Indian IT Firms Increase Working Hours

I am surprised at the lengthening of work hours by the big names in software industry, Infosys, Wipro, TCS, name it and you have them on the list. Read here. Their philosophy seems exact opposite of what I believe all software companies did. Perhaps I am wrong. I always thought that the best way of increasing productivity is by setting tighter deadlines (or stretch target) rather than monitoring individual clocked time inside the company.

If I want my engineers to work longer hours I just need to crash my delivery schedule proportionately. That's where the solution lies.

What am I missing?
