Quarterly Results are here. TCS first to declare its Results.
The exact impact of the Nationwide Lockdown on the Indian economy is now coming into the picture as all companies start to declare earning results for the Q1 (April- June) 2021. Travel, Automotive, and Industrial sector are among the top losers as they had to stop their entire business for two months at least.
IT and telecom sectors were not so impacted as they were able to shift to work from home efficiently. These are all speculations, and the exact impact will be out once we get to analyze the balance sheets.
TCS is the first among the Nifty 50 to declare its earnings. TCS announced its Q1 result on Jul 9.
