New Delhi: Shares of IT companies tumbled up to 3.7 per cent Friday after Cognizant reported over 15 per cent drop in net income for the quarter ended March, and slashed its full-year revenue growth outlook.

On the BSE, TCS fell 3.70 per cent, Hexaware Technologies 2.73 per cent, Tech Mahindra 2.16 per cent, HCL Tech 1.40 per cent, Wipro 0.87 per cent and Infosys Ltd 0.84 per cent.

TCS was the worst hit among the BSE 30-share pack.

Led by the decline in these scrips, the BSE Information Technology index fell 1.91 per cent to close at 15,659.96.

The US-headquartered company, which has a significant portion of its employees based in India, revised its full-year 2019 revenue growth outlook to 3.6-5.1 per cent in constant currency, significantly less than 7-9 per cent projected just months ago.

The company follows January-December as financial year.

It cited "first quarter underperformance" and likelihood of slower growth in financial services and healthcare as reasons for the massive cut in full-year outlook.

Shares of Cognizant, however, are not listed on India bourses.

A strengthening rupee also weighed on the IT counters.
