Hyderabad the New Indian Centre of IT Excellence, BITS Pilani Takes Over IIT Delhi: GILD.com Report
National study into IT skills in India identifies top cities, companies and universities

Bangalore, Karnataka, India, Tuesday, March 29, 2011 -- (Business Wire India) -- IT talent has spread across India and is no longer confined to a few small centres, according to the GILD.com IT Talent Report, released today.

GILD.com, the fastest growing network for IT professionals in India, analysed over one lakh people across India and found Bangalore no longer holds the top spot for IT excellence. The report also found graduates from IIT Delhi continue to top the university rankings, although BITS Pilani for the first time had the highest scores in February, and employees of Oracle Corporation topped the February company rankings.

Sheeroy Desai, GILD.com CEO, commented on the findings: "IT skills in India are no longer confined to certain cities, universities and companies. While smaller in number, the IT professionals in Hyderabad have risen above their peers in other, more traditionally recognized cities, and skills are relatively evenly spread across a number of universities and companies."

"India is the fastest growing IT market in the world, so it can be very difficult for great programmers and IT professionals to know how good they actually are. GILD.com gives professionals all over the country the ability to showcase their abilities and develop their skills, while comparing and interacting with other professionals in their field, whether they are up the road or across the world."

The key findings of the GILD.com IT Skills Report include:

Top cities:

1. Hyderabad
2. Bangalore
3. Jaipur
4. Delhi NCR
5. Mangalore

Top universities:

1. Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi
2. Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani
3. Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur
4. Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani -Goa Campus
5. Malaviya National Institute of Technology (MNIT) Jaipur
