However, from recent news of honestbee (which pay really well) you have to be prepared to have no pay since most of these companies stay afloat from their fundings not profit.
FWIW, Stan Chart 5.5k, DBS ~4.5k (i can be wrong), Citi ~5k for software starting.

It is similar to the construction industry. If you are just the builder aka contruction worker for software, there is no way you can get such pay. You have to have the architect skills and problem solving skills.

India produce lots of software developer but most of them are construction level skill. So if you are at that skill level, you have lots of competition hence your pay won't be high.

Hypothetically speaking yes, but what skillset warrant a 20% jump? Its either the person is really good at what he does or his skillset is super in demand.

There is another developer who had 4 years experience and is now drawing close to $10k per month. Is this normal? How did these people manage to convince the company to pay them that much?

Dude333 Yes he is right, but it is an outlier (less than top 5 percent). How to convince them? You need to have a good skillsets. But I believe normally this people without programming background can pick up quickly because they have a high IQ (they are normally good at math during uni time).

For the person with 4 years exp, it is possible to command 10k but you should be good at management as well (being a leader) not only programming unless you are working at FANG companies.

It is like insurance, you dont need a degree, but if you are at the top of 5 percent, you can easily draw 200k regardless of your exp.
