Has anyone joined company with lesser CTC than current CTC after 6 months of career break.
Due to personal reasons quit job and after few months of break didn't get offers that even matching my current CTC. Joined a company with 20% less. Will that be an impact in future ?

no. no one asks about your current salary. if they ask you don't have to reveal.

It's actually against the law in many US States for a company to use your previous total compensation as an anchor for your new total compensation. You can look up State Salary History bans for a list of states. It obviously doesn't always stop recruiters from asking, but if you know it's against the law, it's a lot easier to push back.
