Comparing TCPL Packaging Limited's CEO Compensation With the industry

According to our data, TCPL Packaging Limited has a market capitalization of ₹5.3b, and paid its CEO total annual compensation worth ₹24m over the year to March 2021. We note that's an increase of 34% above last year. We think total compensation is more important but our data shows that the CEO salary is lower, at ₹5.4m.

On an industry level, it's fascinating to see that all of total compensation represents salary and non-salary benefits do not factor into the equation at all. In TCPL Packaging's case, non-salary compensation represents a greater slice of total remuneration, in comparison to the broader industry. If non-salary compensation dominates total pay, it's an indicator that the executive's salary is tied to company performance.
