Company Profile
Wipro was previously known as Western India Vegetable Products Ltd was started by Mr.M.H Premji. The company manufactured vegetable oil, vegetable ghee and laundry soap. In 1966, upon the untimely demise of M.H. Premji, his son, Mr.Azim Hasham Premji, a 21-year-old student of engineering at Stanford University, was called upon to run the company. Under him, Wipro embarked on an ambitious phase of expansion. The business diversified into fluid power, soaps, toiletries, lighting and baby care products, and distribution was considerably expanded. Some of the important consumer products made by Wipro include soaps, baby care products, bulbs, tube lights, shampoos, powder etc. The financial strength of the consumer care division powered further diversifications, particularly in infotech and healthcare.

The Infotech era began in the late seventies and Wipro set up its IT business in Bangalore in 1980. Wipro became the No.1 listed company in the country in just 15 years. In a reorganisation, the firm went public with Wipro Technologies, the global IT services subsidiary, whose gross income grew by 65 percent to reach Rs.1042 crore($240 million).Wipro's software business was assessed at SEI CMM Level 5(.Wipro's technology divisions, global R&D and telecom solutions contributed 46 percent of the software revenue, and the balance was accounted for by enterprise solutions business.

Sales and other incomes of the second division, Wipro Infotech, the Indian IT services and products business that takes care of networking solutions, customer services, computers and peripherals, grew by 20 percent to Rs.825 crore.

Wipro Technologies soon plans to tap the global capital body through an issue of American Depository Receipts(ADR) or Global Depository Receipts(GDR). It established its headquarters in Santa Clara, US, with Mr.Vivek Paul as the company's president and CEO.
Mr.Azim H. Premji is presently the Chairman. Mr.Premji owns about 75 percent of the Wipro stock. He also happens to be the richest Indian in the world.

    Directions (Q. 11-25): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are given in bold to help you to locate them while answering some of the questions.
    The health of nations can be measured by the food security and well-being of their people. An innovative programme in India shows how botanic gardens can contribute to that well-being by educating people about the uses of local biodiversity, particularly for healthcare and income-generation.

    In 1994, the Tropical Botanic Garden and Research Institute in Kerala launched two outreach programmes – “Herbs for All and Health for All” and “Plants for All and Wealth for All”. The programmes teach people how to take care of their food, nutrition, hygiene and health by making the best use of the plant resources around them.
    The Research Institute selected four rural villages as partners. A team of scientists, including botanists, experts in Ayurveda (a holistic system of healing, which evolved among the sages of India some 3000-5000 years ago), and sociologists visited the villages and met with local leaders to explain the programmes. The villages selected representatives to attend a two-day workshop in Kerala devoted to agro biodiversity and conservation.
    The workshop particularly highlighted the role of home gardens as a tool for the community management of genetic resources. The students visited a model home garden at the institute, composed of many different medicinal and ornamental plants and vegetables. They were encouraged to take samples from the home garden with them when they returned to their villages.

    The next step was intensive training on primary health care and the conservation and sustainable use of plant diversity. The trainees, a core group of 10 people selected from the workshop participants by each village, learned how to treat common ailments with plants conserved at the Botanic Garden.
    At the end of the training, they were furnished with seedlings of medicinal plants and lesser known fruits and vegetables, as well as practical information on cultivating them back home.
    Returning to their villages, the trainees each adopted 20 local families to educate in the preparation and use of plant-based herbal medicines, stressing the need for self- reliance in the primary health care of family members. The programme has since been extended to other villages and the Botanic Garden and Research Institute has widened its reach even further by producing and distributing brochures, fliers and books in the local language on primary health care, commonly cultivated medicinal and aromatic plants and wild edible fruits and vegetables. The Kerala programme has been recognized by the World Bank and international organizations as an inspiration for projects in developing countries.
