Bangalore, Mar 30 (UNI) Insian Software Major Infosys Technologies is among 17 companies which have agreed to participate in a new pilot programme of the Securities and Exchange Commission of the US to use interactive data in their financial statement filings.

SEC Chairman Christopher Cox in a release issued from Washington said, "We're very excited about advances in financial reporting using Internet technologies, and very pleased at the range of industries represented by our volunteer test group. As pioneers in the use of interactive data and XBRL, their leadership will help shape how these technologies will be employed".

Besides Infosys others who had joined the initiative included 3M Company, Altria Group, Inc., Brazilian Petroleum Corporation, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, The Dow Chemical Company, Gol Intelligent Airlines, Inc., Microsoft Corporation and Mobile Reach International, Inc.
