After Narayana Murthy, now it is Wipro Chief Azim Premji against reservation and reiterates importance of merit based employment in his company.
A day after Manmohan Singh asked industries to broadbase employment and make it representative, Wipro chairman Azim Premji made it clear that his firm would recruit people only on the basis of merit thus ruling out reservation at Wipro.
We compete with global companies. We are primarily in the service business in terms of the mix of our consolidated revenues”, Azim Premji said, adding, “Service business is highly people-dependent. People make you (the company) successful or the people make you less successful.
He pointed out that close to 80 per cent of Wipro’s global revenues come from the US, Europe, Japan and parts of the Middle-East. We have no alternative but to hire the best talent available within India and the best talent available globally to man our positions – critical positions, non-critical positions, (and) programming positions.
Responding to a question on the proposed move to reserve 27 per cent seats in higher educational institutions for Other Backward Classes, Premji said, “We appreciate the compulsions the country is going through in terms of reservation. But we (Wipro) are an organisation which requires selection on merits.”

Here is the sarcastic version of Premji’s comments. Someone spend good enough time in coming up with this interesting write up! Interesting read!
I completely support the PM and all the politicians for promoting Reservations. Let’s start the reservation with our cricket team. We should have 10 percent reservation based on religion. 30 percent for OBC, SC/ST like that. Cricket rules should be modified accordingly. The boundary circle should be reduced for an SC/ST player. The four hit by an OBC player should be considered as a six and a six hit by a OBC player should be counted as 8 runs. An OBC player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century.
We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like Shoaib aktar should not bowl fast balls to our OBC player. Bowlers should bowl maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour to an OBC player. Any delivery above this speed should be made illegal.
Also we should have reservation in Olimpics. In the 100 meters race, an OBC player should be given a gold medal if he runs 80 meters.
There can be reservation in Government jobs also. Let’s recruit SC/ST and OBC pilots for aircrafts which are carrying the ministers and politicians (that can really help the country.. )
Ensure that only SC/ST and OBC doctors do the operations for the ministers and other politicians. (Another way of saving the country..)
Let’s be creative and think of ways and means to guide INDIA forward. Let’s show the world that INDIA is a GREAT country. Let’s be proud of being an INDIAN..
May the good breed of politicans like ARJUN SINGH long live.
I totally agree with him!!!
Wonderful writeup, isn’t it? Thanks to the (wo)man behind this story!
