One major reason for the decline in the shares of large IT companies like Infosys, TCS, and Wipro was the weak revenue growth guidance for the financial year 2023-24 by the sector. The companies anticipated that their first-quarter revenue would fall short of the Street’s expectations. The current fiscal year outlook reflects the impact of high inflation and interest rates.
