Hardly any nations can beat India when it comes to providing cost competitiveness in IT services. India is the world's largest sourcing destination for the information technology (IT) industry, accounting for approximately 67 per cent of the US$ 124-130 billion market. The industry employs about 10 million workforces. More importantly, the industry has led the economic transformation of the country and altered the perception of India in the global economy. The Indian IT sector is expected to grow at a rate of 12-14 per cent for FY2016-17 in constant currency terms. The sector is also expected triple its current annual revenue to reach US$ 350 billion by FY 2025.
Now, creating jobs in the IT sector is not the sole responsibility of multinationals bigwigs companies. The reports says that employees from 12 Indian start-ups, such as Flipkart, Snapdeal, Makemytrip, Naukri, Ola and others, have gone on to form 700 start-ups on their own, thus expanding the Indian start-up ecosystem. India ranks third among global start-up ecosystems with more than 4,200 start-ups.

However, how many of them are true to their word?
