After PMC officers sealed the gates, the company immediately took necessary steps and delivered a cheque of Rs 6.18 crore to the PMC.

Sandeep Kishore, CEO and MD, Zensar Technologies, said, “This matter was immediately resolved amicably with the corporation officials and we appreciate the support of the PMC towards our Pune operations.”
