Is it advisable to switch from Amazon to Uber for SDE 2 role?

I have been working in Amazon India from last 3 years (got 1 promotion in between from SDE 1 to 2). My salary is more than double since the time I have joined Amazon and reached at 36.5 LPA TC (current comp, base 25.5L, 11L stocks). I have got offer from Uber India for 57LPA TC (cash 44L, 13L stock). Is it advisable to switch for Money from Amazon? I am pretty much comfortable here and liking the culture of Amazon which is not liked by many. :) It will take 2.5-3 years for me in Amazon to gain knowledge to grow to next level (SDE3) and same will be the case in Uber. However, for newly promoted SDE3 in Amazon, comp start from 60+LPA which Uber is already offering.
Need help from experienced folks who have faced similar kind of situation in past. Thanks a lot in advance. What are the parameters which you consider before switching job?
Edit:
There was no motivation for me to apply for Uber, just applied to see if I can crack their interview process.

Total YOE- 5 years.

    Is there even a question? You are getting salary bump of more than 50%, why don't you want to join?

      Why not? He is young, he can spend extra hours if needed. In terms of wlb, I don't think Uber is any different from Amazon.

      With the salary bump he can save more. When compound interest kicks in, he can probably retire 5-10 years earlier than what he would have done with current salary
