  • Tech majors like Wipro, Tech Mahindra and other multinationals have delayed recruiting freshmen or asked them to wait.
  • Experts, who feared a recession in the US and Europe affecting the IT industry Indiaargues that the trend is not new.
  • The current trend could be due to the workability of pipeline projects.


There is unrest among many of the students whose onboarding process has been delayed by major tech companies.

Tech majors like wipro, Tech Mahindra and other multinational companies have delayed recruiting new recruits or asked them to wait until they are informed. The freshmen awaiting onboarding in Wipro have launched a full-fledged campaign on social media, questioning the integrity and commitment of Wipro Chairman Rishad Premji when he spoke forcefully about ethics associated with moonlight.

“The careers of thousands of students like me are at stake. We passed the Wipro exam in 2021. We turned down offers from other companies. But it’s been a year now and we’re still not on board. Wipro is slowing down or refuse without any clarification,” said the fresher Nithin.

Another fresher Rushikesh Rupnar stated that “it has been 9 months since I received my offer letter. Since then there has been no update on onboarding. Are we a joke to them? There are so many students waiting to join”.

The Budding Information Technology Workers Senate (NITES), an NGO committed to the well-being of IT workers, stated that the trend is not limited to Wipro.

“After Wipro, we received complaints from employees of several IT companies about delays in onboarding. Unfortunately, the CEOs who boast about work ethics and transparency have no humanity.”

“If the workers are organized, all they have to do is put their hands in their pockets and they will have the capitalist class flogged,” NITES claimed.

IT companies must be held accountable for endangering the professional future of the employees and trainees. At first glance, companies are playing a good game about their beliefs and ethics, but in reality it’s just crony capitalism, one of the IT candidates being claimed.

The students who formed a group online with the title “Wipro on board us” said “update on our career, group respected RishadPremjic sir please update on freshman onboarding why this ego system on freshman.”

“I hope you read this answer and that you can help us soon. I wish the people who support us in the struggle of Wipro on board good health and happiness.”

“We request that you provide an update on our career group that has been submitted, respected RishadPremji sir, we don’t know how the moonlight has affected your business but your recruiting process and onboarding of newbies has impacted the lives of over 20k newbies. Isn’t our life valuable?”

NITES had also filed a complaint with Union Ministry of Labor and Employment urging action against the Wipro for delaying the onboarding of more than 2,000 students. Wipro has stated that it will honor all offer letters.

However, experts, allaying fears of a recession in the US and Europe for India’s IT industry, argue that the trend is not new.

They say that as China is hit after the corona period, India could be more resilient. The current trend could be due to the workability of pipeline projects. If pipeline projects are affected for various reasons, the companies will strategize their actions by keeping new hires or withdrawing offers.

“This trend is old and the situation is being projected as if it is the end of the IT industry, which is wrong. The focus is on moving to new technology, which is being focused by all the big tech companies. to prepare for new challenges,” said an expert.
