"Those protesting were not in any shift hence the call centre ran smoothly," said Sunil Yadav, spokesperson of the company.
The protest was called off in the afternoon after the salary for one month was released, said officials.
A few days ago, drivers of the ambulance service had gone on strike demanding pending salary. They did not attend to patients for an entire day across the state despite the imposition of ESMA on the ambulance service.
A probe has been set up by the state government in the previous strike by the drivers.
