Wipro offers up to Rs 10 crore annual package to new CEO

This would include periodic increments, variable pay (based on performance criteria), leave travel allowance, house rent allowance, company provided car and driver, furniture and equipment and provident fund among others.

Kurien's is one of the highest salary packages in the IT industry. According to TCS' Annual Report 2009-10, company CEO and Managing Director S Ramadorai received Rs 3.61 crore in salary, benefits and perks and commission for the period between April 1, 2009 and October 5, 2009.

Infosys CEO and MD S Gopalakrishnan received Rs 1.01 crore during the fiscal 2009-10, says the company's annual report. Kurien will get 12 months salary as severance benefits in case his services are terminated. This benefit will be calculated on the basis on the last drawn salary before the termination.

"If the company terminates the agreement, the company will communicate the same in writing to the CEO and the CEO will be eligible for severance benefits as follows: 12 months last drawn salary," the filing said. Salary for this purpose includes basic pay, benefits and allowances and variable pay, it added.

In January this year, Wipro appointed Kurien to lead Wipro's IT business after sacking joint CEOs -- Girish Paranjpe and Suresh Vaswani and dismantling the joint CEO system.

While naming Kurien as the new CEO, Wipro Chairman Azim Premji said the company was going back to the single CEO structure as it wanted a leaner and more efficient firm.
