TCS to hire 25,000 this fiscal; govt orders seen fetching 10% revenue


“Currently, our revenue from government projects is very small and we want to raise it to at least 10 per cent of our total revenue in the next three years,” TCS Vice-President (Head global government industry group) Tanmoy Chakrabarty said. “We have an employee strength of 1.45 lakh people and we want to add 25,000 more people this year to support the government projects,” he said. In the domestic market, the company was developing a Rs 1,000-crore ‘Passport Seva Project’ to provide speedy passport delivery services.  TCS is also looking to tap opportunities to be offered by Unique Identification Database (UID). “We would like to avail opportunities to be thrown by UID projects although they are still in early stages,” he said.

TCS is also keen to engage in E-Panchayat projects, which are expected to be rolled out by the Ministry of Panchayati Raj.
Besides looking to capture government projects here, the company is also bullish about government projects in overseas markets.
The company has decided to tap such projects in emerging overseas markets such as China, Middle East, Africa, US, Latin America and South East Asia.
