    Salary & Stipend both are related to money.Candidates get stipend get in training & salary after permanent job.Stipend is temporary in nature & it is paid only in training but salary is permanent in nature & paid once get job.Salary paid when you give service to the company but you get stipend when you give nothing to the company.Stipend is that when a company recruite some person so during the time it devote to the employee for training they give some money called stipend.when a person actually participating in the growth of company they provide them salary

    Hi,

    * All organisations (Public & Private ) offers Training for the respective Job position with Stipend only

    * Training period and Stipend amount varies for each firm

    Note : Training is given only for Freshers not for Experienced candidates

    * Reason for Stipend is for the

    1) cost of the Training that the company incurs in teaching you the technology that the company is utilising everyday

    2) This is new to Freshers

    * Though your the employee . Since the company offers you training , it charges some amount in your salary and pays you remaining amount as stipend

    Ex : Generally assume if we go for any coaching we pay the money as fees , this is similar to that .

    * After successful training , the mentioned salary will be granted to you .

    * Stipend : Money paid to you by the company as a boosting factor for your training learning part of work as an encouragement .

    (( STIPEND = SALARY - TRAINING COST )) Note : None will work without money(Stipend) . Some amount is deducted for Training expenses incurred by the company for you (Salary-Training Cost ).

    * Salary : CTC (Cost To Company ) that the company pays for the work done by you for them .






    Thanks !!!!!!!

    Stipend is for the learning process, the company pays you while you learn.
    The resources are wasted on training you, and they are also providing you money then they lose resources and money also.
    To equate that usually if you are trained for 3 months with stipends then you have to work for then for 6 months or one year,
    those principles differ from company to company.
    You need to clarify this from your HR.

    Re: Why trainees are not eligible for salary but for stipend? Difference between salary and stipend?

    Trainees are entitled to stipend and not salary because the trainees work for some given hours of time that too under supervision and also they are under learning process yet not capable to decide or work on one own's set of mind which denies them salary. It is for sure you are going to be finally appointed but that doesn't mean you are. The one who has crossed this training period is entitled to salary,which is either said weekly or monthly unlike Stipend which is distributed either at one go or at intervals.
    So salary and stipend depends on the designations as well as amount and time. Employees entitled to salary may or may not suffer fluctuation in salary with their hours of time spend on the work. Salary usually is fixed while stipend may or may not vary. As a trainee you owe only the stipend. So wait for the time when you are out of your training period and be among the salaried employees.

    both are the methods of payment..... SALARY is given to a permanent employee for the work he does but trainees are rewarded with stipends for this is the term they learn to work in new environment and according to their devotion towards their work they may become permanent within a short period of time ......it is also their that from permanent employees crucial work is demanded in return but in case of trainees they just test their work load skills... loyality etc.... ...so have patience dear!!!!

    haI,




    _Trainees are given Stipend Because Company is Investing on the Freshers_

    Stipend is paid to trainees, and the salary is paid to employees of the company. The salary will always be higher than stipend if it is related to similar post. The company provides training to the freshers or the employee who is in need of it, trainees apart from training they also working for company. So company pays them a amount called stipend. And the employees are well efficent, and they are working for the growth and progress of the company so they are paid salary. The company invest alot of money for training. So they deduct small amount as training cost from their eligible amount and the balance amount is termed as stipend. i.e Stipend is equal to salary minus training charges. Thanx

    Re: Why trainees are not eligible for salary but for stipend? Difference between salary and stipend?

    Hello Friend,

    stipend and salary both are differnt things.

    stipend is paid during the learning period i.e traning period in order to cover the expenses of trinees.

    Taxes are not with held from stipend amount.

    salary is paid to an employee on a interval of a certain period i.e it may be paid weekly or monthly.

    An employee who gets salary is entitled to get other benifits like medical allowences,house rent allowences etc.

    salary is anegotiable amount between an employee and employer.

    salary paid employee has to submit his income tax return for aparticular financial year.

    Thanks.

    A stipend is a form of salary but since you are not adding any benefit to the company, you are not bringing revenue to the company, so instead fo salary u are entitled to the stipend. It is lower than the actually salary as it is equivalent to the basic salary non inclusive of all the allowances.

    Thanks

    Re: Why trainees are not eligible for salary but for stipend? Difference between salary and stipend?

    Dear friend,
    Trainees are not eligible for due to their incomplete training. In all sectors untill you have not completed your training you are just able to get only the stipend not the salary. When you have completed your training you will be able to get the mentioned salary as well as the benifts mentioned by the company on your offer letter/appointment letter. The difference between the salary and stipend is untill anyone is not completed his training is not able to get salary which is defined by the company so untill the training is complete a person has get only the stipend.


    I hope it helps you.

    Thanks.

    Dear friend,
    The salary and stipend are different objects because when a person is under training then he is able to get only the stipend, and when he has got completed his training he proves that he is now eligible to work with all of his best for a company in this situation the company gives him a proper salary as well as the other benifits also. Trainees are not able to get the salary just because of their imperfect knowledge of their object, this is the main reason whether they are not eligible to claim for a salary.


    Thanks.

