The US government announces plans on cutting more than $61 billion from its general budget. Sounds like bad news, but one man’s meat is often another man’s poison. Offshore development companies in India are looking forward to the austerity measures that might bring an increasing number of outsourcing contracts to the Asian nation.

Market analysts project the biggest growth in the sector of IT health care outsourcing. TCS and Wipro already have outsourcing contracts worth $407 million over nine years with the US state Missouri. The two organizations and other offshore development companies, providing similar services might accelerate their revenues by closing new deals.
