Emergence of non-linear models: Hari T.

In the Indian IT/ITeS industry, shortage of industry ready talent is a major challenge. Talent in India is overpriced and this will cause a significant problem for the industry and the annual increase of 15 percent in talent cost is not sustainable in the long-run. This increasing talent costs will make India less competitive.
