Tough times call for tough measures. Software services providers, hurt by the overall slowdown in clients spends are going slow on their hiring plans for the year, according to a report by The Hindu Business Line newspaper.

Campus recruitments have been delayed, lateral hiring has been put on hold, and salary hikes to existing employees may also be lower this year, the report said.

Companies such as HCL Technologies have not inducted fresh engineering graduates, who were given joining letters based on a test conducted on September 30, it said.

"Considering some of the pressures in the IT industry, we do expect that the salary increases could be lower than last year. We will take a decision only in July after we review the market situation," Farid Kazani, Group CFO, Mastek , told the paper.
