Chandrasekaran said that while the dip in business from the insurance vertical is nothing to worry about, the company does not expect it the deliver high growth. The inclusion of India among the high growth markets was a surprise and Chandrasekaran tempered expectations, saying he does not expect domestic revenues to rise so well.
In the backdrop of the slew of IT-driven announcements by the new government, Chandrasekaran said TCS expects some opportunities to arise in the space but will wait for them to show up before changing its stance. “ From a India point of view, we are still cautious. I wouldn’t say that we will start to see high growth,” he said.
