TCS has delivered a broad-based performance, signalling a fast-track recovery in its growth as clients increasingly rely on technology to overcome economic stress created by the ongoing pandemic. India’s largest software exporter posted a net profit of ₹7,504 crore for the September-ended quarter, a 6.45 per cent growth compared to the ₹7,049 crore posted in the June-ended quarter.

However, on a year-on-year basis, profits dipped 6.8 per cent compared to ₹8,058 crore in the corresponding period last year.

Revenues on a sequential basis came in at ₹40,135 crore, a 4.7 per cent growth over the ₹38,322 crore posted in the June-ended quarter. Year-on-year, revenues grew almost 3 per cent on revenues of ₹38,977
