The company has also 4,000 employees at its Trichy operations in Tamil Nadu, about 330 km from south of Chennai, making it one of the largest white-collar employers in the southern state in healthcare services.
The additional hiring will enable the company to sustain its 30 per cent cumulative average growth rate in this tech hub.
