This project attempts to understand the objectives:-

 To understand in details how to establish pay rates to different level of employee.  To understand the impact of compensation management on performance level.  A comparative study of the compensation management strategies followed in different banks.

Everything has some pros and cons and so certain limitations of this study that we could observe are as follows: The area of project work is banking sector so, the data or result may be approximate as the conclusion is based on the survey method i.e. primary & secondary source (filling of questionnaire from the employees) may be hypothetical (imaginary) data.
