    Metro is not accessible to everyone. It need to expand quickly. Until the phase 2 is not ready it won't make a huge impact in a normal bangalorians life. Which is 5-6 years away.

    yeah, but didn't you miss the obvious? This is a highly uncomplicated job- manage a few minutes of phone calls. You can get relatively cheap labor even in the UK to do this. How come to even manage a small portion of call centre activity they've not been engaged?

    once the white filed line and the north bangalore line opens it will become an important option.

    Damn truth. China are certainly not better at making trainers, that much I can vouch for, but it's great for trainer companies because people have to buy 4 or 5 to find one without a wonky sole.

    yeah, despite so called HUGE backlash against hordes of indians handling calls in 'bad english', you couldn't even make a modest success of call centre work? Any company that wants to build a slight edge in customer service could have made a modest addition of britain's vast employed workforce to increase customer satisfaction? Nope- nada, just didn't happen. That shows cost is not the only consideration here. britain really doesn't have a good workforce to support innovation industry. You've innovated hardly anything. The only industry that thrives is financial services, which makes sense for a country of small importance like yours.

    here you go more 'call centre' work. The fact that India has built an army of analysts with high quality regression analysis techniques over 20 years has obviously missed you. These are people who have the best expertise in credit analysis in the world, as shown by the large deployments made by the likes of HSBC and Citibank for decades. But of course in the world of the illiterate briton who has barely managed to understand the industry will sit comfortably on his chair and make empty speeches on 'cost cutting' and 'cheap labor'. RBS should have done this a long time ago instead of leaving it to amateurs.

    It's a phenomenon called social dumping. It's a race to the bottom, you're literally the cheapest people they could find who still speak a semblance of English. It really wouldn't matter how much people complained, or the fact foreign criminals employed abroad are illegally selling confidential customer data, profit and shareholders are held above customers and they all made the move to send customer services abroad simultaneously so there was no market competition. And call centres are definitely not regarded as 'innovative industry' LOL, they are the battery farms of employment and the people employed in them only marginally smarter than battery chickens.

    Pay in call centres is typically £8/hour in the UK (for the few left), the national average is £13.50/hour, an engineering graduate at Exxon Mobil gets £21/hour and engineering contractors get £50-60+/hour or £100-150/hour when on an oil rig. So the fact you have call centre jobs really isn't the big win you think it is and the fact you think they are good jobs is so pathetically sad that I almost shed a tear for you.

    yeah, there's another phenomenon called being an ostritch and being stupid. I know several people approached by RBS, they're reaching out to some of the most experienced credit risk analysts I have ever known, people who came top of the class in Engineering or Mathematics and worked with Regression based models for over 14 to 15 years, the sort that pioneered new ways of analysis and built new financial models. India succeeded by building an army of higly skilled professionals in this field over a decade- a fact further endorsed by the likes of J P Morgan and Wells Fargo suddenly increasing their teams (Citibank with a lot of foresight did it a decade ago). Britain hasdone none of this, has no body similar to Nasscom, probably the most sophisticated Industry association in the world, never had the strategy or the foresight that India showed. But no problems, loudly declare in the simplest terms why you LOSE all the time. We clock $150 Billion a year in IT exports a year- obviously we will touch 200 Billion soon- that's 10% of your entire economy. Either perform or shut the hell up.

    Pffft, it's a long time since anyone has ever used 'RBS', 'experienced' and 'credit analysts' in the same sentence. RBS being the heaviest of the big bank bailouts. And what you're talking about has nothing to do with call centres.
