Though he didn't mention that he will take a pay cut, however, he also didn't clear on the percentage of salary that will be cut and for how long.

Earlier, Pichai received a massive hike in salary few weeks before Google announced layoffs. Recognising Pichai’s "strong performance" as CEO, Google’s parent company Alphabet had raised Pichai's salary.

As per details, Pichai was given two tranches of PSUs with a target value of $63 million each and $84 million in the form of Alphabet's restricted stock units, added the news website.

According to IIFL Hurun India Rich List 2022, Pichai's net worth fell 20 per cent to 5,300 crore, but he still ranks amongst the top richest professional managers.

Earlier, 12,000 employees were laid off and many of them were not prepared. Pichai had claimed that layoffs were not random.
