Demand for professionals in ITeS has grown remarkably, whereas, IT-Software and IT-Hardware showed downward movement of 14% and 15% respectively. 

V Suresh, Chief Sales Officer, said, “Post an impressive 22% Y-O-Y growth in June’16, though the index for July  shows muted growth of just 3%, good news is the slow and steady growth in the NON-IT sectors viz., Auto, Hospitality, Education and Healthcare to name a few. Looks like this trend will continue and we can expect the index to move north in the coming months.”
