Apart from this, seven companies which includes Castrol India, HDFC, IDFC, Ranbaxy experienced a decline in their CEO pay for 2009-10 over the previous year. Companies like Nestle India, Ambuja Cements, YES Bank and Reliance Industries kept their CEO compensation the same or made a trifle increase.

Inorder to set a personal example for moderation in managerial compensation levels, Mukesh Amabani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries took a reduced pay between 2007-08 and 2008-09 and the 66 percent pay cut continued even in 2009-10.
