IT major TCS reported a 4.3% growth in its consolidated net profit at Rs 6586 crore on 0.1% decline in revenue to Rs 29284 crore in Q2 September 2016 over Q1 June 2016. The result was announced after market hours yesterday, 13 October 2016.
Commenting on the company's Q2 performance, CEO and MD, N Chandrasekaran said it has been an unusual Q2 for TCS.

In addition, volatility in markets like India and Latin America also muted revenue growth, he said. It has been a good quarter from a profitability perspective where despite multiple headwinds the company's disciplined approach and focus on operations has helped it deliver a strong margin performance, Chandrasekaran said.
Rajesh Gopinathan, Chief Financial Officer of TCS said that Q2 September 2016 has been a quarter of good financial performance with sequential improvement in profitability and strong cash generation despite multiple headwinds including global currency and market volatility through the quarter.

PSU OMCs will be in focus. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, approved the mechanism for revision of ethanol price for supply to Public Sector Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) to carry out the Ethanol Blended Petrol (EBP) Programme. For the next sugar season 2016-17 during ethanol supply period from 1st December, 2016 to 30th November, 2017, the administered price of ethanol for the EBP Programme will be Rs 39 per litre.
Additionally, charges will be paid to the ethanol suppliers as per actuals in case of Excise Duty and VAT/GST and transportation charges as decided by OMCs. If the need arises to increase/reduce the retail selling price of petrol by PSU OMCs, then such increase/reduction would proportionately factor in the requirement of maintaining the fixed cost of purchase of ethanol during the ethanol supply year.
The prices of ethanol will be reviewed and suitably revised by Government at any time during the ethanol supply period that is from 1st December, 2016 to 30th November, 2017 depending upon the prevailing economic situation and other relevant factors. The revision in ethanol prices will facilitate the continued policy of the Government in providing price stability and remunerative prices for ethanol suppliers.
