Can I demand an 'Associate' role in Cognizant having 26 months of experience and have 5 days NP left in LTI?

Aqib , generally for programmer analyst they consider 2/3 years. If someone is promoted internally they are liable to get 4.5-6 LPA for PA role. If hired externally for PA, the CTC depends on previous CTC.
In terms of budget I'm not sure.

like

PA budget is 7-10 LPA.
A 10-22 LPA
SA 15-30 LPA
M 20-45 LPA

So you find out you are being underpaid at a job you just started at in comparison to other attorneys at the firm, Do you:

A. Ask for a raise.

B. Accept your current salary and address your compensation package at your performance review in a year

C. Lateral to another firm using the information you have learned.

You may provide an explanation.

Protip: If you're trying to get a referral/coffee chat at an obscure company or one that doesn't have a lot of Fishbowl user participation, you can "search" for the company name you're targeting, filter by "people," and now you see everyone on the app who works for that company. You can scroll down to the title most relevant to the position you're seeking, and cold message them for a referral. Just be extra polite, because you're reaching out to them, not the other way around. E.g., Starbucks:
