The newspaper quoted an unnamed MasterCard employee as saying that the outsourcing move will result in the loss of jobs for 300 permanent employees.
The move will also result to the redundancy of 300 subcontracted jobs.
However, a MasterCard spokesperson did not disclose the number of jobs that will be affected but told the newspaper that the figures in the report were not accurate.
