On Friday, the company reported a nine per cent growth in net profit at 12,434 crore in January-March quarter of FY24 due to strong domestic business even as the company struggled in its key markets overseas.

In the entire fiscal year, TCS net profit surged 9 per cent to 45,908 crore, while the revenue went up to 2,40,893 crore from 2,25,458 crore a year ago.

However, its domestic business, which saw nearly 38 per cent growth in revenues, helped the company post a 3.5 per cent growth in revenues to 61,237 crore during the quarter.

“It is difficult to say when growth will return… but FY25 will be better than FY24,” TCS chief executive K Krithivasan was quoted by PTI as saying.
