Infosys said in a circular that he would have an annual base salary of $900,000 and an annual variable pay of $4.18 million and will be eligible to receive stock option of $2 million, making his total package including stock options $7.08 million (Rs 42.1 crore).

Outgoing CEO Shibulal drew a salary of $ 26,000 (Rs 15.48 lakh). However, dividend from his stock option was worth $13 million (Rs 77.4 crore) last year.

Sikka’s salary at Infosys still pales in comparison with global majors. The Microsoft CEO gets $18 million a year and IBM $ 16.2 million.

At SAP, Sikka had an annual salary of 4.23 million euro (Rs 34.2 crore).
