There is now compulsary 6 months training for all. There is no change in the syllabus. Just that you now have 2 streams instead of 1. But ya, the good thing is that you have cleared training if you clear the first stream. That means, you wont be asked to leave if you dont score well in the second stream. And that also means that if you dont have a CGPA of 4 at the end of first stream, you wont get a chance to improve your scores in the second stream and will be asked to leave.

As is obvious, no choice for the second stream. You will have to study what they offer you.

The second stream that you undergo is equivalent to PR201 certificate. You will learn about that after you join. Infosys employees have to appear for a fixed number of certifications every year and this is one of them.

Earlier, you could not bring alcohol in the campus, but now, they have made the rule more strict by stating that noone can even enter the campus when he/she is drunk. As you may be already knowing, you will be asked to leave the hostel if you dont follow this rule. Some people who arrived drunk on 31st Dec have been already made to leave hostel.

    hey chintan..

    jst wntd to knw, wt if i will have to leave d company fr highr studies in nxt few mnths??
    u say they support highr studies bt i guess MBA only.. mine highr studies field will nt b supportd i think..
    so.. hw mch amount will i hv to pay..?
    m nt clear the way they hv mntiond in d service agreemnt..
    if u say i ll forward d xact language wt they hv mntiond..


    do one has to pay infy smthng if d prson has to leave the company due to inability to clear the tests?

  2. Chintan Patel  


    You dont have to pay anything if they make you leave. As in if you dont pass training. They support many MTech, MS and PhD programmes also whose list you will get after you join. But ya, they sponsor MBA programs the most.

    Usually they dont come chasing you to ask for bond amount if you go for higher studies. But if they come to know that you have joined some rival company then they will ask for bond amount.

    I am sure that it is mentioned clearly in the service agreement but you can send the part which you didnt understand.

    No yaar, why do we have to pay them if they want us to leave?

  3. Sai Manohar  

    good work chintan....
    ur blog has been a great help..BTW howz ur new job ? Hope ur havin fun...

  4. Unknown  

    Hi Chintan...

    If i am not wrong then rival companies means SWITCH(Satyam, Wipro, IBM, TCS, Cognizant, HCL)??

    And are you sure if anybuddy leave infosys during bond period and join any non-rival companies then he dont have to pay bond amount??

  5. Chintan Patel  


    My new job is great... Enjoying here..


    They never say it but it holds true. One person from my generic class who was also selected in Reliance had his joining on sept 26. So he joined with us on july 21 and then knowingly failed in easy subjects and went to the HR and resigned. He didnt have to pay any bond amount...

    So know this: "You can resign during training".

    hi chintan
    happy to know that ur doing well with ur new job.i got answers for the previous question.after posting that qustn i went through all the posts of this blog.
    they were really informative!!
    u cleared most of my doubts..
    big thanx for that
    i dint get wat PLES is??
    do u hav unix,iqs,pt slides with u.i downloaded the other generic stream ones. also there are few other ones like object oriented conceepts,client server concepts in the ones i downloaded!!also do u have ur stream(java) slides with u???

  7. Chintan Patel  

    PLES is just a dept of Infosys doing engg. related projects.

    I have all the slides but they are more than 500 MB in size... So i have not uploaded them.

    You can download them from Guru's thread...

  8. Unknown  

    Hi Chintan

    I have recently read a news in infosys main community that they have increased the cut off cgpa to 4.3 after compre & pass mark for every sub has become it a valid news?

  9. Chintan Patel  


    I have not heard of any such news so will deny it for now... Will post about it if i come to know...

  10. nee_hrudayamlo  

    hi chintan
    wat is Guru's thread!
    plz give the site address for that!

  11. Chintan Patel  


    It is a thread on the Orkut community "Infosys 2008".

  12. deep  

    hi chintan!! could u tell me whether data structure, files and graphic's in the syllabus.Do we need to learn sql and pl-sql as well for dbms??

  13. Chintan Patel  


    These topics are not in the syllabus...

    Only creating and querying tables is enough for RDBMS in generic...

    SQL/PL-SQL is just a part of Oracle which is a module in Java stream.

  14. dynamicbalaji  

    hi my dear sir,
    i'm balaji from coimbatore,studying B.E.ECE final year.i was selected in infosy campus interview.i have two doubts,pls clarify me as soon as possible.
    1.what things i want to learn before going to infosys?
    2.whether i want to pay some amount to infosys before going for training?

  15. Chintan Patel  


    Just learning C language will be enough.

    You dont need to pay anything..

  16. Unknown  

    Hi this is rohan.I've read few dayz before in times of india that big names like tcs,infy,wipro are demanding some money immediately after joining.Is it true??

  17. Unknown  

    hey.... thnx a lot 4 answerin r queries....... i jst wtd 2 knw 1 thng....... im a pit student..... s der any way u cud fynd out if der ll b any difference in d trainin being given 2 pit students..... nd if vr expected 2 perofrm b8r or stuff....... 2 b frank i hadnt done d trainin seriously....... if u cud fynd dis out t wud b a huge favor...... thnx nd tc

  18. Chintan Patel  


    No, man.. Dont believe the press. After joining Infosys, I came to know how even the smallest changes are hyped up by the media to earn publicity. Infosys doesnt demand money from you in any way. Except if you break the bond, there is no rule which makes you pay Infosys any money.


    No, there is no difference AT ALL. Each criteria is the same for everyone. Doesnt matter if you are a small unknown college or from IIT. Doesnt matter if you are from mechanical or have done MTech in IT.

