Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 16 (IANS) A member of Kerala Human Rights Commission made a surprise visit at the Technopark campus Saturday following a complaint that labour laws are being violated.
S. Varughese received an anonymous letter claiming that labour laws were being violated at the premier IT park.
'I have made inquiries, but there is no case. If I receive a specific complaint I will look into it,' said Varughese to reporters.
The Technopark campus, situated on the outskirts of the city, employs 12,500 employees in 105 IT firms.
By November construction will take place on 600,000 square feet. This will generate 6,000 more jobs.
The total investment in the 236 acre Technopark campus has crossed Rs.7 billion.
Sunil Gupta, president of G-Tech, told IANS: 'The question of companies not paying the minimum wage does not arise because salaries, even at the lowest level, are much higher here.'
Top Technopark official M. Vasudevan said the member visited two IT companies and was satisfied after looking at the documents.
