    TCS will have 75% of its employees WFH by 2025.
    In that context why should they invest so much money?

    Such investment decisions are based purely on stability of government, state's governance policy, corruption free environment and ease of business.
    BJP has promulgated these measures effectively. Tatas are very finicky.

    This proposal was of two year old,was cleared by the govt post covid...now the rules of the game have changed...60% of software employees work from home,,so there is hardly any organisation will build huge offices...this is all false propoganda by the politicians and the media...

    Mangaluru has two software biggies of India, Infosys and Cognizant. Wipro & HCL wer also making chikput news here and there but not so big news like TCS.

    MRPL could not employ Tuluvas as Tuluvas were not interested in hard to understand Chemical Engineering. Tuluvas are soft people, they are only interested in software. TCS's soft movement to Tulunadu should be welcome by all software Tuluvas.

    IN the current pandemic situation more and more software companies are allowing employees to work from home. This situation will continue for another minimum 1 year and there are talks that work from home will be the new norm for software industry going forward. With all these why would IT companies look to setup offices in new locations. Does not make sense.. This proposal was probably before the pandemic began and now approved. If you google you can see that even in 2006 and 2013 there were news floating that TCS is going to start operations in Mangalore. Never materialised.

    just see MRPL. How many people of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi are employed? Not even 1 percent and that too in lower positions.

    This is just eye wash by the bacchali Janara party govt. TCS is so big that they dont care local and state govts. They have direct contact with central. They just throw some crores to the party fund of Bacchali party and get things done their way.

    So TCS company for people of DK and Udupi will be just like applying honey on elbow joint and asking to lick.

    But I am not bothered. We have given 70 years to Congress and let the Bacchali party rule for next 60 years and take India to stone age.

    Sir, then if that's the case MRPL was started when ur own govt was there right? Why they didn't took any action?

    They could have given the permission on basis that local will be employed atleast 30 Percent. why you have not raised voice at that time. Such software companies atleast hire vehicles from here only right. so atleast someone will be benefited out of that. and even if we are eligible we can apply for the job and find our luck.
    Just because BJP is in power don't oppose each and everything.

    Do you know how many local people stay with a software company even after getting recruited?

    People hardly stay with one company for more than 2 years. Been seeing this since past 10 years. People want higher and higher salary and they leave to bangalore and other cities within india as well as Foreign countries like USA , Canada and Australia, perhaps mangalore is too small for them.

    I have seen people fighting to get visas to US. Once they get a Visa and go to USA, their loyalties quickly change and they dump the company that gave them an opportunity to go to US and join other US based companies.

    Not only for higher salary they leave to bangalore. Its lifestyle they want to achieve. People who are staying in Mangalore cannot go to pubs enjoy weekends with opposite sex partners in pubs etc etc as they stay with parents. If we take interviews of freshers then we can realize that. When we say them that ur recruited for Mangalore they say we are looking for bangalore location. and people from other states are ready to work in Mangalore.

    Hope it will soon be functional..Ensure that Local Talented Engineers are recruited from engineering colleges from Mangalore . if not 100% atleast80%.
    If Guided and motivated properly Mangalore has one of the best ,honest, hard working talent pool ..just to give a count ..from my experience out of 100 MAngaloreans I have met world over..on an average 80% of them are honest,righteous and sincere with positive attitude .TCS should and can make the mangalore center on of the their best center .
    Mangalorean Engineers should focus and try to excel in technology areas such as Data science, Artificial intelligence, Iot (internet of things),Robotics,Information security.. and other disruptive technologies. Do not just work like robots ..but apply and think how you can develop solutions and apps to solve day to day problems and earn money and provide employment to a few other people.
    Good luck

    I understand your concern. But it is an Indian multinational company. So anyone can be hired from any part of India. Its a private software company.There is nothing called local employment. The business culture of software companies is different than government companies like MRPL.

    Although a small investment, it is most welcome in Coastal region.
    Communal hatred, petty politics has kept many investors away from Coastal region.
    Let's wish, TCS, India's premier Corporate entity, best of success, and hope their investments will increase in much bigger numbers.
    Hope local bodies, and the public will work in harmony in realizing this investment in these crucial times.
    Jai Hind!!!

    Have you visited the Infosys campus? They have boosted the ecosystem of the region by creating a forest on a barren land. They have utilized enough space. You just need concrete jungle?

    This is certainly delightful news, for citizens of Dakshin Kannada district.. Mangaluru city is an educational hub, where promising technocrats, doctors, nurses, engineers, graduate... most come from other states... Sadly for seventy long years, the educated had to flee this district, due to NIL source of any livelihood !!! Hope and pray other Industrialists, will set up their plants in this district, transforming the coastal belt of Karnataka state !!!
