The company said that it expected first-quarter revenues to grow in the -0.3 to 2 per cent range largely on account of seasonal weakness in its India business and retail vertical.
Analysts said Wipro's Q1 guidance was "disappointing" as some of its rivals like Tata Consultancy Services and HCL Technologies expect higher sales growth in the first quarter.
Analysts were also worried that its margins could take a hit after plans to give 6-8 per cent wage hikes to employees in off site work locations and two-three per cent wage hike to on site employees. The stock was last trading at Rs 555, down 5.14 per cent on the National Stock Exchange. Other IT stocks were little unchanged over last Thursday's close.
