New-age sectors like e-commerce are likely to see relatively higher pay hikes.

The same is driven by very high insatiable demand of high quality talent with high end skills," Himanshu Aggarwal, CEO and Co-founder Aspiring Minds, an employability assessment company said.

According to global management consultants like HayGroup and Aon Hewitt, Indian companies are likely to offer average pay hikes of 10-18% in 2015, which could be the second best in Asia after Vietnam.  Such high pay hikes in Asian countries are being attributed to the talent war in the continent, both for experienced hands and new graduates, experts said.
