BENGALURU: The shareholders of Wipro Ltd have approved the reappointment of Patrick J Ennis and Patrick Dupuis as independent directors on the board of the company.

“The aforesaid resolutions have been passed by Members with requisite majority, through postal ballot by remote e-voting process," the filing said.
