It came as a big shocker for 2000 employees of Tata Consultancy Services after the company decided to wind up its operations from Lucknow and shift to Noida. Employees were asked to either accept the transfers or search for jobs anywhere else.
On Wednesday TCS employees were informed from their team leaders that the company is shifting its operations from Lucknow to Noida and assured that there will be no job loss during the whole process.
When enquired about this matter, the company official in a statement said: “Rumours and reports are being circulated in the media about the company’s operations in Lucknow. TCS would like to clarify that it is only consolidating its UP operations in Noida and there will be no job loss as a consequence.”
Many employees have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and many other cabinet ministers along with UP’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath seeking their intervention in the whole matter. They have urged top ministers to convince the company to stay in Lucknow.
According to a report, TCS is not willing to extend their lease contract with Shalimar group which is going to expire next year. Officials of the Shalimar group too confirmed that the lease term is ending next year.
