Tech Mahindra IT winding up Kolkata Operations. Time to intervene and save jobs.
This petition had 1,743 supporters
According to a recent report in Ananda Bazar Patrika, (dated 28.07.2017), one of India's leading IT companies and biggest employers in the sector, Tech Mahindra is planning to wind up their Kolkata operations.
Since then there was mail from former IT minister of erstwhile Left Front Government expressing concern for the present employees. We also saw a subsequent Tweet from the CEO of Tech Mahindra, which looks fine and confidence boosting but does not confirm information which says that there will be no further IT job shifting from Kolkata to other locations. There are still communications being made to the Kolkata leadership team about near future closure. The company is also in the process of shfting its office from DLF IT Park SEZ to a much smaller premises in Sector V. Resources are being connected individually and told to relocate.
This would lead to job loss and affect the sustainability of local business as well. The news has been the cause of general anxiety for the employees of the organization.
Information Technology and Services Employee’s Forum or ITSEF, on behalf of IT employees in the city, call on Tech Mahindra Chairman Mr. Anand Mahindra and CEO Mr. C P Gurnani to clarify their position and clearly come out with a proper message which will stop this mass relocation and stop IT-work shifting to other locations. There should also be a clear message on the future IT resource counts andTech Mahindra's plans for its Kolkata IT operations.
West Bengal for years has been a major resource pool for the IT sector in India, and we take this opportunity to request Tech Mahidra Management to consider West Bengal as their potential expansion destination.
In signing this petition, you will be joining us to request Tech Mahindra team to keep the operations running.
We are also appealing to the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Shrimati Mamata Banerjee and the Government of West Bengal to engage in this issue.
Please take a moment to support our campaign by signing and sharing this petition.
Stand with us in this difficult time.
