LATEST NEWS : India’s largest IT services firm Tata Consultancy Services is shutting its Lucknow centre as part of the consolidation of its UP operations and has asked its over 1,000-odd employees to either shift to its centre in Noida, Indore or any other facility in the country


“We are consolidating our UP operations. There have neither been any job losses nor have we asked anyone to quit,” said a TCS spokesperson.


TCS is also setting up a large BPO operation in Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency next year and some of these staff could  be absorbed in the centre.


The 10-year old facility in Gomti Nagar, does  internal process for TCS and has a small team that works on projects for  global clients.


TCS employees in Lucknow were briefed about the development  on Wednesday, following which they have petitioned UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath and Prime Minister Modi  for their intervention.
