Engineers and other professionals are getting much higher salaries, though.  One KD is about 220 INR that makes a good amount but not good enough to survive easily.

Always keep in mind these agencies come to India if they need cheaper labor; on the other hand, European people are getting much higher than that. People always want to see the Kuwait currency rate in Indian rupees before traveling for work here.
