Hinduja Global arm secures Rs 2,100-cr UK contract

Mumbai, Feb 20 (UNI): IT service management company Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) on Sunday said its UK-based subsidiary has bagged a Rs 2,100-crore contract from the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) to provide critical customer services to the UK citizens.

“HGS UK has been selected by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) to provide critical customer support to UK citizens for an initial period of two years, with an option to extend further,” the company said in a statement.


“The partnership is already underway having launched earlier last week, and the contract could be worth up to Rs 2,100 crore across the term of the contract, employing over 2,000 ‘Work@Home’ positions across the UK,” the company said.

The advertised cost of the contract is the maximum that can be spent, and the total could be less. “The UKHSA is responsible for NHS Test an Trace and this contract will assist with future contact tracing needs for Covid-19 and other health security risks such as a large flu outbreak or new pandemic,” it said.

Commenting on the development, HGS Executive Director and Group CEO, Partha DeSarkar, said the company has been successfully operating in the UK market for over 10 years.

“While revenues for year ended March 2021 were around GBP 67 million, in the nine months ended December 2021, HGS UK more than doubled its revenues to GBP 87 million. Our public sector business has been a key part of this success story with some marquee clients,” he said.

DeSarkar further said that the significant investments the company made in strengthening our expertise in this vertical, focused sales strategy, Cloud technology, and deployment of Work@Home delivery, have enhanced our presence in this demanding market.
