Private sector Indian companies are offering high salaries to employees to retain the best talent. Reports reveal that corporate India recorded its highest rise in salaries at 22% in the first half of 2006-07.

Private banks too offer huge pay packets to their employees, making it impossible for state-run banks to compete and attract the right talent. The lack of a good compensation package has been cited as a reason for their poor performance.

Do you think Indian public sector and government employees are paid well? Or is there a need to increase their salaries and bring them at par with private sector pay scales? Do you think higher salaries to government employees could weed out bribery and corruption?
