Meanwhile, TCS shares rose 0.5 percent as investors on profit booking after a sharp fall on Thursday in anticipation of a disappointing earnings and also owing to global jitters.

At 12:11 pm, Infosys shares were at Rs 1,041, down 1 percent and TCS at 2,341, up 0.5 percent. Earlier in the day, the company shares fell down by 5.31 percent to a Rs 996.15 , a 52-week low.

Investors in TCS had lost about Rs 10,000 crore on Thursday as the shares declined along with the broad market.

Infosys' net profit rose 4.9 percent on quarter to Rs 3,606 crore in July-September, beating market expectations as it racked up new business client wins. TCS on Thursday said its net profit rose 4.3 percent to Rs 6,586 crore boosted by an improvement in margins but said uncertainties in environment had resulted in holdbacks in discretionary spend by customers.

However, Infosys slashed revenue guidance due to its recent performance and "near-term uncertain business outlook".
