The remuneration for 2009-10 fiscal to Tulsi Tanti, among the richest persons in Asia with a net worth of USD 930 million in 2008 as per the Forbes magazine, is still higher than any other director of REpower, according to the annual report of Germany-based firm, which is controlled by India's Suzlon Energy.

Apart from Tanti, the payment of one of the board members, Alf Trede, also declined in FY'10. Trede saw his salary falling to 16,000 euros in FY'10 from 17,417 euros in 2008-09.

But, other directors of the company saw their pay packages rising from the levels in 2008-09. The remuneration of Girish R Tanti, one of the key supervisory board member, increased to 16,000 euros from 12,750 euros.

Like any other German company, REpower has a dual administrative structure, consisting of the executive board and supervisory board. The two boards saw their collective payments rising from the levels in 2008-09.

The company's total supervisory board remuneration rose to 1,20,000 euros in 2009-10, from 1,17,125 euros, and commission paid to executive directors also grew to 19,28,118 euros from 16,63,743 euros.

Moreover, the members have claim to variable compensation of 1,000 euro for each full percentage point by which the consolidated earnings margins before taxes and interest determined has increased compared with the previous year.

The variable remuneration may be capped at an amount of 20,000 euros per fiscal year," it added.

While the report said the chairman of the supervisory board and is entitled to receive twice the aforementioned remuneration, the deputy chairman of the board is entitled to receive one and a half times such remuneration.

Tulsi Tanti's pay included 30,000 euros fixed salary and 2,000 euros variable remuneration.
