"We have chartered a new course for Wipro by demerging our diversified Non IT businesses.

I am confident that the demerger will enhance value for all our stakeholders and provide fresh momentum for growth for each of our businesses," Wipro Chairman Azim Premji said in a statement.

Wipro on Thursday said it will demerge its non-IT businesses like Consumer Care & Lighting into a new company, a move which will allow it to focus exclusively on information technology.
