TCS bags IT contract from Karnataka government

The new SDC will provide better operation and management control and minimise overall cost of data management, IT resource management, deployment and other costs, TCS said in a press statement.

However, the company did not divulge financial details on the contract received from Karnataka.

"E-governance is the only good road to good governance and while technology is expensive, not using technology is even more expensive," Government of Karnataka e-Governance Department Principal Secretary M N Vidyashankar said.

TCS will assist the government of Karnataka in establishing a reliable and efficient SDC.
The company has already done similar e-governance projects on behalf of the states of Puducherry and Uttar Pradesh.

TCS is already associated with the Centre for e- Governance in setting up the new Secretariat Local Area Network (LAN). It has also been managing the entire Secretariat LAN of the government of Karnataka for five years, the company said.
Shares of TCS were trading at Rs 929.90 on the BSE today, down 0.17 per cent from the previous close.
