"We continue our growth momentum with, yet another quarter of stellar growth, driven by a strong demand environment.

"...during the first half of the year, we added, on a net basis, 568 happiest minds. We continue to show healthy cash flows and have improved on our capital return ratios prompting us to declare an interim dividend of Rs 1.75 per equity share, he said.
The record date for the purpose of interim dividend has been fixed on November 10, 2021 and the dividend will be paid on and after November 18, the statement said.
