The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has set up a joint working group (JWG) to look into the industry requirements related to work from home (WFH) for entities that are registered as Other Service Providers (OSP). The working group comprises of senior DoT officials, NASSCOM and members of the IT-BPM industry. Some of the issues on which the working group is deliberating upon include the need to make current relaxations permanent, enable employees to work from anywhere instead of home locations, adoption of cloud based solutions for better productivity etc.
