Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) prerequisites and average earnings

What are the requirements to become a CCIE, and what is the going salary of someone who is CCIE certified? Is there any scope in India? Do we need to have an MCA (master of computer application degree) with the CCIE?

There is not a formal degree required to get your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE). The only prerequisite for attaining your CCIE is your CCNA and the CCIE written qualification exam (and about six months to prepare the lab). I am not aware of the specific market in India, but according to TCPmag's 2006-2007 salary survey, the average salary for a CCIE was $116,000.
