Having a decent Service Sector exp, I can say this is a big mistake they are doing. Fresher entering at 10-15 lakh expecting 20% hike every year,

No Service Sector can sustain,neither the Fresher, nor the Company gains much,how many Freshers will turn Entrepreneur to benefit the Industry ?? So not good for anything.

Why don’t the Service Sector Grooms its older loyal guys to be more Hands on.They can do Wonders ! and retire gracefully at 50 !

I can myself tell that picking back Coding is very easy for generation who has worked on C !

Uttar Pradesh has distinct advantage to exploit this situation as U.P public is used to migratory nature of Jobs.U.P has all the Infrastructure to support migratory Knowledge-Workers.

Tech is not a Cost Center rather an Innovation Center and which pushes all Functions to perform.

Oversupply of Low-Skilled Engineers in Market have got the false notion in few Companies that Tech is just a ‘Cost Center’, but these sort of companies usually don’t Scale-Up.

Uttar Pradesh and specially Lucknow now has good Infrastructure & Network and Bandwidth available to enable Remote Seasonal working for Knowledge Workers. This will be a Win-Win for both IT Industry and the Workers.
