TCSBSE 0.81 % has become the world’s third largest employer of people in the technology sector, with over 3 lakh employees.

In India, it’s one of the biggest creators of jobs in recent years, possibly even the biggest. Besides the Indian army, government departments like the Indian Railways and India Post, and PSU companies like Coal IndiaBSE 1.27 %, there’s perhaps no other company that has more employees. And unlike the government departments, which are mostly reducing their staff strength, TCS numbers are rising each year by between 25,000 and 35,000.
