A lot is being outsourced to your neck of the woods - Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore - so you're in the best place!

Software testing is more of a volume game and most banks have started offshoring it to other low cost destinations over the last 3-4 years. I think this would be the trend and so I would not recommend you to leave your current job if you are already working some where else. Even if you manage to get something here, I am pretty sure that you will be perennially on tenterhooks wondering about the change in offshoring strategy.
