TCS management denies reports of Lucknow operations being shut down

IT major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has decided to close its operations centre in Lucknow, sources in the company told News18.

TCS vice president Tej Paul Bhatla was in Lucknow on Wednesday, where he met and asked project managers to finish their programmes by December or shift to the centres in Indore, Noida and continue working there. The project managers have also been asked to convey the message to their team members.

The company’s move is set to put  the jobs of more than 2,000 IT professionals, working at the TCS Lucknow centre, in jeopardy. With almost 50 percent of those working in the Centre being women, living with their families in Lucknow, finding a new job or shifting to a new city might well be an immense challenge for them.

However, when TCS released its earnings later in the day, the management stressed that there were no layoffs taking place at the company. CEO Rajesh Gopinathan said that all talk of layoffs was “malicious rumour-mongering”, and that the company is consolidating its operations in Noida.
