The magic %age figure?

In the HRgyan egroup someone asked this question:
Can I have attrition rate in % in Indian IT industry, which is permissibble and not alarming

My response:
In my view there exists no such magic figure.

Your HR and business leadership have to be comfortable with a certain
figure and that depends on various extraneous and internal factors

If you are doing work for which talent pool is extremely limited then
even a 5% rate might feel very painful and vice versa
