CHANDIGARH, INDIA: Indian software major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) said on Thursday that it would hire 25,000 people this year, a move that is likely to give a fillip to the country's IT recruitment scene which is seeing a slowdown since the collapse of Lehman Brothers last September.


"We have an employee strength of 1.45 lakh people and we want to add 25,000 more people this year," a PTI report quoted TCS vice president (Head Global Government Industry Group) Tanmoy Chakrabarty as saying in Chandigarh.

He also said TCS' revenue from government projects is small and the company wanted to raise it to at least 10 per cent of its total revenue in the next three years.

TCS also reportedly said it was hoping to implement the Centre's ambitious Rs 1,000-crore 'Passport Seva Project' at six pilot locations in October this year and will take this number to 77 by June 2010.

As of now TCS has an employee strength of 1.45 lakh people and it wants to add 25,000 more people this year, Chakrabarty said.
