THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Though the nation-wide strike was near-total in Kerala, the state’s IT sector remained more-or-less insulated from its impact, with over 70 per cent attendance reported at Technopark here as well as at Infopark in Kochi.

A convoy of buses from Technopark with police escort brought in a large number of the work-force from areas in and around the capital in the morning. Most of the techies reached their offices on two-wheelers on account of the strike.

Two-wheeler parking bays in Technopark Phase I, II and III as well as the campuses of UST Global and Infosys were seen occupied to their maximum capacity.The convoy of buses was also deployed at 5.30 pm also to transport the majority of the workers back to their homes. An extra bus service was provided at 7 pm from East Fort in the city for those employees working in the night shift.

“Since most of the IT professionals have the option of logging in from home, employees who stay far away from Technopark were also virtually on duty today,” said a senor official. The strike did not have a major impact as the majority of the employees who resided in and around the satellite town of Kazhakkottam, came to office by foot, he added. The Infopark in Kochi also reported brisk attendance of over 70 per cent, said sources.
