TOP 10 CEO Compensation
How much money is enough money? What do people do with tons of money? Should corporate CEOs get the kind of compensation package that they in fact get?
THESE ARE CONTROVERSIAL questions. While there is no denying that in a market economy every man should earn what he can by means that are right and legal, there is the larger issue of comparing that with men who are equally talented but not fortunate enough. There is also the point that too much of disparity between the CEO and the Janitor can over time lead to social turbulence.
 Here’s a look at the compensation of some of our hotshot CEOs.

His name is Jindal, Naveen Jindal. The chairman and managing director of Jindal Steel and Power Limited, who in recent times was in news over a reverse sting, reportedly draws Rs 6.12 crore a month. That’s about Rs 73 crore per annum . For sure, it’s aggressive even if he is leading the charts, second time running.

Kalanithi Maran: Executive Chairman Sun TV Network and Kaveri Maran, Executive Director at Sun TV network. With a pay check of 57.01 crore each per annum the Marans came second in the sweep stake. Unbelievable is the fact that this despite a fall of 11.5 per cent in their earnings. But remember the duo have built the media empire from scratch.

Pawan Munjal, MD and CEO of Hero MotoCorp Limited, was instrumental in bringing about technological and managerial excellence in the company’s operations. An avid golfer, Pawan Munjal took home Rs 34.47 crore last year. His latest mission is to steer the company ahead after parting ways with Honda.

Padma Bhushan B M Munjal co-founded Hero Cycles. By 1975 it had become India’s largest bicycle manufacturer and by 1986 had become the world’s top producer of bicycles. In 1984 Munjal started Hero Honda to produce motorcycles and by June 2012 the Hero Group reported record sales of over half a million units per month sold. For his efforts he draws Rs 34.44 crore annually. That’s no small change for sure.

P R Ramasubrahmaneya Rajha, CMD, Madras Cements Limited and the grand old captain of south Tamil Nadu industry, attributes his success to God’s grace, state-of-the-art technology, excellent relations with employees and the experience he gained in the two British companies at the start of his career. He raked home an impressive Rs 29.34 crore.
