New Delhi: Hiring by TCS, Infosys and Wipro, which account for a major chunk of job opportunities in the sector, slowed down by a hefty 60 percent in the April-June quarter as the big three hired only around 3,400 persons.



In the April-June 2012, these three companies had hired over 8,700 persons on a net basis.



The country's largest IT company TCS added 1,390 persons in the June quarter this year, against net addition of 4,962 persons in the year ago period.



Infosys hired 575 persons during the quarter against 1,157 net additions in the same period last year.



Wipro added 1,469 people to its IT services division in June quarter compared to over 2,600 people in the year ago period.



In the January-March quarter, the three companies had hired over 16,500 persons.



While TCS and Infosys saw gross additions of 10,000 each during June 2013 quarter, net addition subtracts the number of people leaving the company from the gross additions.
