INFOSYS LIMITED: Infy to Add Approx 200 Jobs to Metro Atlanta Area Infosys to Add Approximately 200 Jobs to Metro Atlanta Area


                 Additional expansion planned in coming years                  

Cobb County, Metro Atlanta, March 4, 2013 - Infosys, a global leader in
consulting, technology and outsourcing, today announced that it plans to add
approximately 200 new jobs in the next fiscal year at its Cumberland location
in Cobb County, and expects additional expansion in the metro Atlanta area over
the next couple of years.

Infosys has identified Atlanta as a strategic hub for growth in the United
States. The infrastructure, cosmopolitan culture, and talent available in
Atlanta attracted Infosys BPO (its Business Process Outsourcing subsidiary) to
set up an onshore operations center to deliver high-end business process
services to North American clients. Cobb County offers a secure, easily
accessible and central location with world class space available for large
scale business process operations.

Infosys is committed to job creation in the United States, and today's
announcement underscores its continued investment in its Cumberland location
and Georgia. With unparalleled support and guidance from the Cobb Chamber, the
Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, and the Georgia Department of Economic
Development, Infosys is working with the local university system and technical
colleges to recruit local talent, and also to help improve the education system
to equip students with more market relevant curriculum. Infosys plans
additional investment in training and development, with employees also able to
leverage the global resources of Infosys award-winning education center in
India. Career opportunities are available to support high-end business process
services across financial services, insurance, healthcare, retail and legal
process management services.

Gautam Thakkar, Vice President and Unit Head - Enterprise Services, Infosys BPO
said, "It is critical for Infosys to create global hubs of talent, and the
Southeast is a key U.S. region with a number of our important clients. We also
are impressed with the highly skilled talent pool available in Atlanta, and
look forward to our expansion to continue to improve services to our
customers."

The company also is committed to the local community as a whole. For example,
the Infosys USA Foundation recently presented a grant to the YWCA of Greater
Atlanta's "Teen Girls in Technology" (TGI Tech) program, which helps middle and
high school girls cultivate an interest and competence in science, technology,
engineering and mathematics (STEM).

In addition to Atlanta, Infosys BPO also has a delivery center in Des Moines,
Iowa, part of the 19 Infosys locations throughout the United States.

"Infosys is an integral part of metro Atlanta's technology community and we are
pleased that it has decided to expand operations here following the opening of
their new business center last year," said Hans Gant, Senior Vice President of
Economic Development at Metro Atlanta Chamber. "Maintaining our close ties with
India and companies like Infosys is central to our growth strategy for the
region and it is through collaboration with our partners that these success
stories continue to happen. Infosys will create jobs that bolster a key
industry for metro Atlanta."

"Georgia has a talent pool with the job skills that business process
outsourcing requires," said Gretchen Corbin, Deputy Commissioner with the
Georgia Department of Economic Development. "Thanks to a large existing
workforce in this area, and the knowledge workers coming out of our
universities, we think Georgia and Atlanta will see more of this kind of
activity in the future."

For Cobb County, the Infosys expansion represents not only desirable new jobs,
but also an expanding information technology and software industry and global
commerce.

"Cobb County is excited to see one of its global companies expanding," said
Brooks Mathis, Vice President of Economic Development for the Cobb Chamber and
Executive Director of Cobb's Competitive EDGE, a community and economic
development strategy for the county. "Infosys is an important asset and
corporate partner in our community for many reasons. The company is
experiencing phenomenal growth and providing coveted high-paying jobs. Plus on
a global scale, Infosys' investment in Cobb represents growing commercial ties
between the U.S. and India."

This jobs announcement also exemplifies the diversity of industries within the
Cumberland submarket and Cobb County. This project is the result of teamwork
and strategic partnerships between various agencies. Key members on this
project include the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Metro
Atlanta Chamber, the Cobb Chamber, and the colleges and universities in Cobb
County.
