Indian CEOs Not Overpaid

This refers to your cover story on Indian CEO salaries (Are Indian CEOs Overpaid?, August 16). The workplace is becoming increasingly dynamic as the war for talent heats up. It is no longer surprising when we get to know about quality talent being poached by companies with deep pockets and the sheer desire to outperform competition. It is no state secret that Indians are in high demand in the global job market due to their abilities. And with many Indian firms going global, the challenges of hiring and retaining talent have increased manifold. One thing that many of us fail to realise is that although the glass cubicle and million-dollar compensation look very appealing on the surface, the package comes with its own set of restrictions and challenges. One needs to remember that it is always the fittest who survives and takes away the prize. Also, rich people all over the world have started recognising the importance of creating equitable societies and are donating portions of their wealth, thus giving back to the society in their own small ways, like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Kris Gopalakrishnan, and many others. It is time to put this debate to rest. Indian CEOs are not overpaid. They are just adequately compensated. - Gaurav Gupta, Pune

Net Neutrality

This refers to your article on Net neutrality (Tough Times Ahead, August 16). and the introduction of Airtel Zero have put the topic of Net neutrality at the centre of a healthy debate in India. In spite of the fact that it looks okay to DoT and TRAI, there is actually a doubt in users' minds who want to access the web without the telecom service provider getting to serve some sites faster than others. While telecom companies do not like the way apps are running on their networks for free, it's great for start-ups as they can come up with an app today and immediately attract a global audience. - Ankur Chopra, On e-mail

Indo-Iran Trade

This refers to your article on India's trade with Iran (A Passage to Iran, August 16). The article highlighted avenues for fruitful cooperation between India and Iran in the aftermath of the latter's nuclear deal with western powers for stalling nuclear proliferation and subsequent lifting of economic sanctions. It is time for India to forge a lasting association with Iran, as in the past, for mutual development. The Centre must make a list of probable treaties and business initiatives to get a focused and comprehensive platform to clinch the deals affirmatively. India must try to claim a special status from Iran in preference to China and Russia to create a level-playing ground. India should install refineries in Iran on a joint-venture basis. It must also help Iran develop Chabahar port on a war footing. This would help stabilise India's presence in Afghanistan as Chabahar is commercially and geopolitically a nodal point. - B. Rajasekaran, Bangalore


This refers to Jay Parikh's column SEBI and Its (Over)reach (July 19). In the said column, it has been mentioned that "In either case, the suspension of trading does affect legitimate trades and due to the lack of clarity on the transaction this seems to be a premature step by the regulator." In this regard, SEBI has clarified that trading in the scrip of Surana Solar was not suspended. Based on certain surveillance inputs, prima facie examinations in the scrip of Surana Solar were carried out, and as a proactive surveillance measure, the payouts pertaining to the scrip for two settlements were withheld. In due course, the payouts were released. - N. Hariharan, CGM, SEBI, Mumbai
