Is the job market in India picking up? Are more people getting offers? Are developers being actively solicited away from their current jobs?

I think it is as good as it gets for last 1 year or so. In India, perhaps it is beter than what it was during 2000 dot-com boom.

The market is really hot. Lots of big projects in pipeline with most companies and hence lots of recruitment in anticipations. Few indicators -

1. Consultants / Bodyshoppers call/email almost everyday.
2. Companies relaxing their entry criteria, earlier most cos. had B.E. requirements, nowadays its come down to any graduation. It seems they are looking for 2 hands and 2 legs.
3. Salary increments by 40% are common.
4. Companies using onsite opportunities as a bait to attract people. They blatantly use that in their advertisements.

A bit concerned since many cos. are bidding for the same projects and pipelines are predicted on that. Now obv. bids would go to one company only. So what do other companies do with their resources ? Thats the scary picture ahead.

Yes,Since 2003 December market is good.Difference between 99-2000 and now is although many shops claiming to have lot of work,hiring is still cautious.Infosys still requires consistent GPA from your highschool till university.Recent job fair last week in Bangalore attracted somewhere about 40000 people from southern Indian states.30 to 40 companies were present.
During 99-2000,many dot coms were in hiring spree.Now bigger ones are in market.
