Republicans outsource fundraising to India:
The US Republican Party now has a band of young and enthusiastic fund-raisers in Noida and Gurgaon.
HCL eServe, the business process outsourcing arm of the Shiv Nadar-promoted HCL Technologies, has bagged a project to undertake a fund-raising campaign for the US Republican Party over the telephone.
This is the first time such a project has been handed out to a company outside the US. The market research and public relations companies engaged by the party usually undertake such projects.
