According to Reuters, TCS saw an "all-time low" attrition rate at the end of the June quarter.

For the IT services staff, attrition was at its lowest in 27 quarters, chief executive N Chandrasekaran told reporters in Mumbai, after the company beat expectations for the fiscal first quarter that ended June 30.

The churn is less than 10 percent on a leading-twelve-months basis.

TCS, whose customers include Citigroup, BP PLC, and AstraZeneca PLC, announced its results after the Mumbai markets closed. Its shares were down about 1 per cent compared with a 1 per cent gain in the overall index.
