The acquisition will strengthen the presence of Hinduja Global Solutions in India by adding service capabilities and clients in the telecom and banking & financial services (BFS) verticals.

Hinduja Global Solutions will be adding more than 7,000 customer experience professionals. It will also add seven delivery centers in six cities including Noida, Raipur, Indore, Mangalore, Pune and Bangalore.

“Our employees have found a new home in HGS and will play a pivotal role in augmenting their India footprint. A dedicated unit has been set up to ensure smooth transfer for all employees. There would be no loss of jobs or headcount reduction,” said Elango R, chief human resources officer and head Emerging Geographies Business Unit of Mphasis.

“We see an environment of bullishness in India where companies are getting back into investment mode and looking for ways to enable higher growth. This acquisition is opportunistic and fits well into our growth plans. It adds scale and a wider footprint even as we enhance our capabilities and gain an outstanding team of domain specialists to cater to our clientele,” said Partha De Sarkar, chief executive officer of HGS.
