Wipro, India’s third largest software services provider, said on Tuesday that it has rolled out “high single-digit” wage hikes for its offshore employees.

“Wipro Ltd has announced salary hikes for eligible employees, effective June 1, 2018. On an average, the increments are in the high single digits for offshore employees,” Wipro said in a statement.

It added that increments for on-site employees are “in the low single digits”.

“Top performers and those working on future focused niche technologies and domains have been rewarded with substantially higher increases,” the statement said.

However, Wipro did not specify the exact details of the wage hikes or the number of employees that were offered the pay hike.

Earlier this year, larger rival Infosys had said it would roll out salary hikes ranging from “mid-single digit to high-single digit” for majority of its employees, effective from April onwards.
