In the wake of the commencement of metro work on the Outer Ring Road (ORR), from Silk Board to K.R. Puram, the State government has come out with an advisory to IT companies.

In the advisory issued by Additional Chief Secretary, Department of Electronics, IT&BT, E.V. Ramana Reddy, the State government has asked the IT companies, especially those located on ORR, to extend the work-from-home option for most of the employees till December, 2022.

They have also been advised to stagger the working hours for employees working at office. To reduce the traffic congestion on the road, the companies have been asked to encourage employees working from office to take BMTC buses or employee bus services provided by the company by using bus lanes.

The advisory has been sent to the regional director of the National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) and circulated among the companies.
