According to media reports, TCS is set to close its operations in Lucknow. The employees have also reported that they have already been told about this by their team leaders.

As per the highly placed sources in the company, the operations were not profitable for the company and the revision of the rent contract of TCS Lucknow’s premises added to the woes.

 The 10-year lease, which expired in May 2017, was extended for another 11 months after failed negotiations between the builder and the company. TCS Lucknow currently houses in Awadh Park, located in the Vibhuti Khand area of Gomti Nagar in Lucknow

Regional Head of TCS, Amitabh Tewari had earlier dismissed the news of lease expiry. Media tried to contact him but he was unavailable for comments on the matter.

It is also being reported that the employees have even written to the Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath and sought his intervention in the matter.

According to some people, the office was started with a team of some 500 employees. Presently, TCS's Lucknow office has 1700 employees and 500 support staff, which includes housekeeping security and other contract staff.

After so many reports leaking out to the media, TCS came out with an official statement and said, “The Lucknow centre had less than 1000 employees. It was not a convenient place for client related work. TCS is looking to consolidate its operations in Uttar Pradesh and the current Lucknow workforce will shift its operations to Noida and Varanasi. All employees will be relocated, no one will be fired.”
