They got mails from Bharti Airtel asking them to attend a meeting with the HR officials to discuss "way ahead and next step", an employee working for the Norwegian telecom company's Indian subsidiary in Andhra Pradesh circle said.
Both the companies had entered into an agreement for the deal in February 2017.
"They told me that post merger, they have no place for my position. They offered me five months salary and asked my resignation letter. I have not decided what to do, the employee told PTI on condition of anonymity.
Airtel offered "good financial" package besides continuance of medical insurance and free calls to the dropouts, the source said.
"Its inevitable that in a post-integration scenario such as this, not all people from Telenor India will find meaningful roles within Airtel.
"We are ensuring that these people get appropriate support such as continued financial and medical allowances along with the assistance of our placement partners, the spokesperson said in an email reply.
The mail received by Telenor employees said "You must be aware that Telenor (India) Communications Private Limited has been integrated with Bharti Airtel Ltd. With regards to this legal merger, we invite you for a personal discussion with the Airtel Team to inform you about way ahead and next steps. Be available for the meeting as per the details below."
Telenor India runs operations in seven circles -- Andhra Pradesh (and Telangana), Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh (East), UP (West) and Assam.
