A growing number of young IT professionals in India are seen to be suffering from lifestyle diseases. Keeping this in view the government is planning a workplace health policy for those working in this sector.
Discussing this issue, Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Anbumani Ramadoss recently said he would soon be meeting with IT Minister, A. Raja on this matter.
They intend to soon organise a conference to be attended by members of the IT industry, where they will form an IT-related workplace health policy.
The conference would be either held in Chennai or Bangalore. Expressing concern over people suffering from cardiac problems, strokes and mental disorders, as early as 25 and 26, he said such people face a lot of work-related stress and peer pressure.
