In a BSE filing, HCL Technologies said 99.59 percent shareholders had voted in favour of the proposal.

In July, HCL Technologies had announced a Rs 4,000 crore buyback programme for FY19 at a price of Rs 1,100 per equity share.

The buyback is part of the company's strategy to return more than 50 percent of the company's net income to the shareholders.

In a separate filing, the company said it has launched HCL Turbo -- an artificial intelligence (Al)-based, end-to-end testing automation platform, aimed at communication service providers.
