In an email, a Reliance spokesperson said, “We are looking at the job losses that our employees experienced last year and how we can reduce those as quickly as possible.”
According to the spokesperson, the company has made some changes to its payroll systems and has hired more staff.
The spokesperson said that the company is also working on ways to reduce the impact of digital leasing. “
Our current team has over 2,000 people across India and across our business, so the hiring and firing is being done on a continuous basis,” the spokesperson added.
The spokesperson said that the company is also working on ways to reduce the impact of digital leasing.
The company said it will provide a quarterly report on job losses for the month of September.
Reliance has said that about 100,000 employees were affected by the loss of digital space.
A Reliance executive said that he believes the company’s sales volume in India has been hurt by the digital lease and that the business is now in a “very challenging position”.
The executive said Reliance is “taking steps to address the situation” but that the CEO had not been able to reach out to customers.
The executive also said that Reliance will also be laying off “a significant amount of staff” as it tries to deal with the digital leasing situation.
The employee said that at least 20% of the company was affected by digital lease, while another 30% of staff have been let go.
The CEO of Reliance Communications Ltd, Sanjeev Shukla, has not responded to requests for comment.
The Reliance employee also alleged that Reliant had told employees that “they will have to take a long-term layoff as we have to do this” but “this is not the case”.
“They (the employees) were told that the only option was to resign and to leave,” the employee alleged.
Reliant has denied any such claims.
The emails also show that the Reliance CEO has not given any clear indication about what, if any, action the company will take.
