In fact, in all contracts (existing), there is a contractual clause to renegotiate the rates when it is up for renewal. When there are fresh new contracts and competency is involved, and customer is willing to pay for the expertise, we will raise the rates. For existing contracts up for renewal, we will raise the rates by 3-5% and for new ones, the hike will be 5-10%," company CEO S Ramadorai said.
