Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, India's top IT services firm by sales, is seeing stability on the ground and the company's demand pipe
line is good, Chief Executive S Ramadorai said on Monday.

After posting a scorching pace of growth for years, India's export-driven outsourcing sector has been battling a slowdown as top global customers were hit by the financial crisis and economic downturn.

Last week TCS said that it would hire 25,000 people this year, a move that is likely to give a fillip to the country's IT recruitment.

"We have an employee strength of 1.45 lakh people and we want to add 25,000 more people this year," TCS vice-president (head global government industry group) Tanmoy Chakrabarty said.

Announcing its first quarter results TCS has said that it remained on track for graduate hiring programme in 2009-10. Analysts said promising hiring plans of TCS comes after a big, long dull in the segment and it would boost IT recruitment scene.
