TIL’s passport case business crosses milestone of 500,000 pieces
December 01, 2017
The Leather products team of Tata International’s (TIL) introduced a new product — passport cases — in August 2017. The cases were made available in passport offices across India at the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Passport Seva Kendras (PSKs). This business crossed a milestone in November 2017, having received more than 500,000 orders.
The cases are available in three variants: PU, leather and premium leather. While the initial projections from TCS were for around 2,000 pieces per day, the actual sales peaked at 15,000 pieces per day. The production team at the Chennai unit supported the sales by ramping up production from the planned 2,000 pieces per day to 18,000 pieces production per day, within the span of 52 days.
The TCS team celebrated by cutting a cake at the Delhi PSK. TIL representative Ms Richaa Arora was present for the occasion. TIL teams in Dewas and Chennai also celebrated the achievement.
