"In the last two years, especially for advanced machine learning and AI, there has been 250-300 per cent increase in the number of people seeking to enrol. Proportionately, there has been a growing interest among those hiring them," says Sarita Digumarti, Chief Operating Officer, Jigsaw Academy (around since 2011 with primarily online courses).
Start-ups or previous employers hire most such candidates. Depending on their skills, they can earn at least around Rs 6 lakh per annum or more, with courses costing around Rs 40,000 or more.
