Tata Technologies has announced that it will slash its workforce by more than 20,000 people across India by the end of next year.
The company said that it is cutting about 2,000 posts in the manufacturing, supply chain and logistics sectors, and the rest of the workforce is being eliminated.
In a statement, the Tata Group said it is laying off between 8,000 and 10,000 workers in India.
Tata is part of the Tata group of companies, which is the world’s second-largest technology company with a market capitalisation of more than $4 trillion.
The company also said that the jobs that will be cut include those in the Tata Research & Development (TRD) Group, which includes Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), and the Tata Sons Group.
Tata is the parent company of Tata Sons and Infosyd, which are two of the world, global technology companies.
According to the Tata statement, about 12,000 positions will be eliminated in India over the next year as well.
Earlier this month, Tata Technologies announced that the number of workers employed in its Indian operations would be cut by between 3,000 to 5,000 over the course of the year.
The move comes as Tata has been battling with the Indian government over the treatment of workers in the country.
Last week, the government announced that workers at Tata Advanced Technology, the parent of Tata Technologies, would be given two weeks leave for holidays.
However, Tata has accused the government of dragging its feet over the issue.
