Gautham Ghosh mentions that TCS is going for a "disruptive innovation" by hiring science graduates and training them to become software engineers. But isn't this the same thing Wipro has been doing with its WASE program for quite a few years now?

well krishna it's a little different apparently. Wipro's focus was on taking BSc's and turn them into MS (from BITS Pilani) in 4 years time, also locking them in for that period.

TCS's drive doesn't seem to have either bond or further education carrot either

I have a community for the B.Sc/B.C.A students at orkut.

From what i hear i think it is a 2year bond @ TCS unlike WIPRO which is a 4year bond.

Drawback in WIPRO-WASE:
No experience certificate for 4years of work
The MS degree is a distance education.
