The largest commodity exchange MCX offers up to 3 times more wages to a few selected employees, who work from an office in the city.
MCX, which largely dominates the commodity exchange space, employs around 400 people across the country and 300 of them are headquartered here.
“Since last Friday, 50 of our key employees have been working from the office. The office had made all the arrangements, including their daily needs and their stay in the exchange building itself.
“And to reward them financially for the risk they take, management has decided to pay them at least double the salary. In some cases, this can go up to 3 times,” said a senior trade official at PTI, which also claimed that MCX is the only exchange to do so.