  19. Deepak TS  

    SO what does this mean will it mean, that both the IT and non IT branches will have the same amount of training time

  20. Chintan Patel  


    I dont know about that. Like i said, such differences were not there till now.

  21. Unknown  

    hi chintan..
    could u give a detail idea about the syllabus?what would you suggest as a to prepare before joining to ensure a high score in the tests?I'm from CSE dept

  22. Chintan Patel  


    I have wrote a post for this. I think you can find it in July 2008 or August 2008 tag.

    Learn C language well before joining. Other than that, you will have to work hard there to ensure a high score in tests. Before joining, learning C language is enough

  23. Unknown  

    Hello every one. I got joining date on Aug 10th 2009. Please please please tell me in detail, wats the new training, subjects, material that i could find. Please dont mind becoz this job is a need to me, so i need to be through training. so please reply me friends give me an idea as wat i can do before i enter the Mysore campus. Thank you

  24. Chintan Patel  


    Even without "please, please please" your queries will be answered.

    Anyways, you will find the answer if you read some other posts of this blog.

  25. Unknown  

    Is it sufficient if i study, and do assignments of 9 modules available in Campus connect of company's official site?

  26. Chintan Patel  


    You will have to work hard there... Great preparation before joining wont be enough.. It is just to get acquainted with training.

  27. Diwesh Saxena

  28. saga  


    how much of C learning is necessary ? i am from mech branch . wat all concepts must be stressed upon ?
    also does learning unix now help ?

  29. Chintan Patel  


    in C, you can study if-else, do-while, for loops, pointers etc.

    Ya, unix module is also there. So it helps but not to the extent that C language does.

  30. Unknown

  31. Chintan Patel  


    Yes, you can. But if there are bomb blasts or something going on in the country then visitors are banned. They can get a visitor pass which is valid for 3 hrs.

    hey chintan
    one last silly question....are we allowed to carry any extra electronic or electrical equipment?like i want to take a 'juicer' along !is it allowed?

  37. Its my life  

    Hi are doing a great help to so many freshers.. help me out too plz.. a big problem dude.. i got offer letter with joining date on june 8, iam in 4th year,second semester.. but i still have one backlog of 4th year,first semester(i could not write exam coz of my grandmother's death).. the exam is on june 18th.. iam unable to decide what to do.. pleeeeease help me out... krishna..

  38. Unknown  

    when i got selected, i dint had any backlogs.. i got selected before 4th year,first semester exams.. help me out.

  39. Chintan Patel  


    I am an iPhone Developer at an SME in Ahmdbad.


    You wont need to carry a juicer. There are juice vendors in every food court.

    Having said that, I dont think it would be a prob. You can take anything you want. Just that it needs to be declared with the security.


    You just need to apply for an extension. There is no big problem. Just tell them that your exams would not have been over by that time and so you need an extension of DOJ. But ya, the new DOJ will be about March 2010 as per tradition.


    What is your problem, man??? Be clear.

    Are you the same person above? If yes, i request you to use only one name for posting comments.

  40. Unknown  

    hey good to hear that ur an iphone developer!!!i have a 2g phone(unlocked version) which is an year old!it was working fine until last month!!now its unable to catch any signal(without any reasons.i havent handled it harsh ,or dropped it!!).sumtimes it catches around 2bars n wen i make a call it goes off!!ive taken it to the technovision guy but no use:-(.i hope u can gimme a suggestion...

  41. Chintan Patel  


    I cant help you with that. Given Apple's nature, its best to not mess with their devices.

    Anyways, i cant diagnose the problem in your case. I only know how to make applications for iPhone and dont know tricks for jailbreaking or unlocking iPhone.

  42. Unknown  

    hey dats k...tnx for answering

    @ chintan

    dude , i heard training for 2009 joinees is for 8 months it seems . is it true ?

  44. Chintan Patel  


    I think it is for 6-7 months. Have not heard about it being for 8 months. But that can happen if they dont get work.

  45. saga  

    @ chintan

    wat abt the medical tests dude ? any med certificate needed at the time of joining ?

  46. Chintan Patel  


    haha.... i am laughing because medical tests are nothing but a big joke.

  47. Deep Surti  

    Hi Chintan,
    You are doing a great job...
    I just wanted to ask whether the campus has SBI ATM Centers or not??

    My joining is june 8th. I read you post about the shared rooms and single rooms. So by what time and date should i reach there to get the single bed rooms and not the shared ones??

  48. Chintan Patel  


    Please read comments also... It is known for long that boys get single rooms for sure.

  49. Unknown  

    Hi chintan :)

    I am joining on june22 .

    my day is june 22nd .i want to know abt a boy if i ask single room means whether they ll provide...and other thing is iam mech eng student..i dont knw even C,C++..whether i ll cope up tat in training

  52. Unknown  


    I ve got doj as 13th july,mysore.. I want to write CAT this time n i ve heard tat the training @ infy is very hectic. M really worried tat i wont be able to prepare well for CAT cos of the hectic schedule.. m very confused abt wat to do.. Pl help!.

    the training is now supposed to be for 6-7 months i heard.. is it all going to be in mysore itself?

  53. Chintan Patel  


    Your question is already answered in the comments above...

    It depends on how much effort you put in.


    You can squeeze 2 hrs for CAT prep if you plan well. One of my friends got 94%ile this year. We too had training going on from July-Dec.

