Tata Consultancy Services said it inaugurated the first phase of Thane delivery center that will have the capacity to seat 30,000 employees when fully developed, which will make it the largest in Mumbai.
The company, which has a huge operation in Vikhroli in the city, said it will eventually consolidate its Mumbai operations at the newly inaugurated TCS Olympus Centre in Thane.
The center will be developed in 2 phases and includes a training block, club house and gymnasium “thus providing a contemporary and holistic work culture”.
Consolidating operations across Mumbai into this new facility in Olympus Centre will also create more indirect employment opportunities in the Greater Mumbai area, it said.
The new facility is IGBC Platinum rated and has been designed as a “green” campus. It supports rainwater harvesting, sewage treatment, and has low-emission systems and fixtures, India’s largest earner of foreign exchange said.
TCS is the only among India’s top IT companies to call Mumbai its home. Others are either located in Bangalore or in the National Capital area.
“TCS has played a pioneering role to make Maharashtra an attractive IT destination for global companies,” said Rajesh Gopinathan, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, TCS. The new workplace provides agile workspaces, software-defined network, a security operations centre and a cloud-enabled infrastructure, he said, adding that it will help support the company’s next phase of growth.
Interestingly, many of TCS’ competitors are eyeing a future in which they won’t be employing lakhs of engineers as they currently do, and therefore will not require the acres and acres of land that they currently possess.
