Organized Labor Comes To India’s Tech Industry


The Nightmare Comes True

I thought it was terrible. I was wrong. It is far, far worse!–These words sum up my feelings at that moment. Very sad day for India’s booming IT/ITES industry. Now watch out strikes by Indian techies, which will tarnish the relatively good image that outsourcing enjoys among corporations in other countries.

Unionizing IT/BPO sector will hamper the growth of Industry. This will be a back step and it will reduce the growth rate of most booming industry in India. Foreign clients don’t like unionizing the sector because of the fact that it’s just another way to blackmail them.

India’s technology industry, which has been merrily soaking up jobs from higher-cost countries, got a little shock last week when it had its first brush with organized labor.

The Center for Indian Trade Unions, a Communist group that represents several million employees across India, launched the West Bengal Information Technology Services Association in Kolkota. Since it’s not as much a union as an employee rights group, membership is voluntary.

Trade union leaders have accused technology-services firms of abuses ranging from firing employees without notice to not providing transport for workers leaving late-night jobs.

India hails Nepal pact, calls it historic opportunity


Historic agreement my foot..Mr. Prachanda the so called people leader (Maoist Leader and Murder) who had killed his own thousands of people will become PM one day. Who is responsible for all these killings? Supporting Maoist the cancerous organization will be a
big mistake by Indian Government.

New Delhi, Nov 21: Welcoming the agreement reached between Nepal Government and Maoists, India on Tuesday hoped it will end the “politics and culture of violence” there and asked all sides to strictly abide by their commitments to ensure the “historic opportunity” is not lost.

New Delhi said the “critical test” would be the implementation of the agreement on the ground and emphasised that it stands ready to help in every way.

“We believe the agreement reflects overwhelming desire of the people of Nepal for peace and stability,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesman Navtej Sarna said here while welcoming the development.
