After reading this thread i wanted to know what is a good expectation for a 3 and half year J2EE programming person. I have worked on Core Java, Servlets, JSP, Struts, Spring, AJAX, Web Services, JQuery, Maven, SQL Server and have some design experience as well. I have a SCJP (it doesnt count much though).

Did not want to drag the thread so created a new one.

from the interviews i have attended so far the maximum i have even thought of asking was 6.5 and never been offered more than 5.5L

Perhaps, I am knocking at the wrong places and need to look further.

Perhaps, if you don mind i can exchange some info through PM as discussing specific details here will not help anyone.

I am referring to good companies in Pune, Banglore, NCR, Hyderabad etc. I have known many friends getting around 7-8 LPA for 3 years experience.

Well I would not say what salary you should be getting after 3 years experience. As I mentioned here it depends on many factor. Many times we feel we are underpaid and we do not feel happy. But why not we do our self analysis because we know what market is and we know where we stand in that market.

Lets consider one example ( Note that this example is not applicable to everyone because this is not real example. I have taken this example just to demonstrate how you should calculate your market value, it may differ from case to case basis)

Suppose a fresher in the market gets 3.5 LPA and he expects to grow at the rate of minimum 15% yearly.
After first year his salary should be 402500.
After second year his salary should be 462875.
After third year his salary should be 532306.25.

Well this growth rate should be minimum. Then you add more to it if you have best qualification in industry. You can add more if you are living in costly city. You can add more if you are working on hot technologies. You can add more if you are working in exceptional company. If you ask opinion from people, every one will have different views.