    But ya, CAT can come next year, every year but not infosys. IIMs and Infosys have the same rate of selecting candidates from total applicants i.e. less than 1%. So really speaking, its better if you stop worrying and even preparing for CAT this year and try next year. You will get a feel of training in about a month or so. You can then decide whether to prepare for CAT or not.

    Yes, training period is extended. Only those people who are given training for SAP are shifted to Hyd after first stream. For them too, the generic and first stream are at Mysore itself.

  54. Dinesh Choithani  

    Hey Chintan....I am a 2009 recruit from mumbai but my date of joining is 21st March 2010....Wanted to ask whether by any chance it can be preponed........

  55. Unknown  

    Hi Chintan,

    Thanks a lot for providing with so much uself information. I would want to ask you that has the entire training process and programs changed from 2008 to 2009? if yes how and do they intend to carry out the same programs for 2010.
    Also are the salaries different during training periods?

  56. Unknown  

    And also could you please tell me the salary package offered for 2008 recruits and 2009 recuits.

    Thanks a lot for all your help

  57. Chintan Patel  


    No, you cant prepone it. You can only postpone it.


    Yes, there are several changes in training from batches joining from 23rd March 2009.

    Training program undergoes review every year and so minor to major changes are bound to happen every year.

    I think salary for 2009 passouts is 10% higher than that of 2008 batch. For us it was 2.7 lakhs but it is 3.0 lakhs per annum for 2009 passouts.

  58. Dinesh Choithani  

    Thanks alot Chintan for this great work you r doing..........
    Well actually the first company to come in my college was infosys....I got placed so i didnt sit for any company thn after....I got offer letter in March this yr saying my DOJ as March next yr....Till thn all companies had completed their campus recruitments in our college....Now am left with no option till March 2010...So hard is my fate.....

  59. Chintan Patel  


    Getting a late DOJ is not soo much unfortunate as you take it to be. You sound as if you had to leave infosys with a CGPA of 3.99 . You can prepare for certifications like SCJP, CCNA etc.

    FYI, my college mates selected in Wipro have got DOJ 29 Dec 2009. That is 1.5 years after graduating.

  60. MY Ideas,Experiences  

    iam a 2009 passout,i got call leter in infy on march 22nd 2010.will it be forwarded to july??? or not.plzz reply me.if anybody is having same situation like me plzz reply me to mail,

  61. Chintan Patel  

    @Add Agency...

    I cant understand what you mean by forwarded?

    Anyways, you cant change your DOJ except extending it under valid reasons only.

  62. Monica  

    hey chintan , i wud like to ask wat all need 2 b done before joining, m nt getting anythng in my useraccount which they gave to us, i wud rather like to ask sm1 abt it , in a one on one communication, hw cn i ???

  63. Chintan Patel  


    Everything that needs to be done is mentioned in your offer letter. I dont know if there is any helpline for this.

  64. Unknown  

    hi chintan....
    this is my first post....m an mca student..I want to ask whether scjp certification will add any advantage in the training? do u recommend me to write scjp before training?
    with regards,

  65. Chintan Patel  


    It will help you but not as far as training is concerned. Anyways, you can go for it as Java is now a part of Generic training and certifications will help you have a good resume.

  66. Unknown  

    Thank u soo much for replying me chintan...

  67. Unknown  

    May i know the modules currently present in new training strategy

  68. Chintan Patel

  70. Chintan Patel  


    You will have to apply for extension. You have got a backlog and that is a genuine reason.

    They surely dont allow pending exams but i think they are not allowing pending results also. Please call their helpline to confirm.

  71. Unknown  

    hi chintan,
    cud u tell me how many workdays are there in a week? And during the training process at mysore wat will b our schedule, is it from 10am to 6pm? My parents will go wid me so whr cud they stay? does Infy has any provision like guest house or smthng for them?
    Thanx a lot!

  72. Chintan Patel  


    5 workdays.

    The official time is from 9 AM to 6:15 PM. Module tests start at 8:30 AM.

    Your parents will have to stay at some other hotel outside infosys. They have guest houses but you wont be able to book a room in them before joining.

    @AnuG, Nidhi...

    The thread is on Infosys 2008 community forum on orkut.

    You cant take a laptop there, its banned now.

    Its too large to send as only 2 streams make it above 300 MB.

    Nidhi, you may consider deleting your email address to prevent spam bots from getting your email address.

  77. Sudarshan  

    hai chintan . my doj was postponed from 29 sept to 20 oct . can i know whether only our batch doj was postponed or for all batches it is postponed ?

  78. Chintan Patel  


    You can know by interacting with other members onf Infosys 2009 forum on orkut. I dont have any information about how many batches have their DOJs postponed.

  79. Unknown  

    i was selected in infosys in on campus placement...where the cut off for 10,12,btech was 60%,,,i have 63 per in 12 ,68 in btech....but i have 59 per in i am really tensed that i might be asked to leave when i show my original marksheets....i dnt want to fake any mark sheet or anything....can u tell me if there is anything i can do about it...i know infy is very prestigious company and i dnt want to loose my opportunity due to 1 % in 10th.....pls help as i am very disturbed abt it.....i am not able to concentrate on preparing myself for training in mysore....please help me solve this situation...i would be very gratefull of you.......

  80. Chintan Patel  


    How were you eligible for interview if the criteria announced was 60% in 10th?

    I dont know what help can i provide in this situation. Check if there was any rule by which if you have more marks in BTech, you get a 5% tolerance in any one of the remaining marks because it was there for us. If that rule is not there, i cant help you with this.

