Spread across 265,000 square feet; the company has invested over Rs 230 crore in the development of this facility, which will provide greater flexibility for employees to work in a hybrid mode and enable re-skilling and up-skilling of local talent. 

The new center will also give employees the opportunity to work on next-gen technologies like cloud, AI, and digital across multiple industries, such as telecommunications, banking, retail, aerospace, automobile, logistics, and manufacturing, among others.
