WIPRO Infotech, the India and Middle East IT business arm of Wipro, has
bagged an IT outsourcing contract from Employees’ State Insurance
Corporation (ESIC) worth Rs 1,182 crore.
The contract—one of the largest e-governance projects to be awarded in India—is spread over 78 months under the build-own-operatetransfer (BOOT) mode.
Wipro will implement software packages, build the IT infrastructure, and establish an automatic system for providing ID cards under the social security scheme.

ESCI invited bids for the project, called Project Panchdeep, which include identification of more than one crore subscribers and their family members covered under ESIC and connecting all locations across the country.