  81. Unknown  

    i was allowed to sit by college...where do i check if there is this rule for relaxation...?

  82. Chintan Patel  


    College does not decide who is eligible and who is not.

    There are infosys employees in each campus interview conducted who verify whether you meet the required criteria or not.

    Did you write the correct 10th %age or you mentioned it to be above 60%?

  83. Unknown  

    i mentioned it to be 60

  84. Unknown  

    they did not check anybodies marksheet....

  85. Unknown  

    how do i convince them...can u pls help me with this....will they even consider me or they wont even listen to me...

  86. Chintan Patel  


    So you made a deliberate mistake.

    They do check everyone's marksheet and recalculate the aggregates by themselves for each candidate they select for interview.

    You cant "convince" them if they have a problem with your 10th marks.

    You can just try joining when your DOJ comes and see if they allow you to continue or not.

  87. Unknown  

    does infy pursue the trainees for compensation in case they leave during the training period ( in case i dcide 2 go for MBA ..)?

  88. Chintan Patel  


    Already answered above. Please look around before posting a redundant query.

  89. Unknown  

    mr chintan i have a srious problem ders a pnding police case on me whose verdict will be dcided in 1 month INFY came for campus recruitments a month ago and i got selected.I want to know do they conduct background checks for police cases and if they do when do they conduct these checks and if im cleared of the accusations i.e. i dont ve a criminal record would i be able to join INFY or not plz reply xtremely urgent

  90. Unknown from 2009 btech passout batch and got selected in infy provided joinin date as march 22nd 2010.. whats the aggregate percentage required for infy now?? i got 67.73% in i eligible?? wats the eligibility criteria for infy?

  91. Chintan Patel  


    Sorry for missing out on your comment. Just for others' sake here is the answer:

    They wont do background checks for police cases against you but if you can be suspended indefinitely or fired from the company if they find out that there are criminal cases against you. If you are proved innocent, they will take you back.

    They are sensitive to criminal backgrounds but if you are proved innocent they will not have a problem.


    I have said it many times before and will say it again that criteria is not the same for all universities. Infosys eligibility criteria applicable to you will be announced to you when infosys visits your campus.

  92. rajanrajan  

    sir...would they conduct any pretest when we get in to training...and if we score well...will they put us directly in the project.............was this followed in your batch...or is it followed in the current batch(2010)

  93. Unknown  

    hi chintan,
    i am about to join on 8 Feb. While filling the e-joining, under education heading, we are asked to enter the date of beginning and end of the course.
    but in the example image they have provided, the marks are entered separately for each year.

    my doubt is:
    1) are we supposed to enter the dates of beginning and end of semester(6 months) or b-tech (4yrs).

    2) when i enter marks they are being displayed as consecutive rows whereas in example image they are displayed column wise for semester and row wise for each sem. Am I Doing Any Mistake?

    i tried to call their toll free no. 180030004747 but error tone is being received please help...

  94. Chintan Patel  


    There is not such test conducted at Infosys training centre which will put you directly into production. All freshers have to undergo the training before being put into production.


    1. I only faintly remember about this. If they are asking the dates for each semester, mention the dates for each semester start/end. Actually, this falls under the category of stupid joining formalities and dont worry much about it.

    2. The example image might be outdated so dont worry about that. Just enter everything as mentioned. I dont know why they dont care to update processes which interface with freshers directly as they are the most confused lot. Even our Joining Details mail mentioned that laptops are not allowed but in the induction program, they said that they are allowed.

    So dont worry about these formalities. Even Infosys does it just for formalities sake and it wont land you into trouble anywhere if not done right.

  95. Unknown  

    hi.. i ve been called by Infy for an Internship doin my 8th sem project i will complete 4 months of training before my graduation(thats wat they said). i want to know whether it would be easier to complete a project there.( otherwise i ll have to redo my final sem again).

  96. Chintan Patel  


    I am not sure what information you want but one thing is sure that projects wont be easy but you will still be able to complete it. Dont waste a chance to spend 4 months at Infosys. The technical training you will get there is a great foundation for a career in IT industry.

  97. rajanrajan  

    hello sir.....some people say that the training cutoff has increased from 4 to 4.5 in the current it true sir....what is the reason for this...?...It seems recession recovery will be very slow and long....Many people say that this is the reason for increasing the cutoff...what is ur take on this ?....

  98. Ashok  

    Hello sir.. I got placed in Infy this week.. i have one doubt in training..
    You have earlier said that if we pass in first test and fail in second test we wont be asked to leave.. But if we fail in first test we will be asked to leave immediately.. Does that mean we wont be allowed to write retest if we fail in first test..? If it is allowed, how many retests are allowed..?

  99. Chintan Patel  


    This is my take on that:


    I dont understand you clearly. And i dont think i have said that anywhere. Please find it and show it to me if you do. You dont have to appear for re-test if you pass it in the first attempt. Only 1 retest per subject is allowed.

  100. Raji  

    My sister has got placed in infy.She has some pblm in her left eye(almost no vision).Does she have to undergo medical examination when she joins infy? wat they check during their medical check-up?

  101. Chintan Patel  


    In the form they make you fill during campus interview before the written test, there is a field where we have to mention if we have any disability. If it is mentioned there about your disability, you dont have to worry. But if your sister did not mention it, they will feel that you tried to hide that fact from them and it may go against you.

    Infosys does not do any medical checkups but they ask for certificate from some hospitals about your health. And i am sure that there will be a field for disability in every medical certificate. I had one person in my batch who always used a wheelchair.

