Re: 2021 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

I can assure that it is common now in most Mid and high level IT companies in Bangalore for slogging yourself for the past 18 years. You get 2 lakhs in hand anyways and thats the frustration.

How come they do not claim income of more than 40 lakhs but can buy a 50 lakh rupee car? Unless they are showing this as a depreciating expense in their company books?
