The salary of any profession is very important to be able to attract new people into the profession. Students who study in various colleges opt for courses that they can complete and earn high salary. In the teaching profession, many people do not opt for the profession for the sake of the salary. Almost 75% of those who want to become teachers, do so because they are interested in teaching and making a difference in the life of those whom they are teaching.

In spite of the high ambition of the teachers, salary is also very important for those in this profession to be able to sustain themselves and their family. The salary of the teachers in India varies between state to state and also in the actual qualification of the teacher. If a teacher has done her basic qualification, the salary may be less.

If the person has completed post graduate education in the relevant subject, then their salary is more.Teachers in schools earn much less than teachers in colleges. The teachers in schools are controlled by their school board that decides the salary if the school is a private school. If the school is a government school, then the particular state government decides on the salary for the teachers working in these government run schools.

Actual salary:

The government school teachers who have just joined the government service earn about 15,000 rupees in a state like Tamil Nadu. In a state like Bihar, the same teacher would earn about 8000 to 10000 rupees. If the same teacher had completed the post graduate education, then the teacher would be earning about 25,000 to anything like 50,000.

In a private school, the salary variation can be widely varied depending on the people studying in the school and the location of the school. In small schools in very small towns, the teachers who have just completed their education and are working may earn only about 3,000 rupees. The same teacher if in a city with a big school can earn anywhere between 8,000 rupees to 12,000 rupees.

The wide variation in the salary of a teacher in different private schools depends on the fee that is collected from the students. The salary also depends on the standard maintained in the schools. Though various regulatory bodies are present in each state to control the cropping up of unauthorized schools, many schools are started by people, who later bribe the government officials to recognize the schools.

The salary may be widely varying for teachers in various schools, but they work with the same kind of commitment where ever they work. They give off their best to ensure that their student gets a good education. This is because most of the teachers get more satisfaction in the achievement of their students rather than in the salary that they get.

The governments of all states should try to regulate the salary to be at par with each other as this will make teachers to work in all parts of the country. When the salary in some states are very less, the teachers start moving to greener pastures when they are not able to sustain on the salary that they get.
