India Inc witnessed a 4% decline in recruitment in Nov-12 when compared to Oct-12 as most of the key industry sectors and functional areas saw dips in their hiring activity when compared to the previous month.  This dip can be attributed to the festive season spanning across the month as well as the uncertain economic outlook.
