Little surprising that topping the list of biggest IT employers in India is the country’s numero uno IT services company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). The Tata group company reported a total employee strength of 141,642 during its first quarter earnings of fiscal 2009-10. The headcount at TCS went down for the first time in the first quarter ended June 30, as the company put a near-freeze on hiring. It reported a net addition decline (in headcount) of 2,119.

Foreign nationals formed 8.3 per cent of the total employee base and 30 per cent were women. The attrition rate in Q1 was 11.5 per cent. At the end of FY2008-09, TCS had 143,761 employees on its rolls, after an addition of 13,418 employees during the fourth quarter (Q4) ending March 2009.