    So basically, what i am trying to explain is that if you are honest, it wont be a problem because i dont think your sister's disability is something that will hinder her performance but if they feel that you tried to fool them by not informing them, then it may go against you.

  102. rajanrajan  

    sir ......has the cutoff increased from 4 to 4.5?.

  103. Chintan Patel  


    Didnt you understand my answer above? And as you know, dont ask the same question again.

    Hey Chintan,
    I've just plodded through the e-joining formalities and my DOJ is due in next month. After the formalities i've come across this snappy little quote - "Your Personal Band is 3 and Personal Sub Band is 3T". While I do understand what a Personal Band stands for, I am clueless abt what 'Sub Band - 3T' entails. Any chance you could elaborate?

  105. Chintan Patel  


    T is for trainee. Thats all there is to know about it.

  106. hello  

    hey,i recently got selected in infy... but in d form i have wrongly filled my 10 n 12th percentage.... i m frm icse board... so i filled %tage taking best 5 subjects in 10th and best 4 subjects in 12th....
    taking best 5 sub-89.6%(which i filled in 10th) n taking all subjects it is 88.5%
    also in 12th taking best 4 subjects-93.25%( which i filled) n taking all subjects it is 91.8%..... so i m meeting d eligibility criteria...
    so will it be a problem in joining???
    n what do i mention now in th ejoining form??
    so kindly rply...

  107. Chintan Patel  


    I think it is clearly mentioned by them in the written test when they make you to fill up the form that you have to write the %age based on the grand total.

    Though if you are already meeting the criteria, it does not create much problem but still they will look at it with some suspicion.

    I suggest you fill up the e-joining form with your overall %age. You can explain it later to them and they will also feel that you did not try to hide it.

    Otherwise, they will surely call you afterwards to talk about this because they again calculate your %age from the marksheet copies you submit in the first week of joining and again match it with what you mentioned in the campus interview. I have seen the excel sheet for that myself.

  108. hello  

    Hey...okk thnx....i would fill the total pecentage in the ejoining form..........
    can i make changes to the form i filled at mysore campus?? do dey consider people wen d mistake was unintentional or they just throw u out?? if i show dem my originals will dey b convinced for i have not bluffed on my eligibility criteria..... should i inform the training & placement officer of my college???
    kindly rply..... thnx

  109. Chintan Patel  


    You cannot make changes to the form you filled earlier.

    If you have not done that to just meet their %age criteria, you should be fine.

    No need to inform anybody and explain this to infosys only if they raise this issue, otherwise keep quiet. When they do raise, just say that you filled it for the main 5 subjects in the form but realized it and filled it for all subjects in the e-joining form.

    hi chintan

    i'll be joining as a trainee from 29th of march of this year..i hv received soft copy of my offer i m quite worried as i hv not received hard copy,accomodation letter or any such stuff till now and its just one n a half month left...

  111. Chintan Patel  


    Hard copy may even come after you have left for Infosys. Dont worry about that. They will explain it to you how to proceed with that.

    Accommodation mail/Joining details mail will arrive before 1 month of joining so no need to worry.

  112. Praveen  

    i had my infy interview on dec 3rd 2009...
    wen will i get my call letter?
    they said they ll tell the date of joining along with call letter..
    r we supposed to sign the bond after the training?

  113. Chintan Patel  


    All your questions are already answered. Please read all other posts and their comments before posting a question.

  114. Praveen  

    wat abt the dress code during trainig...
    strictly formals??

  115. Chintan Patel  


    Same answer as above.

  116. Praveen  

    hii chintan
    u hav mentioned only about the dress code f girls..
    wat abt boys.. r neckies allowed

  117. Chintan Patel  


    This proves that you have not read all the posts and their comments. If i say its there it means it is there.

    Be smart and dont strengthen my belief that Infosys is hiring the wrong people these days.

    Read entire blog of mine first and you will hardly find any of your doubt remain unsolved after that.

  118. Unknown  

    hey chintan.. i got a message when i loggen in to do my ejoining. it says "your personal band is 3 and personal sub band is 3 T " what does it mean?

  119. Chintan Patel  


    Ahhh.... Forget that. Its just the rank of your designation in the organization (Systems Engineer). It increases as you get promoted. It used to be A,B,C,D,E,F when i was there.

  120. Unknown  

    Hi chintan you are doing a great job,i have a question related to the reply given by you in the early blog of hello,my question is that i have also done my 10th from i.c.s.e board and have also done the same mistake of giving the best 5 subjects marks in the infosys form,allthough after calculating the percentage of all the 6 subjects i am meeting the infosys criteria easily by a lot of margin and i have also read your reply to fill the e-joining form with all the 6 subjects with 12th its fine as i have done it with c.b.s.e hence with 12th there is no problem,I only want to know will they ask me to leave for this unintentional mistake after checking the marksheet or will just ask me to explain it and do nothing else.I have one more question after selection how many days later will they send the offer letter,will it be send by e-mail or by post please do reply.

  121. Chintan Patel  


    I have also already told that if you have not done it just for meeting the criteria, it will not be a problem. If it is such a common mistake that ICSE students make, they most probably already know about it.

    Just know that you will not be treated unfairly in any matter.

    Offer letter can take anywhere from 0-12 months so dont countdown days for it. It will come by post to your college.

  122. Unknown  

    hi chintan..cud u plz tell me wt r dese 1st n 2nd streams in da infy wt r dey consist of.

