Published On: October 27, 2023 - Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy has asked youngsters to follow a 70-hour work week routine voluntarily. He made the statement while speaking on a show hosted by 3one4 Capital, an Indian venture capital firm. He talked about how India has significant potential, but the country's productivity is still amongst the lowest globally. The comments made by Murthy have sparked a debate on social media. While Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal agreed with Murthy, saying, 'it’s not our moment to work less and entertain ourselves,' upGrad founder Ronnie Screwvala disagreed with Murthy's opinion. The quality of work done is more important than clocking in more hours, he said. Join News9's Krishna Kumar and Kartik Malhotra for more on this developing story.
