– One of our friend undergoing ILP @ TCS

TCS Recent Update:   

OCTOBER 28,2010

  • Proud to be a TCSer
  1. You will feel proud that you are a part of an organization that brought India among top global business countries.

  2. Will feel respect that other person will have it for you once you say that  “You are working for TCS “

  3. Power of signature , which has hardly any significance few months back but can now fetch Lakhs from any bank .

  4. Power of Official email ID -> It is said that whenever you send mail from TCS  email id you are not representing yourself, you are also representing TCS. so once it is misused and sent to client , it may terminate the project and can cause loss for TCS ,in terms of million of dollars.

  5. Feeling that life is not all about getting pass in ILP,but u will feel life is all bout going one step forward every time.

  6. Lastly , you will feel its a perfect time to share your responsibility in a family where ours parent has invested Lakhs and that too with such a love n patience n suffering.Now its our turn to make them happy !

  • One of the most appreciative work of TCS is that , they have the collaboration with book24* possible book of every category is available in e-book format and is totally free for TCSers and non TCSers have to pay a minimum of 400$ per category of the book , to become the member of this site.The book24*7 site has a very good user interface which will make you to learn more and more. You can access it , once you join the TCS

OCTOBER 27,2010

  • There are 3 kinds of people in TCS.

    1. One who believes in buttering.They may get good performance rating and better variable pay.But buttering will not ensure on site project ,no matter how much u do !
    2. Getting on site project is totally performance oriented.
    3. One who think that as they get into TCS , so with this every responsibility is they stay at same post and will only be promoted on basis of experience but not merit.
    4. One who has a habit of continuous learning but sadly only 10-15 % falls into this category.But for them TCS has such a variety of opportunity one cant even imagine of…

OCTOBER 4,2010

  • No matter how intelligent or how dumb you are …! The only thing matters in ILP is the average performance of your batch (i.e.,) around 30 – 40 and based on which the stream is allocated to the whole batch.

OCTOBER 1,2010

  • Nothing will happen even if you fail in Exams during ILP. All you need to have is positive attitude and a proper behavior . Your ILP days will be extended and they set up less than 35 / 100 to take retest . TCS thinks thrice before throwing a TCSer out !

  • Those who are not interested in some specific stream , suppose Java and got Java as a stream can change his project other than Java after ILP , provided other project is there or wait for project on bench and join as soon as possible

  • If any one wish to do higher studies after two years , TCS will give you leave for two years without pay , with One year bond and No Sponsorship.


  • TCS has 20 holiday resorts in India , almost at all famous hill stations and few in South East Asian Countries . Charges are as low as Rs.200 per day in India and around Rs.1100 outside India . One can book it any time.

  • TCS has Insurance tie up with Medical Assistance , India Group.It covers complete medical expenses.Rs.50,000 for general treatment and upto 5 Lakhs / Year for majors.It includes cashless treatment at Aiims,Fortis,Gangaram,Escort. Rs.2000 is charged from an employee per year and Rs.6000 for parent , which is optional.


  • Common training is conducted in classroom & labs , whereas in stream training you will be provided with cubicles . Each consist of 4 members


  • There are project assignments given and there will be regular team meetings, conference & so !

  • There is no Pre – ILP test conducted but there are three tests during training , EC1,EC2 and EC3 . Each test is conducted in a interval of 10 days!



  • TCS has tie up with Indian Airlines ! When you are coming back from abroad , you are allowed to bring 25% extra with respect to other passengers.


  • Getting foreign project is almost every one’s dream! If you are put up in a project abroad, you will be given free lodging , food + Your actual salary , every month .

  • TCS has a policy , “If you clear all IT (Income Tax) Certification , we will pay you full amount”


  • ILP is 55 working days for the year 2010.


  • From a TCSer: Please make your profiles in Linkedin . Came to know the importance of this site from HR.Now every company started to search your profile in LinkedIn.They see your networking strengths and how many recommendations you have @ work. Promotions in thae company are concerned with these things only!*Linkedin is the only social networking site which we can access from TCS .

  • TCS has a site Ultimatix and all study materials can be accessed online only

  • Laptops are allowed only in Hostel , restricted in Office

  • From HR Head,Chennai ILP: First day for Fresher @ TCS … Majority came with parents and siblings.It seems TCS turned like a KinderGarten School but that shows even their parents feel PROUD  and don’t want to miss to see you entering into TCS first time !

SEPTEMBER 9 , 2010

  • Every year TCS Celebrates a Family Day where each employee can bring up to four family members and make them visit the whole TCS Campus and their cubicle where they use to work.At this particular day free transport service and free food is provided by the company plus a picnic organized by company at some theme park or a similar place. Everything is free of cost!

  • After one year in TCS , you can take leave up to one continuous year but you will not get paid by TCS during this time but you will remain as TCS employee!

  • TCS has started posting Job Openings in it’s internal portal for it’s employee to show their talent.There are 2000 + vacancies in UK and Europe.If u have capability for TCS Project any where in the world you can apply for it and you will be shifted. ** Applicable after One Year , since you have joined TCS

Got info from a person undergoing ILP @ Trivandrum that there won’t be any joining in Trivandrum till 20th of October because already Trivandrum is full. Three batches will be relieving in the month of October @ Trivandrum but the vacancy is sufficed to accommodate the persons who are already there.
