NEW DELHI: Infosys non-executive Chairman Nandan Nilekani today expressed satisfaction at the progress made in bringing stability to the company, saying he will stay only “as long as required”.

Nilekani was brought on-board in August last year, after the then CEO Vishal Sikka and ex-Chairman R Seshasayee had resigned following a bitter boardroom tussle.
