To cook for a family of 2 people- Lunch, Breakfast & Dinner- Visit twice a day: Rs 6000-Rs 6500
For locations where supply of cooks for home is less for eg. South Mumbai, you should add a
premium of Rs 1000-Rs 2000 to the above mentioned numbers.
Bonus: In Mumbai and Thane, It is customary to give an annual bonus equivalent to one month’s
salary. This is given during Diwali time. If the home cook has worked for less than 6 months during
the year, some employers give only half of this amount as bonus. It is ultimately dependent on the
relation between the two parties.
The above salary guidelines are broadly relevant whether you are looking to hire through an agency
for cooks or through an online portal like JobNukkad.
