 What is the starting salary in Cognizant?

Cognizant hires engineering freshers in two profiles. One is the regular profile for which they recruit in bulk named as GenC and the other is for Research and Development called GenC Next.

For their GenC profile, the starting salary for engineering freshers is Rs 4.5 lakh per annum. This is also the highest among service-based IT companies in India currently.
