A Great Britain national has alleged that India's technology giant Tata Consultancy Services [TCS] has broke visa norms and favouring migrant workers. He also threatened that he has the company's employee database in order to prove his accusations which he collected from an unknown source.
The man is restaurant owner by named Prashant Sengar. He claimed that TCS has offered him a job but later discriminated by delaying his appointment. Sengar also said, the company has hired someone in place of him with lesser pay. However TCS has squashed all these allegations and said no job was offered to Sengar but accepted that they would keep him in mind if there is any suitable position for the techie in future.
Not stopping here, Sengar mailed to UK TCS's top executive alleging that the company has been violating visa norms and that their policies were discriminatory favouring migrant workers who could work for low wages. However all his mails were ignore. Then Sengar wrote to CEO and MD of TCS Natarajan Chandrasekaran repeating his claims. On May 3rd Sengar mailed to CEO Chandrasekaran demanding a job with a salary of 55,000 Pounds and also information a committee to ensure immigration rules were not broken.
TCS again ignored his mail but took the issue serious when Sengar again sent an e-mail on May 18, 2014. In it, Sengar wrote: “I have managed to get a full list of employees presently working in UK and America and have selected few for your reference.... This is just a sample and I have a list of 1023 employees just in UK who have been employed in Breach of Tier 2 ICT.” Stunned by this TCS approached the London High Court on June 2. The Court heard the arguments on June 6 and TCS alleged that Sengar is blackmailing the company. The court upheld TCS arguments and ordered Sengar to return the confidential information in his possession
TCS has about 3 lakh employees and operating in 46 countries, which makes an annual revenue of nearly $13.5 billion.
