One Night @ The Call Center

After the initial concerns about data theft and information security, western media is now trying to reveal the sin side of the Indian call center:

They are the young faces and polite voices of India’s economic boom but the country’s growing number of call centre staff handling British and American customer inquiries have a guilty secret.

According to senior police officers and pollsters they are also leading a social revolution against traditional Indian values by having extramarital affairs and taking party drugs.

According to insiders the centres are generating a work-hard, play-hard culture where liberal attitudes to sex and club drugs are thriving. The staff work under high pressure and are rewarded with “team-building” parties.

One of India’s most senior police officers said the western companies behind the call centres were causing a breakdown in the fabric of Indian family life.


  • And do what? Dent the Indian BPO industry? It is far too steeped in to be dented anymore. As far as the cultural impact is concerned, I guess MTV and Channel V did more harm than these BPOs are doing now. What they generated back then is being practiced now in daily life, in BPO or outside of it.