  123. Unknown  

    Hai chintan
    My doj was Feb,2010. Could not join due to one back log. Asked for extension. Got replied that marks sheet be produced post declaration of the result by the last week of march 2010 as they don’t have batches joining after March,2010. Cleared my Back log and sent all my marks sheets and provisional degree . But i did not get next doj. Whether they will give me new date in the month of March or later or will turn down my request. As they don’t have batches joining after March, how many days in advance they give DOJ. Month of March begins today

  124. Chintan Patel  


    I have listed most of the streams on some other post/comments. Please do a site search.


    If they told you to produce marksheets by the last week of March and you have already sent your marksheets, you dont have anything to worry about. Why would they turn down your request if you have met their condition? They usually give DOJ before 1 month of joining but in your case, it can be less if they try to accommodate you in one of March 2010 batches. Whatever it is, they wont do anything unfair to you and they will keep you updated about it.

  125. Unknown  

    please say me the syllabus for infosys bpo...

    Hi chintan,
    I have got my joining date on june 21st and my marriage is on june 18th. Wil infy extend my joining date for atleast ten days or so or is that i have to join after six months??

  129. Chintan Patel  


    As i have said often, you cant extend your DOJ to a time convenient to you. All extension candidates are called together in one batch in March till now and so it will be mostly the same for you too.

    Please post your queries as a comment to a blog post and not as in a chat room.
    All your queries are already answered on this blog so please check other posts. Do not post a question without reading all other posts as i will not answer repeated questions.

    @Mehul, Praveen, Ruban...

    Just give them a call or send an email and confirm. Please dont ask me about the phone number or email address. I hope you will find that out from the eJoining page.

  139. Unknown  

    Hi thanx 4 ur reply..I hav another query..Can u tell me wat is ejoining?I dint get any mail regarding it from infy...?

  140. ALAFIYA  

    Thank u chintan for ur immediate response:-)

  141. Chintan Patel  


    You have to fill in your details on infosys website before joining. That is called ejoining. You will get a mail from them if and when it is needed.


    Hey Chintan, thanks a lot for maintaining such an informative blog.

    I wanted to ask you two things:

    1. As you have already told that laptops are not allowed in campus during training, so are there any provisions for trainees to surf net and do any other work on computer 24x7 or they will have to go to a particular lab for any such reasons?

    2.Will you be posting the training program 2010 as soon as you come to know about it?

  143. Unknown  

    hey ,i hve heard tht u need to open an ICICI bank account in thr at infosys!!if someone already has an account of ICICI,will it work or do we need to open new account thr again!!??

  144. Chintan Patel  


    GECs used to be open 24 hours but now they are also closed down at 10 PM so you cant be on computer 24x7. After 5 PM and before 9 AM, you can surf net on your classroom PC. There is a reliance web world also if you want to check your mails/orkut/facebook etc.

    I havent come to know of any major changes in the 2010 program so have not posted anything about it. Will post if i come to know of any significant changes.


    If you already have an ICICI account, you can give the account number to them and your salary will be deposited in your ICICI bank account. Its fine if you do not open a new account.

    hi !

    First of all thanks a lott for all the abovehelp.
    I just need a suggestion from you
    I got Placed in Infosys and Patni Computer System , so i m confused about which company to join in …
    coz i heard that the chances of onsite projects and growth are more in Patni COmputer Sytem then Infosys
    but ofcourse the Infy’s Training is the best one

    i’ll be highly obliged


  148. Chintan Patel  


    I dont know about onsite opportunities at Patni but i dont think it is any higher than infosys and so Infosys is ofcourse far better than Patni.

  149. ANTRIKSH..........!  

    I have the offer letter of both TCS and INFOSYS with me.
    Please suggest me which comoany should I join as it is really confusing.
    Please support your answer with some solid points.

  150. Chintan Patel  


    I dont want to add anything to that never ending debate. I went through Infosys training and I would say it is worth joining for its training alone.

  151. tushar  

    hi chintan,
    can u give me a rough idea regarding how the CGPA's r calculated dere???

  152. Ali Hashmi  

    hi chintan
    i have been a silent observer of this space since i got placed in feb 2010.i never got a chance to ask anything bcz all my queries were already answered by u in one way or the other.thanks a lot for such dedicated and wonderful effort.

    i just want to ask how much of java would u think would be sufficient enough before i join.
    do we need to learn advance concepts like servlets,jsp,ejb,etc.
    also is there any need to go through graphic design using java(applets,buttons,etc).
    thanks a lot in advance


  153. Chintan Patel  


    Calculation of CGPA will be explained in detail in the first week of joining. I can give you an idea but since i underwent training before 2 years, it may have changed slightly and i may be wrong on that so its better that you get to know about that after joining.


    Since Java is now also a part of generic training, Core Java would surely help you in generic. I am assuming here that Core Java is what is included in generic syllabus. So if Core Java is included in generic, Java stream will contain JSP which was already there when i underwent training and maybe something more which i have no idea of. So i think studying Core Java, Advanced Java and JSP should be enough preparation before joining. You dont need to study everything before joining.

    hii chintan .i have my doj on nov i want to write CAT this year .if my exam falls on a weekday wil they allow me to go and write the exam and similarly for gd/pi stage will i be allowed to go.please reply and i had to leave before or just at the end of training for MBA will i be asked to pay service agreement bond.

    plzz do reply thanks in advance
    cat09: 97%...

