With the situation in Japan taking a turn for the worse, Indian I.T companies have begun the process of relocating their employees out of Japan.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has already initiated the process of relocation for its 200 employees in Japan. A company official was quoted saying “We are ready to relocate our Indian employees and their families back to India as well as move our Japanese employees and their families to other locations of safety”

Infosys has offered its 367 employees in Japan an option to return to India. Similarly other I.T companies that have their presence in Japan such as HCL, MindTree and Cognizant have also begun bringing back their employees.

Wipro Inc. However, has taken a different stand on this issue, the company’s CEO says” Wipro cannot treat people of different nationality, differently. Everyone s facing the same situation, It is important that we show solidarity to the Japanese people by staying put in the country”
