Why Getting Bangalored is such an achievement

ITES, It, Bangalored, outsourcing

You got your job banglored’ this phrase has found its space among slang comments worldwide. ‘Bangloring’ actually talks of the world’s envy and India’s pride…Not because it refers to India’s Silicon Valley – Banglore – but to the booming IT and ITES sectors in the country.

A person is said to be ‘banglored’ when he loses a job because his work has been outsourced to Banglore or any other Indian city. However, every time Indian IT gurus overhear ‘bangloring,’ it brings a sense of achievement to them.

In this global community, whosoever is capable of providing the best of industry will gain business. Prena Kalra, the human resource executive of Quark, Mohali, says, “Coinage of this terminology itself says all about the Indian IT and ITES sector. It’s a positive sign for the Indian economy.”

Recounting an interesting incident that took place during a trip to Europe, the chairman of Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council for Punjab, Harjinder Singh Kahlon says, “On a recent business trip to Bavaria when I found inquisition about the BPO industry there, a senior officer refused to provide me with details. He was afraid that we Indians might attract offshore companies to our country, offering a better bargain.”

The Bavarian officer’s reservations didn’t bother him, rather he took it as a compliment. Proud Harjinder further demands help from the government to take our country forward in this prospering arena of technology. He adds, “We have gained on outsourcing because of cost-effectiveness, quality and talent pool. But there’s room for more development. The government should boost research and development in the IT sector by facilitating with economical incubation centers.”
While many IT players are boasting of national goals, others are busy checking bank balance as the smart souls are minting dollars sitting here in India. What a business sense!

Meet general manager of BPO Sachitel Communications, Jaswinder Singh, Chandigarh, who does not believe in leaving motherland for money. He quips, “You make a mark if you earn in dollars and spend in rupees. That’s saving, and we take pride being leaders in such a business through outsourcing.”