    Re: Why trainees are not eligible for salary but for stipend? Difference between salary and stipend?

    HI,

    SALARY and STIPEND are totally different.
    When company trains someone,in return company is getting nothing.
    It is after some days that you give your input to the company.
    That's why trainee are paid less.
    The one who has crossed this training period is entitled to salary,which is either said weekly or monthly unlike Stipend which is distributed either at one go or at intervals.

    HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL!!!!!
    GOOD LUCK!!

    As you are in the training period, so you are not the permanent employee of the company. The salary will only be provided to you after you are a permanent employee(after completing your training period). The company cannot make sure that, you are eligible for your field until you clear all the tasks in the training period.After you complete your training successfully then you will promoted to your work and you will become the permamnent employee of the company and paid with salary(not stipend). So, now you will only be provided with stipend and after you are eligible for work with proper trainig you will be paid with salary.No concern about stipend and salary, main is the experience that you will earn.And the salary is more in comparison to stipend as stipend is for training period and salary is for working period. So focus on training and after its successful completion you will be paid with salary(more then stipend).

    Re: Why trainees are not eligible for salary but for stipend? Difference between salary and stipend?

    Hello

    Being a fresher i know how it feels to get such low amount inspite of working hard.

    A company trains a fresher and invests on us for few months in hope to get something in return in the future.

    When you will become a part of the company as a permanent employee you will get even more than your salary what you will get after training.

    This is how it works in software jobs

    Thanks

    until we give something in return we get paid less which is called as stipend.

    After we successfully complete our training we get our salary and get into projects and give the company what it need and utilize the knowledge we get from the training.

    Re: Why trainees are not eligible for salary but for stipend? Difference between salary and stipend?

    Hi friend,

    the main difference between salary and the stipend is that

    stipend is the amount that the company pays you during your training period. In which you are made to learn the things that the company want you to.

    Whereas salary is the think that the company give you after your training period, which says that you are now eligible and can work for the company without others help and came complete the project on your own.

    During stipend company would train you the way they want you during which you are like a student who is learning the things from the company

    eventhough you know everything you are treated as the trainee not as employee during starting because every company makes use of their own software and own techniques to develop their company and the employees.

    So in order to make you reach that standard you are treated as an trainee and given a stipend amount as you cant work for the company for free.

    Thanking you

    Dear Friend,


    The slary and stipend are two different things,when a person is under training then he is not able to get salry bcz he is not serving for the company,just to encourage the person in training time they will provide stipend inorder to spent for their expenses.Once the person succesfully completed his training and got permenent employee to compnay means he will start working,now he is contributing his services to company so he has right to get salary from company and all other benefits providing by company to their employees.

    Hi

    salary and stiepends are both a type of payments.

    salary:

    is for a person who actually participating in a company growth for that they provide salary.

    salary is for a perment employee.

    stipend:

    is an amount allotted on a reguler basis usually for a specific pupose.

    your monthly salary is a stipend but the terms usually releted to funds made avial for projects.thats are made for a special funding like reserch.
    Whith stipend you will get training for company.

    Hi Aspirant,
    Both Salary & Stipend are related to money. Salary gives only experienced candidate while Stipend gives only Fresher students.
    Salary is a permanent type while Stipend is not a regular type payment structure.
    During the Stipend, company will provide a trainee to candidate, after giving your training periods,
    company will provide a Salary .
    thanking you!
    Good Luck.

    Hi friend,
    Yes there is a difference between salary and stipend. For freshers companies offer stipend because they spend some amount on them to train freshers.
    Salary : It is wages payed for work. It is payed monthly. It is payed permanently.

    Stipend : It is payed for only freshers. It is for temporary. After training they will pay salary.

    All the best!!

    Hello,

    There is a difference between salary and stipend.

    stipend are given to the trainees who join the company as fresher.

    Freshers are new to the company, so company take the initiative to train them so that they can learn to work.

    They train all the freshers and bear all the expenses of the training.

    Freshers dont work for the company ,they learn how to work so they are given stipend and not salary.

    Thank you

    Re: Why trainees are not eligible for salary but for stipend? Difference between salary and stipend?

    Hello

    Salary and stipend basically are the same things with two different names..What i mean is that salary is given when you are a permanent employee in the company and stipend when you are in the training period and thus a temporary employee..
    Many companies recruit bulk employees for training and then later on depending on their performance choose a select number of employees to become the permanent employees in their company..For more clarity on this its better you contact your HR and ask him whether only a few or all of the trainees will have a permanent job once the training period is over..So you will be eligible for salary only after you complete your training period and are selected as a permanent employee of the company..
    Good luck

    Re: Why trainees are not eligible for salary but for stipend? Difference between salary and stipend?

    Hello Friend,
    As per my knowledge they pay salary during training but they cut a part of it and repays all once you complete successful training.however as you say stipend is part of salary and its fixed in amount and you wont get any more than that unless you complete your training but rest whatever is cut from your salary will be paid eventually.
    the companies do this for their safety.they spend huge amount for individual student training and all facilities an employee get in company and after your completion of training if you leave the company ,then they have to bear a huge loss and the amount cut from your salary will compensate that.
    Thank You.
