Master Blaster Batsman Sachin Tendulkar earns Rs 1,163 a minute, PM only 57p!!

You often pay Rs 2.15 per minute when you talk on the cellphone. But have you ever calculated how much you earn per minute? If you haven’t, then you can check how you fare in relation to some of the most prominent names in the country, courtesy Saamna, the mouthpiece of the Shiv Sena.

In an interesting item in Friday’s edition, Saamna also showed how both the Prime Minister and the President of India are paupers compared to some of the richest figures in the country, though the President is a little better off than the Prime Minister. According to the news item, topping the list of those who earn in thousands per minute is cricket king Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin in one minute earns Rs 1,163, Amitabh Bachchan earns three times less — at Rs 361 per minute. Shah Rukh Khan earns Rs 247 per minute while indus trialist Mukesh Ambani earns Rs 413 per minute.

The Indian Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, earns almost 2,000 times less than Sachin, at 57 paise a minute, while the President, Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, earns almost 1,000 times less, at Re 1.14 per minute.Saamna has arrived at these figures this way: Sachin has tied up with an agency for an ad campaign which pays him Rs 180 crores per annum. Per game he gets Rs 2,35,000 for a Test series and Rs 2,50,000 if it’s a one-day match. In a year he gets Rs 61.15 crores, which comes to Rs 1,163 per minute.

"Big B" Amitabh Bachchan earned Rs 19 crores last year through Cadbury, Pepsi and his superhit movies, which comes to Rs 361 per minute.In the case of Shah Rukh Khan, it has been calculated on the basis of his bank balance, which last year stood at Rs 13 crores, which makes his earnings Rs 247 per minute.Mukesh Ambani got a salary of Rs 21.72 crores (this does not include any of his other perks, etc) last year, which puts him at Rs 413 per minute.

Saamna goes on to say that the Prime Minister, who looks after the economy and affairs of the country, is very poor compared to these other people. In a year he gets a salary of Rs 3,60,000, or 57 paise a minute. The President is in a little better position than the PM, as he earns Rs 6 lakhs a year, or Re 1.14 per minute.

The paper tells its readers: "After reading this you can know how important it is to calculate how much you earn per minute. Your day of 24 hours has 1,440 minutes. When you calculate how little you earn, you will be stressed out and will have to go to a doctor, and you will help to increase his income!"
