Mini

In an interview with CNBC-TV18, Kishor Patil, Co-Founder, Managing Director and CEO at KPIT, said, "Most of the growth has come into the fixed price projects, which has helped the company to use other parameters such as productivity improvement, more offshoring and better realization in terms of different business models." Patil believes with all these three parameters, KPIT has been in a position to increase growth.

KPIT Technologies reported its Q2FY22 earnings numbers. The company reported more than doubling of its September quarter net profit at Rs 65.1 crore, and also upped its performance guidance for the remainder of the fiscal as demand for services has revived fast. The Pune-headquartered company had posted a post-tax net profit of Rs 27.1 crore in the year-ago period. Its total income grew to Rs 600 crore from Rs 487 crore in the year-ago period and Rs 577 crore in the previous quarter.
