IT sector job growth may rebound by FY25's 2nd half
The projections indicate an expected 8-10% surge in recruitment throughout this calendar year, signaling a potential reversal in the sector's employment trend.

In FY24, India’s top IT giants, TCS, Wipro, & Infosys collectively reported a drop in headcounts by 63,000 employees. This reflects the impact of a weak global demand environment and clients’ constrained tech spending.

Wipro reported a net reduction of 6,180 employees, total headcount at the end of March 2024 stood at 234,054. The company’s headcount was reduced by 24,516 in FY24. On the other end, Wipro has delayed the campus hiring and it will not start anytime soon.

In Fiscal Year 24, Infosys headcount dropped by 25,994 as of the Quarter ended Mar 31, 2023, the headcount was 343,234.

The FY24 TCS headcount dropped by 13,249 employees and the total workforce stood at 6,01,546 as of March 31, 2024.
