Nasscom advises against poaching Satyam's clients

January 12, 2009 12:56 IST

While welcoming the reconstitution of the scam-tainted Satyam [Get Quote] board, the Nasscomchairman Ganesh Natrajan on Monday said the apex body had advised its members to desist from making "unsolicited offers" to the customers of the beleagured company, which has earned the dubious reputation of being 'India's Enron'.

The IT industry in the country was "mature" enough to resist such undesirable practices and poaching on the customer base of Satyam, whose business continuity needs to be ensured, he told PTI.

The government had taken the right steps in the matter and Nasscom was hopeful that new board with proven track record of its directors would restore credibility of Satyam taking care of the liquidity aspect and uninterrupted business schedules, Natrajan said.

It was important to ensure that in the outsourcing, customers did not lose their faith in Indian companies, he stressed.
