Asking the salary history / CCTC of the candidate is considered as so-called 'standard peactice' in India.

Could anyone comment/share the names of companies which do not force candidates to do salary negotiation based on current CTC?
or
Carry on with the hiring process with not knowing the current salary of the candidate, but make an offer based on their budget and expected CTC mentioned by the candidate?

In short, i am looking for names of companies which do not emphasize so much on CCTC.
