empowerment and the reduction of gender inequalities.
The growth in the BPO sector under the supervision of
the IT-ITES sector has been phenomenal. According to

revenue of US$ 100 billion in 2012, where export and
domestic revenue stood at US$ 69.1 billion and US

CURRENT EMPLOYMENT IN IT AND ITES
The Indian IT and ITES industry currently
employs about 2.2 million persons in
comparison to 0.8 million in 2004.
In the context of growth forecasted for the
industry, availability of skilled human
resource supported by appropriate skill
building initiatives will be key to this growth.
In the near term, it is expected that the IT
and ITES industry can achieve an export
target of USD 60- 62 billion by FY 2014,
employing 2.5-3 million professionals directly
in the export segment and contributing
substantially to the socio-economic
development of the country.
PROJECTED INDUSTRY SIZE AND HUMAN
As outlined in the earlier sections,
sustained technology spending globally,
and increasing GDP growth and spending
in India are expected to be primary drivers
Post 2020, growth drivers in addition to
traditional IT and BPO services large
companies (in the Fortune 500) in US and
EU will arise from Small and Medium
Businesses (SMBs), public sector,
healthcare, media, and utilities.
A significant portion of the growth would be driven by markets
in BRIC countries, APAC, Japan, and Rest of the world. A shift
would occur in terms of customer expectations, led by
innovation, end-to- end offerings, risk management, and
compliance. It is expected that the „outsourceable‟ market
would expand from the current US $ 500 billion to about US $
1.5 to 1.6 trillion by 2020.
Sustained GDP growth, increasing public sector spends, and
adoption of IT by industry would drive the domestic
component of the market.
Given these factors, it is expected that the Indian IT and ITES
Industry would record about US $ 220 billion in exports and
US $ 60 billion domestically by 2022, totalling to about US $
260 billion growing at a CAGR of 12.8%.
SUPPLY OF MANPOWER IN IT SECTOR
India‟s public investment in technical education
beginning in the 1960s provided the foundation for
growth of the IT industry. Lack of adequate
opportunities for Indian engineers in the domestic
economy has ensured an abundant and cost
effective workers for Indian export software
In the 1960s the govt. created a series of elite
institutes for higher education in engineering and
management, in collaboration with leading
universities in USA, that was IIT and IIM.
Professional in India attracts large number of
applicants. Most of the IIT, REC and IIM admissions
programs are able to choose one out of 100 or more
applicants. This selectivity and reasonably good
training produces the higher calib engineers that
formed the backbone of the software industry in its
After that subsequent expansion of technical and
management in India helped fuel the numbers
needed for the high growth.
Now India has a large higher education system with
about 253 universities and nearly 13000 colleges
producing 2.5 million graduates every year.
Nearly 3,00,000 engineering degree and other
graduates enter the workforce every year. Since
engineers from any specialty are willing to work
in the software industry, so far supply has kept
pace with the demand.
Many initiative by the HRD ministry helped to
multiply technical institutions and technically
Recently privatization of technical produced in
an ever increasing technical labor supply to
meet demand. By the end of last decade, there
was an estimated 660 engineering colleges in
Much of this manpower supply is due to
privatization of technical education. In 1999,
output from private institutions outstripped the
state output. Even though the number of
engineers has increased, quality has not
deteriorated significantly. In 1969, the IITs
produced around 1350 engineers.
The private cost to start an engineering college
that produces 500 students per year is currently
about 500 million Indian rupees. The private
institutions receive no funding from Indian
One reason for the concentration of software
industries in south is the proximity of the
locations to a very large number of engineering
The HRD ministry played a facilitating role in
ensuring adequate supply and quality of the
technical labour force.
Ministry policies encouraged creation of private
engineering colleges and industry IT training
institution with the proliferation of new private
colleges and IT training institutions.
The HRD ministry developed mechanism to assure
quality control , including the establishment of an All
India Council For Technical Education to regulate
Additionally, the introduction of a MCA degree in
many universities in late 1980s was aimed at
producing graduates with combination of technical
and management skills required for expanding It

The process of teaching new employees the
basic skills they need to perform their jobs.

Edwin B. Flippo :

knowledge and skill of an employee for doing
a particular job.'
SPENDINGS ON TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT:-
Indian organizations on average spent US $331 per
employee on training and development in 2011,

trends in India, by the American Society for Training
& Development (ASTD) and Harvard Business
The figure includes learning and development staff
salaries, travel costs for L&D staff, administrative
costs, non salary development costs, delivery costs
(such as classroom facilities and online learning
technology infrastructure), outsourced activities and
In terms of IT industries,Infosys annually spends
over Rs 800 crore (Rs 8 billion) on training alone.
Wipro spends about 2 per cent of its net sales in
providing training to employees.
Infosys is rated amongst world best in employees