  155. Unknown  

    My percentage at the time of campus recruitment was 66(till 6th sem), but i entered it as 70,just because i wanted a job at infosys..I got through the placements.Now, at the end of 8 semesters, my overall percentage is 66.65 but the eligibility criteria is 68. Will i be allowed to attend the training program.

  156. Chintan Patel  


    You will have to take a leave for 1 day which you can get easily. Already mentioned many times about the bond if you leave before training and wont repeat it. Search for it on this blog.


    No, you will not be allowed.

  157. tushar  

    hi chintan,
    4m da point of career growth which stream according to u is best in infy(lyk java,mainframe,testing etc)

  158. Chintan Patel  


    As long as you get to code, every stream is good as that is what a software engineer does. You wont get to code in streams like IVS(testing), IMS etc and so except those streams, every stream is good as long as you get to code after posting and it only depends on your personal comfort with the platform.

  159. Unknown  

    hi Chintan,
    I hav a doubt regarding the dresscode for girls.Are we allowed to wear long-skirts at infy campus.?

  160. Chintan Patel  


    Yes. Dont worry too much about the dress code. Its not as strict as you might think.

  161. thedictatoro6 DOJ is on sept 13. i want to extend my joining date.can you pls tell me wat all documents to be mailed for postponing my DOJ??

  162. thedictatoro6  

    I want to write gre in i want to join only after that. on wat ground should i ask for an extension and how??pls do reply

  163. Chintan Patel  


    If you want to write GRE, you can do it even during training though you wont be able to prepare for it as well as you could without joining.

    That said, you should be aware that your new DOJ will only be in March when all extension candidates are called together for training. If you are fine with that, you can apply for extension.

    What excuse you can give for applying for extension is totally upto you because they will surely verify it so be careful.

  164. Unknown  

    hii sir, my infosys joining date was 19th july. i hav one pending backlog in 6th sem and one back in 7th sem exam. i hav applied for extention on the basis of medical and i hav sent medical documents to infy without my marksheets . i got reply from infy that send your marks sheets also with ur next expected joining date. right now i have medical proof but i dont have all marksheets . i will clear those 2 backlogs exams til december 20. wat should i do now ?? should i reply to infy now without all marksheets or should i wait for dec and reply after gettng all my marksheets??

  165. Chintan Patel  


    You can tell them that your marksheets are pending but i think they will eventually see it through. You should have given the right reason for extending your DOJ. Backlog is considered a valid reason for extending DOJ. Whatever you do, keep in mind that they are 100 times smarter than all the trainees and they handle thousands of such cases every year. They have a very well refined system in place.

    You cannot wait till december to do that. The best you can do is to give them your other marksheets and say that you are awaiting other marksheets from college/university or you can say that you have backlog and so the results are pending for those 2 sems.

  166. Unknown  

    My query relates to something that happens after training. After the training has ended, and assuming one has cleared it, how are the work centers/states allotted to employees? Does your preference count of its entirely up to them??

  167. Chintan Patel  


    I have written a detailed post about how infosys allocates posting locations to trainees. Please read that post and you will find all your answers.

  168. Unknown  

    hi chintan,i have given infosys HR in 11 sept.they said result will be declared within 2-3 week...but till now there is no reply from much time they will take to verify?

  169. Chintan Patel  


    It can take more time due to the current overload but dont worry, the result will surely come.

  170. Unknown  

    Hi Chintan,
    Infosys will be coming to my college for recruitment in a couple of months, they have set the cut-off as 68% but i have upto now(6th sem) only 66%,can i declare my score as 68% and go thru the selection process...and if i mange to go thru wat chances do i have to get selected.

  171. Chintan Patel  


    Your aggregate marks will be calculated before you are sent to interview. I remember form my interview that there were about 5-6 people from infosys staff whose only job was to calculate the aggregate of everyone's results by checking every mark sheet. So i dont think you will be able to do it. Anyways, you can give it a try and if you that system is no longer in practice and you can clear interview and your final aggregate before joining is over 68%, you wont face any problem.

  172. shirish  

    @Chintan- I want like to ask you

    1)How much time does infi give between the completion of training and posting, is it possible to visit home during that time?

    2)How easy is it to find accomodation in the city where the trainee is posted

  173. Chintan Patel  


    No. There would be a maximum of 1 day gap. That also if you are lucky. In our batch, people who got posted to Bangalore did not have any gap and people who got Pune left a day after so they got 1 day gap.

    It is easy to find accommodation because new people come in all the time. There are also internal forums in all Infosys DCs where people advertise vacancies in their rooms so it is easy to find accommodation in the city you get posted to. Infosys gives 7 days of accommodation in their guest house and i have not heard of anyone who was not able to find a room in those 7 days.

    Hi....I got selected for Infosys through campus placements. I'm an average guy. Can I cope up in the training program as I heard training is damn tough etc etc.

  176. Chintan Patel  


    Thank you.


    Dont worry, training is not very tough but just that you will be taught a lot of things in a short period of time. You should not procrastinate in training and learn sincerely. Everything will be fine if you do that.

  177. Soumya Ranjan Udgata  

    Hi sir, I m Soumya from Bhubaneswar, Orissa. I am about to join Infosys on 134th feb 2011.
    My question is
    :- How can I find the detail syllabus of training that to be given to me ?
    :- What are the basic formalities that i have to complete before joining? I don't have my passport with me now but already applied before 2 months. Its seems that i am not going to get it before feb. Is there any problem ?

  178. Chintan Patel  


    Dont worry about the entire syllabus now. It will be explained to you before training begins.

