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".
