Bengaluru: Global software major Wipro Ltd. will hire 25,000 more techies in Karnataka, especially Bengaluru, its chairman Azim Premji said on Wednesday.
“We will add 25,000 more IT jobs in Karnataka where we already employ over 55,000 people and are expanding each of our businesses,” Premji said at the state’s global investors meet (GIM) here.

The city-headquartered Wipro group has global IT services, consumer care and lighting, aerospace and healthcare systems business with the US-based GE, among others.

“We are endorsing the fact that Karnataka is a very hospitable and a very progressive state to investors,” Premji said at the inaugural ceremony of the three-day mega event at the Bangalore Palace grounds.

Admitting that Bengaluru had its infrastructural constrains, he said the city was a source of best technical talent, nice weather, strong science background and cosmopolitan nature.

“I hope Karnataka continues to invest in infrastructure to be one of the fastest growing states in the country,” Premji added.
