You've probably noticed a pattern emerging in recent months: antivirus programs that have been bundled with all the major web browsers.The trend has continued into the new year, as antivirus companies push out more and more of their software bundled with their products, and the companies that make them continue to add features to make them more useful and customizable.But this trend is starting to...
Maharashtra is expected to attract over 2 lakh IT jobs in 2017.
In 2017, the state has recorded the highest number of jobs for software engineers, with the employment growth rate of 2.5%.
In 2017-18, the average wage of an employee with a bachelor’s degree in IT was Rs 1.25 lakh.
The job in software engineering has become a key industry in Maharashtra as IT and software giants such as Google, Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) are facing the pressure to hire employees in the state as the cost of living is rising.
This job, which is not considered as an IT job, has attracted the most number of IT engineers in Maharashtra.
In 2017, 1.35 lakh IT engineers were employed in the State.
This is a slight decrease from the year-ago year when the number of software engineers in the IT industry was estimated to be about 1.2 lakh.
“This year’s increase is mainly due to the rise in the number and size of software engineering jobs,” said a senior official.
According to the government, there were nearly 12 lakh IT workers in the country as of April 2019.
The number of vacancies in the profession has been decreasing since the mid-2000s.
In March 2018, there was around 2.6 lakh vacancies in software engineer jobs.
The latest data from the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) shows that the number has decreased by 3.1% from March 2018 to March 2019.
However, the jobs in software engineers are still far from being filled and many companies do not want to hire software engineers.
“The recruitment is not going as fast as they want.
Even the government is trying to fill up these vacancies,” said Rajesh Kumar, a software engineer in New Delhi.
“Companies have been telling us that they are looking for engineers, but they are not hiring them.”
The shortage of software developers is one of the main reasons for the current slowdown in hiring in India.
According, the job creation in the field of software development has been sluggish over the last two years.
This trend will continue if there is no major change in the supply of IT workers.
