Aseo specialist Seo-sanpreet Patel, who had been working at a seo program in Bengaluru, was paid Rs 6 lakh as salary increase, he said on Monday.
Patel, whose first salary was Rs 2.5 crore in 2012, has now been paid Rs 5.75 crore as a salary increase.
The company said in a statement that the change was done on the basis of feedback from the team and that the additional salary was paid for a period of six months.
“It was decided that our employee should receive a salary hike in line with the increase in salary of the employees,” the company said.
Patell said he has received no salary increase since he joined the seo-related program last year.
Parel said that he had been receiving salary increase at the company since 2013.
Patels previous pay rise was Rs 1 crore in 2013, but his salary was reduced by half because of the demonetisation of high value currency.
