Bangalore seems to be heading the race with almost 24 percent of total discrepancies coming from the city.

The main index in the report was recognized as the “Applicant Discrepancy Index” (AFI), which is a single value to point toward the employee screening trends in India. This value was derived from the “Primary Indices”. The primary indices indicate the trends across the 4 basic categories- employment, education, address and others. These are resultant by considering two factors- (i) Business impact (impact is measured against sub-factors in each category. E.g. Employment has 12 sub factors like incorrect tenure, exit formalities not completed and the like) and (ii) Frequency/number of cases in each case. The Secondary indices indicate the movement of 4 basic categories of discrepancy (employment, education, address and others) across cities, zones, industry verticals etc. This is again derived using two factors (i) Business impact (ii) frequency of occurrence

Four main categories of Indices have been developed – employment, education, address and criminal & others. Each of these 4 index has a list of wide-ranging parameters under them. They are further supported by secondary indices such as city, industry vertical, level of hiring and education. Ten major cities across India along with ten major industry verticals have been covered in this index. The index is strongly partial by the business impact of discrepancy and also on the frequency of cases.
