MUMBAI: The country's largest software services firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Tuesday reported 10.8 per cent growth in consolidated net profit to Rs 8,131 crore for the quarter ended June 30.

"We have had a steady start to the new fiscal year. We see customers continuing to spend on their growth and transformation initiatives, and that is showing in our strong order book and deal pipeline this quarter," TCS CEO and Managing Director Rajesh Gopinathan said.

Digital revenue accounted for 32.2 per cent of the topline, growing 42.1 per cent in the said quarter over the previous year.

The company had a net employee addition of 12,356 employees - its highest in five years, taking the total headcount to 4,36,641 people.
