Employees of IT companies in Hitech City and beyond do not show much interest in exercising their franchise. They quoted several reasons for this. A majority of them come from the districts. They do not get holiday or leave to go to their native places to cast their vote and return. Also, Road Transport Corporation (RTC) and other bus services, knowing about their travel, increase the bus fares on voting day. Many IT employees think that political leaders are not interested in their lot and they need not vote. Last time, 50 per cent IT employees did not vote. They hoping to change this now.
