As you might have already noticed from media and other sources, various kinds of cheating are becoming prevalent in the name of IT/ITeS companies for the past few years in India's IT capital, Bangalore. The majority of the victims are from poor or middle class families who are fresh out of their graduation and who are desperate to get a job. Four different cases have been reported in the last few weeks. Electrosys and Ireckonsoft had duped the employees by offering fake jobs for cash. In another related incidents names of well reputed companies like Wipro and Infosys were used by the fraudsters to cheat the job seekers.
ITEC has decided for an extensive campaign highlighting this issue of fraud companies. The campaign is aimed to create awareness in the society, pressurize the government to take precautionary measures to prevent such fraudulent practices, take stringent actions against the culprits and provide adequate justice to the employees of such companies. The awareness campaign will also focus on the freshers who are vulnerable to fall into such traps. The campaign will include various awareness creation programs at various locations in Bangalore, a convention in which different experts from industry will be part of to formulate set of demands and finally campaign should end with submitting set of demands to state Govt.
As part of this, a Program Committee is convened for discussing and coming out with the exact plan of the Campaign, details of which are as below:
Venue: Jaaga Creative Common Ground (New location), No 68, Lalbagh KH Road, Opp. Vijaya Bank & Next to HDFC Bank, Bangalore.
