Its centres, currently in Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata were devoted to outsourcing, technology and IT applications development projects.
They were the cornerstone of the Group's Rightshore strategy which aimed at offering clients the right resources, at the right location, at reduced cost.
''With this campaign we are acknowledging the significant contributions of each of the Capgeminians to the successful growth of the Indian operations,'' the release said, quoting Mr Baru Rao, Head of Capgemini India.
