The company has declared a dividend of Rs 7 per share.

"We experienced robust volume growth in Q2, driven by good demand across multiple industry verticals... Large deal wins this quarter, a good pipeline, and bottoming out of the retail sector softness positions us well," TCS CEO and MD Rajesh Gopinathan said.

He added that the company continues to gain share in the fast growing 'digital spend' of its customers.

"Our investment programme remains geared for growth. Continued investments in digital design and transformational capabilities are paying off, and it shows in the strong growth in our Digital business," TCS CFO V Ramakrishnan said.

TCS' digital revenue saw an increase of 31 percent year-on-year and accounted for 19.7 percent of the company's revenues.

During the quarter, TCS saw its IT attrition rate (LTM) come down by 0.3 percent sequentially to 11.3 percent. It added 15,868 employees (gross) and 3,404 people (net) in the September 2017 quarter, taking its total headcount to 3,89,213 people.

The company recruited 3,725 employees outside India, bringing the total to 6,979 in the first half of the fiscal year.
