He added that with a consistent and strong record of deal wins in H1 combined with a healthy pipeline, the company is confident about further growth in revenues as it enters the second half of FY21.

"We will continue to focus on being a trusted partner to our clients and build long term sustainable growth," he said.

The company signed deals worth USD 273.9 million in total contract value (TCV) during the quarter, taking the total TCV deal wins for the first half of the fiscal to USD 454 million. Its active client count was at 310.
