The company, which was among the first ones in the sector to nudge employees to shift back to working from offices, has approximately 55 per cent of its employees working from the office on all working days of the week.

The annual report said there is near-term uncertainty for the business because of a slew of global headwinds, but stressed that there is growth visibility over the medium to long term.

The annual report said the overall revenue growth slowed down to 6.8 per cent in FY24 from 17.6 per cent in the year-ago period.

"If the delayed decision-making and cash conservation seen in some segments through FY 2024 continues into the next fiscal year, it could lead to a moderation in growth in FY 2025," the annual report said.

Its chairman N Chandrasekaran said GenAI technologies will impact almost every sector and the country going forward and enterprises have already invested in cloud, data infrastructure and large processing power.

"GenAI will not only improve productivity but also create an impact we hitherto have not seen or imagined," he said.

Krithivasan said the all-time high order book, continued deal flow and pipeline velocity give it confidence in business momentum, and added, "We see greater opportunities ahead, as businesses become more technology-intensive and depend on technology to drive competitive differentiation and transform their industries." Shares of TCS were trading 0.45 per cent lower at Rs 3,954.80 apiece on the BSE, as against 1.23 per cent correction on the benchmark at 1443 hrs.
