Well, I don't think there is any reason to lie to the customer at first place considering if you are selling or settling any dispute with the customer, also they would be notified by the services they got offered and that would reflect on the monthly bill. Ultimately, that would put a negative impression on the customer and might lead him/her switching services if false promises are made.

Hence, I strongly believe, be honest with whatever services we offer to the customer.

Well, that totally depends upon the impact the lie would create over the company and the people associated with it if it aims to bring a positive impact, with no means I would say no. But in case the lie is very unprofessional and can cause harm to society I would have to say no, as in future if revealed I'll lose my credibility as a professional.

Yes, if my lie can make a good and positive impact on majority of people and company. Lord krishna who is god of satya, karam, dharam and vachana had also lied in situations which can cause a good impact on others, then who am I just a human!

So, I will definitely lie in such situations.

If I say I would lie for the company, than that'll assert that I can lie for my personal benefit too. But sir lying for personal benefit only makes me happy and will create a series of lies thereafter, I would never do that. Yeah but in a very rare case, if it's extremely necessary for the company and makes a positive impact, than I could think of lying.

Yes, only if the company has any chance to achieve any bigger goal and all that depends on the condition at the same time. I will think the negative side of lying if it affects in future if there are more side effects then I won't lie but if there is more beneficial for the company then I will definitely.

I would never lie sir, even if it creates positive impact.

Do I know to make up that one lie how many other lies I have to say in future?

No. A lie can never yeild a persistent positive outcome. Rather we must deal with the consequences even we are not ready for it, doing that won't harm but will prepare us other unknown challenges.

Absolutely not, I would rather face truth and it's consequences. If I am able to lie for the sake of company then I can lie to anybody including myself to justify almost everything. I would walk away with my head up not the other way.

No, I can't, because I said lie my company would safe from temporary, but not for permanent. By saying lie, in some condition, the problem would solve and you have helped your company from a bug, but I am sure "Because of telling lie in that situation, the company should face so many problems in future".

Sir lying is a sin, but if the company would go bankrupt if I wouldn't lie then I would lie on behalf of the company but later on work on that lie or situation and ultimately turn it to be the truth and face my customers with confidence and would not regret later for the lie I have spoken.

Depend upon situations, if my lie doesn't hurt anyone, depend upon consequences, if its a situation of someone's survival. Then I may tell lie. For personal benefit definitely won't tell lie. But I don't know when I last time lied and I hope that kind of situation not arise where I should compromise with my ethics.

Sir, according to ethics lie is not lie unless and until it give positive result. Most of time lie can be worse situation for company. Lie also can most dangerous for long term goal of company. So most probably I will say no, if lie helps the company to achieve new height without hampering it's reputation, reliability and also helps majority of people then I will not hesitate to go ahead and tell lie.

No need to lie, because lies have no good end products. Even when I lie the truth will still come out. Lies whatever case is normally motivated by corrupted minds and thoughts. The answer to lying lies in hard work to achieve what the company envision. I don't encourage lies.

First, I try to telling truth to tackle the problem by smart work because today one lie created tomorrow also another lie created so it's not a solution for well-reputed organisation, but still not a problem solved to understand the situation and telling lie.

It totally depends upon the situation. If lying is the last option to tackle the situation for my company I have to do it but only if it is the last, otherwise I will use my creativity to deal with the situation because in life we always have the second option. We just need to find it and make it count.

Datta : It's good.

That will depend on how big the lie is. If the lie involves huge risk for the company and for me then I would certainly not lie because my job is to uplift my company and not to assist in degrading it sooner or later. But if it is a small harmless lie with no foreseeable risk then I would consider lying.
