”
To figure that out we see what people doing similar jobs are earning. However, often it is difficult to find enough number of people doing similar jobs to correctly compare our salary with. Then how do you know what your chances are of earning more elsewhere?
These questions are age-old, but with Naukri PayCheck, the answers may have never been better. Naukri PayCheck, based on self-reported, consistent and comprehensive salary information across multiple functional areas, experience levels, industries and cities, provides an exhaustive solution to your salary queries.

Now, for all the information that can be gleaned out of this tool, it might take some users a bit of time to figure it all out. So, we suggest you play around with the tool – click on links and dropdowns, add curves, check out the numbers, read the FAQ – basically warm up to the tool, and within a few minutes you should be an expert at it.
Bear in mind that Naukri PayCheck helps you understand how much you could earn, not necessarily how much you should earn. We get compensated according to the qualifications we have earned, the role we are in, the city we live in, the experience we have gained. But what we get paid also depends on our achievements, how well we interviewed, the college we graduated from, and also, a fair bit of luck. Finally, the size of our paycheck also depends on the choices we make – going for that MBA, or switching industries mid-career, etc. It is the sum total of the quantifiable, the unquantifiable, and the choices we make that decides what we earn. Naukri PayCheck, which talks only about the quantifiable, measureable parameters, will tell you what you could earn. It will tell you the possibilities you can explore, should you want to explore them.
We hope Naukri PayCheck aids you well in your decisions regarding your career moves. If it does, let us know. If it doesn’t, let us know how it can.
