Bangalore, Mar 14: India's IT big giant, Infosys Technologies said it would employ all the candidates who have been given offer letters, although the company is going slow on hiring due to economic crisis.
"All the call letters that have been sent out will be honoured... we are sticking to our numbers... we will honour the commitments we have made," Infosys co-chairman Nandan Nilekani told reporters on the sidelines of a CII event.
The company has made an offer to 18,000 students of the 2009-10 batch from different campuses. For the current fiscal, Infosys has been maintaining that it would hire 27,000 people.
When asked about the US Government's decision to curb H1-B visa workers, Nilekani said, "Certainly we are all for free trade, its good for the world, its a way of spurring growth. While there is this murmur (H1-B visa issue), fundamentally I am hopeful that people realise that we need free trade."
