    There will different categories in teaching, like Professor, Assistant Professor, Teaching Assistant and some more.
    Generally for a Professor of IIT, salary would be in range of 5 lakhs to 12 lakhs and it depends upon their experience, teaching ability and their qualifications.

    Successful people always have two things on their lips- 'Silence' and 'Smile'.
    Smile to solve the problem, and
    Silence to avoid the problem

    There are Three kinds of Teaching faculty in IITs who differ in Experience (Academic Qualifications for all the positions will be the same i.e., PhD with a Bachelor's or masters in appropriate discipline)

    They are

    1. Assistant Professors (PhD + 3 years Experience)
    2. Associate professors (PhD + 6 years Experience)
    3. Professors (PhD + 10 years experience)

    Since the faculty of IIT come under the employees of central government, Their prescribed salaries exist in the form of pay-bands as recommended by the Pay Revision Commission (PRC).

    The Salary band for Assistant Professor is Pay Band-3 (15600 - 39100 + Academic Grade Pay 8000) + Other Allowances like HRA, CA, CCA, Medical Allowance etc.(All the allowances applicable to employees of central government). Everything inclusive, the starting emoluments would be 45000+ which may increase with experience and term of employment.

    The Salary band for Associate Professor is Pay Band-3 (37400-67000 + Academic Grade Pay 6000) + Other Allowances like HRA, CA, CCA, Medical Allowance etc.(All the allowances applicable to employees of central government). Everything inclusive, the starting emoluments would be 60000+ which may increase with experience and term of employment.

    The Salary band for Professor is Pay Band-3 (37400-67000 + Academic Grade Pay 10000) + Other Allowances like HRA, CA, CCA, Medical Allowance etc.(All the allowances applicable to employees of central government). Everything inclusive, the starting emoluments would be 75000+ which may increase with experience and term of employment.


    All the other employees and Research staff like Junior Research Fellows, Senior Research Fellows, Research Associates, Research Assistants, Project Assistants, project Associates and Technical assistants - won't come under the regular or government prescribed scales, as their employment is 'Temperory' or 'time-bound', Hence it is 'co-terminus' with the project and they will be paid salary in the form of "Consolidated emoluments' based on their Qualification, Experience and the Research project they are working in.
