Computational Research Laboratories (CRL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Consultancy Services which is part of the TATA Group. CRL is headquartered in Pune, India and has a branch office in US.

In November 2007, a supercomputer named EKA was built at CRL with technical support from Hewlett-Packard and $30 million USD of funding from Tata Sons. At the time it was the fastest supercomputer in Asia and 4th fastest in the world.[1] As per the results of the International Supercomputing Conference held in November 2010, EKA was the 47th fastest supercomputer in the world.[2]

In 2006, Dr. Narendra Karmarkar was invited to work in CRL[3] but in July 2007 he left CRL because of internal differences arising between him and the Tata group.[4]

In 2012, Tata Consultancy Services has acquired Computational Research Labs for $34 million.[5][6]
