Country's largest IT firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) today said its net profit fell 3.6 per cent to Rs 6,531 crore in the December 2017 quarter.

The Mumbai-headquartered company had posted a net profit of Rs 6,778 crore in the October-December quarter of the previous fiscal, the company said in a filing.

Its from operations during the quarter under review stood at Rs 30,904 crore, up 3.9 per cent from Rs 29,735 crore in the year-ago period, as per Indian Accounting Standard (Ind-AS).

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

"We wrapped 2017 with a strong performance in the December quarter... . As lagging parts of our portfolio turn around, and areas of softness reduce, we are well placed for stronger growth ahead," and MD said.

He added that the company signed its first over USD 50 million deal in 'Digital' this quarter.

New deal ramp-ups, increasing traction in Digital, robust demand pick up in Retail and continuing momentum in most of TCS' industry verticals gave the company strong volume growth in a seasonally weak quarter, N Ganapathy Subramaniam said.

TCS' revenue saw an increase of about 40 per cent year-on-year and accounted for 22.1 per cent of the company's revenues.
