But in the case of HCL it was not right. As, HCL Tech posted a net profit of Rs 4,096 crore, up 17.4 percent, beating analysts’ estimates.
Infosys raised its revenue growth target for the year ending March 2023. While HCL Tech has lowered potential revenue targets.

The company has announced interim dividend per share.
