The call center’s are thriving rapidly in the Indian subcontinent. India today is a flourishing IT industry, with the second  largest English speaking population in the world after the United States . With educated and cheap manpower readily available, the outsourcing business is at its zenith in India. In the United States, a company will have to shell out at-least 1600 dollars per month, approximately Rs. 96,000 to employ a customer care executive. However in India, the company pays them around 15000 INR a month, that too for grueling and exhausting nights shifts.

With this economical advantage, India today has become the hub of global business outsourcing. Even though the outsourcing business has generated tremendous employment, it has adversely affected its employees. Working at night can have a detrimental impact on the human body.

This process can be nerve wrecking and one is desperate to this bust the stress and hypertension.
