HCL 2012 Campus Recruits should be given the Date of Joining immediately


This campaign is to garner public support for the HCL 2012 Campus Recruits and to force HCL Technologies Ltd to honour its words on employment offer to around 6500 of them. HCL had recruited for employment around 8000 graduates from across the country through its campus recruitment drive last year. The selected candidates were given Letter of Intent (LoI) which defined the terms and conditions of employment and compensation. HCL did give Date of Joining (DoJ) to a few recruits, but is reluctant to give a firm commitment to the rest of the recruits. Most of these recruits had lost their chances to attend recruitment drives of other firms as they were selected to HCL in the first instance and were not permitted to attend further recruitment drives by their respective colleges. They are the cream students from well established colleges across the country.

There are around 1.5 million B.Tech graduate seats available a year in India, of which about one third is Computer Science and Information Technology Engineering. And the average employment generated is much lower than the number of graduates coming out. This clearly points to the unemployment prevalent among the technology graduates in India. At a time when government of India provides huge incentives and tax soaps to IT firms it becomes imperative from their part to generate employment within the country.

In an industry which is hailed for its standards and for providing opportunities to attain the dreams of youth of our country, it is feared that non-commitment of HCL to its offer may become a precedent. We want the industry to follow the ethical standards it has made. We do not want mutual distrust and breach of commitments to be part of this industry. We want this industry to be a leading example for all.

We hereby request the Union Minister for Labour to respond to this issue and take necessary steps to ensure that all the HCL 2012 Campus Recruits are given the Date of Joining immediately with all the commitments as per the Letter of Intent.

We request all the like minded people, various social organizations, trade unions and political parties to support and sign this petition.
