Indian software company Infosys closed its business in Russia, know why the company took this decision? Indian software company Infosys has decided to close its business with Russia. In fact, Indian software company Infosys on Wednesday announced that it is shifting its business out of Russia.
India may not have come under pressure from the US and its allies not to have ties with Russia, but an Indian company has decided to close its business with Russia. In fact, Indian software company Infosys on Wednesday announced that it is shifting its business out of Russia.
What did the company say about this?
Infosys CEO Salil Parekh said, “We have started moving our entire business out of Russia from all our centres in Russia. Now we have less than 100 employees in Russia. We are not working with any Russian company.
Why did Infosys take this step?
Let us tell you that India’s relations with Russia have been very good. In the Russo-Ukraine war, India has not spoken anything against Russia so far. Due to which America and other countries are also putting pressure on India. Not only this, Russia had offered crude oil to India at a low price, which India accepted. There was pressure on this too, but India did not rise. Now the question arises that why a company is suddenly exiting its business like this. The company’s UK connection is behind this, which has compelled the company to take this step.
Daughter-son-in-law was being questioned
In fact, a major reason behind this decision of Infosys is the questions arising in Britain about the son-in-law of the company’s founder N Narayana Murthy and his daughter. Rishi Sunak, son-in-law of Narayana Murthy, is the UK’s finance minister. Rishi Sunak’s wife and Narayana Murthy’s daughter Akshata Murthy is the owner of about one billion dollars in Infosys. Britain’s Finance Minister Rishi Sunak has been accused of taking financial benefits from Russia through his wife Akshata Murthy’s stake in Infosys. Opposition parties have said that they will not contest the by-polls. It is being said that the company has taken this step to end the dispute.
