Infosys’s views followed Tata Motors’ announcement earlier in the day that they would keep work suspended at the Nano plant as they were “distressed” at the limited clarity on the outcome of talks between the state and agitators to end the protest disrupting the low-cost car project.
Reacting to the developments, Infosys’ board member and human resources chief Mohandas Pai said, “Singur has created a fear in the minds of India Inc. We are watching the development very closely.”
“We have neither pulled out nor planning to. We will rethink and reconsider the situation if need be,” he added.
“Singur has happened and we have seen what the impact is. It is very sad what has happened in West Bengal… People are scared, employees are scared… It is causing a rethink at this point of time, as is for all companies in India,” channel quoted Pai as saying.
“We have seen what is happening there and obviously there is a fear psychosis. We are watching and waiting to see what will happen finally,” Pai said, adding, “it will take some time for anybody to come to a conclusion.”
However, the government ruled out any change related to plant of Tata Motors or other vendors.
