A Rough Ride on the IT Highway
All along I was under the impression that the bus operators who provide buses for ferrying the IT professionals would be paid a good sum as the IT companies were cash-rich. The IT companies already charge anywhere between Rs. 500 & 1250 per month from the employees who use the bus facility depending on factors such as location of the employee's residence and the location of the office premises. This report on how the bus operators don't get paid enough for their effort definitely comes as a surprise. The report states that even old economy companies offer good prices to the private bus operators. It is time for the IT industry to adopt some of these best practices.
