NOIDA, India, March 16, 2011 - HCL Technologies is deeply saddened by the natural calamity and loss of
lives in Japan and offers its heartfelt prayers and support to this resilient

The company continues to keep a close watch on the situation and is in
touch with all diplomatic and related agencies to ensure the safety and
security of its employees in Japan. Currently all HCL employees on ground
there are safe. The HCL senior leadership is in touch with the leadership
team in Japan and monitoring the situation closely. In the next few days, a
senior level delegation from India will be travelling to Japan to ensure
on-ground support. This delegation will be holding an Open House for all
employees at relevant locations in Japan.

Meanwhile the company is working with its Japan based customers to ensure
that its employees have access to all possible options, like:

1. Employees have an option of working from home

2. Employees may work out of an alternate location like Osaka, China,
Singapore or India on Japan timings

3. Employees may proceed on leave in consultation with their manager and
spend time with their families inside or outside Japan. They may also choose
to send their families to an alternate location.

The company's travel desk is geared to assist with all these arrangements
if so required.

Since outbound communication is erratic in such times HCL has ensured
that hotlines are set up for employee assistance along with providing contact
details of HR SPOCs. The company will ensure that periodic communication is
sent to its employees to continuously apprise them of the situation. It has
also created a section on the company website (www.hcltech.com) to
enable both customers and employees to remain apprised of the latest
situation. Families of Indian employees based in Japan would of course be
concerned and teams at HCL are reaching out to them to ensure that they have
periodic and correct information on the situation.

In such trying times, the last thing Japan needs is panic from the
international community. At HCL employees of all nationalities are equally
important and the company will strive hard to make them feel safe and secure.
There are contingency plans of quick evacuation of all employees and their
families if the situation arises. However, it appears that we are far from
that situation right now and it is important that we are supportive of the
nation rebuilding initiative in this hour of crisis. Japan as a nation is
showing great maturity and equanimity in dealing with the crisis and HCL
respects this.

HCL is also equally committed on providing humanitarian support to the
country in all possible ways. The company is working with the Japanese
Consulate and related agencies such as Japanese Culture Centre to decide on
options to support the relief measures, having provided assistance during
natural disasters in many past instances in India and other countries.

As a family of 72,000, HCL continues to pray for Japan to bide over these
difficult times. All its employees observed a 2 minute silence on 15th March
, to mark their solidarity for people of Japan.
