The Japan-based Indian employees of Infosys Technologies are returning to India, its chief executive said, as panic swept Tokyo after a rise in radioactive levels around an earthquake-hit nuclear power plant.

"Some of them have returned, some are in the process of coming back," S Gopalakrishnan said. "The revenue from Japan is very small and overall it will have a minimal impact on business."

Infosys, India's second-largest software services exporter, has about 500 employees in Japan out of which 350 are from India, he said.

Several embassies advised staff and citizens to leave affected areas, tourists cut short vacations and multinational companies either urged staff to leave or said they were considering plans to move outside Tokyo where low levels of radiation have been detected.
