ITEC, an association of IT /ITeS employees, has been at the forefront to fight against fraudulent practices in the IT Industry.
As you might have already noticed from media and other sources, cheating is becoming prevalent in the name of IT/ITeS companies for the past few years in Bangalore. Many fresh and vulnerable employees who come to Bangalore in the hope of building a career have been victims of this deception. Electrosys and Ireckonsoft posing as IT companies had been charge sheeted for tricking their employees by offering fake jobs for cash. In other related incidents names of reputed companies were used by IT/ITES recruiting agencies to cheat the job seekers.
