INDIA’S TOP IT company Wipro is in talks with the MP Government for providing consultancy in e-governance. The company is already providing consultancy to 13 state governments.

“If the dialogue proves fruitful Wipro Infotech would provide consultancy to the State’s Transport Department, land records, stamp duty registration, capacity building, setting up of a data centre and police automation,” informed Wipro Infotech’s chief executive (strategic sales), Vishwanathan K S.

Roots in MP

Way back in 1986, Wipro had opened its area office in the State capital and since then, the company has 300-plus customers in MP including MP Treasuries and BHEL.

He told

Hindustan Times

that against MP’s expected growth of 20 per cent in the IT sector, the company has been moving much ahead. Vishwanathan K S was in the town in connection with opening of the company’s regional office.

Inaugurating the office, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan expressed the hope that IT sector would create employment opportunities in the State and help check corruption.

The Wipro top executive further said the company has been steadily expanding its presence, and this is yet another milestone in its rapidly growing national footprint. Bhopal would be a strategic location for the company due to its strong connection to operating markets. The State has been chosen for its favourable investment climate, he added.

“Opening of the office also reaffirms our commitment to be close to our customers who are early adopters of IT processes, tools and technologies,” he maintained.

Way back in 1986, Wipro had opened its area office in the State capital and since then, the company has 300-plus customers in MP including MP Treasuries and BHEL. “We’ve computerised 222 blocks in the State in treasuries, which is a major achievement,” points out Vishwanathan.
