Carnage in Indian IT? As Wipro fires 500, here is what other cos are doing

Business-standard reports:

Wipro's move to sack around 500 of its employees as part of its appraisal process is indicative of the churn in India's information technology (IT) sector — which is moving towards increasing automation, use of artificial intelligence and is beset by tightening visa regulations. 

The company is reported to have weeded out "non-performers" after a "rigorous performance appraisal".
