Traffic jams from ELCOT SEZ in Sholinganallur becomes pathetic and many IT companies approached ELCOT officials to open rear side gate for movement of vehicles. ELCOT officials agree to the corporate request for the benefit of employees and agree to open rear side for movement of vehicles only for exit. This gate is opened from 23rd Sep and now people travelling to OMR from ELCOT can take this route. This will reduce traffic by nearly
40% and congestion will be reduced drastically. This is welcome move from ELCOT officials and NDLF thank corporates for helping in the implementation of this move.

“Dominant caste psyche without even a speck of guilt consciousness against caste oppression” forms an important foundation to the mentality of taking the atrocities against minorities as normal. However, the main background for the creation of this new situation is because the Brahminical Hindu religion has never been challenged ideologically in these states.

Water crisis in Chennai is at peak now. We have massive flood in Chennai several years before and within 5 years of this historical 100 year record flood, Chennai is on news with water crisis as main issues.
Last week there are lot of news circulating that IT companies are having deep water crisis and they did not able to run their offices. As a result, many IT companies are asking their employees to work from home. Many of the IT employees are now working from their home. This is hot news in many leading newspapers and we also got calls from various news magazines like Puthiya Thalaimurai and News 7 channel. We will explore answer for this issue with much closer look.

we need to explore how to overcome this issue. The answer lies with employees working on other sectors. Last year, we have seen Yamaha worker protest in Chennai Oragadam where majority of the workers went on strike against the management. These sectors has more union powers and this secure their job and provide possibilty of going on strike.

Election is near and the political parties are wooing voters with all kinds of promises. Election manifestos of all the parties have covered almost all popular demands. Like the way they did in the past, now also the rights and demands of working women are left unaddressed. Though we are equal in number of votes, we face this inequality.

The standing orders given by the government does not provide power to terminate employees under the reasons that the employee is a supervisor or citing performance issues through appraisal. In Karnataka, the IT Sector got an exemption from this standing order. This exemption was obtained in the year 2014 and was valid till 2019 and recently the Karnataka Government has extended this exemption for another five years till 2024. This is the main difference we see between two different verdicts on this issue.
