Parekh has been reappointed as MD & CEO of the software services giant from July 1, 2022, to March 31, 2027, subject to the approval of shareholders.

"It may be noted that Salil Parekh has no relationship with any member of the board of directors and meets all the criteria to be reappointed as chief executive officer and managing director under applicable laws including circulars issued by stock exchanges from time to time," India's second largest software services provider said in an exchange filing.
