The appreciation of the Indian rupee against some currencies, especially the US dollar, has come as good news for many, but for those in the BPO and IT sector, it means no more Saturday night partying.

Several IT and BPO firms in Bangalore have decided that their employees will have to work on Saturdays too in order to counter the negative impact of the appreciating rupee.

Do you think this is a step in the right direction? Or will this demotivate IT & BPO staff? Could increased work hours lead to less productivity?

Instead of making employees work for longer hours, should the IT industry come up with better plans to counter the crisis?
