Thus, in the current context, the job of a data scientist has become dearer to a major chunk of individuals who are actively looking to make radical strides in data science career opportunities.

  3. Mumbai – It is the financial capital of the country. Given the scope of IT and data analytics in finances, it is predicted that Mumbai may soon become the largest tech hub of India. Moreover, due to the sheer number of prominent business houses headquartered in this region, Mumbai has the potential to comprise the highest paying jobs for data scientists. Currently, the average salary is around INR 9.1 lakhs p.a.
  4. Hyderabad – Hyderabad is the capital city of the state of Andhra Pradesh and is the emerging hub of tech startups in the country. Big names in the global IT sector industries like Amazon and Google have invested heavily to build the tech infrastructure of this city. Hence, it is quickly emerging as an emerging market of data scientist jobs with an average salary of INR 8.5 lakh p.a.

It has the highest concentration of data scientist talents which has made it a major hub for tech companies in India. The average salary of data scientists at New Delhi is around INR 8.3 lakhs p.a.
