Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is preparing to bid farewell to Lucknow, as the IT arm of the Tata Group wraps up its operations in the city. The software exporter confirmed that this is part of consolidating their operations in Noida.

According to reports, by the end of the year, the company will shift most of its projects to Noida. At least 2,000 employees, of whom 50% are women, will be affected by this shift. Staff members claimed their team leaders informed them on Wednesday that the company was wrapping up the work at the centre.

“TCS would like to clarify that it is only consolidating its UP operations in Noida and there will be no job loss as a consequence,” said a statement from TCS.

The Lucknow branch of TCS has been in operation for the last 33 years and the company said it will ensure job opportunities for all its employees there in Noida or at other centres.

Many employees at the Lucknow centre have written to Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath to intervene in the matter.

In addition, they have also written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union information and technology minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and UP deputy chief minister Dinesh Sharma.
