    In dollar terms, the revenue from IT services registered a quarter-on-quarter growth of 2.1 per cent at USD 1.83 billion, in line with its guidance of USD 1.82 million to USD 1.85 million.

    For the October-December 2015 quarter, Wipro said it expects revenues from IT services business to be in the range of USD 1,841 million to USD 1,878 million.

    Commenting on the performance, Wipro Chief Executive Officer T K Kurien said: "During the quarter, we grew IT Services Revenues in dollar terms by 3.1 per cent in constant currency and maintained margins in a narrow range."

    The IT services segment added 6,607 people to take the total headcount to 1,68,396 employees as of September 30, 2015.

    The firm added 67 new customers during the quarter. "Our investments in next-gen delivery practices generated productivity to significantly mitigate the impact of wage hikes and utilisation on operating margins," Wipro Chief Financial Officer Jatin Dalal said.

    The impact of cross-currency on operating margins was compensated by the benefits from rupee depreciation, he added. Wipro's IT products segment delivered revenue of Rs 540 crore (USD 83 million) in the reported quarter.
