MUMBAI: Young Indians, do the math: You spend between Rs 4 lakh and Rs 8-12 lakh for a degree/diploma from a tier-3 or tier-4 MBA or engineering institute, you get a salary of around Rs 40,000 per month on graduation. Or, you spend under Rs 1 lakh for a specialised course at a vocational training institute, and get a salary of Rs 60,000 a month.
