TCS employs almost 2.5 lac Indians working in various cities across India. Imagine each one of them using an office resource to get something done. A live example was what TCS got and it has put pressure on its logistics.
As Diwali is fast approaching, employees who have their going home plan made long time back are busy printing their flight tickets from their office printer. Imagine 2.5 lac people printing at the same time.
Almost all offices are running short of blank white paper. Most employees are taking 2-3 prints of the same ticket, in case they misplace the original ticket.
The supervisors are not able to blame their employees as they themselves are involved in such a large scale malpractice. The employees meanwhile have promised that they will replace the paper used once they are back from their Diwali vacations. But such promises are of no use as TCS gives many such promises to its clients also which are never fulfilled.
An emergency meeting was called at their Mumbai office to discuss the issue where some announcements were made. One employee can print only one ticket a year and the number of tickets you print is proportional to the position one holds. Employees are happy with the decision and can enjoy Diwali every year with the same enthusiasm.
