''Infosys has spent over than Rs 400 crore on educating its employees through campus connect, where they are taught in institutions, which teach students and the increment has been to the extent of 11-13 per cent,'' said Ms Gujjar.
Infosys has started a new initiative, wherein people from the US and Europe will be recruited for working in India and since Americans are reluctant to work in India, they will be recruited for one year each in India and China.
