Confusion over Cost of Outsourced Software Services

Interesting topic started by Vivek (I personally know many startups who have gone through the pain of finding the right technology service providers, without too much of success):

“Lot of the startups outsource their software/web development work to external companies. I have been getting my hands dirty on the same. However there have been a great variation in the charges for such services. Companies have gone from Rs 150 per hour to Rs 500 per hour. Some quoted about 45k for a 15 day worth of work with two resources (ofcourse the quality of the resources could be anybody’s guess.) Some even quote prices which they would ask an American MNC (not sure what they are thinking)
I wanted to start a discussion around the same topic and see what sort of costs others on this forum have encountered. From this discussion can we put together a cheat sheet which helps us to know the market before taking up such services.” – Discuss it @the startup forum
