An Indian multinational information technology company, Infosys employees will receive 80% of their variable pay in the June quarter. Some of the top performers have received payouts of 95% as reported by TOI. 

However, in April, Infosys said that the average variable payout for Q4FY23 was reduced to 60 percent at an organizational level.
