JP Morgan told to explain India outsourcing plan
Source: Economic Times India

20 Mar 2009, 0201 hrs IST, ET Bureau

NEW DELHI: About 43 members of the US Congress have written to financial services firm JP Morgan Chase, asking it to explain its plans to increase outsourcing to India.

ET had earlier reported that JP Morgan plans to increase outsourcing to India by 25%. The financial services firm has been the recipient of $25-billion from the US governments Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP).

In a letter addressed to JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, the Congress members asked: How should these American workers, many of them your consumers, be expected to have hope for a better future when the very companies they contributed to through TARP outsource the jobs they desperately need? A JP Morgan Chase spokesperson in India refused to comment on the matter.

There has been furore over outsourcing by American financial institutions that have received billions of government funds under its bailout package. For such firms, outsourcing, and offshoring to low-cost destinations such as India in particular, makes greater sense than ever before, as they look to cut costs.

Most banks are looking to offshore more to India. With anti-outsourcing noises being made in the US, everyone is watching as to whether and how they will translate into action, said sourcing advisory firm Everest principal Nikhil Rajpal.

Senators Chuck Grassley and Bernie Sanders recently introduced a legislation in the US Senate to prevent recipients of the government bailouts from hiring H1-B visa holders for one year. The Senate later cleared a watered-down version that allowed such companies to hire H1-B workers, but first prove they had made efforts to hire American workers.

3. Got a call from Discover Card security last week.
The caller had such a heavy accent I could barely understand him and when he asked for my SS# I became convinced it was an overseas scam. I called Discover at its published # to report the attempted scam, and the Security Dept person I was transferred to had the same heavy accent. I couldn't understand him either and hung up. I still don't know whether the call was legit or a scam.
