New Delhi: Shares of IT major Wipro on Thursday dropped 6 percent after the company posted a 6 percent decline in net profit for March quarter that was battered by the fallout of Covid-19.

The scrip plunged 6 percent to Rs 175.30 on the BSE. On the NSE, shares of the company fell from 3.51 percent to Rs 180.

"Wipro's results were weak along expected lines. The company desisted from its usual practice of providing quarterly revenue guidance," Emkay Global Financial Services Ltd said in a report.

The company, which is the first among its peers to announce financial numbers for the quarter, said it will resume providing revenue guidance after it sees "increased certainty" on-demand and supply-side factors.

Wipro, which posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 2,345.2 crore in March quarter compared to Rs 2,493.9 crore in the year-ago period, said it expects revenue in June quarter to decline that will put a huge pressure on margins.

The Bengaluru-based company's revenue increased 4.6 percent to Rs 15,711 crore in the January-March quarter as against Rs 15,006.3 crore in the year-ago period.
