LONDON: First companies outsourced work to India; now even the British government is doing so.

The government here has been attacked for allowing up to 200 of its own jobs to be transferred to India.

The state-owned National Savings and Investments, which runs Premium Bonds, plans to shift part of its operation in the next six months.

It claims the transfer will lessen the burden on taxpayers and secure the future of the business.

But union leaders and politicians condemned the move, saying it represented a betrayal of National Savings workers.

Officials representing the workers, based in Blackpool, said staff is concerned that the operation is being broken up for commercial reasons.
