I am working as a contractor for the past 3 months now and when I accepted this role I settled with the pay which I later realized is much less when compared with others in the industry. I still have 9 more months in my contract period but I am being offered a permanent role in the same company. The amount which I have quoted is near to 40% more than what I am getting now.The HR told that he will give me an offer that matches the industry standard. When getting converted from contractor to permanent role, how much % rise can one expect?

Normally a contractor makes much more than a permanent staff member, because they take a lot of risks and cover their own overheads. So if you're getting a rise, then you were charging too little as a contractor. Despite what people may say, there is no set norm for a contractor, you can charge as much as the market will bear.
My suggestion is you find out what is the industry norm for a full time permanent staff member in a similar position and ask for that. And forget trying to work it out as a percentage of what you made as a contractor.
