Information technology and bio technology (IT/BT) companies are encouraging employees to continue working from home after the partial relaxation of the lockdown from 20 April, except for those involved in critical functions.

“Despite the partial relaxation of the lockdown from 20 April, please do so (come to office) only if absolutely, absolutely essential. I plan to continue working from home because I can and want to make way for those that truly need to be out," Wipro chairman Rishad Premji said in a tweet on Saturday.

At Wipro, 93% of its billable employees have received client approvals to deliver services from home. “There are certain types of critical work such as testing in our labs for 5G as part of our engineering services, which can’t be done from home. Then there are certain HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) privacy requirements in the BPO business because of which customers may not give approvals to work from home," Abidali Neemuchwala, CEO and managing director, Wipro told Mint recently.
