Software major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is going to stay in Lucknow, for now. It will remain here at least till the company launches its consolidated operations in Noida.
An assurance in this regard came after the TCS team, led by its CEO Rajesh Gopinathan, met chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday.
The team that also included COO NG Subramaniam, vice president Alok Kumar and senior general manager SK Nayar made a presentation before the CM about company’s proposals.
“The team made a presentation about its operations in Noida and Varanasi and assured the chief minister of not shifting Lucknow operations for now,” said Sanjiv Saran, principal secretary, information technology.
“TCS has about 15,000 staff in Noida. It proposes to consolidate operations in next two to three years to take the total staff strength there to 25,000--40,000. An option will be given to Lucknow TCS staff to shift to Noida once the company consolidates its operations there in next two to three years,” said Saran.
The state government has also offered land to TCS near Amausi airport and the company’s team has promised to consider the proposal, said Saran.
The TCS delegation also informed Adityanath that the work on its BPO was nearing completion and the company would soon get the same inaugurated.
When contacted, the TCS officials refused to comment.
