Bengaluru: Karnataka Higher Education Minister Dr CN Ashwath Narayan said the work from home (WFH) culture implemented by many companies has impacted employment in Bengaluru.


He was responding to Congress MLC BK Hariprasad, who had raised the issue of employment at the Legislative Council. Citing the survey, Hariprasad said that while Hyderabad and Pune have increased employment by 10% and 13% respectively, the same for Bengaluru has risen by 4%.

Ashwath Narayan further said that soon there will be a steady recovery in the economy and jobs as the COVID-19 situation continues to improve. Also,  the government is conducting and organising job fairs and related events where 1.1 lakh people have secured employment.

Earlier, BJP MP PC Mohan had also cited WFH as a factor for the slowdown in employment.
