Not everyone will get the posting of their choice. So to move to the place of your preference, there is swapping. However, there are certain rules to be followed when you opt for a swap.

There are 2 CGPA brackets. Above 4.30 and below 4.30. You can only swap with a person belonging to your CGPA bracket. However, you can go to HR and if he agrees, you can swap with someone belonging to the other CGPA bracket also.

The following rules are to be followed when you go for a swap.

You can swap only by using the swap portal.

You cannot swap by publishing swap information on bulletin board or sending mass mails to everyone belonging to your batch. Your swap can be cancelled by the HR if you are found to have found a partner to swap in this way.

After postings are announced, you will get 100 mails everyday from unknown people asking for swap in your poor 10 MB mailbox. So, it is necessary for them to keep such rules for swapping.

You cannot swap with a person who has already left the company midway in training.

You can only swap with a person in your stream. (.NET people cant swap with Java people).

Your Business Unit will also change and it would be of the person that you swap with.

For example, you have got posting as IVS(Independent Validation Solutions), Mysore and you swap with someone having CME (Communication, Media, Entertainment), Bangalore, your Business Unit will also change from IVS to CME.

  11. Umesh Pathak  

    where r u????
    plz ans ma queries

  12. Chintan Patel  


    I dont know about that. And your location does not depend on stream. Its only for our batch that people got posting at Chandigarh directly. Otherwise no batch has ever got posting at Chandigarh so requirements for them seem to be less.


    I dont think you will have any probs. But cant say for sure. And i dont think it was by mistake that you wrote that there was no gap. Anyways, i dont think that would be a problem. But the exact information on this can be given by only HR and i dont think you should cotact him. So just join Infosys as of now.

    I have already said many times that:
    There is NO logic for the allocation of DOJs, for streams or for postings.

  19. Chintan Patel  


    Its enough to learn C. You will do well as you are worried.

  20. Anupam  

    hi chintan..
    can i take my lappy nd pendrive to infy campus??
    since it was metioned in the joining mail that the lappy is strictly prohibited.
    what level of prog. skills shld be there bfore jng?

  21. Unknown  

    Hi Chintan,
    Can u tell me that in the compre labtest exam what type of C programming is there? I mean to say that is there file programming is also?
    How long programs do they give to do?
    Is it possible to complete within the stipulated time?

  22. Chintan Patel  


    I have already mentioned it many times that everything is allowed. That email is old. Dont know why they dont update it.
    You can do without any programming skills if you are ready to learn sincerely.


    File handling is not there... Yes, you will be able to complete it... And also they cut very less marks in Hands On and Project. I lost 1 hr's work in my generic hands on but still managed 38 with the C program not running.

  23. Unknown  

    Hi Chintan,
    Thanks a lot.
    Can u pls metion what type of projects & generic hans on program they give? Can u pls name a few pls????

  24. Chintan Patel  

    Ohhh... you will know when you get there... Nothing to worry this much about it...

    There are projects about Insurance Information System, Airline-Railway Reservation System, Electricity Bill etc...

    Now pls dont ask me any more questions regarding those.

  25. anisha  

    hiiiiii,thanx a lot 4 dis info...

  26. Adarsh  

    chintan all the best for you future and dont worry, a person like you always find good job and you will go up in life, you just need to wait, everything will be resolved with time. so many people know you and so many of them follow your blog and have been helped by it, You dont know how many people already know you since most dont write comments.

    i wanted to ask you something for my friend, suppose a persons cgpa is less than 4 after stream compre but becomes greater than 4 after post, will the trainee be allowed to stay.

    all the best once again

  27. Chintan Patel  

    Thank you...

    yaa, CGPA needs to be 4 at the end of training that is, after the POST marks.

    So its ok for him...

  28. Unknown  

    Hi Chintan,
    They will give the incentive for the 4 months of training at a time before posting?

  29. Chintan Patel  


    Ya, they will give it alongwith the first salary that you get after training...

  30. Unknown  

    Hey can u tell me if u cant swap in training ..can u swap in production ?? if so how?

  31. Chintan Patel  

    You cannot swap in production for atleast 1 or 2 years as far as i know. So if after infosys training at mysore you get posted to some place you dont like, the only option remaining will be to change the company.
