Re Joint Venture

Capita Group PLC

11 November 2003


             Leading UK and Indian companies form BPO joint venture

The Capita Group Plc ('Capita'), the UK's leading professional support services
organisation, has entered a new stage in its partnership with Mastek Ltd
('Mastek'), India's leading IT application outsourcing company.

Capita, which provides services that reach 33 million people in the UK each
year, and Mastek are forming a joint venture through the acquisition by Capita
of 60% of Mastek BPO Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mastek Limited. The
company, which will be renamed Capita Mastek BPO Limited, will continue to
operate from its current facility in Thane. It will serve as a business process
outsourcing (BPO) delivery unit for both Capita and Mastek, focusing on back
office transaction processing.

Capita's Executive Chairman, Rod Aldridge, welcomed the development, which is
designed to meet the needs of Capita's private sector clients who are seeking
alternative service delivery models:

'We have listened to prospective customers, particularly in the financial
services sector, and have worked to develop a range of scalable and adaptable
outsourcing solutions that meet their individual needs. Our joint facility with
Mastek in India provides our clients with an extended range of service delivery
options. We have successfully worked with Mastek for a number of years and
believe that Capita Mastek BPO Ltd will hit the ground running as a new force in
this market. It combines both companies' complementary expertise and we both
benefit from a partnership with an established local presence and knowledge.'

Mr Ashank Desai, Chairman of Mastek Ltd commented:

'Mastek and Capita have enjoyed a strong partnership for eight years and this
development is a natural evolution of our relationship. We have worked jointly
with Capita on some of the most complex IT projects in the UK. We understand
each other well and work together as a successful team. The BPO joint venture is
a testimony to our partnership philosophy.'

'This new initiative in BPO brings together the strengths of both organisations.
Capita has strong UK based client relationships, an established sales and
marketing network, best of breed experience in the BPO space and world class
processes. Mastek's IT capabilities, well established local infrastructure and
know-how complement Capita's expertise. The real winners will be clients, who
will enjoy the best of both worlds.'

Capita's acquisition of 60% of the share capital of Mastek BPO Limited from
Mastek Limited is valued at approximately £285,000 (INR21.4 million) and is
subject to regulatory approval from FIPB and RBI.
