Software major Infosys on Thursday said it has not shut down its office in Japan and assured clients there that it would continue to support them.
"Business will continue. The servicing given to clients will continue because they are very very important," Infosys COO Shibulal told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Bangalore.
"Our model is always onsite, offshore, so we have few people there, lot of people here, few people will move back," he said.
After a massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami last week that caused untold damages to life and property, Japan is now facing the threat of a nuclear catastrophe.
"We have capacity all over India. Japan's works happen in many of our developing centres - it could be Mysore, Bangalore, Chandigarh. People are going back to wherever is the base location of the corresponding programme," he said.
Replying to a query on employees based in Japan and shutting of the office, he said, "We have an office, we have people, we have not shut it down. We have given option to some of our people to come back and few have come back and some others will come back."
To a question on whether it would make similar arrangements for Japanese employees if they wish to move out, he said the company was ready to "work out" solutions if the Japanese employees came up with such requests.