    Read my post "Important Checklist for people joining soon.".

    Only the proof of having applied for passport is enough if you dont have passport.

  179. Unknown  

    Hi chintan,
    I have a percentage of 68.1% by the end of 4-1.Unfortunately i got a backlog during 4-1 and i got my joining date as june 15th.I wont be getting my supplementary result by june 15th.I know this question has been answered but my doubt is :

    I belong to JNTU university and i have an option of leaving two subjects and i will be still eligible for a degree .Will infy allow us to do that or it is mandatory to clear all the subjects.

    Also please tell me will they give me an extension on the grounds of a backlog???

  180. Chintan Patel  


    I think you should contact them directly for your case as i am not sure what their response will be.

    Yes, they give extension for backlogs but the new DOJ will be within 6 months of the original DOJ after which the offer will be cancelled.

  181. Your Helper  

    I am appearing for infosys recruitment test tomorrow. I took Sanskrit as 5th subject in class 10 (option was between hindi and sanskrit). I also gave hindi exam because it is required for govt. jobs. I got 92% marks in class X. Should I include hindi marks in class X % because I took Sanskrit in place of hindi and gave hindi exam to be eligible for govt. Job.

  182. Chintan Patel  

    @Your Helper...

    Its upto you. I dont think it will make a difference as your %age is already very high. You can ask them about it when you fill up the form.

  183. sagar mohanty  

    hello chintan sir
    I recently got placed in infosys plz tell me what subjects i need to be thorough before joining.Is java,dotnet,oracle pl/sql all needed
    which one is the most important one that i must know and it will be beneficial for me during my training plz reply

  184. Chintan Patel  


    You dont need to be "thorough" in anything. They will teach you everything but if you want, you can learn C language and Java before joining.

    Hi.. Chintan this Neha

    My joining date is 14th Feb ...and I have already book my air ticket of 14th feb before 1 month it will reach Mysore at 12.45 pm on the same day i.e 14 Feb but now they are saying I have to report on 13th Feb which not possible for me now bcoz train tickets not available and my ticket is not refundable plz suggest me wht to ? what will happen if I report on 14 feb in Afternoon

  186. Chintan Patel  


    Hey, i dont know how this escaped you but if your joining is 14th Feb, you have to report on 13th Feb. It is mentioned in the joining details mail also if you have got one.

    Anyways, now you can inform them again explaining your situation in detail and that due to unavoidable circumstances you will not be able to reach on 13th but will report on 14th and see what they respond with.

    Yes, there are TT tables at Infosys, mysore. The sports rooms open at 5 PM and stay open till about 9 or 10 PM.

    I got selected in infosys through campus recruitment..but i made a mistake wit my marks..instead of 81.33% in 12th i filled the application stating 82% and for my bad luck my resume had a printing mistak in my 12th resume it is 83% will there be any problem because of this Sir? this is Anushya..thanks in advance.

  190. Chintan Patel  


    If you comfortably meet the selection criteria at 81.33%, they wont have any problem. The would only have a problem if they find out that you increased your marks just to meet the selection criteria because you were not meeting the criteria before.

    hi chintan...!!!
    i tried to search my query in d answers but i cudn't find if its already answered just tell me that its answered...
    If i complete the 4-6 months training and then resign i mean when they will post me at sum of their sites, i resign and don't work for the deployment period i.e. of 12 months. but i have completed the training ....then do i need to pay sumthing back... if yes then how much... HR told me 25k but seniors are telling 1 lakh...i am confused

  192. Chintan Patel  


    Why do you want to believe seniors when HR already told you? HR's figure should be considered official. Anyways, the amount will be mentioned in the service agreement so dont worry about it right now.

  193. NirajW  

    hi chintan,
    i have completed my infy training in mainframe stream.i am not happy with my posting what are the chances of getting to a good cmpny due to infy training after quiting infosys?..i would also like to know the bond money to pay after quitting the infosys..with and without training certificate..i would also like to know how do they go through exit procedures..

  194. hema  

    sir,does the offer letter contain the joining date too??

  195. Chintan Patel  


    It depends on luck if you just try to apply elsewhere based on only infy training and no working experience. Salary will almost certainly be lower than what you make right now at Infosys. It can be a bit lower to much lower. About the bond money and all, you can read your service agreement. And for exit procedure, you can contact any HR manager.


    It is sometimes like that but mostly your joining date will be communicated to you in a different email/letter later on.

  196. sinduja  

    hi chintan..

    i got placed in infy on dec 21st.. wen they announced the results, they said tat we wud get our call letter in july.. but, they didnt mention anything abt the offer letter..
    bt, all my frnz who got placed in othr companies hav got their offer letters..
    nw my ques is, wil infy offer any offer letter at all, if so wen wud it be given?

  197. Chintan Patel  


    Offer letter will surely come. Call letter is the same as offer letter and as they have mentioned july, you can wait till that time. Even if there is a delay, dont worry about it, it will surely come.

  198. varun  

    Hi chintan... The offer letter is just a confirmation that a candidate has been placed in the company and the call letter contains the actual DOJ...
    But as i have read some where that the DOJ will reach the candidate well before 2 months...
    Is is so? If not pls explain what does both letters actually contain?

  199. Chintan Patel  


    Offer letter contains salary details and that they intend to hire you. DOJ may also be sent by an email. So there is nothing like a special "call letter".

    Anyways, dont get too confused by call letter or offer letter. They are just names and doesnt make a difference what you name it.
