Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the TCS Japan Technology and Culture Academy in Japan on 2 September 2014. The Academy was opened during Narendra Modi's five-day visit to Japan.
The TCS Japan Technology and Culture Academy is a Joint Venture of Tata Consultancy Services and Mitsubishi Corporation and the aim of establishing this academy is to enhance the technological and cultural knowledge between Indian and Japanese IT professionals.
Initially, TCSJ will provide work to more than 4000 employees in Japan and in a dedicated centre located in Pune, India. It will provide a mix of global talent and capabilities combined with local expertise and knowledge to Japanese companies.
Narendra Modi also flagged off the first batch of 48 students who will be going to India for 6-8 months of training. This training will be followed by on-the-job training on projects for six months.
In April 2014, Tata Consultancy Services and Mitsubishi Corp announced that they were merging their IT operations in Japan to create a new global scale player in the Japanese IT industry. Tata Consultancy Services have 51 per cent stake in the new venture called Tata Consultancy Services Japan (TCSJ).
